Kawasaki's 2004 KLX125 was built with the serious off-road enthusiast in mind. 124cc of power, a 31-inch seat height, and a sticker price of $2,299 differentiate this Kawasaki in what has become a highly competitive segment of the motorcycle market. Built in Japan but ridden the world over, the KLX125 was designed to be taken straight off the showroom floor and ridden away from the truck and into the elements - a 1.7-gallon tank provides fuel for the journey. Of course, a wide variety of mods for the KLX125 are available through a number of aftermarket companies in order to help you fine-tune this Kawasaki to your exact liking, although some of these changes may render it a competition-only machine. See what we think of the KLX125 and similar machines.

Kawasaki may not be the off-road racing icon that it once was, but its legendary history lives on in bikes like the 2004 KLX125. Much of the brand's motocross technology has found a way over to the off-road side, meaning that the KLX125 will have certain handling and delivery characteristics that are unmistakably "Kawi" in nature. At 176-pounds dry and with a 30.5-inch seat height, the 2004 KLX125 is set up to accommodate a wide variety of skill levels, rider sizes, and abilities. See below for even more specifications.
