2004 Kawasaki KLX125 Review

2004 Kawasaki KLX125

17-inch front wheel and 14-inch rear wheel.

The 2004 Kawasaki KLX125 off-road motorcycle and it’s big-wheeled sibling, the KLX125L, are specially built for youth riders ready to move up from Kawasaki’s fun-filled KLX110 to something a little bigger. They’re also perfect for novice adult riders who like the confidence-inspiring low seat height and dependability of a Kawasaki.

Powered by a torquey and responsive air-cooled 125cc four-stroke single, both the KLX125 and KLX125L pump out plenty of rider-friendly power for off-road fun. The engine has been specially tuned for ample low and mid-range power and a smooth shifting five-speed transmission means there’s a gear for every riding situation. A cable-operated manual clutch, along with a digital CD ignition for quick starts, makes this quiet-running motorcycle reliable and easy to operate.

These easy-to-start off-road motorcycles, with their user-friendly four-stroke engines, share the same chassis and components but differ in wheel sizes and brakes. While the KLX125 sits on a 17-inch front wheel and 14-inch rear wheel, the taller KLX125L rests upon 19-inch front and 16-inch rear wheels. Plus, the 2004 Kawasaki KLX125 is fitted with drum brakes at both ends, while the KLX125L features a front disc brake and rear drum brake.
