KTM 125 Duke For 2012 MotoGP Technology

Like no other brand, KTM represents a highly enjoyable riding experience, generated by concepts that always have put a strong focus on the dynamism of each model. The first 125cc KTM for the road for young people from the age of 16 and the young at heart alike. The 125 Duke offers maximum riding fun, thanks to thoroughbred motorcycle technology. The featherweight chassis with high-quality components and first-class brakes guarantees dynamic cornering fun. The refined four-stroke single cylinder with fuel injection and six-gear transmission provides adequate propulsion. And the low fuel consumption ensures a reasonable level of cost-effectiveness.

The state-of-the-art, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder four-stroke engine with twin overhead camshafts, four valves and electronic fuel injection has been developed specifically for the KTM 125 Duke. Effortlessly, it achieves peak power of 11 kW (15 hp) and thanks to the balancer shaft, delivers the highest levels of smoothness. Just like the RC8 R, two overhead camshafts in the 125 Duke's cylinder head actuate four valves by means of cam levers. This design is not only extremely reliable, but the cam levers are coated with ultra-hard carbon which minimises friction - releasing even more power.

The KTM 125 Duke is compact, three-chamber silencer is positioned close to the machine's overall centre of gravity. This aids centralisation of masses and improves the playful handling of the 125 Duke. Not only noise, but emission levels are also exemplary thanks to the regulated catalytic converter.  The 125 Duke has everything that distinguishes a genuine KTM - from the high-quality chassis components to the multi-function cockpit, which even keeps you up to date with fuel consumption and remaining range. The extensive KTM PowerParts range gives you the option of adding your own individual style.

11 kW (15 hp) of power plus an unladen weight of 124 kg (273 lb.) guarantee plenty of riding fun with the 125 Duke. The first-class chassis, with lightweight tubular space frame in the proven KTM design, turns it into a real surfer through the curves. Weight grouped close to the centre of gravity maximise manoeuvrability and precision. The 125 Duke's high-quality upside-down fork from WP Suspension has the same 43 mm (1.69 in) outer tube diameter as the RC8 R in other words, real racing equipment that guarantees highest levels of stability and precision.

The KTM 125 Duke's lightweight, high-quality, pin-jointed swingarm is designed and produced according to the same principle as the 690 Duke. The light alloy swingarm with directly linked WP shock absorber excels with extreme torsional stiffness and outstanding tracking stability. Equally lightweight and delicate as they are stable, the 17 in cast light alloy wheels developed by KTM specifically for the 125 Duke give a 110 mm (4.33 in)-wide tyre at the front and an impressive 150 mm (5.91 in) at the rear. The tyres impress with tremendous grip in both wet and dry conditions, as well as providing supreme durability.

KTM 125 Duke With the powerful, outstandingly controllable brake system developed by KTM in collaboration with Brembo® and the perfect grip of the wide tyres, the rider always has the lightweight motorcycle under control. At the front, a radial four-piston brake caliper bites onto a 280 mm (11.02 in) brake disc.
