Since its debut, the KX65 has established itself as the entry-level machine for young riders who hold aspirations of becoming tomorrow’s MX champions.
The first years in a young rider’s career are marked by the steady acquisition of riding skills.
As one of the top mini-motocrossers in its class, the KX65 provides the potential for early racing success.
With a high-performing, liquid cooled 64cc engine, the KX65 delivers the kind of high-end punch that you’d expect from a green machine, yet also aims to deliver strong low and mid-range performance with a wide, manageable powerband.
Long travel suspension and front and rear disc brakes undoubtedly make the KX65 one of the best equipped bikes in its category; the chassis and engine performance mean the KX65 can be ridden harder and faster by more experienced riders and can also accommodate a wider size and weight range of young racers.
Slick-shifting 6-speed manual transmission features motocross ratios. Needle bearings on the clutch actuating mechanism (release shaft) and a roller at the shift position lever allow quick, smooth shifting and light operation, ideal for those youngsters moving up from clutch-less bikes.
