2024 KTM DUKE 125 biggest change to the sub-500 cc capacity DUKE model range since the KTM 125 DUKE in 2011. The result is a complete redesign, with new engines, an all-new chassis concept, and new styling which amplifies the typically aggressive KTM DUKE design language you’ve come to expect.

2024 KTM DUKE 125 gets all-new steel trellis main frame with a pressure die-cast aluminum subframe – enhances dynamics by augmenting torsional rigidity. This also adds improved agility and enhanced feedback from the chassis, with new triple clamps and a revised offset, improving handling characteristics and giving riders greater control and stability.

The frame is now also mated to an all-new curved lightweight swingarm, which contours around a relocated rear shock absorber. This is mounted off-center to allow for a larger airbox design while reducing overall seat height. Speaking of which, the reduced seat height was purposefully engineered into the new DUKE design to allow for greater accessibility, without compromising on stability or handling.

Compact single-cylinder engines, dubbed the LC4c, the engine range is made up of a smaller 125 cc and a 250 cc (for selected markets) engine and a larger 399 cc engine, as found in the KTM 390 DUKE. Building from the experience gained with the previous generation, 125cc powerplant is completely redesigned, with newly optimized cylinder heads, and gearboxes, as well as meeting EURO 5.2 compatibility standards. The KTM Duke 125 loses out on .5 Nm of torque and retains same power figures. 2024 KTM DUKE 125 also gets SOHC instead of DOHC while retaining every other high spec engine technology!

The 2024 KTM DUKE 125 also get the latest version of selectable Supermoto ABS, 5” dashboards, and smartphone connectivity as standard – with the ability to fit an optional Quickshifter+.

The 2024 KTM 125 DUKE sets itself apart from the rest of the small DUKE range, with all-new Electronic Orange and Atlantic Blue color options, painted headlight surround housing an ultra-bright LED headlight, and compact tank spoilers.

The 2024 KTM 125 DUKE also features a 43 mm WP APEX Open Cartridge non-adjustable front fork with 150 mm travel and a WP APEX Separate piston shock absorber with tool-adjustable preload.
