Based on the highly advanced Kawasaki KX450, this cross-country motorcycle has received specific cross-country tuning that encompasses the engine, suspension, brakes, wheel size, gearing, enduro tyres, side stands and skid plates, making the KX450X more attractive for cross-country competitors.
Slim, Ergonomic Bodywork
The narrow frame and minimalistic bodywork offer a slim riding position that facilitates control.
High-performance suspension comes directly from the KX450. Spring rates and damping settings optimised for the XC scene offer increased feedback, especially when riding on aggressive trails.
DFI Setting Data Selection
Adjusting engine settings to suit conditions is simple with the KX-style DFI couplers. Plug-and-play style system is quick, easy and stress-free.
Essential XC Equipment
KX factory-style skid plate and a convenient side stand are both standard equipment.
XC Wheels and Tyres
F21”/R18” wheels and enduro-type tyres are well-suited to the situations encountered in XC riding.
Lightweight Aluminium Perimeter Frame
Well-balanced frame from the KX450 contributes to the KX450X’s light weight, light handling, and slim ergonomics.
Like the KX450, a hydraulic clutch offers direct feel and light lever action. Less play as the clutch heats up during heavy use results in more consistent feeling.
KX FI Calibration Kit (Accessory)
The KX FI Calibration Kit features the handheld KX FI Calibration Controller, which enables riders to adjust engine characteristics (by rewriting actual data maps) to suit their preference. This convenient tool can be used without a PC, simply by plugging into the engine’s ECU.
Electric start makes restarting the engine as easy as pushing a button.
A choice of four handlebar positions and two footpeg positions allows riders to tailor their riding position to suit body size and preference.
KX450 brake package optimised for XC riding delivers strong stopping power and a high level of control.
Launch Control Mode
Getting ahead of your rivals early means not having to work your way through the pack later on. Kawasaki’s factory-style Launch Control Mode is standard equipment that gives riders an edge when they line up at the start.
