KTM 125 DUKE ABS 2013: EASILY MASTEREDBack to Bikes Next Benefit Previous Benefit
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.
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 can naturally be switched off.
