Kawasaki has revealed its entry-level Ninja and Z series bikes at the Intermot 2018.
Kawasaki has just revealed the younger siblings of the Ninja and Z series, Ninja 125 and Z125. Both of them are entry-level motorcycles which produce the same power output. The Ninja 125 and the Z125 are both powered by the same engine and the styling factors are taken from the Kawasaki’s bigger capacity bikes.
The Ninja 125 is a fully faired motorcycle with aggressive looks just like its elder siblings Ninja 300 and Ninja 650. The front portion of this bike, fuel tank, mudguard and fairing resemble the Ninja 300, while the rear end looks like the Ninja 650.
The Z125 is an addition to the Kawasaki’s naked-sport lineup. The Styling factors are borrowed from the higher capacity Z series. The mirrors are shaped in a typical Kawasaki Z series style. The white and black colour with green frame gives the Z125 a very bold and attractive look.
Both the bikes are powered by a 125cc liquid cooled, single-cylinder engine that produces 14.8 BHP and 11.6 Nm which is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. These motorcycles have preload-adjustable monoshock with 37 mm telescopic fork and get dual channel ABS. The weight of the Ninja 125 and Z125 is 148 kg and 146 kg respectively.
The Japanese bike maker will launch these bikes in the European market to compete against the KTM RC 125 and Duke 125. But the sad part is that these bikes will not make their way to the Indian market.
