KTM 125 Duke, the ideal bike to get started with stunt riding...

KTM want to build on their already strong presence in the European market – the Austrian company also wants a slice of lucrative emerging markets in Asia. Indian motorcycle company, Bajaj Auto now owns a 38% stake in KTM and the two companies have co-developed the new 125 Duke, which is likely to be launched in some Asian markets in the near future. KTM are also said to be developing 250-300cc Duke variants for various markets, including India.

The KTM 125 Duke is fitted with a fuel-injected liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine that produces 15 horsepower. And while that bhp number may not sound terribly exciting, the bike is also fitted with high-quality suspension components and a light, stiff chassis, which means the bike handles very well indeed. With its fat, sticky tyres, big brakes, firm suspension and funky styling, the baby Duke certainly looks like it can hold its own in the 125cc class.

Duke 125 evangelists now include 22-year-old Slovenian stunt rider, Rok Bagoroš, who has appeared in various stunt riding shows in France, Germany, Italy, Macedonia, Kosovo, Hungary and, of course, Slovenia. Rok, whose idol is stunt riding champ Chris Pfeiffer, thinks the KTM 125 Duke is pretty cool and the ideal bike for those who’re just starting off with motorcycle stunt riding. 'I love my new bike. Finally, I can develope my new style, which is agressive, fast and smooth all mixed together. Stop. Must jump on the Duke again. Now!' says Bagoroš.
