The 125 DUKE is not a toy. It’s a genuine motorcycle, up there with the best in its class and better equipped than some of the big bikes. Back in 2013 it was the first 125 to receive ABS as standard, now it’s at that forefront again with an LED headlight, a TFT display and optional integrated connectivity. On top of that, the refined 4-stroke single cylinder with fuel injection system and 6-speed transmission combines class-leading performance with limited thirst – except for adventures. There’s no better place to start.
