“When what you are deeply passionate about, what you can be best in the world at and what drives your economic engine come together, not only does your work move toward greatness, but so does your life. For, in the end, it is impossible to have a great life unless it is a meaningful life. And it is very difficult to have a meaningful life without meaningful work. Perhaps, then, you might gain that rare tranquility that comes from knowing that you’ve had a hand in creating something of intrinsic excellence that makes a contribution. Indeed, you might even gain that deepest of all satisfactions: knowing that your short time here on this earth has been well spent, and that it mattered.”

KTM Duke 125 first impressions

Well, the KTM Duke 125 was always built with a mission. Mission to be a class leader, mission to make the world realize that products coming from the east side of the planet, can in-fact match up with the quality and performance of products from the wild wild west.

The KTM Duke 125, a product that has been manufactured fully at Bajaj's production line is literally leaving admirers gasping for breath. Be it, it's looks, fit and finish quality or performance. The KTM Duke 125 is a world class product in every sense. MCN lays it's hands on this beauty and is absolutely fore played in the process.

From nose to tail, the KTM Duke 125 oozes oomph, which is unparalleled by any other in it's category, the naked 125cc category so to speak. The 43mm USD forks and adjustable suspension by WP, and radial four piston front brake by Bybre, make the baby Duke as close it's bigger sibling as possible.

Not only this, the digital dash has been inspired from the mighty RC8-R, which not only gives the little Duke a technical edge, but also gives it a sense of being exotic, while the rider is riding and flashes through the speedo.

So, here's what MCN's first impression about the bike is -

So, why I'm so excited about the impressions about the KTM Duke 125 from the West?? Well, since the KTM Duke 125 is being manufactured in India, India should be getting it's share of the motorcycle too, and what's best about is that, India would get a sumptuous chunk of 200cc of the KTM Duke. Yes, India would be getting the KTM Duke 200 in all it's quality and performance and is expected to be priced quite aggressively.

The Indian performance motorcycling is definitely looking orange in the near future.
