2013 Kawasaki KX 85

Intro

The 2013 Kawasaki KX line is a group of models with a hard-hitting, quick motor that works best when short-shifted all the way through. The throttle is flat and seamless, making for a smooth ride when you’re hitting jumps and buzzing your way up hills. In addition, the upgraded front forks provide a more progressive dampening and improved rigidity. There’s also a new swingarm featuring a longer cast front section, as well as tapered hydroformed spars.

An improved intake tract has straightened more than ever, creating a more direct airflow, and a revised piston profile provides better durability. A shorter stainless steel headpipe with resonator chamber adds more low-RPM kick creating a smoother ride through the redline. These bikes are durable and made for riders who want to explore their way through the tracks and canyons.
