Simplicity, Reliability and Fun for Kids of All Ages

Kawasaki KLX 110

The Kawasaki KLX110 may be small, but its good-natured, easy-to-ride character and accessible performance are guaranteed to provide maximum fun for off-road enthusiasts from age 8 to adult. With a low 26.8 in. seat height the KLX110 has all the right moves to instill confidence in young or first-time off-roaders. More experienced enthusiasts are sure to be charmed by its capability and versatility, making the KLX110 one off-road motorcycle that will never go out of style.

That’s because the KLX110 is a shining example of performance via simplicity and proven technology. Its push-button electric start epitomizes modern convenience, and with a traditional kick-start lever for backup, letting the good times roll has never been easier! Its 111cc four-stroke delivers smooth, user-friendly torque for exploring the off-road environment, and Kawasaki’s automatic centrifugal clutch system allows for easy gear changes. Its clean throttle response and slick-shifting, four-speed semi-automatic gearbox complement the KLX’s performance character to provide thrills for anyone who refuses to grow up.

Optimum wheel and chassis control is a key factor with any beginner/kids bike, and the KLX110 obliges with quality suspension front and rear. A single shock with 4.3 inches of travel and plenty of bottoming resistance handles things out back, while a beefy, 30mm telescopic fork offering 4.3 inches of wheel travel tames the bumps up front. Tapered roller bearings at the bottom of the steering stem add durability.

And the 2014 KLX110 also carries the bold styling of its championship-winning KX™ cousins. Its 1.0-gallon gas tank, seat, side panels, shrouds and fenders look as if they’re straight off the race-winning KX450F. An MX-style seat enhances the KLX110’s comfort, and its handlebar bend offers a high degree of comfort for a wide variety of riders.

Great looks. Legendary Kawasaki reliability. Push-button starting. And all this in a small, kid- and novice-friendly package. It’s no wonder adults and off-road veterans love riding the little KLX just as much as the kids.
