2012 Kawasaki KFX 90

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.
