Kawasaki offers its own, unique solution to the translation from mini bikes to full-sized motocross machines: the KX100! With its 99cc engine and larger wheels, it is the purest blend of both worlds and it is not afraid showing it out on the track. Performance, handling and balance is what Kawasaki aimed at when created the new mid-sized motocross ride so it should receive great recognition for it.
Kawasaki has made quite an entry with the all-new KX250F two years ago, but with the stiff competition encountered on the motocross track, a radical new approach had to be made towards this bike. The recipe is the same as in the case of its bigger sibling, the KX450F: a lightened engine that pulls stronger finds its place on the refined chassis. The look is also refreshed so Kawasaki’s out with the best against its competitors.
Kawasaki carefully planned the radical revision that implies all of its motocross models, with the KX450F being a top priority. It is the first new model to be launched after the bike’s introduction and it is definitely the best of Kawasaki so far. Especially redesigned to better deal with the track’s demands and the continuously advancing competition, the 2009 Kawasaki KX450F reaches the highest levels of performance and refinement, leaving us craving for one.
A week ago we announced the launch of Yamaha’s dirt and trail bikes, something that apparently determined Kawasaki to step up and offer the best it can, under the name of KX.
Pilots can now start training for the two most important classes in the AMA Championships and it is terrible important for them to do so as the bikes are completely revised and will perform with even more brilliancy out where it all depends on speed, balance, weight and sharpness.
We also mentioned about a few Yamaha models the fact that they have pretty much no competition as the other 2009’s weren’t on the scene yet so we would have to take that back.
Purely designed for racing, the KX450F and KX250F make the most important entry after their launch a few years back and we must take them in consideration and give them the credit they need. Reshaped, restyled and reengineered, these two will be on the scene for a long time, and it is always good to start with the right foot even with each revision, not necessarily brand new introductions.
