125cc motorcycles in Nepal are regarded as boring old commuter roles but KTM and Honda both broke new ground when they launched the 125 Duke and CB125R. Honda CB 125R brand origin is Japan and KTM Duke 125 brand origin is Austria. In terms of looks, KTM looks rather cutting-edge with its sharp and shouty design, the Honda harks back to the past with a classical round headlight and a clean, uncluttered look. Both bikes feature USD forks, wide tires, and an all-digital instrument console. Here is a quick comparison between the new Honda CB125R and the KTM Duke 125.
