2019. model. Blue Version: RRP £4,399. Deals on other Kawasaki bikes too.

The Ninja style is clearly visible in the new Ninja 125 with a silhouette and graphic treatment that owes much to Jonathan Rea’s three-time WorldSBK winning Ninja ZX-10RR. With the big bike look and feel, the 125cc machine surely fits well in the Ninja family.

The Ninja 125’s willing engine is wrapped in a tubular trellis frame, matched to a box section swinging arm. Top that off with the low seat height and the young Ninja package is complete and ready to take on those sporty adventures ahead.

Some of the comments here are just silly, its a 125cc obviously its not gonna sound or perform like a big bike, its perfect for getting around a city or town cheaply
A lotta people telling others what they should or shouldn't be riding and spending their money on. Iv been riding for 29 years and I miss that feeling of getting your first bike that you've been drooling over in the shop window, thinking one day. I had an NSR125R and loved it, rode it to death, was so excited riding it,Id wake up at 2am and go for a ride. Iv had several powerful/monster engines since all the way upto a 1500 but none of them beat that first bike feeling, so live and let ride and I hope someone gets their dream bike and saves a bit of money in the process.
Its not your money they are spending or as a lot of you would say, wasting, so who cares.

Unless you are talking about 2 strokes? 125's are limited to 15hp and the 4 stroke engines are built for that so there's not a lot you can do to up the power on them.

Learn, pass test, buy bigger bike if you want anything faster. Tuning a 125 4 stroke is pointless and a waste of money.

Looks and sounds fast
Nice bike, but I wouldn't buy this without a big chain and secure lock also. Theft magnet.
Nice bike though.
How long is this lease??

I'd add a ground anchor to that list.
I'm a bit behind with bikes (last one I owned 20 years ago) are 125cc still restricted to 12 horse power?

Power limit now 15 hp and sporty handling will have you going around corners faster than those 10 hp chinese knock off bikes.

No they can't. Modern bikes still can't break the laws of physics. You might get another 3bhp out of it if you waste a lot of money.

It may be different around your parts, but the amount of nutters i see "filtering" on the inside on a left turn, and igoring red lights etc. is incredible.
They sometimes take the chance, and they pay the price, unfortunately.
Agree this is a theft magnet, and personally think its absiolutely crazy to spend nearly 4k on a 125, but each to their own

I only ever talk about 2 strokes...

I should add that I don't like roadbikes, never have, always been an off-roader since about 5 years old...

Only lasted about 6 months though, 125cc provisional license restrictions came in 1983, the first power valve equipped bike was the RD350YPVS which was released in 1983.

The previous LC's (and Gammas) were quick though, must have been a hoot on L plates waiting for the magical 6k rpm.

Might have to dig out my TS125R this weekend
Av got 636, what a machine.
Could anyone recommend a Honda dealer. Was thinking about getting moped 125. Something reasonably priced and reliable.

Agree this thread has brought out some right idiotic comments.
39850241-ireSH.jpgMe, racing a Kawasaki AR50 11bhp and 15 stone-ish. Mazing fun. God, I love two strokes.
I was only saying to the wife the other day how much I would have loved to have had a 125 which looked like the 125s of today (I had an RG125 Gamma for 3 years and we'd just walked past a YZF125). They're physically much bigger, more comfortable and absolutely brilliant MPG - perfect for commuting. Personally I'm waiting for the new electric motorbikes to appear - until then I'll thrash the 50s and cruise on the Harley

Congratulations on surviving, x7 Suzuki as I remember?
Buy a crap 125 if you're a learner, because as soon as you pass this thing will be a pile of junk. If you're someone with a license, what the hell are you doing wasting money on this? Even a £500 GPS500s is better.

58 MPH out of a Garelli Tiger Cross (50cc) in 1974. Happy days. Wish I had kept it as they are now worth loads. Paid 60 quid for it back in the day, now going for 5 grand.39850450-dQSPe.jpg
4K on a bike that would be struggling to stay at the speed limit when going uphill. Get the test done and use the money to buy something decent like an inazuma 250 or a crf250l if you want a small bike. This is a pointless bike.

I would agree, I bought an old banger ex riding school bike to learn on, also spent some time tidying it up, good way to find your way round a bike by getting your hands dirty. Passed my test, and sold it for a nice profit.
Think the youngsters nowadays would not be seen dead on an old CG125, would rather spend thousands on something like this, and suffer the depreciation as soon as they pass their test.

I had a RD200 in 1977/78, flying machine. Remember it cost me £412 from Lloyds bike shop in Hamilton. I must have crashed it sooooo many times.
Good price. I payed £3200 back in 2010 for a yzf125 new. So considering this is a good price for a city bike or starter
