2017 Kawasaki Z125 Pro – a worthy response to the release of Honda Grom
Meet the Kawasaki Z125 Pro 2017, which is a Team Green response to the appearance of the bike Honda Grom. This 4-stroke mini bike with engine capacity of 125 cubes and weight of 225 pounds by Kawasaki is going to take its place in the category of modest, affordable and recreational bikes, which three years ago was represented by a motorcycle Honda Grom.
Like a Grom bike, motorcycle Kawasaki Z125 Pro is suitable for two very different groups. On the one hand, it is the ideal solution for young and inexperienced.
But on the other hand, the bike 2017 Kawasaki Z125 Pro is just as suitable for older and more experienced generation of riders who want to supplement their already-extensive collection of bikes with inexpensive and fun two-wheeled machine and use it as a pit bike, or for shopping.
If we continue the comparison with a motorcycle Honda Grom, this dual approach is beneficial to the market, as a lowly bike attracts the attention of surprisingly wide and large groups of buyers. And Kawasaki is able to capitalize on this trend.
Technically, the bike 2017 Kawasaki Z125 Pro can be a very good competitor of bike Honda Grom. Both motorcycles are driven by a clock-4, 2-valve engine with air cooling and a working volume of 125 cm3 and weigh is approximately the same. Both bikes also “wear” a 4-speed gearbox.
Unlike Grom bike, the bike’s Z125 Pro bore has a little longer stroke length and a higher compression ratio. Therefore, it can be expected to be a little bit more powerful than the motorcycle Big Red, though these are trifles, given the relatively low levels of both bikes.
However, the price is very aggressive. Motorcycle 2017 Kawasaki Z125 Pro costs $2,999, while Honda Grom is sold for $3,199. Here Kawasaki clearly wants to get Honda around.
The Kawasaki argues that with Z125 Pro bike you can ride together, although it seems that few of the riders will verify this assertion. However, the bike 2017 Kawasaki Z125 Pro is a fun little two-wheeled machine that promises to cause a lot of smiles.
If take early sales Grom motorcycle as the criterion of the attitude of dealers to the motorcycle Kawasaki Z125 Pro, you probably should not hesitate with investment funds, if you like the Z125 Pro bike. Most likely, Kawasaki will sell them during the first year.
Given the trends observed in the small-bike market in the past few years, perhaps it is such bikes as the 2017 Kawasaki Z125 Pro that will change the belief of riders in the fact that the “bigger – the better”.
