1 October 2019 Colour me good - New year / New colours for Kawasaki’s 125cc duo

A year after launch, the combination of Ninja 125 and Z125 has been responsible for a welcome number of new, young riders joining the Kawasaki two-wheeled family.

Created after wide-reaching “in market” research within Europe both the faired Supersport styled Ninja and aggressive “Sugomi” styled Z machines are drawing fresh faces to Kawasaki dealer showrooms. Durably engineered to withstand the demands of learners, both machines rely on a robust 4-stroke power plant that complies with the European A1 licence category whilst providing ample performance and a dynamic riding experience.

Introduced with the help of 2018 World WSS300 champion, Ana Carrasco, the Ninja 125 is certainly not in the shadow of its larger brethren and with a low seat height of just 785mm, coupled with a trellis type chassis echoing that of the Ninja H2, plus its peppy 125cc water-cooled engine, the smallest Ninja in the Kawasaki range moves into a second year radiating confidence.

Taking cues from its larger capacity siblings, the Z125 enjoys unique Z family “Sugomi” styling characterised by a balance between engineering innovation and styling success.  For new riders the “show” is as important as the “go” and in both respects the Z125 excels within its capacity class.   

Highly manoeuvrable, the diminutive Z allows riders even of smaller stature to have their feet reassuringly in contact with the ground when stationary and this, coupled with a natural ergonomic riding position, creates a justified sense of confidence in riders both entirely new to motorcycling and qualified riders that decide the virtues of a 125cc naked machine suit their needs perfectly.

In terms of colours for 2020, the Z125 retains the metallic spark black / pearl flat stardust white / metallic flat spark black option as a carry-over joined by two new looks; those being candy lime green / metallic spark black and metallic flat spark black / metallic spark black.

The Ninja 125 meanwhile appears in three totally new hues in 2020 led by a racy lime green / ebony combination sitting alongside metallic flat stardust white / metallic flat spark black and metallic spark black / metallic flat spark black.
Faired or naked - Ninja 125 or Z125 - the message is the same, welcome to Kawasaki and the A1 class, welcome to motorcycling!
