Kawasaki have released details of the 2019 Z125 which will use a brand-new 14.75bhp liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine.

The Zed is released alongside a faired Ninja 125 and the pair represent a return to the A1 licence class for Kawasaki after a 25-year absence, after an 'extensive' market research program by the firm's R&D team revealed a hunger for bikes in this segment.

Marking the start of a claimed stronger focus on the European market, Kawasaki promise a mixture of midrange and top end from the new four-stroke engine, and with close to 15bhp on offer, it’s certainly one of the more attractive A1 propositions.

Both bikes also feature a trellis frame, although it is more obvious on the naked Z125 than its faired Ninja counterpart. The design of both bikes apes that of larger capacity machines, meaning street-cred a plenty for new owners.
