KTM Duke 125: When is it Coming to Nepal?

A few days ago, KTM freshly launched the all-new 125cc segment motorbike in its category. KTM Duke 125 is a small segment version of the new KTM 200 Duke ABS with a 125cc engine. The bike gives us a fresh, aggressive design based on the same lines as Duke 200. For Nepal, things have changed a bit as KTM packs Duke 125 in the body of 200cc Duke to save some amount on the ex-showroom price tag. The present generation Duke 125 is manufactured in India.

Expected Price between Rs. 3 Lakhs to Rs.5 Lakhs Launch – End of Jan 2019

The fuel tank and the high quality cast along with other aesthetic features give you a feel of a very impressive naked street bike. This one too does not disappoint, with a 124.7 cc engine giving out a power of 14.5 ps @ 9250 rpm and a torque of 12 Nm @ 8000 rpm.

It comes with a single cylinder four stroke engine which is liquid cooled. The bike comes with 6-speed manual transmission. Given such power-packed performance in the 125 cc segment, the KTM Duke 125 has a mileage of around 35-40 kmpl. It uses fine technology to ensure a good user experience and enables control. It comes with an electric start, attractive split seat, pass light and pillion footrest.

The KTM Duke 125 comes packed with high-quality upside-down WP suspension. The shock absorber has a progressive spring, where preload is adjustable providing a well-balanced suspension. It has some serious style quotient, with the tank design being a show stealer. As a fan of KTM, this looks like a fair deal in the 125 cc segment and also carries the royalty coming with the brand name. It lies in the same class as Honda CBR125R and Yamaha MT-125 as competition.
