First Impression:
2007 KX450F

The ’06 KX450F took home Bike of the Year honors by winning the 2006 450cc four-stroke shootout. Though it wasn’t a unanimous decision amongst the TransWorld Motocross test riders, with a very fast, well-rounded powerplant, a well-balanced set of Kayaba suspension, and a solid all aluminum perimeter frame chassis, last year’s KX450F was a blast to ride.

With over 50 changes made to the new ’07 KX450F, it is clear the Kawasaki engineers wanted to put the green machine into serious contention to repeat, taking back-to-back shootout wins.

Check out the First Impression video to see the 2007 KX450F in action and to see what the TWMX test riders think of the bike. Dial-up users, this is a large file, so be patient.
