2023 Kawasaki KX 450X
GET THE OFF-ROAD EDGE
When it comes to KX™ motorcycles, winning runs in the family. The KX™450X motorcycle is powered by technology that hails from a legacy of champions and tuned to take on the toughest terrain. Get the off-road edge on the bike built to ride ahead of the rest.
- TAKE ON TOUGH TRAILS: The KX™450X motorcycle is built to meet the tough demands of cross-country racing. Cross-country wheels (F21"/ R18") are paired with specific Dunlop Geomax AT81 tires developed for GNCC racing. A factory-style skid plate and a convenient side stand both come as standard equipment.
- GET THE PERFECT FIT: Slim ergonomics stem from a narrow frame and minimalist bodywork. To help facilitate the perfect fit, the KX™450X motorcycle features ERGO-FIT® adjustability. Four handlebar positions and two footpeg positions allow you to tailor the KX450X to your body size, riding style and preference.
KX™ CHASSIS PERFORMANCE
- GAIN FULL CONTROL: Light and nimble handling is achieved thanks to the lean, lightweight chassis of the legendary KX™450 motocross bike. A well-balanced aluminum perimeter frame helps keep the overall weight down and allows for slim ergonomics. The high-performance, race-ready suspension has been optimized for cross-country racing, especially on aggressive trails. Large-diameter brakes deliver strong stopping power, offering a high level of control.
KX™ ENGINE PERFORMANCE
- POWER AHEAD: The same championship-proven engine performance found in KX™ motocross bikes is what propels the KX™450X motorcycle. This fuel-injected 449cc 4-stroke engine delivers the type of hard-hitting power and a flat torque curve that encourages quick acceleration. Engine maps are optimized for cross-country racing, delivering the ideal amount of useable power. Electric start makes starting the engine as easy as a push of a button. A coned disc-spring hydraulic clutch offers a direct feel, light lever action, and consistent performance.
