Added in: Kawasaki

India Kawasaki Motors extended its product portfolio with the launch of the new KLX140G trail-ready motorcycle. The KLX140G, which is a track-only product, has been priced at INR 3.91 lakh (ex-showroom). The price is slightly on steeper side but that’s majorly because the motorcycle is arriving to India via the CBU route. The KLX140G combines a rigid KX-based perimeter frame with long-travel suspension and large-diameter wheels (21” front and 18” rear), and a air-cooled 144 cc single-cylinder engine into one package.

The 144cc air-cooled, 4-stroke single-cylinder engine comes mated to a 5-speed transmission. But what makes the motorcycle really manageable is its lightweight. The KLX140G tips the weighing scale at just 99kg which makes it easily manageable on the track. The 21-inch front and 18-inch rear spoke-wired wheels come wrapped in off-road spec tyres.

The KLX140G rides on 33mm telescopic forks upfront and Adjustable Uni-Trak suspension at the rear. The 33 mm telescopic front fork gets 190 mm of wheel travel while the Uni-Trak rear suspension with a piggyback reservoir, aluminium shock body and reservoir gets 200 mm of wheel travel. The rear has fully adjustable preload, 4-way compression damping and 22-way rebound damping. The suspension is tuned to deliver steady handling and feedback, contributing to the KLX140G’s high level of off-road fun.

The new KLX140G draws styling cues from Kawasaki’s KX motocrossers. The motorcycle is built around a box-style, high tensile steel frame. The Two-piece radiator shrouds with ventilation holes contribute to a lightweight image, while the tank cover unitised with the upper part of the shrouds, thus ensuring a flush transition.

The foot-pegs are mounted as close to the bike’s center-line as possible to create a slim riding position. The handlebar is rubber-mounted to reduce vibration transferred to the rider’s hands for enhanced comfort. Like the KX racers, the KLX140G motorcycle features a stylish two-tone seat cover that uses a slip-resistant top surface for good grip when seated and smooth sides for excellent rider mobility.
