FEATURES

POWERFUL ENGINE

Delivering strong, responsive power, the engine of the KX450 motorcycle features a finger-follower valve train. Crafted with the same design used by Kawasaki factory race teams, the 449cc engine produces broad torque and strong power across the entire rev range.

ERGONOMICS

Find your best performance with the Kawasaki ERGO-FIT advantage. Four handlebar positions and two footpeg positions allow you to tailor the KX450 motorcycle to your body size, riding style and preference. Wide footpegs ensure excellent grip for optimum comfort and control. The seat uses a slip-resistant top surface for good grip when seated and smooth sides for excellent rider mobility.

LIGHTWEIGHT ALUMINIUM PERIMETER FRAME

An evolution of the current design, the new frame features revised rigidity and includes the engine as a stressed member. A new swingarm also contributes to the revised rigidity balance and increased rear traction.

ELECTRIC START & HYDRAULIC CLUTCH

Conserve energy and ride smarter with an electric start and hydraulic clutch. A lithium-ion battery ensures strong and reliable starting performance, eliminating the need for a backup kickstarter. The hydraulic clutch offers a direct feel and consistent actuation even as engine temperatures rise while also offering a light pull at the lever.

STRONGER BRAKES

The most advanced KX450 yet features stopping power to match its incredible acceleration capability. Up front, an oversized 270mm Braking petal disc with dual-piston caliper offers sharp response and a strong, consistent feel. In the rear, a large-diameter 250mm Braking petal disc complements the front for race-ready performance.

RACE READY SUSPENSION

49mm Showa Coil Spring Front Fork combined with A-KIT Technology deliver superb suspension and handling. Large-diameter inner tubes allow the use of large damping pistons for race-winning performance while a large-diameter front axle improves front-wheel traction. The Uni-Trak rear suspension system ensures optimal rear-wheel traction.
