For those of you who like to spend time in the dirt, Kawasaki has improved the KFX 450R for the 2012 model year with a lightweight aluminum frame, long lower front A-arm suspension, and a fully adjustable rear shock. The ATV is on sale at a price of $8,099 and Kawasaki is offering the possibility to further customize the bike with a full line of Authentic Kawasaki Accessories.
The KFX 450R is powered by a 449 cc liquid-cooled, four-stroke, DOHC, four-valve single engine fitted with a highly responsive 32-bit digital fuel injection system that automatically compensates for temperature or altitude. The engine is combined with a lightweight reverse gear system integrated with its five-speed manual transmission.
For 2012, the model has also received a two-tone seat featuring a smooth top surface for excellent rider mobility and slip-resistant sides for good grip when hanging off in corners, specially designed rear wheels, wide front bumper, and two-piece "lapped" front and rear fenders.
