Kawasaki unveils new bikes
Kawasaki is giving riders a taste of what’s to come from two new 125cc models—the Ninja 125 and the Z125—available to holders of A1-category licenses for small motorcycles. As well as their names, the new bikes inherit the signature looks of some of Kawasaki’s sportiest bikes. The cycles’ most immediately striking feature is their design, with the 125cc Ninja notably referencing the Ninja ZX-10RR, and the Z125 inspired by the Z brand’s naked styling. Both bikes have tubular trellis type frames using the same stress technology previously seen in Kawasaki’s supercharged Ninja H2. The Ninja 125 and Z125 also share a single-cylinder, water-cooled engine rated at 11kW, or 15HP.
