2016 Kawasaki KX100


Don’t be fooled by its small stature, the powerful 99cc two-stroke engine in the KX100 has “big bike” looks capable of turning heads and winning races with ease. It has the same heritage as Kawasaki’s bigger motocross bikes and is able to get it done on the track thanks to handlebar adjustment to ensure the rider is in the best position to win. Therefore, it is the natural step from smaller dirt bike before the rider is ready to move onto a full-size motocross bike.

The single-cylinder engine has a Nikasil-coated cylinder and two-piece KIPS® (Kawasaki Integrated Powervalve System) valve among its arsenal of power-producing parts. It also has a large-capacity radiator to keep things cool in the heat of a race.

As you’d expect from the Kawasaki KX family, the chassis is highly competitive, using race-style petal-shaped brake rotors front and rear. It also has a 36mm inverted front fork with 20-way adjustable compression damping and 10.8” of travel. The rear suspension uses Kawasaki’s Uni-Trak® linkage for enhanced operation. The rear shock has 24-way compression and 21-way rebound damping, plus adjustable spring preload and the same 10.8” of travel.
