2004 Kawasaki KLX125 Off-Road Model

The Kawasaki KLX125 off-road motorcycle and it's big-wheeled sibling, the KLX125L, are specially built for youth riders ready to move up from Kawasaki's fun-filled KLX110 to something a little bigger. They're also perfect for novice adult riders who like the confidence-inspiring low seat height and dependability of a Kawasaki.

These easy-to-start off-road motorcycles, with their user-friendly four-stroke engines, share the same chassis and components but differ in wheel sizes and brakes. While the KLX125 sits on a 17-inch front wheel and 14-inch rear wheel, the taller KLX125L rests upon 19-inch front and 16-inch rear wheels. Plus, the KLX125 is fitted with drum brakes at both ends, while the KLX125L features a front disc brake and rear drum brake.

Powered by a torquey and responsive air-cooled 125cc four-stroke single, both the KLX125 and KLX125L pump out plenty of rider-friendly power for off-road fun. The engine has been specially tuned for ample low and mid-range power and a smooth shifting five-speed transmission means there's a gear for every riding situation. A cable-operated manual clutch, along with a digital CD ignition for quick starts, makes this quiet-running motorcycle reliable and easy to operate.

A high-tensile steel frame with a rigid carbon-steel swingarm add to the machines. durability and lightweight handling characteristics, while bumps are soaked up by a long-travel front fork and linkage-equipped single-shock rear suspension system. The combination of a short wheelbase and a very comfortable riding position make both the KLX125 and KLX125L fun to ride on a variety of terrain.

Inspired by Kawasaki's racy KX models, the fuel tank, slim seat and number plates give the bike an exciting look, while the classic lime green plastic gives it a true Kawasaki identity. Suggested Retail: $2,299.
