2020 Kawasaki KLX140:

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. The low KLX140 uses a 17” front and 14” rear wheel.

 

 

2020 Kawasaki KLX140 Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

The Kawasaki KLX® family of off-road motorcycles are widely popular for their low maintenance, easy-to-ride character, and incredible capabilities while on trails. The five models consist of two engine configurations and are built to suit a variety of riders.

The KLX®250 dual-purpose motorcycle is built to take riders to new places. Borrowing notes from the KX™ line and Kawasaki’s racing heritage, this 2020 street legal, dual purpose motorcycle is designed to cut through the busy traffic of an inner city or climb up a back trail to see the city from a more beautiful view.

The KLX®140 motorcycle is available in three model variations, and is designed to provide a natural terrain experience with memories to last a lifetime. The powerful 144cc, four-stroke, air-cooled, single-cylinder engine features an electric starter and keyless ignition. Its broad and smooth high-revving 144cc engine utilizes a manual clutch and five-speed transmission to offer an efficient and user-friendly feel. The KLX140 uses a 17” front and 14” rear wheel, while the mid-sized KLX®140L motorcycle is equipped with a 19” front and 16” rear wheels to accommodate taller riders, providing extra ground clearance on the KLX140L. The KLX®140G comes equipped with full-size off-road wheels and tires, using a 21” front and 18” rear.

The KLX®110 is a great motorcycle 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, four-stroke engine. The bigger KLX®110L motorcycle 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 and a four-speed transmission with a manual clutch.
