Even though the bike gets a complete new cosmetic upgrades but the engine is still the same fuel injected 125 cc engines. The engine produces 14.8 BHP & 11.8 NM of Torque. The engine has 4 valves, double overhead cams working with fuel injection & it is water cooling.
The engine is now Euro IV standard which means it will be now more refine & fuel efficient than the previous KTM Duke 125. The power & torque is delivered to the rear wheel by a 6 speed gearbox.
The dry weight of the bike is 137 kg. The bike can carry around 14 litres of fuel in its tank. Looking at the bike it looks great with the front LED headlight & the compact design. Seat height of the bike is also too high.
