The smallest model in Kawasaki’s KX’s lineup was created especially for young, beginner riders, so it serves as a great platform for learning the secrets of off road riding.
It is powered by a compact 54cc, twin stroke engine with digital ignition. The engine transfers its power to the rear wheel through a smooth-shifting six-speed transmission and a manual clutch.
When building the KX65, Kawasaki’s engineers used a high tensile steel frame that helps the rider get first class handling performances thanks to its exceptional torsional rigidity. It is also worthy of being mentioned that the engine and chassis bolts feature rust-resistant coating for more durability.
The stiff frame is combined with an adjustable front fork and a Uni Trak rear suspension with a nitrogen charged shock.
The 2014 Kawasaki KX 65 is offered with a base price of $3.699.
