Firmly established in many global markets as the ideal youth or “first time” powered off-road four-wheeler, the KFX 90 will officially appear in the UK for the first time in 2023.

Aggressively styled to echo larger, adult focused KFX quad machines – as well as drawing influence from the two-wheeled KX motocross range – there is no mistaking the updated and restyled frontal area of the lime green racing bodywork with its tall front fenders and Kawasaki branded handlebar pad, but that is just a small part of the story.

While junior dreams of all the terrain they will conquer…. and all the mud they will blast through, parents will zone in on some of the great safety features that create reassurance and allow safe and structured use of this, the first powered vehicle many of the riders will have ever operated.

To start with; the electric starter. The KFX90 is started by inserting and turning an ignition key (that at other times can be kept safe and “out of harm’s way”) plus there is a clever “starter lock-out” safety feature meaning the KFX90 can only be started with the brakes fully applied. And in terms of brakes, no corners are cut with handlebar levers left and right with the front drum brakes operated from the right lever plus a powerful hydraulic rear disc actuated by the left handlebar lever.

That’s start and stop dealt with but what about Go? Utilising a compact and time-proven 89.9cc four-stroke , air-cooled engine, the KFX90 is CVT equipped meaning the only thing junior has to concentrate on is what appropriate speed to travel at and when to apply the brakes leaving the continuously variable transmission to do the rest. Incidentally, there is a throttle stop mechanism that can be set by an adult supervisor so that learning to operate the KFX90 can be done step-by-step with a grown up rationing the urge available.

Two other areas where style meets practicality are the footboards and the new lighting array. Deep non-slip material equipped footboards and compact bodywork styling ensure that the riders’ feet remain inboard and safe at all times, while LED front accent lights and a large rear light are bright, easy to see and low maintenance.

Underpinned by a highly competent and rigid steel cradle chassis with high quality independent adjustable A-arm front suspension and swingarm rear suspension, the KFX is a great introduction to both powered off-road vehicles and Kawasaki. Bring on the Tougher Terrains and Bigger Adventures, the KXF90 is ready and waiting.  

The KXF90 will arrive in dealers in late October and the SRP is £3,299

Thanks to serious investment made by PIERER Mobility AG, added to GASGAS’ longstanding passion and commitment to trial sport, we’ve created our best trial bikes ever. This successful alliance between Europe’s #1 bike building company and GASGAS, the trial specialists, has created a strengthened R&D team, a re-energized GASGAS Factory Racing trial team, and a clearer, more detailed testing process, which directly led to the creation of an all-new generation of GASGAS trial bikes.

Our goal heading into 2023 was simple – to build the best performing GASGAS trial bikes ever made! Besides retaining the finest, competition-focused aftermarket components, the TXT RACING and TXT GP ranges are pretty much all-new. Everything on the outgoing generation was thoroughly analyzed then refined or replaced with better, stronger, or lighter parts. The 2023 GASGAS trial line-up more than exceeds what we set out to do.

Developed over the last two years, the latest generation of GASGAS TXT RACING trial bikes deliver unrivaled performance with looks to match. Ensuring serious rideability has always been at the top of the list when building our much-loved TXT RACING range, which is now complete with even more quality components to lift the all-important fun-factor to impressive new levels for 2023. The four proven capacities – 300cc, 280cc, 250cc, and 125cc – are retained giving riders of all ages and abilities the chance to experience something very special.

The GP in TXT GP standing for Grand Prix, you know this model range means business. Capable of competing at the highest level straight from the showroom floor, the TXT GP is available in two classic displacement sizes – 300cc and 250cc. Designed specifically for the more serious riders out there, these are the very best 2-stroke trial bikes that money can buy.

The TXT RACING models will land in dealerships worldwide from late August 2022 with the TXT GP trial bikes arriving shortly after.

TXT GP 2023

The TXT GP range consists of the TXT GP 250 and 300.

TXT RACING 2023

The TXT Racing range consists of the TXT Racing 125, 250, 280 and 300.

2023 KX250 increases available power while decreasing lap times

A competition reference machine, the Kawasaki KX250 is a pivotal bike in the Kawasaki range appealing to youth, intermediate, national and full class MX2 riders; each with their own special wants and needs. For 2023, the Kawasaki engineers have absorbed feedback from AMA Supercross, the MX2 class in the MXGP paddock and, closer to home, the All-Japan Motocross Championship. And the distillation of all that feedback has produced a machine that will ably answer the needs of its diverse customer base.

Chief among many changes are those in the engine group. Within the cylinder head a narrower pitch for the intake valves (37 mm to 35.5 mm), coupled with increased clearance at the valve seats, delivers increased cylinder-filling efficiency and improved combustion for increased peak performance. And to accurately fill that cylinder, the downdraft style intake duct is straighter plus the upstream injector is repositioned from above to below the duct.  These changes further contribute to increased cylinder-filling efficiency which adds to peak performance. In terms of the valves themselves, they are smaller (ø32 mm to ø31 mm) contributing to cylinder-head/valve-seat reliability while enabling the tighter valve pitch while the piston crown is revised to match the valve size and pitch changes.

Aside from the greater engine performance due to these new efficiencies a longer exhaust header pipe (457 mm to 557 mm) offers increased low-mid range torque while the Akashi engineers also ensured that advanced ignition timing matches the engine changes. In terms of power feeling, a new magneto rotor with an increased moment of inertia (9.5 kg·cm2 to 10.0 kg·cm2) contributes to a more racer-friendly power delivery.

In terms of gears, ratios three, four, five and six remain the same but a longer first gear is introduced thanks to feedback from AMA Supercross and the second gear is also modified to make a smoother transition between first and third.

All Japan Motocross Championship experience resulted in changes to the front fork internals to deliver firmer compression damping that contributes to increased off-road performance without sacrificing ride comfort. While the fork spring rate itself is unchanged, a revised oil height contributes to optimised overall spring characteristics. The rear suspension now features firmer compression damping contributing to increased off-road performance without sacrificing ride comfort.

Other chassis upgrades include the adoption of a wider rear tyre for 2023 in the form of Dunlop’s MX33 110/90-19 to compared to the 100/90-19 used last year while the footpegs are 5 mm wider (front-to-rear) and positioned 3 mm rearward to offer excellent grip, superb feel making it easier to weight the pegs plus they are lighter too.

Wise tuners will tell you that gradual refinement and upgrades that integrate seamlessly are often the route to racing success and that is just the route that Kawasaki takes for its quarter litre race class machine. Useable power, considered engine and chassis upgrades plus genuine podium potential, its got to be the new 2023 KX250 from Kawasaki. 

Prices and availability will be announced soon. 

Kawasaki unveils 2023 off road range

Covering the widest spectrum of off-road sport and fun riding, the 2023 Kawasaki off-road motorcycle range has just been announced. Catering for the needs of professional podium chasers, committed enduro riders, enthusiastic weekend competitors and those just starting on two-wheels, the range is certainly comprehensive.

Entry level and first championship riders will enjoy the KLX110R and KX65 respectively with the four-stroke KLX employing a 4-speed transmission with automatic clutch for stall-free shifting, it is the ideal machine to learn the craft of off-road riding on while the two-stroke KX65 is the stuff of legends, having won more races and championships than any proud father has had time to put up trophy shelves.

Further up the capacity scale – and sticking with the two-stroke theme – are the small and large wheel KX85 machines. They are liquid-cooled and feature Kawasaki’s Uni-Trak suspension while benefiting from constant refinement keeping them competitive and reliable. And that reliability and durability is something that Kawasaki owners report back on often. No use being fast one day and in the garage with a stripped down, unreliable bike the next weekend. It’s consistency that wins Championships.  At the top end of the range is the mighty KX450, the most powerful production MX machine Kawasaki has ever manufactured. Created to dominate in the upper echelons of off-road sport, the mighty KX450 continues to carve a fearsome reputation heading up an impressive range of off-road machines.

In terms of enduro style machines, the successful KX450X and KX250X feature boldly in the new season range both ready to attack Hare & Hound style events plus organised enduro events that allow such machines to compete.

A new off-road season is always something to welcome and Kawasaki dealers across Europe are looking forward to answering the riding needs of a diverse audience. The green team is ready for the good times ahead in 2023 and prepared to do anything it takes to help Kawasaki riders achieve the success they deserve.

Prices and availability will be confirmed soon.

With a carefully designed chassis that accommodates its smaller wheels, the bike ensures uncompromised handling and performance, and is ready to shred with a simple prod of the kick starter.

We ticked all the boxes when it came to building what we believe is the ultimate 250cc 2-stroke motocross bike, our MC 250. With an engine that boasts tons of torque down low together with ample power up top, with WP XACT Suspension it soaks up bumps and jumps no matter how hard or fast a rider hits them.

For those seeking their very first taste of competition, the KX65 provides a sturdy, easy to maintain and thoroughly competitive place in the Kawasaki pack with the venerable KX85 on the near horizon as “next bike” for many young and fast-growing riders.

GASGAS Motorcycles take to the start of FIM Motocross World Championship

Historic new chapter begins as Standing Construct GASGAS Factory Racing and DIGA Procross GASGAS Factory Juniors contest the opening World Championship event of 2020

GASGAS Motorcycles will start an exciting new chapter in their offroad motorsport history this weekend as they step into the FIM Motocross World Championship for the first time. In what is a key moment for the brand as it expands to compete in top-level motocross alongside its trial, rally and planned enduro activities, the opening round of the MXGP and MX2 series will see GASGAS represented by Standing Construct GASGAS Factory Racing and DIGA Procross GASGAS Factory Juniors in the MXGP and MX2 classes respectively.

  • GASGAS Motorcycles start new motorsport chapter with MXGP entry
  • Standing Construct GASGAS Factory Racing spearhead MXGP effort
  • DIGA Procross GASGAS Factory Juniors set to do battle in MX2

Robert Jonas, VP Motorsports Offroad: “This is a very proud and important moment for all involved with GASGAS Motorcycles – the start of an exciting new chapter and the beginning of the brand’s journey into top-level motocross racing. GASGAS has a rich heritage in offroad motorcycling, it’s a brand that is about putting the fun back into riding, and together with Standing Construct GASGAS Factory Racing and DIGA Procross GASGAS Factory Juniors we have two established and passionate teams that perfectly fit what GASGAS is about. Like always, the first GP of every new season is a special moment, but we can say that for GASGAS this is also an historic moment. We know that all of our riders have prepared themselves with full commitment and we’re looking forward to seeing how they perform this year. Matterley Basin, the British GP, is a milestone for GASGAS Motorcycles, a key moment as we start our push to establish the brand on a global scale.”

Becoming a part of PIERER Mobility AG at the end of 2019, GASGAS Motorcycles will benefit from the groups shared-platform strategy, alongside other brands within the company. Faced with a minimal amount of time in which to be ready for the MXGP season opener, the specification of both the MC 250F and MC 450F machines used at Matterley Basin and throughout early-season GPs will evolve in-line with the arrival of the 2021 GASGAS Motorcycles production models.

Making GASGAS’ presence felt in the MXGP class, Standing Construct GASGAS Factory Racing will lead the brand into premier class competition. Glenn Coldenhoff, who placed third in last year’s series, comes into 2020 fit, healthy and looking to challenge for race wins. With impressive racing credentials, which include four overall GP wins and a pair of unbeaten performances at the two most recent editions of the Motocross of Nations, Coldenhoff begins the season in high spirits and as GASGAS’ MXGP team leader.

Ivo Monticelli completes Standing Construct GASGAS Factory Racing’s MXGP line-up. Continuing with Standing Construct for a second season, Ivo will look to harness his attacking riding style and post consistent results for both GASGAS and himself. During 2019, Monticelli placed a career-best fifth overall at the MXGP of Trentino, highlighting just what the Italian is capable of.

GASGAS Motorcycles are represented in the MX2 class by the DIGA Procross GASGAS Factory Juniors team. Fielding a young pair of talented Germans – Jeremy Sydow and Simon Langenfelder – the squad and their riders are aiming for top-10 results in their first full season of world championship participation. Sydow placed sixth in the final EMX 250 championship standings in 2019 and raced one MX2 GP where he posted an impressive 13th overall.

Glenn Coldenhoff: “It’s great to be a rider on a brand that is new to MXGP and to be a part of GASGAS’s history is an amazing feeling. I’m looking forward to making some good results and I’ve been working really hard over the winter months. There are some expectations from the team and also from myself, but we are racing MXGP and the goal is to win, so hopefully we can make that happen.”

Ivo Monticelli: “It’s a new bike and a new project and I’m really happy with what the team and GASGAS have provided me with. I’ve had a great off-season and I’ve been preparing the best that I can to ensure that I’m ready for the season. I’m ready to get on the gas!”

Jeremy Sydow: “It’s a really great opportunity for me to be a part of the DIGA Procross GASGAS Factory Juniors team. It will be my second year with this team and I’m really happy with my bike and appreciate the trust that they have in me. I can’t wait to race this season and I’ll be giving my best effort at all times to be the best rider that I can be.”

: “It’s super-exciting to be racing a GASGAS this season. It will be my first full season in MX2, and I know that I have the bike and team to succeed. We’ve had a great winter preparation and I’m really happy with my bike so I’m looking forward to a great season ahead.”
