Thailand‘s Kawasaki site has updated their price sheet to include the Z125 and Z125 PRO! Both models start at 74,990 Thai Baht, roughly converted to 2091.48 USD.
The identical base price could have been caused a typing error but it’s most likely from the lack of spec variation. Both the Z125 and Z125 PRO are similarly built except for the difference in Clutch and size.
Z125 : Centrifugal, Wet milti-disc
Z125 PRO : Manual, West multi-disc
Length x Width x Height
Z125 : 1,700mm x 740mm x 1,005mm
Z125 PRO : 1,700mm x 750mm x 1,005mm
Compared to Honda’s 2015 Grom ($3,199 MSRP) the Z125 costs around $1107 less not including international tax differences, shipping costs, etc. On top of that, the Z125 has a lower curb weight with a larger fuel tank making it the better bang for your buck.
We’re not quite sure but Thailand’s lower price may be related to Kawasaki’s production plant in Bangkok, the capital of Thailand. Motorcycles made here are sold in Thailand and exported to Southeast Asia, Japan, North America, and Europe.
It may not make an appearance in Europe but given the choice, will buyers choose the Kawasaki Z125 over Honda’s Grom?
