The KLX140 has the Maximum Fun Factor
The perfect bike for kids and young adults, the KLX140 has just the right level of power, handling and attitude to raise the off road fun factor to MAXIMUM. Its smooth, easy to use power makes it a breeze for riders of all skill levels while plush, long travel suspension soaks up the bumps when the going gets rough. Powerful disc brakes pull the KLX140 up in a big hurry and KX inspired styling gives you a hint of the attitude that lies within. Whether you're new to riding or after a capable, compact machine that gets the job done with a minimum of fuss ... the KLX140 is the perfect choice.
144 cm³ Air-Cooled Engine
The KLX140 air-cooled single-cylinder engine offers a lightweight power plant that is both simple (to operate and to maintain) and reliable. The 5-speed transmission and the manual clutch are easy-to-operate by young riders if moving up from auto clutch models. The KLX140 push button electric start and engine run-off controls are on the left handlebar.
Aluminium Swing Arm
The aluminium swingarm on the KLX140 offers both light weight and increased strength. Like those on our KX machines, it features a hairline finish.KX racing-type chain adjusters allow precise adjustment of chain slack, helping to minimize drivetrain power transfer loss. KX-style wheels with strong, high-grade die-cast hubs offer the same durability as those found on our KX racers. Like our KX motocrossers, the KLX140 features lightweight RK EXCEL aluminum rims.
While most “playbikes” feature a disc/drum combination, the KLX140 has disc brakes front and rear for a high level of braking performance. The 220 mm diameter front petal disc and twin-piston calliper offer strong, easy-to-control braking. The rear wheel is slowed by a 186 mm diameter petal disc gripped by single-piston caliper.
Steel Perimeter Frame
KX-based perimeter frame made of high tensile steel contributes to the high offroad riding potential of the KLX140.
High Performance Suspension
33 mm telescopic front forks on the KLX140 are matched to the Uni-Trak rear suspension featuring a 5-way preload adjustable rear shock absorber for superb handling and offroad ability.
The KLX140 wheels are 17" diameter front and 14" diameter rear for a low seat height. Larger than kid’s bikes, and smaller and lighter than “full-size” play bikes, these KLX’s are a perfect fit for youths. The seat height 780 mm is a nice compromise between the smaller kids bikes and full-size machines.
