    * The 4-stroke air-cooled single cylinder engine offers a lightweight power plant with both reliability and strong performance.

    * Bore and stroke of 58.0 x 54.4 mm yield a displacement of 144 cm3.* Keihin NCV24 carburettor ensures smooth throttle response.

    * Forged piston is lightweight and very tough, for low reciprocating weight.

    * Secondary air system contributes low exhaust emissions.

    * Exhaust emissions clear Euro-III emissions regulations. A larger catalyser (located at the silencer entrance) ensures emissions regulations continue to be met with the shorter gearing.

    † Latin American models do not feature catalysers.

    Engine

    * Silencer features an oval cross-section, giving it a sharp, aggressive design. (Photo 1)

    * Electric starter ensures quick, hassle-free starting. A kick starter is also featured, providing a reliable back-up should battery power be low. (Photo 2)

    * 5-speed transmission ensures there is a gear for every situation, enabling quick pick-up when accelerating from a stop, and relaxed cruising ability when riding at higher speeds.

    * Shorter final gearing care of larger rear sprockets (and smaller front sprocket for the KLX150) than those of their predecessors (KLX150: 46/14 vs 43/15; KLX150BF: 52/14 vs 47/14) focuses the engine’s performance in the low-mid rpm range. This contributes to increased off-road performance, the stronger low-end enabling riders to continue moving forward even when navigating tricky off-road trails.

    * 5-plate clutch uses three different types of friction plates to ensure durability while reducing clutch noise.

    * All-round tyres offer excellent off-road traction as well as good on-road performance to allow riders to reach remote trails. Tyre measurements are as follows:

    KLX150: 70/100-19 (front) 90/100-16 (rear) KLX150BF: 2.75-21 (front) 4.10-18 (rear)

    * On the KLX150BF, aluminium rims contribute to lower unsprung weight. Front: 1.71 kg (KLX150) >> 1.4 kg (KLX150BF) Rear: 2.44 kg (KLX150) >> 1.55 kg (KLX150BF)

    * The KLX150BF aluminium wheels each feature 36 spokes, ensuring sufficient wheel strength. Bead stopper hole and plug added to the rims enable riders to use bead stoppers should they so choose.

    Suspension* Combined with the highly rigid frame, highly capable suspension

    ensures excellent handling and feedback.

    * On the KLX150, a ø33 mm telescopic

    front fork with 175 mm of wheel

    travel contributes to controllability even on rough terrain. Revised settings help reduce bottoming when riding off-road. (Photo 3)

    Brakes* Petal disc brakes front and rear, just like Kawasaki’s KX models,

    contribute to strong braking performance.

    * A ø240 mm front disc gripped by a twin-piston caliper offers strong, easy-to-control braking.

    (Photo 7)

    * Slowing the rear, a single-piston caliper operates a ø190 mm disc. (Photo 8)

    * Front and rear calipers use sintered brake pads, which offer improved off-road wear characteristics compared to resin pads.

    * A combination of form and function, the frame was also designed to be easy to grip with the legs, offering superior chassis control to the rider.

    * Handlebar positions the grips 13 mm higher and 32 mm farther apart. The new position contributes to increased off-road riding comfort, and helps reduce fatigue when riding on tough trails.

    * The handlebar is rubber-mounted for reduced vibration transferred to the rider’s hands. Further, the upper triple clamp and handle clamp are separate pieces, making it easier to install an aftermarket handlebar.

    * Throttle grips are the same as those on our top-class MX racers. Raised pattern on half of the surface makes them easier to grip.

    * Racy front fender contributes to the bikes’ aggressive, sporty looks.

    * Radiator shrouds feature a two-piece design. Their minimalist design means they are small and are slim where they come in contact with the rider’s legs.

    * Minimalist side covers were also made as small as possible.

    * KX-inspired two-tone seat contributes to racy looks and adds a high-quality image. Together with the shrouds, its pattern creates a line that flows from the front to the rear of the bike.

    * Sharp new headlamp design features a 35/35 W halogen bulb. A new meter visor contributes to the aggressive looks. (Photo 11)

    * Aggressive taillight design complements the bikes’ racy image. The long rear flap integrates the rear turn signals for a compact, tidy design. (Photo 12)
