Written By:

Kawasaki has unveiled its first ever 125cc scooter at the EICMA* Motor Show in Milan.

The Kawasaki J125 is basically a rebranded and redesigned Downtown 300i made by Taiwanese manufacturer KYMCO.

The J125 is powered by a 125 cc liquid-cooled SOHC four-valve single-cylinder engine, which develops 13.8 hp and 11.5 Nm of torque. The bike is a heavyweight though and weighs in at 182 kilograms.

Power is delivered to the rear wheel by a CVT transmission. The rear suspension features two rear shocks which are pre-load adjustable with five different settings. All the power and weight is brought to a halt by petal disc brakes at both ends, a 260 mm disc brake up front and a 240 mm one at the back. ABS is an optional extra.

The scooter features a two-tone silver seat, and a LED taillight and will be available in three colors - white and two different shades of black.

The J125 features under-seat storage that can fit a full-face helmet and an A4 sized briefcase, but there's also a glove box with a 12V socket and a cargo hook for excess baggage.

*EICMA, or the Milan Motorcycle Show is an annual show in Milan, Italy featuring motorcycles.
