Mechanically, both motorcycles remain the same. The 125 Duke uses the 124.7 cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled motor that develops 14.7 bhp and 12 Nm of peak torque. The motor is paired with a 6-speed gearbox. The bike gets an 11-litre fuel tank while suspension duties are handled by WP-sourced USD forks up front and a monoshock at the rear. Braking performance comes from ByBre units with a 300 mm disc at the front and a 230 mm unit at the rear. The bike gets single-channel ABS as standard.
