As your young rider continues to grow they need a dirt bike that can be there for when they make the transition from the small bikes to a full-size motocrosser. Enter the 2020 Kawasaki KX100. The KX100 continues the two-stroke line of engines from Kawasaki, and is actually the only two-stroke model on the market with 99cc. To create a smooth transition to full-size motocrossers, the KX100 is fitted with 19-inch front and 16-inch rear wheels (in comparison to the 17-inch and 14-inch wheels on the KX85), as well as an adjustable handlebar mounting system.

Not to mention the KX100 is a prominent platform for Team Green’s amateur racing program and serves as a steppingstone for racers looking to move to the 125 two-stroke or 250 four-stroke class.

2020 Kawasaki KX100 Reviews, Comparisons, And Competition

Being the only two-stroke in its displacement level, the Kawi doesn’t have many bikes that act as its competition. The KTM 85 SX and Husqvarna TC 85 models are offered in two wheel sizes—17/14 inches and 19/16 inches—with the latter serving as the KX’s competition. More rivals would be Yamaha YZ85, Suzuki RM85, and TM MX 85, as well as the Honda CRF150R and CRF150R Expert models.
