KTM recently took the internet by storm by globally unveiling the 2024 editions of its Duke offerings. In the initial phase, the Austrian brand has rolled out three updated models, including the 2024 version of the 125 Duke. Just like before, the baby Duke boasts updates that are closely similar to its bigger siblings. Let’s take a look at these changes along with the bike's stunning pictures.
The new design of the 125 Duke is almost identical to the new 2024 version of the 390 Duke such as its alien-like, eye-catching bodywork. It also looks bigger, sharper and more muscular than before.
The rear section of the bike is equally intriguing as it is deprived of any body panels and the revised sub-frame is fully exposed to make up for the tail section.
Although it’s the most affordable offering, KTM hasn’t skimped on bestowing it with top-class features like a colour TFT screen with smartphone connectivity.
The ergonomics of the bike have also been revised with repositioned footpegs and redesigned seat for a more comfortable yet engaging riding experience.
Suspension duties continue to be handled by WP Apex suspension setup while anchors are dropped by Bybre callipers along with dual-channel ABS.
The steel trellis frame, sub-frame, and swingarm have also been changed to provide the bike with better handling dynamics and stability.
Powering the bike is the same 124.9cc, liquid-cooled engine that produces 14.7bhp and 11Nm and comes mated to a six-speed gearbox.
The 2024 KTM 125 Duke is expected to arrive at the Indian shores towards the end of this year or early 2024 with a considerable price increment over the existing model that costs Rs 1.79 lakh (ex-showroom).
