Kawasaki has finally unveiled the smallest Z series motorcycle, the Z125 which is available in two variants – the Z125 and Z125 Pro.
Z125 gets an automatic transmission whereas the Pro comes with a manual gearbox and clutch. Sharing design inspirations from the bigger naked models, the new motorcycle manages to put up a very exciting look.
The bike gets a 125 cc air cooled single cylinder fuel injected mill. The front suspension gets upside down forks while the rear gets a monoshock with a 4 way adjustable preload horizontal offset. The multi-reflector head lamps in the front are mated with LED tail lamps. The instrumentation console gets a neat LCD display. The motorcycle also sports single petal discs upfront as well as the rear.
Designed for the Thai market, the Z125 and Z125 Pro can be seen as a product centred towards providing urban mobility with a small engine. And with the added benefit of an automated centrifugal clutch, one can enjoy a very convenient commute. The fuel tank has a capacity of 7.4 liters, so plan your long rides accordingly.
The small stubby tyres look great and along with the claimed kerb weight of 101 kilos only, the Z125 can be a serious threat to the Honda’s MSX 125.
The bike will be available in the following three colour options:
- Candy Lime Green
- Metallic Graphite Grey
- Candy Brunt Orange
The Kawasaki Z125 and Z125 Pro carry a price tag of Thai Baht 74,990 which equate to about Rs 1.37 lakhs after conversion to INR.
But is this motorcycle coming to India? Guess what, the official press release in Thai did mention ‘India’ but only when translated by Google. So, let us hope Kawasaki brings this exciting sportier 125 here some day…
Here are some pictures and a video of the Z125…
