MXA VIDEO: WE TEST THE 2022 KAWASAKI KX450
In this MXA video, Motocross Action Magazines tests the 2022 Kawasaki KX450 at Glen Helen Raceway on our first day testing. This bike is identical to the 2021 model in every way except for the graphics. As you would expect, we have tons of time on the 2021 KX450, so we have a fairly good idea on how the new 2022 will perform, but we learn something from almost every race and we think that when it comes time to write the full test for the magazine, we will have a plethora of pluses and minus (and hopefully potential fixes for any ills that we discover). So, come with us on day one as we start the testing process on the 2022 Kawasaki KX450 at Glen Helen Raceway (with a little help from Kawasaki’s ace mechanic Mike Chavez, who if you know your motocross history used to be Damon Bradshaw’s factory mechanic back in the day). MXA Assistant Editor Josh Mosiman breaks down the details on the Kawasaki and covers as many areas as possible on all the things that need help, as well as where the bike excels the most.
