For 2022, Kawasaki has updated the Z125 Pro with a variety of cosmetic changes. New color options include Pearl Shining Yellow, Metallic Flat Spark Black, and Pearl Robotic White/Plasma Blue.
The Kawasaki Z125 Pro is marketed as an entry-level model in Team Green's Z series of naked motorcycles. For 2022, The look of the new Z125 Pro remains largely unchanged from the 2021 model—but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Like its larger brothers, the Z650and Z900 RS, the Z125 Pro features an aggressive design that's well worthy of the Z lineup.
The new Z125 Pro retains the styling of the previous model, with an aggressive headlight, sleek LED taillight, and underbelly exhaust. The 12-inch cast alloy wheels and gold-painted front forks lend this minibike a hint of sophistication.
The engine also remains the same, coming equipped with a 125 cc, air-cooled, 4-stroke single-cylinder engine capable of 9.4 hp and 9.62 Nm of peak torque. The engine is paired with a 4-speed manual transmission. Thanks to its lightweight chassis, the Z125 Pro weighs in at a mere 102 kg.
The Z125 Pro's suspension setup is handled by 30 mm telescopic forks at the front and a preload-adjustable mono-shock at the rear. 200 mm and 184 mm petal-type discs take care of front and rear braking, respectively.
The Kawasaki Z125 Pro is now available in the US for $3,299—in Philippine pesos, that's about P162,800. As an entry-level bike in Kawasaki’s Z lineup, this model should be a hit for beginner riders, but its US price could prove a hurdle for the budget-conscious. There's no word yet on a local release, however.
