    Not a clue. The linked website was in Thai, which I do not read. This was captioned as being a "spy" photo so likely little technical information is available.

    I know a few years back they had the KSR110 which was based on the klx110 motor. I know a few guys had them imported to the US. It is always cool to see more street legal minis here in the states but as the novelty wears off and there are used bikes available it will be interesting to see how the Grom continues to sell and this bike if it does indeed come to the states.

    Well clutch cover looks like the klx110l covers. And the head kinda looks the klx. It's hard to see in the pic and it doesn't help that the whole motor is black.

    They're still producing the KSR110 overseas so Im thinking they just bumped it up to 125cc.

    Kawie has been selling the Z125 in markets afar for the last several years, but it looks like 2017 is going to be the year that it comes stateside to do battle with the wildly successful Honda Grom. We were able to get ahold of some dealer-only images and it looks like March 4th is the date for the announcement.


    It is not the norm for manufacturers to announce pricing at this time, but Kawie decided to. At $2,999, and 125cc's of displacement, the K125 PRO is set to hit the Grom square in the face. The styling has not changed much from the Malaysian offering, but it is new to US buyers nonetheless.


    It looks to be about the same proportions as the Grom and early claims postulated that the Z125 would weigh in at around 222. That number swelled to 224.8 pounds (speculating) after the addition of the California equipment. The Grom comes in at 225. I could see that carb equipment weighing that extra 3 pounds for sure.


    The Candy Lime Green (lovingly referred to as Kawie Green) and Metallic Graphite Gray Z125 Pros looks to be rolling on a familiar 12-inch wheel and the pictures are bad, but I imagine that we will see a 100/90-12 up front and a 120/970-12 out back. These are a little more narrow than the Grom, so the handling might feel a little lighter than that of the Grom.

    Slick, can't wait to see what similarities it has with the ksr110 which has an immense aftermarket presence....ot to mention all the sweet klx110 motor kits.

    Kawasaki Z125 Pro street-legal monkey bike comes to the U.S. - RevZilla

    definitely looks like a klx110 head and shares the same stroke, 50.6mm
