Read those headlines again! Believe it or not KTM gained 5 horsepower in one year, while Kawasaki slowed down the KX450F and sped up the KX250F…and made both bikes better at the same time.
This is the KTM 350SXF the way it should have been built back in 2011. If this bike had come out two years ago, there would be more racers on 350s today.
Jody may be writing about modern motocross racers, but he went back to his younger days to make the point. This photo was shot at Saddleback Park 30 years ago. Talk about being in a rut, the guy was doing the same thing 30 years ago that he is doing this weekend ? racing motorcycles.
The Kawasaki KX250F has won the MXA 250 Four-Stroke Shootout more times than any bike in the last five years. Will it win again? You gotta read the test to find out.
Kayaba air forks are coming stock on the 2013 KX450F and the CRF450, so you better get used to working with them…because they require a lot of attention.
MXA’s 2012-2013 two-stroke jetting specs.
Ken Roczen and Marvin Musquin didn’t get to race this bike in the AMA Nationals. It is that new (and we mean “new” in the sense that it shares no engine parts with the 2012 model).
The Men Who Made Us Who We Are ? Steve Wise.
For some reason the KX250F has a black rear fender and the KX450F has a white rear fender?no problem, you can tell them apart by the wail of the KX450’s 120 decibel engine.
