Overall, the KX Guru Racing KX500 was by far the most user-friendly 500cc two-stroke we have ever ridden. The power was manageable and smooth, and the suspension was super plush. The integration of new-age technology, years of experience from KX500 racing, and Race Tech’s suspension expertise brought this old dog into the current decade. It is an amazing bike for how old it is. We must admit that we wanted it more to look at than a bike we would ride on a regular basis. It is a bike we would only ride on those rare occasions when we felt like strapping ourself to a bomb to see what would happen.
