Kawasaki’s two new 125cc bikes will hit the market in late 2018; going to be most affordable bikes from the brand
Kawasaki has announced it will launch two new 125 cc bikes in late 2018. One is going to be the Ninja 125 mini sportsbike, while the other one will be Z125 naked bike. Alongside the announcement, the Japanese bike manufacturer has teased both models by their silhouette online. Both the bike will arrive as most affordable Kawasaki models.
As the Japanese brand claims, the bike will arrive with unique and fresh styling previewing Kawasaki’s future design language. Both the models are currently under developed and despite being powered by 125 cc engines, they will come with impressive performance. Also, the bike manufacturer believes these models will be helpful in bringing in more customers, specially new age buyers.
Expect both the bikes to come with design inspiration from their bigger siblings, but there will be distinctiveness as well. Initially, Kawasaki will focus on European market with these bikes and rest of the world will follow. It has become a strong premium bike brand in the Indian market and considering the fast growing demands for premium bikes in the country, we can hope the company brings these two models here. However, there are no such words yet from Kawasaki. But, we hope to learn more in coming months.
With Suzuki launched its GSX-R125 and GSX-S125 earlier this year, Kawasaki became the only Japanese brand that doesn’t have a 125 cc motorcycle in its portfolio. Now, with the brand ready to join the bandwagon, it is clear how they are eager to penetrate the lower segment of the market. Eventually, it will help the company to grow significantly.
As Kawasaki reveals, it has started working on the 125 cc models after conducting market research and receiving positive demands for such bikes. Demands for such entry level machines from the premium bikemaker has been consistent from several parts of the world and here come the resultant products.
