Compact Sport ATV Matches Growing Riders of all Skill Levels

For riders age 12 and over who have outgrown their 50cc ATV or are just beginning to enjoy the trails with mom and dad, the 2014 KFX®90 offers the perfect mix of strength and safety. With a fully automatic transmission that is easy to operate and start via an electronic push-button ignition, full suspension and styling inspired by its race-oriented big brother, the KFX90 is the ideal machine to nurture riders’ abilities on the track or in the woods. Family-friendly features including full floorboards to protect riders’ feet and parental controls to limit top speed will keep parents smiling almost as much as their kids.

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 once the homework is done, 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. Perhaps this safety focus is unsurprising, as many Kawasaki engineers are also parents themselves.
