2018 Kawasaki KX450F | First Impression

Unchanged and Well-Liked


As the old saying goes, if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it. This was Kawasaki’s approach to the 2018 KX450F, and understandably so. After all, the 2017 model earned itself a third place score in last years shootout. There are a few minor areas that our test rider Tallon LaFountaine felt that the bike could be improved, but overall he was happy to spin laps on the new machine at Perris Raceway. He gave us his first impression of the new machine and filled us in on what it’s like to ride the 2018 KX450F.
