I really like the clean graphics but I have never cared for that bodywork.

True, but if you're ever stuck in an avalanche, you could dig your way out with that rear fender!

1990 was the year I started racing as an 8 year old and the 1990 Kawasaki was the bike I wanted above all others!!!

I completely agree... In '79 I picked up my first Honda support ride and was on the too-tall, ill handling, 23" front wheeled CR125. I was in awe of those Kawasaki's, the gold was just too cool.

I was fast... But being fast is relative to who else is on the track with you.

I was a kid when these came out, I frothed on them so much! Photo

Mathes know’s what’s up Tony, absolutely scandalous to put a 4 banger ahead of the H1/H2 gen KX, ffs!

‘91, ‘92 then ‘94 as my top 3 from a life long Kawi guy. Still own the ‘91 too!

I had one of these in 94 when I was 19. I rode it until it was just a pile of worn out, bent and beaten parts. Rode the hell out of it on a daily basis.
Good times

Basically ANY KX 500 from 1988 to 1994... with the exception of maybe 89 and the blue side plates. The KX 500 might be the sexiest bike of all time.

I was going to say the 90kx 125 as had one, but the 500 SR GP bikes took some beating that year for looks etc. And with a very young Paul Mallin riding it too

I don't know if I can qualify the 94 as the best, but goddamn it is everything 90s moto meant to me as a kid. That look is just one of those bikes that stands out to me from my youth from a visual pov.

Not as infamous as the 92 RM, nor as clean as the 93 CR and YZ but so freaking 90s moto cool!
