Track-ready Sport ATV Dominates On the Trail

Whether you’re competing for a trophy or just bragging rights with your buddies, the KFX®450R is the sport ATV to put you on top. Its nimble chassis and long A-arm front suspension are complemented by a powerful engine with digital fuel injection (DFI®) and a compact electric starter, for precise throttle response and easy starting.

Featuring a rigid and lightweight aluminum chassis, and a potent powerplant based on the championship winning KX™450F motocrosser, the KFX450R ATV is race ready. A highly responsive 32-bit digital fuel injection system automatically compensates for temperature and altitude. DFI translates the KFX’s four-stroke power into incredible thrust, with great torque in the low- and medium-rpm ranges.

The fast and reliable KFX450R also includes a lightweight reverse gear system integrated with its five-speed manual transmission. The KFX450R’s reverse gear allows riders to quickly and easily extricate themselves from first turn chaos, trail bottlenecks or any other on-track incident, using the normal shift lever, plus a convenient handlebar mounted lock-out lever.

Built to handle tough trail conditions and win races, the KFX450R’s lightweight all-aluminum frame has both incredible stiffness and significant strength. The high-tech chassis also provides a low center of gravity to minimize weight transfer during cornering, for higher corner speeds and race-level handling.

The front suspension design utilizes long lower A-arms mounted to a single box-section lower frame tube, paired with dual-rate front springs for excellent rough-terrain handling. In the rear, an adjustable shock with low- and high-speed compression and rebound damping adjustability is mated to a cast aluminum swingarm that offers the ideal balance of flexibility and rigidity. Regardless of track surfaces or conditions, this race-oriented chassis makes the KFX450R a potent weapon.

The KFX450R is easy to work on, so owners can spend more time in the dirt than in the garage. The two-piece front and rear “lapped” fenders make it easier to customize the size of the fenders or quickly replace damaged sections. Even the headlight assembly is quickly detachable for closed-course races – this ATV looks just as aggressive with or without headlights. These features leave little doubt that the KFX450R was designed to be on the track and winning races as quickly as possible.

Owners can customize their KFX450R using a full line of Genuine Kawasaki Accessories from their local authorized Kawasaki dealer.

As with all off-highway vehicle recreation, Kawasaki encourages ATV riders to ride responsibly and to respect the environment. Kawasaki will pay first-time buyers of a new Kawasaki ATV $100 for completing an ATV rider safety course conducted by the ATV Safety Institute (ASI). Interested consumers can call ASI toll-free at 800-887-2887.
