Kawasaki has unveiled the Z125 prior to its official debut at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show in Japan. The new Kawasaki 125cc motorcycle will be offered in two variants – Z125 and Z125 Pro. The new Z125 is the first mini motorcycle from the stables of the Japanese two-wheeler giant and will compete against the Honda MSX 125 and Grom. The Kawasaki Z125 will be restricted to Japanese and Asian markets and is highly unlikely to make it to our shores officially. The Kawasaki Z125 might be small in size, but it packs a solid punch with respect to styling. The design of the motorcycle has clearly inspired by the higher displacement Z-series motorcycles with chiselled fuel tank, under belly exhaust, tank extensions and a petite tail section with Z-shaped LED tail lams.

The 125cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder motor produces 9.5PS of max power and the bike tips the scale at just 101kg. The Kawasaki Z125’s powerplant will be mated to a 4-speed automatic transmission while a 4-speed manual does duty on the Kawasaki Z125 Pro. The puny Kawasaki motorcycles also get good cycle parts like, USD front forks, monoshock suspension and disc brake at both ends to provide stopping power. It will be available in three colours – Candy Lime Green, Metallic Graphite Gray and Candy Burnt Orange. The Kawasaki Z125 has been priced at Rs 1.4 lakh in the Japanese market.
