2021 KTM 125 Duke Starts Reaching Dealerships: As we reported earlier, KTM is all set to launch the next-gen model of 125 Duke in India. Ahead of the official launch, the updated version of the entry-level street bike has started reaching dealerships while the official launch is expected to take place in the coming days. Thanks to MRD Vlogs for sharing the live photos of the 2021 KTM 125 Duke with us. It will be available in 2 new colours: White with Black, and White with Orange.
The updated 2021 version of the 125cc Duke is based on the 200 Duke in terms of design and looks, and it features a sculpted fuel tank, sharp-looking fuel tank extensions, a redesigned headlight with LED DRLs, and a sporty side-slung exhaust system.
Mechanically, no changes are expected, and the 2021 model would be powered by the same 124.7cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, BS6-compliant engine, which is capable of churning out a maximum power of 14.5 HP at 9,250 rpm and an utmost torque of 12 Nm at 8,000 rpm. The engine will come mated to a 6-speed gearbox.
The suspension duties on the 2021 KTM 125 Duke will continue to be handled by WP upside-down telescopic forks at the front while the rear end is equipped with an adjustable WP monoshock. The braking duties will be handled by the same disc brakes at either end while the motorcycle will continue featuring a single-channel ABS unit as standard.
In terms of pricing, the 2021 model of 125 Duke is expected to get a price hike of around INR 5,000 to INR 7,000. For reference, the current-gen model is available in India with an ex-showroom price tag of INR 1.42 lakhs.
