2021 KTM 125 Duke launched

KTM has launched the updated 125 Duke at an introductory price of Rs 1.5 lakh. 

After launching the BS6 390 Duke and the 250 Duke, and giving substantial updates to the 200 Duke earlier in the year, KTM has now brought in the 2021 125 Duke. Priced at Rs 1.50 lakh, the 125 Duke is now almost Rs 8,000 dearer than before. KTM introduced the BS6 compliant 125 Duke in January this year at Rs 1.38 lakh, and subsequently in May revised the prices across its model range with the entry-level Duke priced at Rs 1.42 lakh.

The 125 Duke continues to produce the same numbers even after the switch from BS4 to BS6. It is powered by a 124cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine that makes 14.5hp and 12Nm and is mated to a six-speed transmission.

The wheels, brakes, USD front fork and mono shock are the same as before. It also appears to be equipped with the same MRF tyres. However, 125 Duke’s fuel tank capacity has increased to 13.5 litres. These changes have also resulted in a weight increase and the bike now weighs 7kg more at 159kg. The seat height, meanwhile, has gone up from 818mm to 822mm.

Also KTM and Husqvarna have increased prices of its range as of December 4. This includes the likes of the 250 Duke, RC 390 and the 390 Adventure.
