Similarly, the price of the KTM RC 125 goes up by ₹ 1,537 and is now priced at ₹ 1, 48,750. The 125 Duke was launched in India in November 2018 at a price of ₹ 1.18 lakh while the RC 125 was launched in June 2019 at a price of ₹ 1.47 lakh.
The KTM 125 Duke is the near perfect beginner’s bike, even though it may be considered slightly expensive
Both KTM 125 cc bikes get the same 124 cc single-cylinder engine which pumps out 14.3 bhp and 12 Nm of peak torque and is paired to a 6-speed gearbox. Braking performance comes from a 300 mm disc up at the front and a 230 mm disc at the rear. Like the KTM 125 Duke, the RC 125 too gets a Bosch single-channel ABS and rear-lift mitigation (RLM) as standard. The baby Duke models share most of their cycle parts with the bigger KTMs including the Trellis frame, LCD instrument panel, fuel tank, seat, handlebar and the works.
Both models are among the most affordable ones in KTM’s line-up and are the perfect choice for the first set of wheels for college-goers and young professionals. The 125 Duke manages to outsell most of its larger capacity siblings and has been a consistent performer for KTM ever since it was launched and the success of the KTM 125 Duke prompted the company to launch the RC 125 as well.
