Sumeet Narang, President (Probiking) at Bajaj Auto Ltd. said

"Spawned from the 1290 beast itself and packed full of Duke attitude, the KTM 125 DUKE exudes qualities never seen in this category before. The ultra-lightweight trellis frame and subframe provide razor-sharp control, and the new styling is an absolute head turner."

"The launch of KTM 125 DUKE in late 2018 had been a point of inflexion for KTM's stronghold amongst the young biking enthusiasts in India. Upgrading that model with this new all capable entry-level KTM is another testimony of the brand's commitment to bringing pure performance to its valued customers."
