2010 Kawasaki KLX110L
Mini-Moto That's Fit For A Grown-up
With new dirt bikes rolling out onto showroom floors across American I just had to check out to see what was out there. There was a dirt bike that caught my eye because the seat height was ideal for someone like me or other riders that struggle to find a motorcycle that you can get your leg over. 40 years ago dirt bikes did not sit this high and was an issue but nothing like it is in today’s market. I have not ridden anything under 250cc since I was a teenager so it has been awhile. I did at one time try to go back and ride my Honda 125/175 (long story) back in the day and could not see how I could have ridden it. There is a dirt bike that may have changed my mind about riding a smaller motorcycle. This year Kawasaki introduced the KLX110L and actually got me itching to ride which is impossible at the moment due to the amount of snow on the ground though it could be an adventure trying to ride in this stuff. This dirt bike isn’t just for the kiddies and this one may have to be shared. Heck with that, get your own so you aren’t standing around waiting for your turn. Nothing like having to tackle your kid so you can ride the motorcycle and make them stand around.

Final Thoughts On The KLX110L
The KLX110L would make any advanced rider happy and offers the goods to do that. This four stroke will haul 150 pound plus rider and gives you an extra gear which bumps it up to four. I know this will be hard for some experienced riders who complain about five gears and always looking for the sixth. As always, not all bikes will make everyone happy so if this isn’t your cup of tea move on. With the added power comes stiffer suspension which allows for a more aggressive approach to riding. This is a great dirt bike for the right person and gives some us another option when it comes to finding the right motorcycle. For me with my racing days behind me, I still would love to have a dirt bike that lets me be aggressive when need be. The seat height on the KLX110L is 28.7 inches which is ideal for many riders that are a few inches short of being six feet tall and the dry weight being at 168 pounds is ideal for most riders. This dirt bike is a little dynamo in a small package and would be a fun ride.
Happy riding and keep the rubber side down.
