Three model Kawasaki KLX140R line for 2023
Sharing the same robust and highly regarded 4-stroke SOHC air-cooled, electric start engine matched to lightweight, rigid frames, the three bike KLX140R range for 2023 caters for growing riders and growing confidence alike with their narrow profile chassis’ contributing easy rider grip and smooth movement on the bike.
Equipped with five speed transmissions and manual clutches, the trio of KLX R models begins with the KLX140R. With its low seat height of just 780mm, this is the first chance for many young riders to experience not just the thrill of two wheels but also opportunity to master the operation of a manual clutch and five close ratio competition style gears.
Equipped with front and rear hydraulic disc brakes and sharing the same aggressive track-ready looks of the competition focused KX stable, the KLX140R is for many lucky young riders a “lime green hello” to the world of riding and Kawasaki.
Moving on physically – and appealing to riders further up the height and age scale – is the KLX140R L. Sporting 19-inch front and 16-inch rear wheels, the KLX140R L rider will enjoy an 800mm seat height and a curb mass of just 95Kg making the machine easy to manoeuvre when riding and a cinch to load after a long day of enjoyable riding.
At the zenith of the KLX140R range for 2023 is the KLX140R F equipped with adult off road bike sized 21-inch front and 19 inch rear wheels. Making full use of the 8.3kW (11PS) power and 12Nm (1.2kgm) torque at 6000 rpm that is a characteristic of all machines in the KLX140R range, the KLX140R F pilot can relish similar chassis dimensions to an adult MX machine while having the reassurance of predictable and manageable power delivery plus adjustable rear suspension. As a final step before entering the full-on competition arena, the KLX140R F model is a great choice of machine.
From juniors first tentative steps to pushing the door wide open on adult riding, the highly regarded KLX140R range is ready and willing to add fun and enjoyment in 2023. Available from early November, prices for the three models include:
KLX140R – £3499
KLX140R L – £3749
KLX140R F – £3999
