One of the industry leaders in high quality performance products, Ride Engineering has this week been showing off their modified Kawasaki KX450F project bike. And it looks a peach of a dirt bike.
Ride Engineering’s goal was to make this bike turn in like their 2015 CRF450 (see second video below). Stock, the 2016’s handling is improved over the previous generations but it still has a hinged, top heavy feel that inherently says ‘Kawasaki’.
Their new green machine was outfitted with Ride Engineering’s products and combined with other accessories from FMF, Bridgestone, SDG, Think, Motostuff, ProTaper and Renthal to make it easier to turn, lighter (227lbs) and snappier than the showroom model. Factory Connection suspension also allowed US national pro and test rider Sean Lipanovich to glide over the bumps on the redesigned Milestone Motocross track. To view the full build and learn how to improve your own KXF’s performance package take a look at their website here.
