The 2021 Kawasaki KX 85: An Amateur Motocross Bike For The Young Rider

The 2021 Kawasaki KX 85 is the Japanese company’s official race bike for the amateur 85cc competition class. Featuring an 84cc liquid cooled two stroke single, it is intended to provide the grunt and power to be able to send the bike leaping and hopping over hills and whoops without issue.

For this reason, Kawasaki slams as much technology from their professional motocross race teams into the tiny bike. A full kick-start, manual six speed transmission, front and rear competition disc brakes, and fully adjustable suspension front and rear help set the bike up for races. The swingarm and rear subframe are removable for repairs, and the main frame is built as a perimeter frame for the most strength possible.

The 2021 Kawasaki KX 85 starts at $4,399 USD / $5,099 CAD.
