Drag Race Video: KTM 125 Duke vs Suzuki Gixxer SF

KTM 125 Duke vs Suzuki Gixxer SF (Drag Race): KTM 125 Duke can be seen sprinting with Suzuki Gixxer SF in this video by Rough Rider Azam. The initial acceleration by Gixxer SF was really impressive as the motorcycle gained a lead over the 125cc Duke in a matter of few seconds. The things changed once the Duke started gaining some speed, clearly overtaking the Gixxer SF in triple-digit range and winning with a decent margin. However, the speedometer error on the Gixxer SF showed that it is faster than the Duke 125, even when it was struggling to keep up with the premium streetfighter.

The error became visible once both the riders passed the 120 kph mark. KTM 125 Duke is priced much higher in comparison to the Gixxer SF but power output is better on the affordable version. The fully-faired motorcycle is not just cost-effective but also features impressive shades that look awesome on the faired body while changes on the Duke are limited to the fuel tank only. Here is a complete comparison for both the bikes in this drag race.
