India Kawasaki has announced
the launch of MY19 KX250, KX450 and KLX450R in India. For over 40 years, KX
brand motocrosser has been extremely successful in putting riders on the top
step of the podium. The prices of KX250, KX450 and KLX450R are 7,43,000,
7,79,000, 8,49,000 respectively.
To maintain its edge in this
fiercely competitive class, the MY19 KX450 benefits from a new engine mounted
in its leanest chassis to date, enabling it to turn even quicker lap times, and
make it the most powerful machine in the paddock. Complementing its already
high performance, a number of new features – including finger-follower valve
actuation, electric start and a hydraulic clutch, which are all firsts for a
Kawasaki motocrosser – further elevate its race-winning potential.
While the KX450’s engine has
always been a strength, the KX250 has an easy to use high rpm range and
outstanding suspension. The MY19 KX450 gets even more powerful engine along
with electric start. Finger-follower valve enables larger-diameter valves and
more aggressive cams. Kawasaki’s first hydraulic clutch on a motocrosser offers
more direct feel and lighter lever action. In case of KLX450R, an LED rear
light has been fitted for the benefit of the distant competition along with
digital instrumentation which includes a speedometer, twin tripmeters, odometer
In the other notable changes,
the KX450 now has a new lightweight aluminium perimeter frame, which has
revised rigidity. While the addition of electric start and the return to a
coil-spring fork add weight, efforts were made to keep the weight gain to a
minimum. Matching the KX450’s increased power, increased front and rear
traction ensure the bike can put power to the ground and get around corners
quickly. A new front brake master cylinder offers better initial control, while
contributing to overall braking performance. All-new bodywork (except the front
fender and number plate) was designed to facilitate rider movement.
