New 125 Duke Leaked: To Get Major Design Upgrade; Launch SOON

2021 125 Duke spy pic has emerged suggesting big styling update to the model. It will get the new design from the elder siblings…

Earlier this year, KTM updated its 200 Duke with the new design theme of the elder siblings – 250 Duke and 390 Duke. That leaves the 125 Duke as the only naked model which runs on the older styling.

In a latest update, a leaked image of the 2021 125 Duke has leaked. And the surprise is the new styling that the model is about to get. It carries the same parts as other Duke siblings, with the exception of the different color shade. The model in the picture is seen with a white fuel tank with orange colored tank extensions and other parts.

The new Duke is likely to get the same chassis from the 200 Duke with a bolt-on sub-frame. The basic hardware like the USD forks, wheels and other parts are likely to be carried over. The updated 125cc, single cylinder, 15 hp, 12 Nm, liquid cooled engine may continue unchanged.

This also means that the 125 Duke may get an increase in fuel tank capacity from the current 11 liters, along with a hike in weight.
