2016 KTM 125 Duke Review

2016 KTM 125 Duke on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

Safe Power…

Already since 2013 KTM is the first manufacturer to offer ABS as standard for a 125 motorcycle. This is not only showing KTM commitment for safety, but it remarks once again how the KTM 125 Duke is up to date with the finest motorcycle technologies, usually reserved for larger capacities. On top of that, the refined four-stroke single cylinder with fuel injection and six-speed transmission provides decent propulsion. And the low fuel consumption ensures a reasonable level of economy. Simply a genuine KTM – and setting new standards for 125s.

2016 KTM 125 Duke www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits


Dynamic cornering fun


Brakes
Since 2013, the 125 Duke has settled a new safety standard with the first ABS in the 125 cc class. A feature that makes the pleasure of the impressive Duke dynamics even safer for 16-year-olds and gives the finishing touch to what is unique chassis quality in this segment. On the new KTM 125 Duke, the ABS – from Bosch as usual with KTM – monitors the function of the powerful brake system with a radially mounted four-piston calliper biting the 300mm diameter front disc – fun without risk, developed in close cooperation with the specialists from Bosch and Brembo. And for the stunt riders among us: the ABS is naturally disengageable.


Frame
11 kW (15 hp) of power with a dry weight of only 127 kg guarantee plenty of riding fun with the 125 Duke. The first-class chassis, with lightweight still trellis frame in the proven KTM design, turns it into a real surfer through the bends. Weight grouped close to the centre of gravity maximise manoeuvrability and precision.


Telescopic fork
The 125 Duke’s high-quality upside-down fork from WP Suspension has the same 43 mm outer tube diameter as the RC8 R – in other words: real racing equipment that guarantees highest levels of stability and precision.


Swingarm
The 125 Duke’s lightweight, high-quality, pin-jointed swingarm is designed and produced according to the same principle as the 690 Duke. The light alloy swingarm with directly linked WP shock absorber excels with extreme torsional stiffness and outstanding tracking stability.


Wheels and tyres
Equally lightweight and delicate as they are stable, the 17 in cast light alloy wheels developed by KTM specifically for the 125 Duke provide a 110 mm tire width at the front and an impressive 150 mm at the rear. The tires impress with tremendous grip in both wet and dry conditions, as well as providing supreme durability.



Everything under control


Ergonomics
The 125 Duke is also a genuine motorcycle in terms of dimensions, providing plenty of space and freedom of movement. The gathered sitting position supports relaxed touring as well as committed cornering. Large contact surfaces ensure optimum control and perfect feedback.


Seat
For all its sportiness, the two-piece seat provides surprising long-distance comfort, perfect support and first-class ergonomics for rider and pillion. With 800 mm the seat height is low enough for a secure standing position, but also high enough for sports-oriented use and a genuine big-bike feeling.


Dashboard
The 125 Duke has everything that distinguishes a genuine KTM from the high-quality chassis components to the multi-function cockpit, which even keeps you up to date with fuel consumption and remaining range. The extensive KTM PowerParts range gives you the option of adding your own individual style.

 

 

Lively, smooth-running four-stroke


Engine
The state-of-the-art, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder, four-stroke engine with twin overhead camshafts, four valves and electronic fuel injection has been developed specifically for the 125 Duke. It effortlessly achieves its peak power of 11 kW (15 hp) and thanks to the balancer shaft, delivers the highest levels of smoothness.


Cylinder head
Just as on the RC8 R, the four valves in the cylinder head of the 125 Duke are actuated by two overhead camshafts and cam levers. This design is not only extremely reliable, but also offers low friction thanks to the ultra-hard carbon coating of the cam levers – releasing even more power.


Silencer
The compact, three-chamber silencer is positioned close to the machine’s overall centre of gravity. This aids centralisation of masses and improves the playful handling of the 125 Duke. Thanks to a regulated catalytic converter, the emissions are exemplary.

Low fuel consumption

Previous


Injection
The intricate engine design, state-of-the-art injection electronics and the close-ratio, six-speed transmission not only help the KTM 125 Duke to achieve impressive performance, but also to moderate fuel consumption. Thanks to the regulated catalytic converter, it produces only minimal emissions.


Fuel tank
The shapely 11 l fuel tank of the 125 Duke not only provides the rider with perfect knee contact, but also with a range of substantially more than 300 km even when ridden on the edge, thanks to the economic engine. .
