Lots of motorcycle manufacturers are now able to transfer styling features from their superbike categories to low-displacement bikes. KTM is no different, with their 125 and 390 Duke being one of the most popular examples. From now on, these two variants will be fully Euro 5 compliant.
For refresher’s sake, many motorcycle riders in Europe start riding when they are between 17 and 19 years old. These riders can only apply for an A1 motorcycle license, enabling them to ride a bike with a maximum displacement of 125cc.
For this category, the 125 Duke is probably the most aggressive bike, with its engine producing 15 horsepower and various quality-of-life features such as: ByBre front and rear disc brakes, WP suspension, and inverted USD front fork.
On the other hand, if you are stuck at the A2 license (bike is at least 395cc and produces 35 kW), the 390 Duke is for riders looking for one of the ultimate mid-displacement bikes in Europe. It produces triple the horsepower (44 horsepower) than its 125 brethren, and it features ABS to keep its power in check. Other than that, some notable features are: WP front fork, adjustable rear suspension, and slipper clutch.
As these two will now be fully Euro 5 compliant, KTM has prepared some new color schemes, including grey and white. So, if you are only limited to A2 or A1 licenses, these two bikes from KTM are optimal when it comes to aggressive looks and an uncompromised feature package.
