KAWASAKI KFX®50 YOUTH MODEL
Off-road fun and safety in Kawasaki Green
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.
