An impressive machine and a great choice for those looking for a fun

Kanishk Goyal | One year ago

The Z125 Pro is an incredibly fun bike to ride around town. The engine delivers a smooth and predictable power, allowing you to easily zip in and out of traffic and up the steepest grades of San Francisco. The four-speed gearbox helps with throttle control and provides a safe and comfortable ride for newer riders.

The brakes, while modest, are more than adequate for controlling this machine. The 200mm petal-style disc up front with the Nissan two-piston caliper, and the 184mm petal-style disc in the rear, provide adequate stopping power.

However, the Z125 Pro may not be the best option for taller riders. With a seat height of just 30.3 inches, a rider pushing into the 6’ range may find that their knees meet the bars easily. Taller bars and adjustable rear sets may be necessary to make this bike more comfortable for taller riders.

Overall, the Kawasaki Z125 Pro is an impressive machine and a great choice for those looking for a fun and reliable urban commuter. It's small size, smooth power delivery, and adequate braking system make it a great choice for new and experienced riders alike.

Great choice for those looking for power and performance.

Sana Ifran Khan | One year ago

This bike is a great choice for those looking for power and performance. It has a powerful 900cc inline 4 cylinder engine that gives out a lot of torque and power. The bike has an impressive mileage of 20kmpl on long rides and 18kmpl in traffic, making it one of the most efficient bikes in its price range. The bike is also suitable for riders of heights between 5.5 and 6 feet, thanks to its long and narrow design. The only downside is that the bike is quite expensive, but if you are looking for a great superbike experience under 10 lacs, the Kawasaki Z900 is the perfect option. Be sure to drive safely and enjoy the ride!

Great power delivery

Charu Jain | One year ago

The overall look of the bike is good and it has a great power delivery. It also has a comfortable sitting position which makes it suitable for long rides. With its lower seating posture, it gives a sporty feel. However, it may not be suitable for touring due to its almost upright seating which can be quite heavy compared to other bikes.

The ergonomics of the Kawasaki Z900 are great and make for a comfortable ride. The performance of the bike is outstanding with a strong throttle response and the quick shifter is a great addition to the experience. The inline 4 sound is an amazing attraction and the pickup is incredibly fast. The overall look of the bike is beautiful and the exhaust note is smooth and sharp. This bike is an excellent choice for anyone looking for a powerful and reliable superbike.

Lightweight Machine for Bike Lovers

Aham Upadhya | 3 years ago

Kawasaki Z250 is a comfortable motorcycle with perfect quality and good top-end grunt. It has an aggressive front and looks like a big motorcycle. The brakes are strong and friendly if you need them but ABS is omitted from the bike for India. The 6-speed gearbox gives smooth shifts and the clutch is well weighed with the lever providing amazing feel. It does excel when it comes to mileage and returns more than 30 km/l, resulting in a 500 km plus range on a single tank. The ride quality is good and easily absorb bumps on road. Plastic quality is average and rear view mirrors give decent viewing angle. It shares the same instrument cluster used by Ninja 300, but has a couple of changes to it. The seats are on the harder side but still offer a lot of comfort. In comparison to rider seat, pillion seat is quite inappropriate. I rode with two different passengers and they commented that the seat was too uncomfortable and stiff for a long riding. It has impressive handling and corners with good precision.

Best Features: Easy handling

Pros: Lightweight, easy handling, attractive looks, smooth gearing, huge tank capacity

Cons: Uncomfortable for long rides, expensive, No ABS
