2011 KAWASAKI KFX450R

 
(12/16/2010)
2011 KAWASAKI KFX450R


This Kawasaki did well in Dirt Wheels testing during 2010. It won our 450 cross-country shootout and then came back to win a modified motocross comparison. The KFX450R is a sport machine like none of the other 450s simply because it has reverse. That makes it a good cross-platform ATV that can deal with both track and trail.
