BUILT FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO WIN
Designed with mid-level to expert riders in mind, the KX450 motorcycle has always been built with one simple goal: to put riders on the top step of the podium – something that KX brand motocrossers have been extremely successful at doing for over 40 years. Completely revised in 2019 with a new engine mounted in its leanest chassis to date, the KX450 receives a number of updates in 2021 to maintain its edge in an extremely competitive class.
