If you say KTM, I instantly think: small displacement, huge fun factor. And that’s just what KTM is all about. So I can’t help it to have a little crush on customized KTM’s. It’s a pity that KTM still is a relatively small brand for road bikes and that KTM doesn’t have the legacy of brands like Honda or BMW. This results in the fact that if you’re about to customize a KTM, you’ll need to pick a young or even a completely new bike as a base for your project. Another fact is that most builders like to work on larger displacement bikes and that a 125cc is considered to be a moped. But if you’ve ever ridden a KTM Duke 125, you’ll know that this little fellow will make you smile from ear to ear.
Luckily there are builders out there who like a challenge, like Art on Wheels Cafe Racer from Portugal who built this awesome looking KTM Duke 125 Tracker.
