Kawasaki Z125 officially revealed

Kawasaki releases promotional video and official pictures

KAWASAKI released this promotional video for its new Z125 video over the weekend, along with its first official images and more detail on the bike.

The Z125 will come in two varieties – the Z125, which has an automatic transmission and the Z125 Pro, with a manual clutch.

Both models share the same 125cc four-stroke single cylinder engine with 24mm throttle body along with upside down forks, petal brake discs (200mm front, 184mm rear) and 12-inch wheels. Claimed kerb weight is a mere 101kg, while its overall length is 1,700mm and the seat height is 780mm.

The official photos show it’s also got the kind of sharp, aggressive styling we’d expect to on a naked Z-family Kawasaki, albeit scaled down a bit. It will be available in three colours – ‘Candy Lime Green’, ‘Metallic Graphite Gray’ and ‘Candy Burnt Orange’. 

When it goes on sale, the diminutive looking Z125 will be the only 125cc road bike in Kawasaki’s range, and one that's gunning for the success Honda has enjoyed with its successful MSX125, AKA the Grom.
