The 2023 KTM 125 Duke is a street bike available at a starting price of Rs. 1,76,937 in India. It is available in only 1 variant and 2 colours. The KTM 125 Duke is powered by 124.7cc BS6 engine which develops a power of 14.3 bhp and a torque of 12 Nm. With both front and rear disc brakes, KTM 125 Duke comes up with anti-locking braking system. This 125 Duke bike weighs 159 kg and has a fuel tank capacity of 13.4 liters.
KTM India has launched the 2022 version of 125 Duke along with a new paint theme. With this, the 2022 iteration of the Austrian brand’s entry-level model is now available in two paint options – Electronic Orange and the new Ceramic White. Both colour options feature a dual-tone finish.
In terms of styling, the Ceramic White option uses black paint for the tubular frame and white finish to the sub-frame along with orange finish to the alloy wheels. Further, the 125 Duke logo, too, is different in the Ceramic White paint option. In contrast, the Electronic Orange theme gets orange colour for the chassis and black paint for the sub-frame and alloy wheels.
The changes are limited to styling revisions in the form of the new paint theme. Thus, the 2022 KTM 125 Duke continues to pack a halogen headlight with LED DRLs, an LED taillight, LED turn indicators, and orange backlit LCD console.
The mechanical specifications, too, remain identical to the previous version and the 125 Duke retains the 124.7cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled motor. Linked to a six-speed gearbox, the engine produces 14.3bhp at 9,250rpm and 12Nm of peak torque at 8,000rpm. The hardware comprises upside-down telescopic front forks, rear mono-shock, and single disc brakes on both wheels.
In India, the KTM 125 Duke rivals the likes of Yamaha MT-15 and Suzuki Gixxer 155 and is priced at Rs 1,78,041 (ex-showroom, Delhi).
