KTM 125 Duke Design And Style

KTM 125 Duke Design And Style

The KTM Duke 125 has been available in the international market for a while now. However, the international-spec Duke 125 comes with a design similar to the Duke 390 model. The Indian-spec Duke 125 though borrows its design cues from the Duke 200 model, currently on sale.

The Duke 125 carries forward almost the same design as seen on its larger sibling. However, minor differences between the two include the addition of revised body graphics on the Duke 125. The new body livery can be noticed on the tank and the rear half of the entry-level KTM motorcycle.
