2014 Kawasaki KLX 110L

Posted on by  

Kawasaki released the 2014 KLX 110L. The motorcycle is technically a more mature version of the KLX 110L, featuring a series of features that make it better suited for larger and more experienced riders.

Its seat height measures 28.7 inches thanks to a 2.4-inch longer fork that delivers 5.5 inches of travel up front and a longer shock that offers 5.2 inches of wheel travel out back. The bike sits on 14 inch front and 12 inch rear knobby tires that are mounted on tough, steel rims.

The 2014 model year continues to be propelled by the same 111cc, four stroke, SOHC, two-valve single engine. The unit is brought to life by an electric starter and is linked to a four speed transmission with manual clutch.

The 2014 Kawasaki KLXL is offered with a starting price of $2.499.

Kawasaki KLX 110L

Where Kawasaki’s popular KLX®110 is the model of simplicity in off-road performance, the KLX110L capitalizes on those desirable attributes while expanding its horizons. All of the classic KLX110 ingredients are in place on the L-model, including its smooth and powerful 111cc four-stroke engine with convenient push-button electric starting and a traditional kick-start lever for backup. But several key features further enhance the KLX110L’s off-road prowess, making it the perfect off-road fun machine for larger and more experienced off-road riders of all ages.

In this case, bigger, or taller, is better, as the KLX110L’s seat height measures 28.7 inches – nearly 2 inches higher than that of the standard KLX110 – thanks to a 2.4-inch longer fork that delivers 5.5 inches of travel up front and a longer shock that offers 5.2 inches of wheel travel out back. Naturally, this taller suspension comes with optimized spring and damping settings, giving those slightly larger riders the ability to push the KLX110L as hard as they choose.

More experienced riders often demand the superior momentum control of a manual clutch, so the KLX110L gets one to complement its smooth-shifting four-speed gearbox. This combination lets more aggressive riders wring every drop of performance from the KLX110L’s torque-tuned, four-stroke engine.

Kawasaki’s design team outfitted the KLX110L with a fuel tank, seat, side panels, shrouds and fenders that mimic the championship-winning KX™450F’s bodywork. An MX-style seat is part of the package, along with a handlebar shape optimized to provide excellent comfort and control to a wide variety of riders. All the right steps have been taken to expand the KLX110L’s off-road horizons. It’s sure to expand yours.

The KLX110L can be customized with Authentic Kawasaki Accessories available at Kawasaki dealers.
