Kawasaki’s Approachable KLX Dirt Bikes Are Made To Tackle The Trails

With a handful of off-road motorcycle manufacturers announcing the launch of new models for the year, we’ve been patiently waiting for word from one of Japan’s most illustrious manufacturers, Kawasaki, to release their consumer-oriented four-strokes. Now, our prayers have been answered with the KLX 230R and 300R.

If you’ve ever witnessed Kawasaki’s revered KX race bikes in action, you’ll be happy to hear that the KLX models are being advertised as more accessible platforms for everyday riders. These affordable four-stroke variants utilize the company’s high-tensile steel frame, aluminum swingarm, and six-speed transmission while introducing varying suspension heights and travels for differing ride types. The air-cooled KLX 230R boasts a lower silhouette for short riders, while the liquid-cooled KLX 300R offers 11.2 inches of travel and a Uni-Trak suspension for enhanced absorption while on the trail. Both bikes will hit Kawasaki’s showroom floor by late summer and will cost $4,399, and $5,499, respectively.

Purchase: $4,399+
