unfortunately word has it that Kawasaki is not interested in selling the Z125 in Europe... which is a real shame considering Honda has already sold over 1700 Groms in the UK...

its popular and people want it... FFS Kawak...

Can you think of a reason why not? Do they have a low displacement full size bike that they think would be cannibalized? Or maybe something else in a similar vein.

Apparently it does not meet European standards. This what was I got from poorly translated french moto sites.
Not quite sure which standards those are.
same standards that the GROM is held to... it doesn't make much sense if you ask me... unless they're going to do Ninja 125 ;)

^ That could be it. Odd that they wouldn't come out with a more expensive model with ABS for Europe. Is it not big enough of a market?
Adding ABS could cut into the profit margin too much though. Enough that they can't balance it out with price increases due to reduced sales or whatever...
