But KTM does not wish to remain about it there, and noted that certain users finally turn to a scooter 125 quite simply because it has a braking ABS.
Also, KTM chose to equip braking Brembo with its small 125 utility Cm3 and fun of anti-locking. This last always active rest, contrary to certain large cubes from KTM or not, on which it is possible to disconnect it. It weighs only 2 kilos approximately.
