Kawasaki’s streetfighters have a sidekick.

The all-new 2017 Z125 is a pint-size sport bike similar to the popular Honda Grom.

The 125cc single weighs just 225 lbs, has a 4-speed gearbox, and a very low 30.7-inch seat height that should make it easy to maneuver for new or smaller riders, and just right for anyone to zip through the urban grind.

The Z125’s borrows its body style from Kawasaki’s Z800 and Z1000 streetfighters, and it comes with an electronic starter and digital instrument cluster, just like its big sisters.

The starting price for the Z125 will be an appropriately small $2,995 when it goes on sale this summer.
