Can a KTM Duke 125 BEAT the Royal Enfield Classic 350 in a drag race? [Video]

We have seen number of videos in the past where motorcyclists do drag race to find which one of their ride is more powerful. We have even featured races between cars and bikes where the results have surprised us. Today we have another one such video where a Royal Enfield Classic 350 and KTM Duke 125 engage in a top-end race to find out which one is more powerful. Royal Enfield Classic 350 is a cruiser motorcycle whereas the Duke 125 is a naked street motorcycle. Both of them belong to different categories, and to find out who wins the race, let’s take a look at the video first.

The video has been uploaded by KSC Vlogs on his yourube channel. The video starts by showing both the motorcycles and explaining the category to which these motorcycles belong. Both KTM Duke and Royal Enfield Classic are popular in their own segments and have huge fan following. The drag race is conducted in two rounds and in first round, the vlogger is riding the Royal Enfield Classic. As soon as the race starts, the rider of KTM takes the lead and the vlogger was struggling to find a sweet spot to shift gears. Once he had figured that thing out, Royal Enfield starts gaining and overtakes KTM in no time.

Royal Enfield maintains the lead for rest of the race and the KTM is left behind. After the second round, riders switch the bikes and this time around, vlogger was on the KTM. The race starts and Royal Enfield takes the lead but, surprisingly, KTM Duke starts closing in and the vlogger was right behind the Enfield when the race was finished. Even though Royal Enfield won both rounds, KTM Duke 125 did a great job in the second round.

The main reason why the gap was more in first round in comparison to the second could be because of the rider weight. The KTM Duke 125 is less powerful than RE Classic. It generates 14.3 Bhp in comparison to the 19.1 Bhp that RE Classic 350 produces. Even though Duke is a lighter motorcycle, the rider weight and the lack of power held it back. In second round, the vlogger was less heavier than his fellow rider and that is one of the reason why KTM was right next to Royal Enfield in second round.
