Kawasaki’s Most Nimble Bike...

The 2017 Kawasaki Z125 PRO is the bike to conquer the city, regardless of your riding experience or how much gas money you have in your pocket. Built with an emphasis on fun, the Z125 PRO is designed to amplify the thrill of riding.

The Z125 PRO is a visually striking motorcycle with styling that’s a little on the dark side. It not only has edgy looks, but it's also a blast to ride. It fits into that perfect package for those desiring a small, pressure-free motorcycle with plenty of capabilities, low price and great gas mileage. Ideal for someone looking for a real motorcycle, but without the high pressure and costs associated with a larger bike. Thanks to the performance-oriented suspension, easy maneuverability and high fun level, it’s also a motorcycle you won’t soon outgrow. The Z125 PRO was built for the pureness of the riding experience.

Small in size. Big on fun. The all-new Kawasaki Z125 PRO is a nimble streetfigher that’s designed to defy what a lightweight motorcycle can be. With radical Kawasaki “Z” styling, the Z125 PRO is your invitation to the rebellious side of fun.

Enjoy!

Not seeing it. Unless that top pic is shopped, looks way small.

Doubt it will sell well in North America except possibly with teenagers with a bit of coin in their pocket, might do okay in the UK as a step up between moped's and the 250 class entry level bikes, best market for this machine would be places like the Philippines and other countries in SE Asia where 185 and 250 class bikes dominate.
Always ask why.

Judging by the guy on the bike in the picture....the bike looks teeny. This bike might be suitable for small people who need to get around town.

I love that it says it's capable of 2Up riding! Where? Willy Wonka's chocolate factory?

That aside, I gotta admit this thing looks like more fun than a ping pong table. I'd never manage to fold myself onto it, but what a blast for someone who could. Cool.

Why wouldn't it sell? This is Kawasaki's competition to the Honda Grom, and those are selling well.

Besides the Z 125 Pro, which has a conventional manual transmission, Kawasaki is also selling an automatic transmission version, the Z 125. Smart marketing from Kawasaki.

According to the posted data this is a 31.7" seat height.
Does it have a 7' rider in the photo?

Because Honda gets to use that magic word "retro". Everyone buying the Honda Grom is reliving their first Scrambler. Kawasaki doesn't get to bathe their little 125 in that light.

I voted: Awesome, even if it's just for the laugh/smile factor.

Ya, I'm (so far) the only one who more than likely will... but that's ok. It's the epitome of a toy motorcycle. So useless but yet so fun. It makes little sense but so much at the same time. What a waste of money but is it if it's a blast to ride around your 'hood with a straight pipe scaring the crap outta the barking dogs? I've NEVER, EVER take this on a highway, you gotta have a slight eyebrow tweak to do that.

It's one of those bikes that anyone feels they could get on a have a blast.

If I see one on the showroom floor, I take a #selfie on it...should be the motorcycle equivalent of a clown car!

LOL.

Mike

P.S. MY BAD: While I linked the Cool Wall on the Cool Wall page, I forgot to link it on our home page, thus we got much less votes than normal.

2017 Kawasaki Z125 Pro - Coolness Factor = 57.1%

Motorcycle Cool Wall discussion: viewtopic.php?f=61&t=52719
Total Motorcycle model page: http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/motorcyc ... 25-Pro.htm

Your Coolness Factor of the 2017 Kawasaki Z125 Pro is:

Awesome (3 points) 14% [ 2 ]
Cool (2 points) 57% [ 8 ]
Uncool (1 point) 14% [ 2 ]
Fail (0 point) 14% [ 2 ]

Total votes: 14


= a Coolwall Factor of 57.1%


Final Thoughts: Our moderator JackoftheGreen sums this up nicely: "The official 2-Up touring bike of Willy Wonka's chocolate factory and more fun than a ping pong table." This is one bike that will confuse the heck out of the grandpa's but delight those young-whipper-snapers. At 6'4" I have to take a #selfie with it! Honda Grom's a good seller, now Kawasaki has one up on it. Pricing TBA, which could change things (good/bad).


Get excited as the next TMW Cool Wall bike for 2016 is now up for voting and discussion, have fun!
