Engine

The KTM 125 DUKE engine not only delivers arm-wrenching torque and hair-raising acceleration, but also good manners in everyday use, all with outstanding fuel economy. This lightweight, compact engine packs a good punch too, with a respectable 11 kW (15 hp). Thanks to the ingenious intake design and the meticulous fuel injection system, the KTM 125 DUKE is ready and waiting to tear-up the streets and the circuits alike.

Power & Torque

A bike as compact and nimble as this one, deserves to pack a solid punch. With 11 kW (15 hp) it is right at the limit of the A1 driver’s license, making it the sportiest option out there for A1 riders. Thanks to the ingenious intake and exhaust system, the 33 mm throttle body and the meticulous fuel injection system, this strong stroker is ready to leave the rest of the city traffic behind at the twist of your wrist.

Cylinder head

Just like the 1290 SUPER DUKE R, the four valves in the cylinder head of the KTM 125 DUKE are actuated by two overhead camshafts and ultra-hard, carbon coated cam followers. The result is an ultra-reliable, long-lasting engine that produces next-level power.

Injection

The intricate engine design, state-of-the-art injection electronics and close-ratio, 6-speed transmission not only help the KTM 125 DUKE to achieve white-knuckle performance, but also extremely low fuel consumption. At the same time, thanks to the regulated catalytic converter, it produces minimal emissions, even when riding at full throttle.  

A1 license

The KTM 125 DUKE matches all the A1 driver´s license requirements and thanks to its high power-to-weight ratio, it’s one of the most dynamic options out there for new riders.

Exhaust

The KTM 125 DUKE’s lightweight and precision-crafted exhaust system comprises of a side exhaust, link pipe and silencer. The three-chamber silencer has been positioned close to the bike’s overall center of gravity, improving balance and handling, whilst also delivering smooth, instant and beast-like power. Oh, and it looks angry as hell too.

Design

At first you notice that LED headlight. That aggressive front. That predatory stance. When you come closer, you feel its steel fuel tank and multiple high-quality cast parts. In the end you realize that the design and production standards of this bike were set sky-high. Just like its big brother, the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R, the KTM 125 DUKE looks like a naked, angry, untamed little beast.

TFT display

As an absolute first in its class, the KTM 125 DUKE boasts an innovative multicolor TFT display, presenting all the data you need to go faster in a clear-cut, uncluttered way. As you rev the engine, the display bars change color, either spurring you on or telling you to back off when the engine’s still cold. The display also automatically adapts its color to best suit the light conditions around you. Innovation at its best!!!

LED headlight

The aggressively styled LED headlight on the KTM 125 DUKE is a big highlight in this bike’s design and a clear referral to its big brother, the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R. Practical as well as looking ultra-mean, it produces outstanding visibility for riding in low light or dark conditions. The parking light, which consists of 20 LEDs, ensures that the bike is highly visible to other road users, keeping you safe while you dominate the streets.   

Menu switch

Different modes for the various built-in assistance systems can be selected using an illuminated menu switch on the left side of the handlebar. It's very simple and intuitive: flick "up" and "down" through the menu, select the desired setting with the right button or go a step back with the left. Job done. Race on.
