India Bound 2011 KTM Duke 125 Makes Debut At Cologne - Mr.Bhat - 10-06-2010

Austrian bike maker KTM has officially debuted its 125cc Street Motorcycle Duke at the Cologne bike show in Germany.

The 125cc bike which was developed in partnership with Bajaj Auto was showcased as a concept at various auto show around Europe last year. The motorcycle unveiled at Cologne will be hitting European roads by spring 2011 and will also be coming to India.

The KTM Duke 125 features a 125cc four stroke liquid cooled DOHC (dual overhead camshaft) fuel injected (BOSCH) engine which develops a healthy 15 ps @ 10,500 rpm and 8.9 lb-ft of maximum torque @ 8000 rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox for ideal spread of power. The components on the bike have been developed for unlimited durability and easy servicing to gurantee a carefree ownership experience.

The bike features a light trellis frame welded from thin steel tubes for maximum strength while the rugged suspension comes from suspension specialists WP-Suspension. The bike also comes with 280 mm front disc brake and 230 mm rear disc developed in co-operation with Brembo, light weight alloy wheels and multi-functional instrument console.

It is still unclear how much the bike will be toned down for the Indian market but we expect the bike to be launched here with minimal changes.
