As ABS gets mandatory in Europe, KTM has given the Duke 125 and Duke 200 ABS for 2013. KTM is focusing on the mobilization of young riders. The KTM 125 Duke is the segment first 125 cc motorbike in the world offering ABS and it makes motorized mobility safer than ever. The dynamic abilities can now be enjoyed in a relaxed manner. The KTM Duke 125 comes with a refined four-stroke single cylinder engine with fuel injection mated to a six-speed transmission that provides decent ride ability with low fuel consumption.

The KTM 200 Duke is 125 Duke’s elder sibling; they say that it provides maximum riding fun, powerful propulsion and optimum user value thanks to KTM’s thoroughbred motorcycle technology. It features a lightweight chassis with high-quality components and efficient brakes. KTM guarantees dynamic cornering fun with the KTM 200 Duke boasting of a four-stroke single-cylinder engine with fuel injection and low fuel consumption.
In November 2007, Indian two-wheeler manufacturer Bajaj Auto acquired 14.5% stake in KTM Power Sports AG (parent company of KTM Sportmotorcycles AG). In December 2007, Bajaj increased their stake to more than 20%. As of March 2012 Bajaj Auto holds a 47% stake. We expect Bajaj Auto to offer ABS on the Indian Duke 200 next year, offering it as an option. Other than the ABS written on the Duke siblings, there is absolutely no visual difference between the non-ABS and ABS equipped models.
