Removed from the hustle and bustle of the city, even simple bikes can offer a great deal of fun.
Kawasaki recognised this, and introduced a playbike based on the KLX110. Designed for youngsters and mini-moto enthusiasts, the KLX110 can handle rider weights up to 70 kg.
Air-cooled 112 cc, SOHC engine pumps out plenty of responsive low-rpm torque. Compared to the earlier KLX110 revised valve timing results in an engine more powerful at all rpm. Revised carburettor settings match the revised power characteristics and offer more stable performance when riding on rough roads.
Electric starter offers hassle-free starting. KACR (Kawasaki Automatic Compression Release) (using the intake valve) provides easy starting for both the electric starter and kick starter.
Starter and kill switch are both located at the left handle grip, allowing the rider to operate the throttle with one hand while starting or stopping the engine with the other.
Transmission features 4 gears. While the overall ratio in top gear (now 4th gear) is about the same as the earlier 3-speed models, 1st gear is much lower and the gearbox has a wider range, which contributes to smoother transition, making riding more fun and more aggressive riding possible.
Neutral-only starting prevents the bike from being started in gear. Adjustable throttle allows adults to adjust the KLX110's performance to suit the child's riding abilities. Handlebar mounted kill switch shuts things down in a hurry. Three separate heat shields are mounted on the exhaust system.
Factory styling gives the KLX110 and KLX110L the look of true motocrossers.
