The KLX450R is Kawasaki's capable big-bore 4 stroke off-road Enduro model. The easy to handle, rider friendly, road registerable, learner legal, trail explorer, enduro racing KX derived motorcycle that has stump-pulling low down torque. Electric start and performance components combine to deliver a fast and usable total package built for the off-road.
A lightweight, highly reliable electric start system is employed for fast, easy, trouble-free starting. A manual kick starter is retained as a backup. Having both electric and kick starter means the bike can be quickly restarted if the engine stalls or has to be stopped.
The Kayaba AOS (Air-Oil-Separate) inverted fork from the KX450F offers superb damping and steering precision. Oil and air are kept in separate chambers for stable damping performance
The Uni-Trak rear suspension system mounts the suspension arm below the swingarm for a longer stroke. The rear shock features dual compression adjustability, allowing high-speed and low-speed damping to be tuned separately.
The KLX450R's gear ratios have been selected to specifically suit off-road riding. The engine is tuned for a broad delivery of power to optimize the gear ratios. The gear sets and centre cases are very compact allowing the frame to be narrower at the rider‘s ankles.
Petal brake discs front and rear reduce unsprung weight, and help clean the brake pads for more efficient braking. The forged aluminium rear brake pedal has a heavy duty mounting bolt and a large “foot” with sharp teeth to provide a solid feel. An integrated rear brake fluid reservoir provides increased reliability.
Equipped for off road competition the KLX450R instrument panel lets the rider see what the bike is doing....right now. This lightweight digital instrumentation includes a speedometer, twin tripmeters, odometer, clock and warning lights.
