KTM India has launched its smallest offering in the Duke range. Called the 125 Duke, the motorcycle comes with a single-channel ABS as standard and commands an introductory price of Rs 1.18 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). This makes it around Rs 33,000 less expensive than the non-ABS version of the 200 Duke.

The 125 Duke’s bodywork is similar to the 200 Duke’s, but it gets new graphics. Even the underpinnings are the same - you get WP inverted front forks, WP rear monoshock, and MRF Revz tyres on both ends. Braking duties are handled by a 300mm front and a 230mm rear disc.

Its chief rivals are mostly the 160cc nakeds like the Suzuki Gixxer, Honda CB Hornet 160R range and the Bajaj Pulsar NS160. The power figures for these bikes are in the same ballpark as the 125 Duke. Here’s KTM’s official word on the launch:
