2010 Kawasaki KLX110 and KLX110L First Look

Tuesday, October 6, 2009

The new KLX110L gives larger riders a better option for the popular Kawasaki minimoto bike.
Do people even buy minibikes anymore? Didn’t that fad pass? Should a major manufacturer really be expending resources on a playbike that might’ve seen its glory days gone by? Apparently so because Kawasaki revamped the king of playbikes, the KLX 110, and the minimoto warrior comes into 2010 with a fresh attitude. Not only that, it gets a big brother, the KLX110L!

Kawasaki bumped the SOHC four-stroke motor to 111cc and replaced the three-speed transmission with a four-speed unit. Best of all, it gets the magic button! Electric start now comes standard and the rear shock gets updates for better bottoming resistance. Kawi wants the 110 to be kid-friendly, but it knows that grownups are out there bashing these things to death and that’s where the KLX110L comes in. The 110L gets a manual clutch to better handle abuse and longer-travel, upgraded suspension raises the seat height nearly two inches over the 110 (26.8 vs. 28.7 inches).
Watch your local Kawasaki dealership for the new 2010 KLX110 and KLX110L with their new graphics. They will be joining an unchanged KLX140 and KLX140L in the green pitbike lineup.

I wouldn't spend my money on one right now but it's a lot more appealing with the manual tranny. Four sppeds are way better, especially for adults.
