2014 Kawasaki KLX125

Posted on by  

With its compact chassis, minimalist fairing and superior ergonomics, the Kawasaki KLX125 will reward you with first class off road performances any time you want to have some fun on two wheels.

The bike weighs only 113 kg and is propelled by a 125 cc, air-cooled, 4-stroke single cylinder, SOHC 2 valves engine which cranks out a maximum output of 7.6 KW (10.3 PS) at 8,000 rpm and 10.0 NM (1.0 KgƒM) of torque at 6,400 rpm. All this power is kept under control by a five speed transmission with wet multi-disc clutch.

The engine is mounted on a light permiter steel frame which is combined with 33 mm front forks and a rear Uni-Trak suspension.

The motorcycle’s speed is kept in check by a set of front and rear petal disc brakes.

Kawasaki KLX125

Petal disc brakes

Petal brake discs front and rear provide superb stopping power. In addition to helping reduce unsprung weight, the wave shapes of the petal discs help clean the brake pads for more efficient braking performance.

Well-balanced proportions

With all chassis components were designed specifically for the 125 cm³ class (rather than borrowed from larger-displacement models), the KLX125 has very well-balanced proportions that add to a sharp appearance.

Lightweight & compact

Because its chassis components were designed specifically for the 125 cm3 class, the KLX125 offers a lightweight, compact package which results in a low seat height.

Big-bike FI system

The KLX125 features a big-bike style FI system (where fuel pump, injector and throttle body are all separate pieces). This type of system reduces the chance of air ingestion, making it ideal for spirited sports riding.
