The KTM125 Duke launches

KTM has finally released details of its 125cc bike.  After teaser videos and concept art for the last few months official pictures and specs are now out.

While some of the concept art’s better details, such as the cool half and half coloured wheels are gone (shame),the bike still has plenty of style. It should make a decent mark on the entry level bike market and hopefully inspire kids to make the jump to two wheels.
