After almost, 10,000′s of teasers, videos and contest, KTM has finally decided to give it a break and has officially unveiled the production version of its highly anticipated roadster, the KTM 125 Duke at the 2010 Intermot Show in Cologne, where it stood in public for the first time.
Powered by a fuel- injected four stroke single cylinder engine, the KTM 125 Duke is the company’s first street legal bike, aimed at young and entry level riders. KTM has claimed a power output of 15.2hp at 10500 rpm and 12Nm of max torque at 8000rpm. Top speed is electronically limited to 80 km/h.
The suspension is supplied by 43mm upside down fork and rear monoshock from WP, both offering 6.3 inches of travel. Brakes are single disc units developed in conjunction with Brembo. With the fuel tank capacity of 11 litters, the wet weight claimed by the 125 Duke, stands at 112 kegs.
