 2012 Kawasaki KX85 View

2012 Kawasaki KX85 is a stylish motorbike with 85cc-class engine specifications. The level of technology, power and berm-busting capability packed into this 152-pound rocket ship is mind-boggling, and the way it can tear up a motocross track in an expert’s hands must be seen to be believed.

The KX85 comes with a black-painted, high-tensile steel perimeter frame with a specially designed fuel tank sitting inside the cage to keep the fuel load and, thus, the center of mass as low as possible for improved handling. All this is wrapped in lime green body panels, with lightweight black aluminum wheels and aggressive graphics.
