KTM RC 125 is a true sportbike

From summer 2014 the KTM experience is no longer limited to the successful 125 Duke for owners of an A1 driving licence. With the RC 125, genuine KTM road racing technology now becomes available even to 16-year-olds.

Easily the best chassis in the segment, the foundation of limitless cornering fun on back roads and race tracks comes in the shape of a featherweight trellis frame, top quality WP Suspension components and an ABS braking system developed in co-operation with Bosch.

The economic engine of the 125 Duke with its DOHC fourvalve cylinder head and liquid cooling is not only distinguished by a strong and well-balanced power delivery but also by the highest refinement thanks to its balancer shaft. Cutting-edge injection electronics and a 3-way catalytic converter ensure clean emissions.

The RC 125 is a genuine sport bike, not only looking at its engine and equipment, but also in terms of its dimensions and design. After all, a race replica not just needs to be fast – it also needs to look cool. The RC 125 is the long-anticipated alternative to tricked-out mopeds, boring commuters and soft scooters.
