If you’re looking for a championship-caliber sports bike, look no further than the Kawasaki KX65. At the heart of the Kawasaki KX65 is a powerful two-stroke engine, a lightweight chassis, disc brakes, and long travel suspension to bring the strong power that enables you to compete and even win whatever race you decide to enter.
The KX65’s liquid-cooled, 64cc engine is able to bring an impressive level of power for its small displacement while the smooth-shifting transmission and manual clutch controls the transfer of that power into the ground. Furthermore, the KX65 comes with a semi-double-cradle steel frame that has been fitted with Kawasaki’s legendary Uni-Trak linkage system, allowing it to change power on the rear shock as the suspension is compressed.
As far as handling is concerned, the KX65 comes with both shock and fork four-way adjustable rebound damping. Meanwhile, the lightweight black aluminum rims lessen the unsprung weight to enhance the suspension action bring the same impressive look as the rims on the larger KX models. Both wheels are then fitted with hydraulic disc brakes to ensure great stopping power.

Tomorrow’s champions can start winning today on their first Kawasaki crosser – a fully featured competition machine.
The KX65 is an excellent platform for developing and honing racing skills with its liquid-cooled, high-performance engine, full-race chassis, long-travel suspension and disc brakes. The lime green and black graphics complement the black frame and black colored lightweight aluminum wheels.
Even the smallest KX has dual disc brakes to demonstrate the power of effective braking to new riders in Kawasaki’s smallest motocrosser. Remember, championship winners start here.

Industry-leading amateur racing support through Team Green™
64cc Two-stroke Engine
Digital ignition offers ideal timing for optimal throttle response throughout the rev range
Ignition rotor features rare-earth magnets, making it smaller, lighter and more durable. Its low inertial moment improves low-rpm response
High capacity ignition coil delivers a higher secondary voltage for a hotter spark, and the punchier response improves acceleration
Connecting rod big-end bearing features a cage for added durability
Primary gear is secured using a lock-nut to help reduce mechanical noise
The oil seal of the left crankcase has a stopper for increased engine reliability
Metafoam gaskets are used for the generator cover, water pump cover and water pump elbow for improved sealing
Silver clutch and ignition covers resist the signs of boot rub to help keep the KX looking fresh, longer
Advanced exhaust and transfer ports increase power and performance at higher rpm
Bridge between exhaust ports is machined for increased reliability and resistance to wear and seizure
Lightweight cylinder liner transfers heat efficiently for cooler running
Large radiator provides more consistent engine temperatures, keeping power output strong throughout the moto
Cooling system offers greater reliability and less engine wear
24mm Mikuni Carburetor
Feeds a four-petal reed valve for excellent throttle response
Allows the engine to produce more power and torque at all rpm
Positive action and rugged durability
Hard chrome-finished shift-fork ends resist wear
Manual clutch mechanism mirrors larger KX models
Clutch cover gasket made of metal-carbon composite material
High-tensile Steel Frame
Exceptional torsional rigidity for excellent handling
Reinforced downtube adds strength and durability
Engine and chassis bolts feature rust-resistant coating
Four-position rebound-damping adjustment accommodates different riding styles and terrain
Uni-Trak Rear Suspension
Rising-rate action allows a more controlled ride as the suspension compresses
Four-way adjustable rebound damping offers a variety of settings for various track conditions
