On the rear there is a 10 step adjustable mono-shock suspension. In the front the bike gets 300 mm front disc brake and on the rear 230 mm rear disc brake.
The front brake is fitted with Single Channel ABS of Bosch brand which is good for safety standard and also will increase the braking efficiency of the motorcycle. It also has 150 section rear tyre and under belly exhaust. Unlike the international version the Indian version has halogen headlight instead of LED headlight.
The bike has a dry weight of 148 kg and will have a 10 litre fuel tank. KTM Duke 125 has a ground clearance of 175 mm . The bike will feature a fully digital speedometer. Price wise it is still a bit high as with the same price bracket you can get 150 cc naked sports motorcycles but I think for the people who love KTM Duke brand they will try to have a bite on this machine.
