Launching into the 2022 season, Kawasaki has released a brand new line up of eight off road machines across a range of different sizes and disciplines.

The addictive world of off road riding remains covered with the compact four stroke KLX110 machines, with its semi-auto gearbox, kick and electric start option, and a newbie friendly adjustable throttle stop.

For those after more of a competition, the KX65 provides a sturdy easy to maintain motorcycle in the Kawasaki pack, alongside the KX85 as the “next bike” for many young fast and growing riders. Both the KX85 small wheel and big wheel models benefitted recently from upgrades amongst which are re designed radiator shrouds, creating a distinct synergy with the adult KX models, which delivers increased cooling air flow to the radiator of the water cooled two stroke paddock favourite.

Moving up the range, there are two offerings, one the KX250X Enduro/Trail machine with its refocused suspension settings, bash plate, electric start and side stand that benefits greatly from its sibling, the KX250. Inheriting much of its enhanced specification from its larger capacity stablemate, the KX250X has a KX450 type frame and swinging arm, and also the same hydraulic clutch set up as the 450 and the useful integration of Ninja superbike technology in the valve train allowing more consistent high rev performance and a increased lift capacity for the camshafts.

At the top of the scale, the green team will offer an impressive two machine range in 2022 with the KX450X and the KX450. Offering an Enduro/Trial targeted machine in the KX450X and the race and championship winning potential of the awesome KX450, the complete eight model 2022 range has both stamina and depth, and is sure to strike a chord with fans young and old.

The KX65, KLX110, KX450 and KX450X will be arriving in the UK in June, the KX250X will be available in July, followed by the KX250 and KX85 following on in August and October.
