Kawasaki KX85 Review

We did 1 day test with Kawasaki KX85 to determine how it became the best motocross bikes in its class. KX85 is obviously packed with features and enhancements which made it the ideal off road adventure and competition. 1. Fork. We are 120 lbs. While on the raceway we felt the 36mm Kayaba Fork and chose the standard setting in the fork spring but adjustments can be made for heavier riders. Its surprisingly impressive especially when the fork soaked up hard landings. 2. Motor. KX85 has responsive engine, crisp throttle feedback when approaching corners with mid-range pull on the bike. We did not encounter difficulties in rolling to corners and getting over the obstacles. 3. Handling. The bike has precise handling and it becomes even better when going through tight corners. Overall it was easy to pass on corners, change track directions and rides comfortably. 4. Adjustable shock and bar. We follow the standard settings for the shock and successfully managed to hit edges and corners without any problem. Adjusting the bar position is a cool feature of KX85 because it helped us in determining the most comfortable position. 5. Looks. Designed for raceway, KX85 looks sporty in the combination of lime green and while – signature color of Kawasaki. Add some racing graphics to spice up its appearance. To make the long story short, Kawasaki KX85 is developed to rule a competition. It is a learning dirt bike for beginners and much more appropriate to adolescents. This bike makes riders confident and prowess, given that its a ready-to-compete machine.
