SE Asia is the ONLY market for Z125 currently...Not surprised as Thailand has a huge motorcycle culture and this is boosted by their ability to lane split legally. Just a faster way to get around without getting stuck in traffic all the time and they even have motorcycle taxis too!
Asia may be one of Kawasaki's biggest markets for the z125.
not all of that is passion. They are restricted by displacement, meaning many of the mods are designed to make te bikes look bigger or more powerful without going over the displacement limits.They are also really passionate about their bikes, passionate enough that they'll spent a lot of money on modifications, seen some crazy things come from those ways, impressive, can't wait to see what they end up doing to the Z125.
Good point, forgot that one. That might help a lot of them make the case to boost power, throwing on a turbo as one of the solutions, and even a big bore kit.not all of that is passion.

thats not true, Kawasaki Canada is just as interested in selling you a bike as Kawak USA. Have you reached out to Kawasaki CAnada to ask them when they hold events?I would have soooooooo much fun at a demo ride for the z125. Seems to me they often go to the US with stuff like this but skip Canada.
problem is, that as of now Kawasaki reps are saying its not going to Europe. No one is talking about NA right now either...There should be some shows coming up around this time of the year or early next year, so chances are we might hear something from those reps, or maybe even see what we want to see at those very same shows
That's what I was thinking, China and India seem like some of the bigger markets out there that can use a bike like this. Since from my understanding they need more cooler entry-level bikes like this.Maybe they'll comment on it at one of the asian shows later on.
but you need to produce them locally in China and India or be smacked with draconian tariffs...That's what I was thinking, China and India seem like some of the bigger markets out there that can use a bike like this. Since from my understanding they need more cooler entry-level bikes like this.
As far as i understand it to be that will indeed be the case here, haven't heard a single thing come from Kawi on it going to other markets, till then, it will just be in that asian market and even surrounding markets.So the Z125 is just going to be a Thailand bike for now?
