2009 Kawasaki KFX 90
Stylish ATV sized to fit growing youth
Parents appreciate quality products that are designed to fit the needs of their growing youth. A wide stance, large tires, and full floorboards allow the KFX90 to offer stable and confidence-inspiring handling traits. Its friendly performance and big-bike styling make the KFX®90 ATV a smart choice for riders 12 years and older. At the core of the KFX90 is a reliable and environmentally friendly four-stroke air-cooled engine that provides healthy mid-range performance with an easy-to-use power delivery.
The KFX90 is also equipped with electric starting, single-shock swingarm rear suspension, A-arm front suspension, dual front drum and single rear disc brakes, much like those found on the larger KFX models.
Parents are sure to appreciate the added safety offered by the KFX90s keyed ignition switch which prevents use without the key. Once they hand over the key, parents can maintain control over the KFX90s use via the throttle limiting screw and a CVT transmission speed limiter. These allow the maximum speed to be preset to match the riders ability while letting the rider's confidence and skill levels increase in controlled increments.
The KFX90 is the perfect choice for riders 12 years and older. This ATV offers great mid-range engine performance with full-size ATV flair in its styling. Power comes from an easy to use and environmentally friendly, four-stroke, air-cooled powerplant.
