Kawasaki YOUTH KFX 50 2023 receives a sleek new cowl hood design, which isn't always functional but does distribute a little more air across the air-cooled engine and through the chassis. The redesigned hood has plenty of room to install number decals for the most recent motocross competitors. The racer style is finished with a handlebar pad bearing the Kawasaki logo.
Although the footwells are made of plastic, there is a lot of steel tubing underneath to protect the legs and feet. In true sport quad fashion, the rear sprocket and rear disc brake are shielded by a composite skid plate. The tread is sufficiently aggressive to provide plenty of uphill bite, but not too harsh to put children at risk of injury. All four tyres and rims are the same size.
The KFX50 was designed with beginner and young riders (6 and above) in mind. Therefore, the KFX50's most crucial standard features give parents some safety controls as their kids begin to ride. A throttle limiter screw is included with the thumb throttle to allow for fine-tuning of acceleration and speed.
When the limiter is completely turned out, the KFX50 can travel at a top speed of approximately 15 mph. By tightening the locknut that is provided and rotating the throttle limitation screw, speed can be reduced to a crawl. There is no neutral or reverse on the single-speed transmission; it can only go forward. Electric start is standard, and the forthcoming ride section will examine some cold-starting concerns with prior KFX50 versions.
