2022 Kawasaki Z125 PRO

The 2022 Kawasaki Z125 PRO: A Hooligan You’ll Be Happy to Hang With

Small bikes can still offer big thrills, and Kawasaki is out to prove that with the Z125 PRO. Yes, it’s compact appearance may invite comparisons to the Honda Grom at first glance—but also like the Grom, it’s got power and performance capabilities you’ll be pleasantly surprised by if you give it a fair shot. Not all high-quality offerings from big Japanese bike brands are track-devouring hypersports.

Note that there are a few upgrades on this year’s model: the 2022 Z125 PRO gains an LCD instrument panel, plus a smart regulator, and some aesthetic touches like golden forks and brand-new graphics. It also comes in a new color: pearl shining yellow.

No big changes to the engine; you’re getting the same small-but-mighty fuel-injected 125cc engine that powered last year’s Z125 PRO, producing 9.3 hp and 7.1 lb-ft of torque @ 6,000 rpm. Other major features include a smart regulator and a gear position indicator on the LCD screen.

As the smallest bike in the 2022 Kawasaki motorcycle lineup, the Z125 PRO has a lot to prove—but it demonstrates its value admirably. Prices for this bike start at $3,399 USD / $3,799 CAD.

On this page: we’ve curated specs, features, news, photos/videos, etc. so you can read up on the new 2022 Kawasaki Z125 PRO in one place.

2022 Kawasaki Z125 PRO Features

Smart Regulator

The electric power used for lights and fuel pumps is produced by a bike’s generator. The regulator takes this power and maintains the voltage at a constant level. The Smart Regulator Kawasaki developed for small-displacement models features a built-in microprocessor, enabling control of the charging function and the headlamp.

This control enables charging to be done even at idling speed, when the voltage generated is at its lowest, (provided conditions are standard and no accessories are being used), which exceeds the ability of current regulators. Additionally, once the battery is fully charged, or when the throttle is opened quickly, the smart regulator turns the charging function off, instantly reducing the electrical resistance of the generator. This enables the energy used to drive the generator to be saved – usually a big loss, especially for a small-displacement engine. By minimizing power loss, the Smart Regulator contributes to increased fuel efficiency.
