Available in Malaysia, you can now fit this standard parts for India’s KTM Duke radiator guard. The material is made from plastic but by the way it looks, it is thick enough and can withstand the weather elements. The price is also affordable at less than RM80.

KTM has updated the Duke 125 and Duke 200 in EICMA with ABS. This braking assist system will prevent the tyre from locking up in hard braking condition especially in snowy road.

‘Malaysia you can do it! Were words of Rok Bagoros, KTM stunt rider, when he completed his last performance at 2012 bike expo motorcycle show in Kuala Lumpur.
Indeed, enthusiastic fans did a fantastic job and pulled out last bit of strength from young stuntmen. ‘My hands were hurting like hell and body was beaten, but I’ just couldn’t stop. When I thought: man that’s enough I can’t do it anymore, people just continued to cheer and with so many people wanting more, you really can’t say no! Si I didn’t and all I can say now is that this was my best show ever and for sure I can’t wait to do it again. Kuala Lumpur is fantastic city, with great people, food, relax atmosphere. The only thing I couldn’t cope with was the damn heat and humidity. It was quite a big change coming from Central Europe, where spring is slowly arriving to full summer temperatures of Kuala Lumpur. It also felt fantastic to jump on my KTM Duke 125 and burned some Sava rubbers after short winter break’, Rok completed his impressions of his first show in 2012.
Welcome to the ‘ghost town’, the place of burning metal and sounds of hammer slamming. In to this industrial and mysterious place, with thousands of hidden secret playgrounds something wild disturbed the calm. Roar of the KTM Duke 125 single cylinder engine. It’s time to rock again and burn some rubber!
Rok is presenting his newest video project called “ when the time stops” that is filmed only with the GoPro cameras. The young Slovenian KTM factory stunt riders wants to show the inside, more detaled view in his tricks on the 15HP KTM motorcycle.

Back then they had fests where they were dancing and singing on the yard outside or inside the castle. Centuries later a different kind of dance showed up. Dancing with a motorcycle. Rok Bagoros known as stunt rider with a smooth and agressive riding style shows some of his elegant moves on his bike as they did in the past with their dancing.
Everyone is waiting for the Duke 200 here in Malaysia. The representative there tells me that we just might get the KTM Duke 125 first in two more month before the arrival of the KTM Duke 200. The price of the Duke 125 are said to be only slightly less than the Duke 200. Anyway, Duke 200 might be available in Malaysia in much later date in 2012. Hope the statement are true. What we can do is just wait, which everyone hates. Continue reading “Gallery: KTM Duke 125 and Husaberg TE 125 at Sepang MotoGP”
