The new 2015 Kawasaki KLX140L is a dirt bike and it is perfect for larger rider. This bike offers you a 19 inches wheel up front and 16 inches in the back that both fully two inches larger than the standard wheels of the off-road-worthy KLX140. Aside from the rims, the ergonomic comforts for larger riders are incorporated into the design of the 140L, including such a taller 31.5 inches seat height, more focused on performance-oriented suspension with a reservoir-type shock that larger and more fantastic experienced riders will warmly welcome. The KLX140L gives a convenient electric starting which is as simple as pressing the power switch and also thumbing the start button. Good thing, that same power switch still includes an internal LED to remind the riders when the ignition is on, even for preventing accidental battery drain. Its powerful, great and smooth 144cc four-stroke engine is easily manageable via a progressive forgiving manual clutch and five-speed, close-ratio transmission. A progressive clutch means that beginning riders can more easily get the hang of shifting and clutch use, while the half-clutch can be used at extremely low speeds to simplify the learning process at the same time offering a direct feel and tremendous durability. The engine of the KLX140L was wrapped in a high-tensile steel perimeter frame that covered by a KT- like a two-tone seat cover and sharp, shrouds, aggressive body work. This bike also has a high grade suspension includes a 33mm telescopic fork featuring custom-tuned spring rate and also damping settings to handle front suspension duty. The KLX140L capitalizes on the strengths of the KLX140 while further upping the ante with larger wheels, taller seat height and a more advanced and great rear suspension for an ideal blend of size and amazing performance. Enjoying the great-awesome outdoors with family and friends has never been more fantastic, enjoyable and exciting.

Kawasaki KLX140L Review
Trail Bike Test
Kawasaki KLX140L is a compact machine designed to inspire beginner to advanced youth riders. The bike is easy to use and reliable; it cans even returns to the pits without breaking. With the several dirt bikes we tested, the KLX140L is among the nifty and aggressive bikes that can go through technical terrains and mountain steeps. We rode the bike on a motocross track and surprisingly it showed us oozing torque upon twisting the throttle. Without a doubt the bike has superb power and precise handling. A beginner could feel that he’s in heaven with the smaller motor and rims of KLX140L. Starting the bike is easy with just a single push on the start button. If the engine is cold wait patiently for it to become warm. Once warm, it is ready for an extreme dirt bike action with a linear power up to the red line, where most riders will rarely hit while on the trail. We also rode on a rocky hill to challenge the bikes maximum capacity on dirt riding action. To our surprised it handled all the jump punishment we did and we never reached the low point though we are hitting the rocks really hard. The tires really did a great job for taking all of the pressure. KLX140L has excellent ergonomics with friendly wide foot pegs, rubber mounted handlebars, a soft and slip resistant seat that gives comfort when tackling hard trails. We had a great experienced in testing Kawasaki KLX140L on the trail. Its our pleasure to unleash its ultimate power and off road performance for a more exciting ride. From its styling and comfortability up to all the robust parts that made up its powerful machine – we gave it a thumb up.
