Kawasaki has showcased their new small capacity motorcycles at the ongoing 2018 Intermot show in cologne, Germany. The two motorcycles, the Ninja 125 and the Z125 will come under Europe's A1 entry-level licensing category.
The two motorcycles, the Kawasaki Ninja 125 and the Z125 are targeted towards a younger audience. Both the 125cc offerings will be the new entry-level motorcycles for the brand. Both motorcycles will come well-equipped with features and other styling elements borrowed from their respective larger siblings.
As the name suggest, the Ninja 125 will be a fully-faired motorcycle offering, featuring sharp bodywork at both the front and rear. The styling on the Ninja 125 is similar to its larger 300cc offering. This includes similarly designed fuel tank, front mudguard, wheels and mufflers. While the tail has a steeper rake angle, similar to the latest-generation Ninja 650.
The Kawasaki Z125, on the other hand, is the company's naked-sport offering. Similar to the Ninja 125, the Z125 also borrows its styling from the larger ‘Z' models. The motorcycle comes with a green trellis frame along with a black and white paint scheme.
Both motorcycles come powered by the same 125cc, single-cylinder engine. It produces 14.8bhp and 11.6Nm of torque mated to a six-speed gearbox. Both the Ninja 125 and the Z125 use 37mm telescopic forks and a monoshock at the rear with preload adjustability. Braking is handled by 290mm and 220mm front and rear disc, respectively. The brakes are further supported by dual-channel ABS which comes as standard.
Apart from the styling and mechanicals, the two 125cc motorcycles also come with optional seat height adjust. The kerb weight of the Ninja 125 stands at 148kg, while the Z125 weighs 146kg.
Thoughts On The Kawasaki Ninja 125 & Z125
The two Kawasaki Ninja 125 and the Z125 will rival the likes of the KTM Duke & RC 125 offerings in the international markets. However, there is no news of Kawasaki bringing the two entry-level motorcycles to the Indian market.
