The Honda MX125 Grom straddles the line between motorcycle and scooter and is fondly referred to as the ‘Monkey Bike’. Now, the Honda MX125 has competition from Kawasaki’s own monkey bike – The Kawasaki Z125 Pro. It looks like a green ball of fun and seems capable of taking many new avatars, just like the MX125.
The Kawasaki Z125 Pro weighs 102kg and can seat two people. It gets a 7.5 liter fuel tank, a low seat height of 30.7 inches and is powered by an fuel-injected 125cc air-cooled SOHC single-cylinder engine. The engine is mounted low and forward in the frame which makes for optimal weight distribution and handling. The transmission is 4-speed. The power figure is expected to be 10-11hp. Kawasaki has not released any official numbers yet.
