Kawasaki KX85

In 2010, they’ll be experiencing an even stronger bang as there has been some retuning done to the exhaust in order for it to let the engine breath freely at any rpm range. Also, a Kawasaki feature and one that doesn’t miss on the KX85 is the Kawasaki Integrated power-valve system. Now the engine could be mated to the six-speed gearbox and get the best out of it.

Kawasaki KX85 has easily provided the new small motocrosser with a racing powerplant as it inspired on its bigger siblings. It did the same with the high-tensile steel perimeter frame that allows the gas tank to be positioned well down into the frame. This resulted in a lower center of gravity and more confidence inspired to an uninitiated rider.

Next on the revision plan were the suspensions. These units have a dreadfully important role on keeping the bike in control through corners and stable at higher speeds. Sorting that out on the new KX85 is the compression damping adjustable 36mm inverted cartridge front fork and the fully-adjustable UNI-TRAK rear suspension.
