Kawasaki Announces Updated 2023 KFX50 and KFX90 Youth ATV Models
Thanks to styling cues taken from Kawasaki’s KX™ motocross lineup, the KFX50 and KFX90 incorporate a sporty and aggressive look that stands out from the competition and ensures they are instantly recognizable as a Kawasaki.
These ATVs have a number of features aimed at helping young riders gain four-wheel riding experience with proportionate size and power and serve as an introductory step into a lifetime of enjoying
MORE AGGRESSIVE STYLING
The new styling includes a center cover that features a more aggressive slant, which contributes to sharper styling found on both the KFX50 and KFX90. A slit in the center cover adds to the sporty image, while the white number plate-style design evokes a strong KX-style motocross image. The grill shape has also been updated, further contributing to the sharper design. A taller design of the front fenders adds to both the aggressive design and conveys a strong off-road performance look.
Replacing the previous decals are all-new LED accent lights that offer an enhanced new look and make the ATVs easier to spot while the rider is off in the distance exploring. An LED taillight replaces the previous halogen light bulb and presents a modern touch to the refreshed styling. Finishing off the strong Kawasaki image is a handlebar pad featuring the Kawasaki logo and KX-style decals that contribute to the aggressive styling.
INCREASED MUD PROTECTION
In order to increase mud protection, the front wheel wells now have a larger panel area that is designed to help keep dirt and debris from building up near the engine. This improved mud protection keeps the engine running at a cooler temperature for optimal performance and increases rider comfort.
Both the KFX50 and KFX90 received a revised floorboard design, contributing to increased grip that helps young riders control their ATV when riding while in a standing position.
The 2023 KFX®50 ATV for ages six and older is the starting place for many first-time ATV riders. Featuring a 49.5cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder, four-stroke engine that delivers smooth power, predictable performance and rock-solid reliability, and special parental controls include a keyed ignition to help address unsupervised starting as well as speed controls with a throttle-limiting screw to restrict throttle movement. The KFX50 ATV packs a lot of fun into a small package.
The KFX®90 lets riders ages 10 and older take on tougher tracks and bigger adventures with an air-cooled 89cc single-cylinder, four-stroke. Special parental controls include a keyed ignition to help address unsupervised starting as well as speed controls with a throttle-limiting screw to restrict throttle movement, and a collar in the CVT transmission that can be removed to increase speed as the rider gains experience, allowing the KFX90 to grow with the rider.
