Compact Sport ATV Matches Growing Riders of all Skill Levels

New styling for 2015 was inspired by Kawasaki’s racing heritage. The Lime Green bodywork features bold graphics, while the wheels and grab bar are finished in black. The suspension springs are Lime Green and there are reflective "headlight" decals up front.

The amount of power put out by the KFX90’s environmentally friendly four-stroke 89cc engine is optimal for riders’ growing size and skill set. With a wide mid-range powerband delivering plenty of usable torque, dual front shocks and a single-shock rear suspension to make the handling more enjoyable, young riders will find it easier to ride along with the adults. Thanks to the durable continuously variable transmission, the need to shift gears is eliminated for new riders, allowing them more time to focus on honing their riding technique.

Parents can relax in knowing that the KFX90’s ignition switch prevents unauthorized use without the key. Even after parents hand over the key, they can still exercise control over the KFX90’s available performance via the throttle limiting screw and removable CVT speed-limiting collar. Such intelligent features allow the ATV’s maximum speed to be tuned to match a rider’s ability. These precautions are unsurprising since many Kawasaki engineers are also parents themselves. The KFX90 is also equipped with premium features like electric starting, a single-shock rear suspension, independent A-arm front suspension, and a single rear disc brake, supplemented by dual front drum brakes.
