2016 Kawasaki Z125 Pro EFI (3)

Previously launched in Thailand late last year, the 2016 Z125 Pro mini moto was launched yesterday by Kawasaki Motor Indonesia, replacing the out-going Athlete mini moto. Now coming with EFI, the Z125 Pro has a 125 cc, single-cylinder, four-valve SOHC air-cooled engine.

Good for 9.4 hp at 7,500 rpm, and 9.4 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm, the 2016 Z125 Pro gets the power to the ground via a four-speed manual-shift transmission. This is slightly down from the Athlete that used a Keihin PB20 carburettor to produce 9.65 hp at 8,000 rpm.

Taking its design cues from the bigger bikes in Kawasaki’s ‘Z’ series naked sports bikes, the Z125 Pro rolls on 12-inch wheels, with a 100/90-12 tyre in front, and 120/70-12 in the rear. Front suspension is taken care off with a 30 mm upside-down fork, while a single offset absorber goes “boing” at the back.

Coming in two colours – Candy Lime Green and Candy Burnt Orange – the 2016 Kawasaki Z125 Pro is targetted at the younger rider wanting a quick, small motorcycle with trendy looks. The Z125 Pro retails in Indonesia for 29.9 million rupiah (RM9,400). Kawasaki Motors Malaysia brings in the Z125 Pro at RM9,900 excluding GST.
