WALLPAPER  2010 Kawasaki KX250F and KX450F, specification

2010 Kawasaki KX85
As the sole remaining updated 2-stroke in Kawasaki's dirt bike lineup, the KX85 is holding on with some new graphics and black wheels.
2010 Kawasaki KX85
Kawasaki’s only updated 2-stroke motocross bike is unchanged for 2010 except for some aesthetic cues. Yes, you read correctly – no KX65 or KX100 will be produced this year, however, they have not been dropped entirely from the lineup. Kawi, along with the rest of the motorcycle world, still hasn’t introduced a super-mini-class 4-stroke to combat Honda’s CRF150R.

Some new graphics and black rims freshen things up and apparently are worth an extra $550 (MSRP $3849), but otherwise the KX85 is the same machine as in 2009.
