KAWASAKI STRONG

With 130 years of Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. (KHI) engineering building the heaviest, most durable and complex machines on the planet, Kawasaki Strong is a name we can claim. KHI builds tunnel-boring machines that connect continents and trains that carry millions of New Yorkers in and out of the city 24-hours a day, 7-days a week. From these engineering monsters to the last bolt on the KX

450F,

KHI engineering says, over and over: Use me. Rely on me. I’m built to win.

BULLET TRAINS

You already know KHI builds machines that move people. But, did you know it also builds machines that move thousands of people—all at once? We’re talking trains here. From New York City subway cars to Japan’s hyper-speed bullet trains, Kawasaki has been in the business since 1906. Whether a

186-mph bullet train or a 1,441cc Ninja ® ZX ™ 14R motorcycle, KHI likes to believe that the technology that goes into moving thousands of people has a positive effect on how it goes about moving just one.

MOTORCYCLE ENGINES

Since KHI built its first motorcycle engine in 1953, it has never stopped pushing technology to arm riders with what they need to dominate the streets.

Advanced engineering, exhaustive testing, and tireless passion go into every motorcycle every time rubber hits the road. From industry-first features to the features that have evolved over a long history,

KHI’s innovations will never stop feeding the insatiable appetites of riders around the world.

ROBOTICS

If robots are the future, then KHI has been shaping it since 1969 when the company built its first industrial robot. KHI continues to be a leader in the development of robots for a diverse number of processes including: assembly, handling, welding, painting and sealing.

Kawasaki robot technology is being used every day to manufacture motorcycles and other products.

THE BIKE THAT

BUILDS CHAMPIONS

True glory is a podium finish on a Saturday afternoon. Dreams begin and end at the finish line and champions are crowned after skyward whips into Motocross history. For 35 years, Kawasaki Team Green

has supported these champions and helped them grow from the amateur ranks to the pros. Some of the most iconic champions in Motocross have reached their first wins with Team Green, from Jeremy

McGrath in 1989 to Ryan Villopoto, who dominated aboard a KX

to claim championships for four consecutive years (2011-2014).

With an industry-leading, all-ages amateur program that has unmatchable trackside assistance at more than 44 local, regional and national amateur Motocross events across the country, as well as online “factory” support, Kawasaki has made a tradition of backing legends, all astride the evolving and always improving KX. For more than 40 years, the KX has been ridden to 32 AMA Pro Motocross and Supercross championships, more than any other manufacturer; nine titles in the past seven years alone thanks to Ryan Villopoto.

The proof is in the results. Riders may come and go, but one thing stays the same: KX wins.

POWER FOR THE PODIUM

The all-new engine is more powerful and lightweight. Featuring a new top end, new cylinder offset, all-new cases and the race-tested Bridged-Box Bottom piston gleaned from the Monster Energy Kawasaki race bikes, the KX

450F motorcycle now produces more peak power while retaining broad usable power delivery for groundbreaking performance. An all-new exhaust header features a resonator to improve throttle response and reduce sound level. The new lightweight airbox with rear intakes under the seat ensures additional airflow, which contributes to improved throttle response and helps reduce intake noise.

NEW CHASSIS

Feel the agility of the KX450F as the new chassis features a slimmer and lighter aluminum perimeter frame with revised rigidity and a new down-tube that improves front end feel. The width between frame spars has been reduced, and a 6mm slimmer profile enhances the rider’s ability to move on the bike. The rider cockpit is further streamlined by turning the radiators in by 10 degrees. Combined with the narrower frame spars, the radiator shrouds are now 1.3 inches slimmer at their widest point. The swingarm has also been updated to optimize rigidity, which increases rear wheel traction and improves rider feel.

NEW KX FI CALIBRATION KIT

(HANDHELD)

The KX FI Calibration Kit is a Genuine

Kawasaki Accessory that allows the rider or technician to precisely adjust fuel and ignition settings via a handheld module, eliminating the need for a trackside laptop computer and 12-volt battery. The kit stores up to seven preset maps and has a

PC interface.This kit is sold separately.

See page 29 for more information.

NEW BODYWORK

Race, win, and look good doing it as the all-new KX450F has an aggressive style to match your own. With a flatter seat and light, minimalistic bodywork parts such as new number plates, fenders, skid plate, and water pump guard, the pieces are seamlessly unified for a smoother, more natural rider interface.

140 shown

FRAME

A low 30.7-inch seat height on the KLX140 (31.5-inch seat on the KLX140L) feels just right. The rigid, high-tensile steel perimeter frame creates a stable and well-balanced chassis for a confidence-inspiring ride.

WHEELS

The KLX140L features 19-inch front and 16-inch rear wheels to allow a more comfortable seat height for taller riders and ample ground clearance. The KLX140 rides on 17-inch front and 14-inch rear wheels for a lower seat height and nimble handling.

BRAKES

The KLX140/140L has strong stopping power with front and rear disc brakes. The 220mm petal brake disc in the front with a largebore 27mm twin-piston caliper. Slowing the rear is a 186mm petal brake disc with a 27mm single-piston caliper.

110/110L

FUN FOR THE FAMILY

Whether you use it as a starter bike for your kids, in-the-pits transportation or for mischievous mini-moto action, the KLX110/110L are versatile off-road machines that the whole family can enjoy. You have the option to choose the best fit with the 26.8-inch seat height of the KLX110 or the taller 28.7-inch seat height of the KLX110L.

STARTER SYSTEM

With a push-button electric start, fun is just the press-of-a-button away. But a kick starter ensures a reliable backup. The KLX110/110L will only start in neutral, ensuring the rider is ready to go before the engine springs to life. A screw-type throttle limiter can be used to help control speed while new riders are learning the basics.

AUTOMATIC CLUTCH

The KLX110 is equipped with a 4-speed transmission and a resilient centrifugal clutch so entry-level riders can learn to shift without the distraction of operating a clutch lever. The larger KLX110L has a manual clutch to add performance while the rider develops their skills.

SUSPENSION

The 30mm telescopic fork of the KLX110L has 5.5 inches of travel and the rear shock has 5.2 inches of travel while the KLX110 is equipped with 4.3 inches of travel for both the front fork and rear shock. Both suspension packages are tuned for optimal handling and are well balanced to offer great bump absorption and bottoming resistance.
