    After Years of Faithful service by Our "Pantera" Motorcycles we finally decided to upgrade! So checked out Kawasaki and decided to go "Team Green" and get a few KLX140 and KLX250 as replacements. All Our 9 Panteras sold quickly much to My surprise although at 25.000 Baht they were a pretty Cheap and Reliable Bush Basher! Anyway down to Kawasaki to Get Our New KLX140 which they had previously told me were in stock! Much to My shock they were now Out of Stock and were awaiting a New Model! So We put down the Deposit and began Our wait? In the mean time We made do with My KLX250 and managed to buy a couple more as well. After 3 Months the New KLX140 finally arrived in town so in to collect, One we loaded into the back of My Pickup. A good point is They can fit into the Tray of a 4 Door Pickup with the Tailgate closed, Handy! The other 2 Myself and Kiwi John Christened by Riding them back through the Jungle Trails all the way to the X-Centre. I was Pleasantly surprised at how much fun these little Bikes are and I can fully Recommend them to any of You out there who are looking for a Play Bike! Due to there Size anyone can have a Go even the Ladies! I know Ritchie has one for His Lady and they regularly call in here when out in the Weekends! Power is good and alot more than the 125 KLX. Gearing is fairly low so they don't have a High Top Speed but will pull Strong in every Gear. Great Handling and Grip from their Knobbly Tyres also.
    The KLX 250 I am using have all had the Replacement Highflow Airbox Snorkel fitted and had the Rev Limiting ECU fixed so Run much better than Standard! Here are some Photos of "Team Green Kawasaki"

    Great Value and Fun I think! Enjoy!

    Ian, congratulations in finally getting them, must admit, that this is a pretty good looking collection at the X-Center and I hope they will serve you well for the years to come !! Seen them last weekend after the SSR/GTR dash and I am impressed, they look much more mature than the 125 versions. Cheers, Franz

    I did just a quick run down the road on the KLX140 and seems like it would be a lot of fun in the dirt.
