2017 Kawasaki KLX140L


The KLX®140L off-road motorcycle is the bigger brother to the KLX140 and provides a roomier riding position for taller riders. It features larger wheels and trail-oriented suspension that stands up to more demanding trail riding.

  • Push button electric start
  • High-revving 144 cc air-cooled, SOHC, four-stroke engine
  • Five-speed transmission with manual clutch
  • Taller (19F, 16R) wheels than the KX140 (17F, 14R) contribute to a taller 31.5 inch seat height and higher 10 inch ground clearance
  • 7.1 inches of front and rear suspension travel to soak up bumps
  • Front and rear disc brakes provide strong progressive stopping power
