New Kawasaki ATV's for Kids are Good as Green
2007 Kawasaki KFX 50 and KFX 90
Kawasaki hits the ground running with the launch of their new youth ATV's for 2007. The KFX 50 and KFX 90 come to the market at a time when quality and value are key factors. With many new features like electric start, disc brakes, four-stroke reliability, and safety features like ignition-cutoff tether and keyed ignition—parents are sure to be thrilled about the new Kawasaki line-up.
We had the opportunity to come out to a Kawasaki event where they showcased these new quads. It was a full day of testing and riding the Kawasaki KFX 50 and KFX 90. With several youth riders on hand, the kids put these KFX’s to the test. There was a track set up with jumps, tight turns, and mini berms. The kids loved every minute of it.
The KFX 50 is an entry level quad powered by a 49cc air-cooled four-stroke overhead-cam engine. Its smooth power band makes it ideal for beginner riders. Long gone are the days of having to fire-up your motorcycle with a pull start; these bad boys have electric start.
When it’s time to get on the road, beginning riders don’t have to worry about shifting gears. The continuously variable automatic transmission takes care of all the thinking. This allows young riders to concentrate on other things, like keeping their eyes on the road.
The KFX 90 is the big brother to the KFX 50. At first glance you would think they are the same quad, but soon you realize it’s not. The KFX 90 sits higher and has a wider stance. It is powered by an 89cc air-cooled four-stroke engine. This quad is geared towards riders 12 years and older. With great handling and stability, this Kawasaki quad makes a great platform for riding on either track or trail.
During our test time, several kids said how fun the new KFX quads from Kawasaki were. One went as far as saying, “I’m in LOVE.” So if you are in the market for an ATV for your kid, make sure to stop by your local Kawasaki dealer and check out the new KFX 50 and KFX 90.
