Smart Regulator for 2012 Kawasaki KLX125 and D-Tracker
This happens thanks to the new smart regulator and integrated microprocessor, with charging of the battery occurring even when the engine is idling.
When idling for 10 seconds or longer, the microprocessor in the regulator reduces the headlamp voltage from 13.5 Volts to 10 Volts, and reroutes the saved generator power to the battery. With the 2010 and 2011 regulators, charging does not occur when idling.
The charging function is halted when the battery is fully charged, or during quick acceleration. Kawasaki explains that since power is not drained from the engine to the electrical system in these cases, fuel economy is thus improved.
Both the dual purpose KLX125 (KLX125C) and motard-style D-TRACKER 125 (KLX125D) feature a 10PS 125cc air-cooled single engine mounted in a lightweight, compact chassis. With low seat heights and slim seat design, the bikes are both easy to ride and easy to walk beside.
While most bodywork components for the two models share the same design, the KLX125 and D-TRACKER 125 feature their own mirrors and front fenders. They can be further distinguished by their fork and wheels.
As for the colors available, while the D-TRACKER 125 comes only in Ebony Black, customers who go for the KLX125 have to decide between Lime Green and Bright White.
