Kawasaki KLX150L has made its appearance today for the launch in Ulu Yam, Selangor.  A bike made for offroad terrain and able to gobble up any road thrown at it. It feature a super big front tyre with the size of 21-inch which makes it easier to handle when it is soak in thick mud. The rear wide tyre with the size of 4.10 18-inch will ensure maximum traction of the tyre to the dirt, road or mud so that you can still move on. Powered with 144cc air-cooled 4-stroke single cylinder engine, it maxes out 12hp at 8,000RPM and 11.3Nm at very low RPM of 6,5002014-Kawasaki-KLX150L-002

Braking system is taken care by single 240mm disc brake with 2-piston caliper for the front and single 190mm disc brake with 1-piston caliper for the rear. This setup for me is considered an easy setup for easy maintainance after you have bring it to the jungle. Easy to clean, easy to repair.

Front suspension is equipped with 33mm telescopic fork while the rear got the iconic Uni-Trak suspension with 5-way adjustable preload setting. Fuel capacity is at 7.0 liter while the weight is kept minimum at only 115kg.

Price for the 2014 Kawasaki KLX150L is RM9,389 (basic) (from Sinar Turbo).
