KTM 125cc teaser – Click above to watch video after the jump

The poor little 125cc bikes of the universe rarely get the love of their larger-displacement siblings. Typically banished to the rider education programs of the world, the one-and-a-quarters are quickly forgotten in favor of bikes with more serious muscle. But 125's have their advantages. For one thing, they're typically a fraction of the cost of larger bikes, and since that tiny engine weighs next to nothing, they're also incredibly flingable contraptions. So when KTM showed off a pair of four-stroke 125cc concepts at last year's EICMA show in Milan, our curiosity was sufficiently piqued.

Now KTM has dropped a teaser video showing development of the production model. The Austrian manufacturer hasn't said word one about whether the bike will be available on American shores once it drops, though we've got our fingers crossed. The wrench-spinning montage of bike-building awesomeness after the jump has only made us nervously eye our checking account in anticipation. We could think of plenty worse ways to get to and from the office than a fuel-sipping moto with plenty of spunk to boot. Hit the jump to have a look for yourself.
