2004 Kawasaki KLX125L Review

2004 Kawasaki KLX125L

19-inch front wheel and 16-inch rear wheel.

With the KLX110 neatly filling the role of a youth size bike, what are youngsters to do when they outgrow it? Simple; get on the new KLX125 or KLX125L. With two models available, these intermediate dirt bikes are the ideal mount for growing riders, whether they are just starting out or moving up from a smaller motorcycle. And, a low seat height and comfortable riding position instill a feeling of confidence in anyone who rides it.

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.

One of the paramount features of this bike comes from the diversity it offers. The KLX125 sits on a 17-inch front wheel and 14-inch rear wheel, while the taller KLX125L rests upon 19-inch front and 16-inch rear wheels. The KLX125 is fitted with drum brakes, while the L model runs a disc at the front and a drum at the rear.
