2019 KTM 125 DUKE ABS FIRST RIDE REVIEW

The KTM 125 Duke is finally on sale in India! Finally? The 125 Duke has been in production at Bajaj's Chakan plant from the very beginning. But KTM India considered the bike too expensive for India. But now that the prices of the KTM 200 Duke have risen to Rs 1.5 lakh ex-showroom, there is a chance for the kids to convince their parents for a properly fast, sport 125cc motorcycle. So the styling package is the old one but with new stickers, you get the same excellent chassis as the old series Dukes did and that's a superb package for a new rider to hone their skills on. It is expensive at Rs 1.18 lakh ex-Delhi, but KTM has added a single-channel ABS system that works on the front wheel. The 14.5PS engine does mean that the KTM 125 Duke is far calmer than the frenetic 200 and the completely bonkers 390 but the responsive chassis and a calm engine should mean that new riders can get on the bike and truly go. It's a package that did power KTM to the top slot in Europe not so many years ago!
