2006 KAWASAKI KFX80 YOUTH MODEL ATV
BUILT FOR ASPIRING NEW RIDERS

As young riders grow taller and stronger, and outgrow their beloved KFX50 all-terrain vehicle (ATV), the Kawasaki KFX80 is waiting in the wings to provide them with the fun and performance they want and the safety features parents appreciate.

The KFX80 ATV is designed for riders ages 12 and older, and is powered by an 82cc two-stroke engine that features automatic oil injection, eliminating the need to premix fuel. It also features forced-air cooling to maintain optimum operating temperatures. It is matched to a continuously variable automatic transmission with lightweight chain drive, so no shifting is required. To assist beginning riders with their learning curve, it also features a removable power limiter and a throttle limiting screw that can be adjusted as rider skill increases.

Other features include electric start and a sealed 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.

The chassis of the KFX80 ATV 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.

Authentic Kawasaki Accessories are available through Kawasaki dealers or they can be purchased on the Internet at www.kawasaki.com.

As with all off-highway vehicle recreation, Kawasaki encourages ATV riders to ride responsibly and to respect the environment. Kawasaki will pay first-time buyers of a new Kawasaki ATV $100 for completing an ATV rider safety course conducted by the ATV Safety Institute (ASI). Interested consumers can call ASI toll-free at 800-887-2887.
