Youngsters who have sights set to the circuits and want a fully geared machine to begin their ascent to the big leagues of racing will look for something like the 2020 Kawasaki KX65 (get ready, mom and dad). It has been a staple of Team Green’s amateur racing success.
Its 65cc two-stroke engine with a six-speed gearbox offers a steppingstone between 50cc and 85cc motocross classes, while also packing adjustable suspension and a lightweight chassis. The relatively low 29.9-inch seat height makes the KX65 approachable to a wide range of riders.
Competing in the same league with the KX65 are the Yamaha YZ65, KTM 65 SX, and Husqvarna TC 65. The KX comes at a lower $3,699 price tag where the competition is priced at $4,599, $5,049, and $5,149, respectively.
