KTM 125 Duke and RC 125 in India
Unfortunately, KTM has no plans to launch the Duke 125 and the RC 125 in India.
Possible reasons behind this could be:
1. Not enough customers for either motorcycle because they’ll be priced quite high compared to other 125cc motorcycles. Rajiv Bajaj has said “Bring me one customer who’ll buy the D125 and I’ll launch it in India right away!”
2. Mileage is a big concern for Indian customers. Both the 125 cc bikes by KTM have reported a mileage of just 25-27 KMPL. This is because KTM engines are tuned for performance, and neglect other factors such as fuel efficiency.
3. The 125cc offerings by KTM are available in the European market only because the learner limit is 125cc and/or 15 Hp.
