The 2021 Kawasaki KLX 110R/110R L: A Friendly Off-Roader For Beginners
The 2021 Kawasaki KLX 110R and 110R L dirt bikes are designed to be the perfect beginner junior motorcycles for those younger riders that want something to really get the fun going. Powered by a 112cc air cooled, four-stroke single, the bike develops about 7 HP and just a hair under 6 lb-ft of torque. Connected to a four speed centrifugal automatic, it can top out around 45 MPH. Going downhill. With a tailwind.
The KLX 110R is the base spec of the two, aimed more at the beginner. Of course, coming from a Japanese company, the bike is durable, reliable, and easy to operate. An electric start, twist-and-go throttle with the automatic transmission, and being extremely light weight, a beginner off-road rider will learn all about weight transfer, cornering, and trail riding techniques on top of a machine that will not let them down.
The Kawasaki KX110R L is a more advanced bike. With a higher seat height, higher ground clearance, and crucially, a four speed manual and left hand clutch lever, the bike is meant for those that have either learned through smaller junior bikes, or the KLX 110R itself, and want to learn “big bike” techniques. Powered by the same motor, it is a great side-step from the 110R as the bike is 95% the same, so there are no real surprises to confuse the younger rider.
The 2021 Kawasaki KLX 110R starts at $2,349 USD / $2,799 CAD, and the KLX 110R L starts at $2,549 USD / $2,999 CAD.
