A Lightweight and affordable Adventure tourer from KTM based on entry-level Duke 125 is not a bad idea after all
Here is a fine example of how to transform a standard KTM Duke 125 into an affordable and lightweight adventure tourer. For those of you who are wondering KTM already has a pretty good adventure tourer lineup, including the 1290 Adventure, the recently introduced 790 Adventure and the upcoming 390 Adventure that we all are eagerly waiting for.
Here in this video, you can watch the same artist uses his imagination to transform a stock KTM Duke 125 which is already available for sale in India into an adventure tourer model. To begin with, the rendering artist has used a semi-fairing towards the front profile. The semi fairing is a common thing which you will find in almost all the adventure tourers available for sale.
The attention to detail is also quite impressive because he even added an air vent to the semi fairing which will help keep the engine cool. Another important must-have accessory for any adventure tourer is a windshield. The digitally rendered KTM 125 Adventure tourer also gets a huge windshield just above the headlamps.
The other new additions made to the motorcycle include a new offroad mudguard which fits perfectly with the rest of the motorcycle and does not look odd. The artist has also replaced the stock tyres with offroad tyres. The motorcycle even gets a double disc brake towards its front which cannot be installed in real life but the idea definitely looks good on this digitally rendered Duke 125.
Lastly, the artist also added some attractive looking graphics to complete the overall look of this KTM Duke 125 Adventure model. For those of you who are still not aware of the fact, the KTM Duke 125 is the most affordable and smallest motorcycle from the KTM lineup launched in November 2018.
The naked streetfighter is powered by a 124.7 cc single-cylinder motor which makes 14.3 bhp at 9,250 rpm and peak torque of 12 Nm at 8,000 rpm. The engine is paired to a 6-speed gearbox. A single channel ABS comes as standard with the motorcycle.
