Lighter and more powerful, the KX450F provides sharper handling and improved circuit performance that will dominate the 450cc motocross class. Significant weight reduction in the engine and chassis make the 2016 KX450F the lightest 450cc Kawasaki Motocrosser, while a slimmer chassis and an even more powerful engine result in sharper handling and increased circuit performance.
The enhancements made to the new 2016 KX450F have maintained the KX design philosophy which stretches back to the creation of the KX brand more than 40 years ago; place mid-level to expert riders on the top step of the podium, every time.
Aluminium perimeter frame is a narrower across the main beams, considerably lighter, and features revised rigidity contributing to greater front-end feel.
NEW Width across the main frames is approximately 6 mm slimmer. This facilitates position changes, making it easier for riders to slide forward and backward.
NEW Weighing 400 g less than the previous unit, the lighter weight contributes to the bike’s quicker handling.
NEW Thicker walls for the sub-frame (seat rails) offer increased strength. Slim aluminium perimeter frame is a lightweight construction composed of forged, extruded and cast parts. Chassis balance and settings were all set to suit race-experienced riders.
Narrower frame contributes to a slim package with good ergonomics. The slimmer riding position facilitates control.
NEW Previously an extruded part, the redesigned front down tube is now a combination forged/cast piece (front part is forged; rear part is cast). The new piece contributes to greater front-end feel.
The centre of gravity and key dimensions (swingarm pivot, output sprocket and rear axle locations) were chosen so that the rear tyre would drive the bike forward (instead of causing it to squat).
The KX450F features Showa’s SFF (Separate Function front Fork)-Air TAC (Triple Air Chamber). The works-replica fork is very lightweight and highly rigid, contributing to superior riding stability. With settings chosen for high-level to expert riders, the new fork offers excellent shock absorption performance at high speeds, making it easier for racers to ride faster.
NEW Low-friction seals, and revised valve settings for reduced damping deliver easier fork movement, matching the pitching characteristics to the lighter chassis.
NEW Material trimmed from the fork inner tubes results in lower rigidity, idealised for the new chassis.
A digital hand pump is recommened to make adjustments – see you Kawasaki Dealer for the preferred pump (part # 999A423). Talk with your Kawasaki Dealer to find the best settings to suit your riding.
