THIS IS WHERE THE ADVENTURE STARTS.

THE KLX®110 MOTORCYCLE IS A VERSATILE OFF-ROAD BIKE WITH A LOW SEAT HEIGHT, PLUSH SUSPENSION AND AN AUTOMATIC CLUTCH FOR A FUN, CONFIDENCE-INSPIRING RIDE.
  • 112cc air-cooled, 4-stroke engine provides smooth power and rock solid reliability
  • 4-speed transmission with automatic clutch for stall-free shifting
  • Low 26.8-inch seat height
  • Sporty styling featuring Lime Green bodywork for race-inspired good looks

The biggest challenge in enjoying the KLX110 or KLX110L’s amazing off-road capabilities is figuring out who’s going to ride it first – because its compact dimensions, simple-to-use features, and choice of 2 models were designed for a wide range of beginning riders aged 13 and up.

 Small bike equals big fun in the KLX110. This is where the adventure starts.

2018 Kawasaki KLX110 Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

KAWASAKI KLX® 110 & KLX®110L

There’s no better motorcycle than the KLX®110 for a new rider who is looking to experience dirt for the first time. A high-tensile steel frame, 30mm telescopic fork, and single rear shock provide easy handling and maximum longevity. It also incorporates an automatic centrifugal clutch system that allows easy take off and shifting through the gears, helping the rider maintain focus on the terrain and to make the most of the 112cc single-cylinder, 4-stroke engine.

There is an electric start with an “off” switch right alongside it. The start button is located on the left-hand grip to allow throttle use during start-up, and traditional kickstarter as a back up.

The bigger KLX®110L motorcycle offers a natural progression as a rider grows in stature and experience. The bike has a taller seat height (28.7” compared to 26.8” for the KLX110), longer suspension travel and an extra 1.9” of ground clearance. A manual clutch can also be found to provide a more exciting experience, while an electric (with kickstarter back up) helps get the fun started quickly.
