Good news for those of you across the pond. After watching its Thailand and Indonesia reveals with envy, the Kawasaki Z125 Pro is finally heading your way.
Earlier this week, a group of American Motorcycle Press was invited to Kawasaki’s headquarters in Irvine, California for a special announcement; the Z125 Pro is being brought to the United States. The North American Launch of the Z125 Pro will be taking place in April 2016 and it will go on sale in June 2016.
The Honda Grom has been doing well since it was first released and the sub 500cc bike has been flying off showrooms floors. This means there’s a large marker for 125cc bikes and now the Grom is about to get some competition. Kawasaki is gunning for the Grom starting with the MSRP price at $2999, undercutting the Grom by $200.
Once available the Z125 will come in two colors, Kawasaki's iconic Candy Lime Green and Metallic Graphite Gray. The Z125 Pro will come with a four-speed transmission and manual clutch, 2-inch cast aluminum wheels, 30mm inverted front forks with 100mm's of stroke, and a 4-way preload adjustable rear shock.
This is the moment you’ve been waiting for; are you excited?
