Kawasaki Releases the Brand New 2018 Line Up of KLX and KXF Models

No matter if you're a beginner looking to get into riding trails, an amateur motocross racer, or even an AMA pro, the newly revised line of 2018 KXF and KLX bikes, by Kawasaki, are guaranteed to perform. Kawasaki has been a long standing name of quality and performance in the industry, having supported big name professional riders like Adam Cianciarulo, Ryan Villopoto, and even James Stewart. It goes untold that Kawasaki has had an abundance of rider feedback, professional testing, and research to ensure that the 2018 line will be a cut above the competition.

The bike seeing the most changes is the KX250F. Transworld Motocross reported that the 2018 model will see improvements in: Power and toque by introducing:
  1. A new throttle body and injector angle
  2. A new fuel pump that is increased in pressure capabilities
  3. A redesigned intake boot

The KX250F's big brother, the KX450F is also set to see some improvements. The bike has a proven record of success, so changes made on the 450 were more subtle, and only to enhance the riding experience of the bike, not change it. Motocross Action Magazine cited a few of the improvements such as:

  1. A new resonance chamber to enhance low RPM power
  2. Weight reduction by using a completely steel-free air-box design
  3. Better airflow by improved air-box and intake shape under the seat
  4. Usage of lighter weight gears in the transmission to reduce rotational weight,durability, and shifting response.
  5. Engine refinements such as the new 36MM titanium valves, an 8.5MM cylinder offset to reduce mechanical friction, and a bridged-box piston design featuring an 12:8:1 compression ratio.
All of these updates are going to enhance the performance of the new 2018 KX450F, while maintaining the competitive price point of _$8,849_ . Motocross Action Magazine KX450F Write-Up
