In recent years, the KTM Duke series has established itself as a benchmark in the world of single-cylinder naked bikes. With the introduction of the KTM 125 DUKE in 2024, KTM aims to set new standards for entry-level models.

Design and bodywork

The 2024 KTM 125 DUKE stays true to the aggressive yet refined look that is so characteristic of the DUKE range. High-quality finishes and a new metal tank give the bike a premium feel. Big sister, the KTM 390 DUKE, stands out with longer tank spoilers and unique “Electronic Orange Metallic” accents, while the 250 DUKE retains its own identity.

 

Chassis and suspension

As with the KTM 390 DUKE and 250 DUKE, the main chassis of the 125 DUKE is a steel trellis frame. The die-cast aluminum rear frame and WP APEX suspension forks are a testament to the quality KTM offers in all of its models. The suspension, while not as adjustable as the 390 DUKE, offers a balance between comfort and handling.

 

Technological highlights

One of the most noticeable features of the new 125 DUKE is the 5-inch TFT display with connected glass surface, which is also found on the 390 DUKE. The display offers a lap timer function and a speed limiter, which can be especially useful in areas with a lot of speed controls.

 

Connectivity

In addition to the KTM 390 DUKE, the KTM 125 DUKE will also be equipped with connectivity features. Riders can listen to music and answer incoming calls via the KTMconnect app. These features are missing from the 250 DUKE, making the 125 DUKE unique in the entry-level category.

 

Safety and riding modes

As with the larger models, there are selectable riding modes on the 125 DUKE. The default mode is STREET, while RAIN mode provides less aggressive throttle response and more sensitive traction control in inclement weather. While the 390 DUKE comes with supermoto ABS and cornering traction control, the 125 DUKE remains a bit more reserved in this area, but that’s understandable given its entry-level status.

 

KTM PowerParts and PowerWear

For those looking to further customize their KTM 125 DUKE, KTM offers a comprehensive range of PowerParts. And for riders, there’s the URBAN RACER collection, designed specifically for DUKE riders.

 

Conclusion

The 2024 KTM 125 DUKE aims to set new standards for entry-level naked bikes. With a host of features more expected in higher-end segments, the 125 DUKE offers an impressive blend of design, performance and technology. While it doesn’t inherit all the high-end features of its larger siblings, the 390 DUKE and 250 DUKE, it remains an impressive entry-level model ready to introduce new riders to the world of motorcycling.
