Kawasaki Z125 Overview
Kawasaki launched the Z125 in 2019/2020 so whilst it’s still relatively new to the motorcycling market, Kawasaki have gone all out to make the Z125 the must-have small capacity machine. After 25 years out of the game the latest model massively at the new rider market, Kawasaki have made an effort to make 125cc machines a bit more… well sexy!
The aggressive stylings on the Z125 certainly give it a fresh approach to a beginner machine. The naked roadster look shares the same engine as its brother, Ninja 125 which was also given new legs in 2019. It’s cheap to run and pretty reliable with an upright riding position it makes it super comfortable and it’s fairly lightweight which is ideal for a newbie.
ABS as standard on the Z125 but it does lack some of the extras you’d find on the rival 125cc machines on the market right now. It’s still kitted out with a basic LED screen and decent suspension, but the good stuff comes aftermarket so it’s well worth remembering you’re thinking about investing. Comparing to KTM’s Duke 125 or Aprilia’s Tuono 125 which have got a lot more included as standard.
All in all if you’re looking for your first ride or a great little commuting hack then Kawasaki really have pulled out the stops for its step back into the 125 world.

The build quality and the fact it doesn't look like a skinny 125 it has attitude.
Would be great to have a visible gear selector indicator
I have only given the comfort 4 stars due to longer rides tend to cause an amount of vibration particularly in the left hand. Other than this I love the bike and comfort everywhere else. I cannot comment on Pillion as I have not taken anyone pillion
Can't go wrong with the build quality from Kawasaki
No problem with braking system
Nice and lightweight and takes corners well
This is just a 125 so not the best performing bike however for a 125 it does everything I need.
Around 200miles on a tank I believe
How cramped everything feels when sat on it.
Really good quality - no issues
Breaks really well
Really smooth and well built.
Powerful for a 125 but not top of the range.
