Kawasaki Z125 Review
Kawasaki is one of the top three Japanese brand as well as one of the leading motorcycle manufacturing company in the current world. Though, the products of Kawasaki are pretty much higher and out of reach from the middle class people. But there is no question about the quality of the Kawasaki products.
But also, like many countries, the young people of Bangladesh wants the products of Kawasaki in Bangladesh though many years ago, India made their products jointly with Kawasaki and the name of the product was Kawasaki Bajaj. But later, they were separated. Since then, Bangladesh has not seen the brand of Kawasaki but recently according to the demands of the people of the country, they have brought couple of categories of bike in Bangladesh but due to heavy price tags, these bikes are not getting popular. One of the is Kawasaki Z125. Kawasaki does not exported sports category bikes in Bangladesh because most of the people would not afford that bike. So, their exported categories are mainly dirt bikes and some others. Kawasaki Z125 is not dirt but also not as usual standard or sports bike. It is pretty small and called mini standard category bike. But if we look to the price tag of this machine, it’s quite heavy than expected. The specification details of Kawasaki Z125 are given below.

The bike is small and short but muscular fuel tank where at the edge, extended kit is added which makes the looks aggressive. The bike is also considered as mini sports bike due to heavy sporty design. It has small seating position but seems comfortable where small tyres with latest alloy wheels. It has also attractive engine guard which is almost alike with Apache RTR. The bike is naked but due to advance design, it looks complete faired edition bike.
Engine performance: Kawasaki is a leading Japanese brand and so, there is no question about the quality of the product and they always used best quality engine to their products and they did the same thing to Z125. It consists of 125 cc engine with 9.4 Bhp max power and considering the power, the torque is also good. The compression ratio of Z125 is also good of 9.8:1. Due to air cooling system, it can be told as mini standard bike where kick starting method is reduced. However, latest fuel injection technology is used to the bike and so, it’s mileage is good. COnsists of four speed gearbox, the top speed of the bike Kawasaki Z125 would not less than 100 km per hour.
Dimensions & seating position: Kawasaki Z125 is a mini standard bike which is suitable for short people. But, it does not mean that normal people can not ride it.

Suspension & Brakes: 3.9 in travel telescopic fork suspension is used for the front side of Kawasaki Z125 and 4.1 in travel swing arm, single shock suspension is used for the rear. The suspensions are reliable and matching with the wide tyres where the tyres of the bike are pretty wider than standard bike. One thing of the bike is heavy updated which is both disc brakes. In front, 200 mm petal disc brake is used and on rear 184 mm disc brake is used. Due to both disc brakes, the controlling wuld be better.
