Kawasaki 2021 KX450

Electric Start

Being able to restart an engine quickly after a spill can mean the difference between keeping your lead, or having to fight your way back through the pack.
 
Hydraulic Clutch
 
Kawasaki’s first hydraulic clutch on a motocrosser offers more direct feel and lighter lever action.
 
Light Weight & Light, Nimble Handling
 
Complementing the powerful engine, light, nimble handling contributes to the KX450’s quick lap times. 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. The result is the KX450’s leanest chassis to date, and a highly-competitive, low overall weight of only 110.0 kg – a gain of only 1.3 kg.
 
Setting-adjustable motocross ECU
 
Lightweight ECU was designed specifically to withstand the rigors of motocross racing. ECU contains three engine maps (plus a fourth for Launch Control Mode). Settings for the three maps can be reprogrammed with the optional KX FI Calibration Kit.
 
KX FI Calibration Kit (Accessory)
 
KX FI Calibration Controller, a portable handheld calibration tool, enables riders to make changes to engine maps by plugging into the ECU without needing a PC or battery. Comes equipped with seven preset map settings.
 
Renthal Fatbar
 
A factory-style ø28.6 mm Renthal aluminium Fatbar, a popular aftermarket part, is now a standard feature.
