There are a couple different models of the KLX including the KLX 110, KLX 140, the slightly longer KLX140L, and the more powerful KLX 450R. The push button electric start is one of the key features of the 2008 Kawasaki KLX. The simple ease of starting the bike with the push of button allows the inexperienced rider to gain the confidence they need to hone in on their riding skills. Once the child gets used to riding and enhances their skills there is also a kick start lever so the rider will have the option to start the bike however they choose. The kick start also acts as back up starting device in the event the electronic kick start fails. To help make the 2008 Kawasaki even more beginner-friendly, the bike is equipped with an automatic clutch system. This is a no clutch shifting system designed to help the inexperienced rider learn how to ride without worrying about having to shift. Parents will also appreciate the parental controls that are featured with the bike. These options allow for control of the throttle speed and a safety feature that allows the bike to only start when it is in neutral. Comfort, control, and manageable power help to make this bike a reliable choice for both the inexperienced and experienced rider.
