Kawasaki has announced a new 125cc bike for Asian markets, called the 2016 Kawasaki Z125. Having a compact bodywork and powerd by a 125cc engine, the mini-me version of the Z1000 would become Honda’s Grom rival, although it’s not clear the Z125 be available worldwide – as for right now it will be limited to Japan and asia markets.

The 2016 Kawasaki Z125 will be offered in two variants: The regular Z125 with an automatic centrifugal clutcha and the Z125 Pro with a manual clutch. Both models are powered by a SOHC, four-stroke single cylinder 125cc engine. Power sent to the front wheel through a four-speed transmission. The exhaust nearly unseen since it tucks in neatly under the engine.

The Kawasaki Z125 sits on the 12-inch wheels with a 100/90-12 tire up front and a 120/70-12 at rear. Other features include 200mm front and 184mm rear petal brake discs gripped by single-piston calipers, a 30mm upside-down front fork with a 100 mm stroke and an offset rear shock, an instrument cluster with an analog tachometer and multi-function LCD screen, an aggressive-styling multireflector headlight, a Z-shaped taillight, and so on.

As comparison, the Kawasaki Z125 has a 30.7-inch seat height compared to the Grom’s 30.1 inches, a larger tank than Grom’s (can carry 1.95 gallons of fuel, 0.5 gallon more than the Grom).
