Kawasaki KX motocross bikes : More Details

Kawasaki’s KX motorcycles are dirt bikes that have been designed for track use only. As this bike is not to be used on the road, it misses out on mandatory features like headlights, brake lights, indicators and mirrors. In terms of design, the KX looks sleek and gets a tall front fender, fork gaiters, upswept tail and a highly located exhaust. Both the KX65 & KX112 are offered in a single colour – Lime Green.

The KX65 has been made with younger riders in mind. Hence it comes with a low 29.9-inch seat height. Both bike ride on tube-type wire spoke rims shod in knobby tyres.
