2022 Kawasaki KLX110R Review and Specs

Kawasaki’s 2022 version of the KLX110R is a relatively new dirt bike, yet it has the potential to facilitate the transition of young riders to the next level. In Australia, you can ride the 110R on bush tracks or at a motocross park. It is a great progressor bike for those who have previously owned a smaller Kawasaki dirt bike, as well as a great starter bike for an older child or teen who is just learning to ride. 

In addition to an adaptive throttle limiter, four-speed transmission system with automatic clutch, lower chain guard, several heat shields, and a lower chain guard, any mini-motor enthusiast will enjoy using the new 2022 Kawasaki KLX110R. 

Those with the right size hands can ride the KLX110R because its lightweight, lively engine is ideal. Because of its proportions, it wouldn’t be obvious that it’s a minibike from the photos. However, the saddle is not big enough to accommodate an adult, but it is suitable for children. 

Beginners will find it easy to ride the KLX110R since it has an electric starter and a kill switch. What’s even better is that a lack of power isn’t a major issue as this dirt bike has a manual kick-starter in case the battery runs out of power. 

2022 KLX110R VS 2022 KLX110RL

This Kawasaki KLX110RL features a 112cc, four-stroke engine, which makes it a better choice for some raiders than the KLX110R which is essentially its smaller model. Other notable differences include a taller seat, manual clutch, longer suspension, and 4.8 cm more ground clearance. With these added features playing with this KLX110RL model regardless of your size or skill level will never be a problem. 

Having a dirt bike that breaks down constantly or has trouble starting is not ideal for riding on the track. This is why the KLX110RL is a perfect choice. Using the electric start, you can start the fun with a single push of a button. 

With a 110cm3 air-cooled engine, maintenance is a breeze and reliability are unmatched. Due to its optimum camshaft timing, it delivers excellent engine power at all speeds. Low tension piston rings ensure increased performance by reducing cylinder friction.

Easy starting is made possible by the handy electric starter. The KLX110R’s keyless On/Off switch is located on its left handlebar, allowing for instant ignition. When the handlebar “On/Off” switch is in the “On” position, a red LED warning light will illuminate on the left handlebar. 

Kawasaki’s Automatic Compression Release (KACR) on the intake valve makes it easy to start both with the kick and electric start. With a digital CDI ignition, starting is quick and reliable.


With an automatic clutch and four-speed transmission, as well as the N-1-2-3-4 shift pattern, this makes shifting easy. It is only possible for the engine to start in Neutral when the safety lockout system is engaged.


With factory styling, the KLX looks like a true motocrosser. A lot of our components have a sharp look, inspired by Kawasaki’s flagship KX450 motorbike, such as the shrouds, tank, number plate, and side covers.
