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.

Clutch
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?

that's a smart way for Kawi to slot in the segment which the grom has gained a lot of traction in, what will be interesting is seeing how much interest is in both after a good amount of time of it being on the market.

Kawasaki probably expected owners to go aftermarket for accessories and didn't see a point to add them as an option. Odd because the bike is priced so low, people will have that extra cash to spend on accessories and why let them spend it elsewhere?

The only model accessories I see on their site are for the Versys and a Vulcan. Not sure why Kawasaki isn't providing Thailand with more OEM accessories.
The bike just released recently, so they might be running slightly behind on accessories. As important as accessories are, just getting the bike out there and into the hands of riders is always a solid strategy.
