The KTM 125 DUKE’s state-of-the-art chassis, with its characteristic, lightweight steel trellis frame, turns this bike into a real surfer through the bends. Masses grouped close to the center of gravity maximize maneuverability and precision – and prepare the 125 DUKE to win the rush hour slalom day in, day out.


The 125 DUKE's meticulously manufactured, die-cast swingarm is designed and produced according to the same standards and principles as the one on the 690 DUKE R. This light alloy beauty with directly linked WP shock absorber excels in extreme torsional stiffness and outstanding tracking stability.


Thanks to its progressive spring, you get maximum feedback wherever you take this jack-of-all-trades. The preload is adjustable, so you can count on well-balanced suspension whether you’re riding solo or two-up, with or without luggage.


Equally lightweight and delicate as they are stable, the 17 inch cast light alloy wheels are fitted with tires from the world’s best suppliers. They are 110 mm wide at the front and an impressive 150 mm at the rear. The tires are selected on the basis of their high grip levels in both wet and dry conditions, as well as their ability to provide supreme durability.


A state-of-the-art 2-channel Bosch ABS helps you get the most out of the impressive DUKE dynamics and adds the finishing touch to its peerless chassis qualities. The ABS on the KTM 125 DUKE monitors the effect of the potent brake system with radially-bolted, 4-piston caliper and 300 mm disc diameter - fun with no regrets. And for the stunt riders among us: The ABS is disengageable.


The KTM 125 DUKE's high-quality upside-down fork from WP Suspension uses the latest open-cartridge technology, which offers impressive advantages because of its easy maintenance, simplicity and small amount of components. Therefore, it’s lightweight, rugged and has a broad spectrum of use for all demands, from relaxed cruising to hammering around on closed circuits.

It is just a duke meant for beginners and being at 100000 on road with a 125 cc engine wouldn't appeal to much people 

Rajiv Bajaj himself said and I quote, "Bring me one customer who'll buy the D125 and I'll launch it in India right away!"
Because of its look, mileage, speed  the prime subjects for not launching Duke 125 bike in India. Indian people. want Indian looks of their bike, cars, house, and everything as per their look of attraction too. secondly, the bike mileage, quality and its speed is also not as per advanced bike. Ordinarily bike in India has top speed at about 110-130, while, this bike top speed is also in such range. It is costly also.  Bajaj Pulsar bike has still been at high level in  the market for the last about 15 years. 

Indian market for foreign bikes or cars are nice but it the mileage, speed or its look are not attractive or as per economically, it will not be dear to Indian people.

Why would KTM manufacture 125 CC Duke?

European markets have age based motorcycle license standards. If you are 15–16 years you could either get an AM or A1 License (only if you are 16). A1 license is restricted to 125 CC and 11 KW, which is around 14 HP. This is the reason KTM Duke and RC 125 launched and only targeted for European markets. In the similar way KTM also launched Duke and RC versions with 250 CC ignoring 200 CC, targeting some Asian markets like Thailand, which has different license standards like Europeans.
