Kawasaki has launched the 2023 Z125 in Europe, its low-displacement but high-performance ‘naked’ motorcycle, which arrives with new colors and graphics, but maintains the mechanical set of the previous model.
Ideal for those who just got their rider’s license and want to ‘climb’ in the Kawasaki world, the Z125 is an urban ‘naked’ motorcycle, fun and practical for everyday use, but which delivers high performance with its liquid-cooled engine.
The 2023 Kawasaki Z125 is now available in Candy Lime Green/Metallic Spark Black and Pearl Storm Gray.
For the rest, this little ‘naked’ bike remains with the same mechanical set and design as the previous model, without any changes.
How is the 2023 Z125
The 2023 Z125 has a very aggressive design and is based on larger models of the ‘Z’ family, adopting the brand’s ‘Sugomi philosophy’. It brings the look of ‘Supernaked’ in a light and agile package.
It also features the same steel trellis frame as the Ninja 125, being slim, light and compact, complete with sport suspension. Unlike the sporty one, the Z125 has a split seat, with a 20mm lower seat option (offered as an Ergo-Fit accessory).
In addition, it has 17-inch aluminum alloy wheels, brake discs on both axles (290 mm at the front), independent sports ABS and 100% digital LCD instrument panel.
The Z125‘s engine is a 125 cm³ liquid-cooled single-cylinder, capable of generating up to 11 kW (15 HP) of maximum power at 10,000 rpm, and 11.7 Nm (1.2 kgfm) of torque at 7,700 rpm.
Finally, the gearbox is 6-speed, the fuel tank capacity is 11 liters and the kerb weight is 147 kg.
Anyway, if you are newly licensed and want to join the Kawasaki family, the Z125 is the first step to step on, as it offers a good base for later picking up a larger model.
The 2023 Kawasaki Z125 is offered in the UK from £4,299. For more information, access https://www.kawasaki.co.uk/.
