KAWASAKI KFX®50 YOUTH MODEL ALL-TERRAIN VEHICLE
Off-road fun and safety in Kawasaki Green

Kawasaki Motor Corp.Off-road recreation is a family affair for many people, and the Kawasaki KFX®50 all-terrain vehicle (ATV) is an excellent first choice for parents who want to share the fun with their children while teaching them how to ride safely and responsibly.

Designed for riders ages six and older, the KFX50 ATV offers the simplicity of operation that helps adults teach children the important fundamentals of proper ATV control. At the same time, the KFX50 is easy to maintain, so families can spend more time riding the trails together rather than “wrenching” in the garage.

The KFX50 ATV is powered by an air-cooled 49cc, two-stroke engine that features automatic oil injection, so premixing fuel is unnecessary. Safety features include a removable power plate in the exhaust and a throttle limiting screw so parents can regulate speed, as well as a walk-behind ignition cut-off tether that stops the engine at
the parent’s discretion.

The engine rides in a steel frame and power is transferred to the rear wheels by lightweight chain drive. Suspension duties are handled by A-arm front suspension with dual shocks and a single-shock swingarm on the rear, while stopping power is provided by front and rear drum brakes.

Other KFX50 features include full-sized floorboards for confidence and safety, one-piece 7-inch wheels, 2.6-liter fuel tank, and a simple seat latch that provides quick
and easy access to the air cleaner.

Available in Kawasaki Lime Green—a kid favorite—the KFX50 ATV comes with a six-month warranty that can be extended up to three additional years. As with any youth model ATV or motorcycle, Kawasaki strongly encourages direct parental supervision when children are riding. Families who have never experi-enced ATVing can call Kawasaki toll-free at 1-877-KAWI-ATV or visit the website for information on how to get started. Because Kawasaki believes in safe operation of off-highway vehicles, it will pay first-time Kawasaki ATV purchasers $100 for completing an ATV instruction course provided by the ATV Safety Institute (ASI). Interested consumers can call ASI toll-free at 800-887-2887.

Information about Kawasaki’s complete line of recreational products and Kawasaki affiliates can be found on the Internet at www.kawasaki.com.
