• Kawasaki Launch Control Mode (KLCM) with push-button activation electronically manages engine output in first and second gear to minimize wheel spin when moving off; normal ignition mapping immediately resumes and full power is restored once rider shifts into third gear
• Comes standard with three different four-pin couplers, allowing riders to select pre-programmed fuel injection and ignition mapping to suit their riding style or track conditions (standard, hard or soft terrain settings)
• New valve pitch: 1.5mm narrower pitch for the intake valves and increased clearance at the valve seats to deliver increased cylinder-filling efficiency and improved combustion for improved peak performance
• New intake valves: reduced by 1mm for increased cylinder head and valve seat reliability as well as to accommodate the tighter valve pitch
• New redesigned crown on the 14.1:1 bridged-box piston
• New increased engine performance
• New straighter intake duct with short, tapered intake funnel
• New repositioned upstream injector for increased cylinder-filling efficiency
• New 100mm longer exhaust header pipe offers increased low-mid torque
• New racer-friendly gearing: first gear lengthened to make it easier to use in a greater number of situations; second gear also fine-tuned to offer a smooth transition from first to third gear
• New advanced ignition timing
• New fine-tuned suspension
• New tires with a wider 110/90-19" rear tire
• New lighter and wider footpeg design
• New lighter suspension bolts
• Cooling: liquid
• Engine: DOHC, single piston, finger-follower valve actuation
• Frame: aluminum perimeter; forged, extruded, and cast parts
• Available separately: KX FI Calibration Kit (Handheld) provides access to the fully programmable ECU; this eliminates the need for a trackside laptop and gives riders the ability to create custom maps for precise adjustment of fuel and ignition settings; device can store up to seven preset maps and is PC-compatible
