New Honda CB125R vs KTM Duke 125 (Quick Comparison)

Honda CB125R vs KTM Duke 125: The launch of KTM Duke 125 along with the Honda CB300R has an indirect connection for the Indian street bike fans. The former is the most affordable premium motorcycle of its genre while the latter is based on the same Neo-Sports Cafe concept as CB125R.

This means that the chances of Honda considering CB125R for the Indian market are all-time high next year. The 125cc engine, an under-belly exhaust system, and the sharp tank panels are the only three differences between the CB300R and the CB125R.

KTM Duke 125 comes with USD forks, wide tyres, and an all-digital console. All three features are also true for the Honda CB125R. The CB125R can help Honda eliminate the need for any other premium motorcycle in the 150cc segment as changing times are pushing more buyers towards the environment-friendly 125cc premium bikes. Here is a quick comparison between the new Honda CB125R and the KTM Duke 125.
