2013 Kawasaki KFX450R Review and specification

2013 Kawasaki KFX450R

Featuring a rigid and lightweight aluminum chassis, and a potent power plant based on the championship winning KX450F motocrosses, the 2013 Kawasaki KFX450R ATV is race ready. A highly responsive 32-bit digital fuel injection system automatically compensates for temperature and altitude. DFI translates the KFX four-stroke power into incredible thrust, with great torque in the low- and medium-rpm ranges.

The fast and reliable Kawasaki KFX450R also includes a lightweight reverse gear system integrated with its five-speed manual transmission. The 2013 Kawasaki KFX450R 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 Kawasaki KFX450R 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 adjust-ability is mated to a cast aluminum swing arm that offers the ideal balance of flexibility and rigidity. Regardless of track surfaces or conditions, this race-oriented chassis makes the Kawasaki KFX450R a potent weapon.

The Kawasaki 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 2013 Kawasaki KFX450R was designed to be on the track and winning races as quickly as possible.
