2021 Kawasaki KLX140RL Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

CONFIDENT HANDLING
LIGHTWEIGHT RIGID FRAME
A lightweight box-section perimeter frame made from high-tensile steel provides exceptional rigidity and strength. The narrow profile contributes to an easier rider grip and smoother movement on the bike. Working together, the highly capable suspension and lightweight chassis deliver handling that exudes confidence.

SMOOTH POWER
ELECTRIC START
The high-revving, 144cc, air-cooled SOHC 4-stroke engine easily starts with the push of a button. Air-cooling eliminates the need for radiators, keeping the chassis slim and lightweight while a 5-speed transmission with manual clutch delivers smooth shifting and acceleration.

RELIABLE BRAKING
FRONT AND REAR DISC BRAKES
Front and rear disc brakes provide strong progressive stopping power. The 220mm front petal disc with a dual-piston caliper is complemented by a 186mm rear petal disc with single-piston caliper, inspiring confidence on the trails.
