This bike is way worth it. This bike is very quick. It is comparable to the speed of a 400ex or Yamaha Warrior. It can keep up with the 250F and 450F riders through the whoops and is awesome for kids wanting to upgrade from an 85, but not ready for the 125. I was very impressed with the handling and how easily it jumped. This is just an awesome bike overall.
If you are on a four stroke and are looking to move on up to a two stroke, this is what you want. It is very fast and is perfect for the track or trail. I strongly request this bike for anyone who is looking for quality in a racing dirt bike! It’s a real easy bike to handle, the power band is very smooth, not as much hit as the other bikes but I still like it, it’s very easy to control. Great bike, Kawasaki.
Once riders outgrow the mini ranks, they are often forced to leap straight to a full-on Lites-class motorcycle. Providing a seamless continuity from the mini ranks to the full-size classes is the Kawasaki KX™100 motorcycle. With its larger wheels, and tires, the KX100 provides adolescent racers with an appropriately-sized machine, allowing them to focus on riding technique instead of on controlling excessive power.
The KX100’s bigger 99cc liquid-cooled, two-stroke engine breathes through a 28mm carburetor with a carbon-fiber intake reed valve to aid throttle response and is fitted with the Kawasaki Integrated Power Valve System (KIPS®) that helps produce a broad powerband with good low-end torque and top-end power. The engine is mated to a smooth-shifting six-speed transmission, which gives the KX100 a gear for every situation on the race track.
The engine is bolted into a high-tensile steel perimeter frame that has a specially designed gas tank to lower the fuel load, which lowers the center of gravity for improved handling. Adjustable long-travel suspension at both ends helps to smooth even the roughest motocross courses. The 36mm inverted cartridge fork has compression damping adjustment capability and the UNI-TRAK rear suspension system comes equipped with a shock that is fully adjustable for spring preload, compression and rebound damping. In the braking department, both front and rear discs are mounted with shoulder bolts for easier maintenance.
The KX100 also features aggressive Kawasaki Lime Green and Black graphics just like larger KX models.
Those who race their KX100 at designated events are eligible to receive support from Team Green™, Kawasaki’s amateur racing support program. Each year, Team
Green provides regional support vehicles and highly trained technicians at more than 100 events, offering technical information and assistance to those who race Kawasaki products. Kawasaki also offers a comprehensive contingency program for amateur and professional riders who place well at designated events.
