2017 Kawasaki KLX140L Review

2017 Kawasaki KLX140L on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

Open the door...

Off-road riders and mini-moto enthusiasts don’t have to settle for simple one-size machines with limited performance and cramped ergonomics. Kawasaki’s KLX140 has opened the door for a wider variety of riders in the small displacement off-road arena.

 

 



2017 Kawasaki KLX140L www.Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

THE KLX®140L OFF-ROAD MOTORCYCLE IS THE BIGGER BROTHER TO THE KLX140 AND PROVIDES A ROOMIER RIDING POSITION FOR TALLER RIDERS. IT FEATURES LARGER WHEELS AND TRAIL-ORIENTED SUSPENSION THAT STANDS UP TO MORE DEMANDING TRAIL RIDING.



 

 

2017 Kawasaki KLX140L www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

•Push button electric start
•High-revving 144cc air-cooled, SOHC, 4-stroke engine
•5-speed transmission with manual clutch
•Taller (19F, 16R) wheels than the KLX140 (17F, 14R) contribute to a taller 31.5 inch seat height and higher 10.0 inch ground clearance
•7.1 inches of front and rear suspension travel to soak up bumps
•Front and rear disc brakes provide strong progressive stopping power
