Important youth model enters ATV
market in Kawasaki Lime Green

KFX 80Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A., is yet again expanding its message of “Let the good times roll™” with the introduction of a new youth model all-terrain vehicle (ATV). The KFX80 is targeted toward families with riders ages 12-15 and older.

“The KFX80 ATV fills an important spot in the expanding Kawasaki ATV lineup for 2003,” said Vince Iorio, ATV marketing manager for Kawasaki. “It’s part of our bigger plan to offer something for every member of the family who enjoys outdoor recreation.”

The KFX80 is designed for ages 12-15 and older, and is powered by an 82cc two-stroke engine that features automatic oil injection, so premixing fuel is unnecessary. It also features forced-air cooling to maintain optimum operating temperatures. It is matched to a continuously variable automatic transmission and shaft final drive, much like the system utilized on the adult-sized Kawasaki Prairie® ATVs, so no shifting is required. To assist beginning riders with their learning curve, it features a built-in throttle limiter that can be adjusted as rider skills increase.

Other powertrain features include electric start and a maintenance-free battery, dependable CDI ignition, and snorkel air intake that permits the KFX80 to draw fresh air from near the steering head assembly. An added safety feature is the electric start interlock that requires the parking brake to be applied in order to start the engine. Plus, the KFX80 features a U.S. Forest Service-approved spark arrestor.

KFX 80The chassis of the KFX80 is made of sturdy steel tubing and rides on a single A-arm front suspension with dual shocks and a rear swingarm with a single shock. Stopping power is provided by durable front and rear drum brakes.

The KFX80 has a 1.6-gallon fuel tank for extended riding, and a keyed ignition system helps prevent unauthorized use.

Available in Kawasaki Lime Green, the KFX80 has a suggested retail price of $2,299 and comes with a six-month warranty that can extended up to three additional years.
