The Kawasaki KX85 is effectively the two-wheeled version of the KFX90. Regardless, both vehicles offer plenty of fun, whether you’re riding a motocross bike or an off-road ATV.
The KFX90 ATV is well-suited to the dimensions of those 12 and over, largely thanks to a comfortable set-up that emphasizes looks and comfort for young riders. The KFX90 also has a simple and friendly 89cc four-stroke engine that provides compliant power delivery with a healthy mid-range, all while mated to a continuously variable transmission that eliminates the need for a shift lever. Dual front shocks and a swingarm rear suspension are also part of the ride package, helping make the ride more enjoyable by cushioning the rider against bumps.
Another important feature of the KFX90 is the keyed ignition switch, a set-up that prevents the use of the ATV without the key. This feature is important to parents who value the security of their child’s ATV. There’s also a throttle limiting screw and a CVT transmission speed limited that parents can use to ensure the safety of their kids when they’re riding the KFX90.
For those young kids that have an adventurous bone in their bodies, the Kawasaki KFX90 is an ideal ATV to take for all those thrill-seeking exploits.

The 2011 Kawasaki KFX 450R is an industry heavyweight, all thanks to its combination of unparalleled racing technology and the feel of natural power riders have on their fingertips.
Looking the part of a natural ATV, the KFX 450R comes with two-piece front and rear “lapped” fenders that make customization painless. In addition, it also has a headlight assembly that can be detached quickly for closed-course races, leaving no compromise as to the aggressive nature of the vehicle.
The Kawasaki KFX 450R shares the engine DNA of the KX 450F motorcross bike, so you can be sure that it’s primed and ready for action. Add the fact that it comes equipped with titanium valves, a highly responsive 32-bit digital fuel injection system that can translate four-stroke power into outstanding thrust, and an electric starter, and you have an ATV that just fits all of the requirements for a four-wheeled ride. To aid in distributing the power of the engine to all four wheels, the KFX 450R makes use of a five-speed transmission that includes a lightweight reverse gear system, allowing riders to quickly and easily extricate themselves from first turn chaos, trail bottlenecks, or any other on-track accidents.
As far as handling is concerned, ATVs are required to be all-world tough and the KFX 450R, with its lightweight all-aluminum frame, has both incredible stiffness and significant strength. It also boasts a low center of gravity and excellent roll resistance for higher corner speeds and race-level handling.
The front suspension design of the ATV makes use of long lower A-arms mounted to a single box-section lower frame tube, paired with dual-rate front springs for excellent rough-terrain handling. Meanwhile, the rear suspension features an adjustable shock with low- and high-speed compression and rebound damping adjustability mated to a cast aluminum swingarm, offering the ideal balance of flexibility and rigidity.
For those of you who like to spend time in the dirt, Kawasaki has improved the KFX 450R for the 2012 model year with a lightweight aluminum frame, long lower front A-arm suspension, and a fully adjustable rear shock. The ATV is on sale at a price of $8,099 and Kawasaki is offering the possibility to further customize the bike with a full line of Authentic Kawasaki Accessories.
The KFX 450R is powered by a 449 cc liquid-cooled, four-stroke, DOHC, four-valve single engine fitted with a highly responsive 32-bit digital fuel injection system that automatically compensates for temperature or altitude. The engine is combined with a lightweight reverse gear system integrated with its five-speed manual transmission.
For 2012, the model has also received a two-tone seat featuring a smooth top surface for excellent rider mobility and slip-resistant sides for good grip when hanging off in corners, specially designed rear wheels, wide front bumper, and two-piece "lapped" front and rear fenders.
