Has anyone got one yet?

Everyone is still waiting. All speculation as to when they are to arrive it seems.

Yeah my brother is still waiting on all the KX's to come in.
He's a team green dealer and has got one 2021 KX 450XC so far. He sold it in 1 day.

Buddy just called me yesterday to say his 21 kx450 was ready to be picked up. Thats in Maryland. I was really hoping the 250 would be in by holiday weekend but that doesn't look like thats gonna happen.

I have checked with a few dealers. Some saying first part of September with others saying they have no idea.

Yeah it's nuts right now. I was in my brothers dealership yesterday. He's one of the biggest Polaris dealers in Indiana and also sells Kaw.
Here's what he had in stock to sell. 1 KX 65, 1 TM 300 and 1 Kawasaki Brute force quad. Thats it!

It's not unusual for him to have 50 to 60 SxS's in stock during normal times, plus quads and dirt bikes. Right now when he gets a delivery of SxS's they're sold when they hit the ground. He has people putting money down a month ahead of their unit getting delivered.

They've been in business since 1974 and I've never seen his showroom so empty. Crazy days!

I’ve seen 2021 kawi 450s in dealers for about 3 weeks now all over PA and NJ they are out there

250’s are a few weeks away yet, most likely you’ll see them by Mid September

I just saw that LBC Motorcycles (UK) will offer tests on the new kx 250/450 on September 27th. Maybe they will be available everywhere by then?

|

Just a call from the dealer that mine has shipped from the warehouse and will be in next week. Sounds like they are only being sent one currently.

Such AWESOME News!

I’m stoked for our industry. We’re usually one of the hardest hit, like in 2008-2012... i
But, this time? People wanted to go outside and play.

Nice!

I ripped a start from Egypt and I was happy about that.

They seem to be the only one with actual pictures of the bike.

I would think 450 radiator braces are more likely to fit

Had a 2019 350 sxf for the last 2 years, sold that in July as it was getting up there (100 hours) and was eyeing up the kx. Great bikes but wanted a 250 and a bike that comes with spring forks

Very interested to hear how the motor feels compared to a 350.

If it’s anything like the 19 kx450 was, the OEM one that came on the 16-18 bolted right up to the 19.

Nice
Do you plan on throwing a skid plate on it? I just noticed it comes stock with only the right side covered, kinda funky.
