The Kawasaki KLX 110L was especially designed to be used by the kids who dream of becoming famous dirt racers.

The Kawasaki KLX 110L is technically the taller version of the standard KLX 110. The taller height is given by the longer 2.4 inch fork that offers 5.5 inches of wheel travel and the longer rear shock which offers 5.2 inches of wheel travel.

This 2013 Kawasaki KLX 110L is powered by a four-stroke engine mated on a four speed gearbox. The bike can be started very easy by means of a convenient Push-button electric start, while a reshaped kickstarter is included as a back-up.

The bike’s fuel tank, seat, side panels, shrouds and fenders are borrowed from the race winning KX450F. The Kawasaki KLX 110L can be personalized with Authentic Kawasaki Accessories that are accessible at Kawasaki dealers.

Manual Clutch and Taller Seat Height

If Kawasaki’s popular KLX™ 110 puts smiles on the faces of both children and adults, the KLX 110L widens the grin substantially. Building on the appeal of the smaller KLX110 and its push-button starter, the KLX110L takes a good thing and enhances it even further. Making this particular brand of Kawasaki fun accessible to an even wider range of riders, the L-model incorporates several key features to make it perfect for those slightly larger, slightly more experienced riders.

The L-model is taller than the standard KLX110, due to its 2.4-inch longer fork that has 5.5 inches of travel and a longer shock out back, which offers 5.2 inches of wheel travel. This results in a seat height of 28.7 inches – nearly 2 inches higher than that of the standard KLX110. Naturally, the suspension comes with optimal 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 control of a manual clutch, so the KLX110L gets one to complement its four-speed gearbox. This combination lets more aggressive riders wring every drop of performance from the 111cc four-stroke engine. Convenient push-button electric starting helps make the KLX110L easily accessible to a wide range of riders.

The Kawasaki design team outfitted the KLX110L with a fuel tank, seat, side panels, shrouds and fenders that mimic the race winning KX™450F’s. 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. In other words, this one’s for kids of all ages.

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