KTM 125 Duke
Engine: 4-stroke, water-cooled
In Europe there something called a graduated license, meaning you can't legally ride larger engine bikes until you master the lower cc. Enter the Duke. The KTM has the lowest displacement on the list, but still offers a sharp, stylish look of the more powerful sport bikes. The 125 is an attractive, extremely fun beginner with stock Brembo brakes for those initial close calls.
