In 2013, KTM set a new milestone in the mobilisation of young riders: The KTM 125 Duke was the world's first 125 cc motorbike to offer ABS – thus making the first steps into motorised mobility even safer than ever. And obviously none of the familiar dynamism is lost along the way. On the contrary: The pedigree motorbike technology can now be enjoyed with even greater relaxation – dynamic cornering guaranteed. 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.
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.
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.
Just as on the RC8 R, the four valves in the cylinder head of the 125 Duke 2013 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.
In 2013, the 125 Duke is setting new safety standards 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 are unique chassis qualities in this segment. On the new KTM 125 Duke, the ABS – from Bosch as always with KTM - monitors the function of the powerful brake system with a radially mounted four-piston calliper, which gains even more braking power with the larger brake disc (from 280 to 300 mm in diameter) - 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
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 equally as well as committed cornering. Large contact surfaces ensure optimum control and perfect feedback.
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.
For all its sportiness, the two-piece seat provides surprising long-distance comfort, perfect support and first-class ergonomics for rider and pillion. At 810 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.
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.
