Kawasaki KLX125 Bike Overview
Kawasaki’s KLX125 is a basic commuter biker at best, although there’s a lot more appealing smaller bike on the market right now that offer more comfort and style but Kawasaki somehow have still made the KLX125 a sought after motorbike.
Kawasaki have kept everything about the KLX125 simple from the frame to chassis to engine and the green plastic motocross fairings so it is ideal for a new or learner rider, there’s no fear of doing too much damage with this model.
The KLX125 is one of Kawasaki’s popular models and it’s had a few updates since it’s first release back in 2010. It’s kitted out with a digital dash, decent headlight, brakes do the job and it’s easy to maintain. The low seat height make it great for shorter riders or those wanting to build up their confidence with their first ride.
Although it’s only a 125cc, Kawasaki still claims top speeds of 62mph and great fuel consumption so it makes for a great commuting machine.
