Most off-road motorcyclists can vividly recall their first bike – from what it looked like to the excitement of learning to ride.
The Kawasaki KLX110 stirs the same sense of excitement among young riders. The bright green graphics, non-intimidating nature of a four-stroke engine and automatic clutch make learning to ride with their parents an enjoyable adventure. The mini-thumper performance of the KLX110 also makes it the ultimate pit bike and weekend racer.
The KLX110 is powered by an 111 cc air-cooled, two-valve, four-stroke engine. This motor is the epitome of user-friendly and is even equipped with a screw-type throttle limiter mounted on the handlebar housing. This easily accessible feature means parents can control the power output with a simple turn of a screw. The engine's tractable power is delivered to the rear knobby via an easy-shifting, semi-automatic three-speed transmission, complete with centrifugal clutch. Newer riders gain confidence quickly by focusing on steering and balance instead of clutch coordination.
The frame for the KLX110 is constructed from the same state-of-the-art high-tensile steel used on Kawasaki's full-size off-road machines, and its race-bred styling and graphics will undoubtedly please young motocross fans. The compact fuel tank, saddle, sporty shrouds, side covers, and number plate were all plucked from Kawasaki's smallest competition motocross machine, the popular KX65.
