The perfect bike for kids and young adults, the KLX140L 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 high-performance suspension soaks up the bumps when the going gets rough. Powerful disc brakes pull the KLX140L 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 KLX140L is the perfect choice for those looking for a slightly larger FUN bike.
The KLX140L 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 KLX140L push button electric start and engine run-off controls are on the left handlebar.
The aluminium swingarm on the KLX140L 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 KLX140L features lightweight RK EXCEL aluminum rims.
While most “playbikes” feature a disc/drum combination, the KLX140L 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.
KX-based perimeter frame made of high tensile steel contributes to the high offroad riding potential of the KLX140L.
The sturdy 33 mm telescopic front forks have the spring rates and damping settings to match the higher level performance of the KLX140L. To allow for its higher average speed, the KLX140L also features a rear shock with piggyback reservoir. Both the shock body and reservoir are aluminum. The shock has fully adjustable spring preload, 4-way compression damping and 22-way rebound damping. The high grade KLX140L rear shock can also be fitted to the KLX140 to upgrade the rear suspension.
The KLX140L wheels are 19″ diameter front and 16″ 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 800 mm is a nice compromise between the smaller kids bikes and full-size machines. The KLX140L is recommended for youths up to 170 cm tall and weighing more than 55 kg.
