Kawasaki announces Ninja 125 and Z125

ONLY riders over a certain again will remember when Kawasaki last introduced a 125cc machine in the sports bike category in Europe.

Now the Japanese marque is at last promising a new offering, a Ninja 125, along with a naked Z125.

The new models, which are not set to be fully revealed until this time next year, were due to be announced in Milan today by Kawasaki’s Motorcycle & Engine Company President Kazuo Ota.

Speaking at the Eicma motorcycle show, where the bikes were shown in the above silhouette image, Mr Ota was expected to say: “These two new models - and others under development – share unique Kawasaki styling, engineering and riding qualities that only we can deliver.

“Brand affinity is something we strive for. Riding their first ever kilometres on a Kawasaki is a vision we have for people taking to two wheels now and in future. Motorcycles that can either be the only machine that some riders will ever require or act as a stepping stone to a larger capacity Kawasaki - we are confident our plans address both needs.”
