As Shigemi Tanaka of Kawasaki Motors Europe commented: “The J125 will take Kawasaki into new areas of the European powered two wheeler market.  “The J300 has quickly established a reputation for quality and fun, now it is time for Kawasaki to enter one of the most popular scooter segments, the 125cc class.

“We hope the J125 will attract those who already understand the benefits of scooters in the crowded urban environment, as well as those who see this A1 driving licence category machine as their first taste of the fun and freedom on a powered two wheeler.”
