2021 Kawasaki KX450 Review First Ride

  2021 Kawasaki KX450 Review First Ride 2021 Kawasaki KX450 Review First RideThe changes made to the KX450 for MY21 include a new coned disc-spring hydraulic clutch, larger-diameter clutch plates with a revised friction material, a new dry film lubricant coating on the piston skirt, and the switch to a Renthal Fatbar 839-bend handlebar, which is 1-1/8 inches in diameter and the same bar and bend that comes stock on the 2019 and 2020 Honda CRF450R.

2017 was the year that the Kawasaki Z900 replaced the outgoing Z800, the increase in displacement and chassis developments gave its fellow naked bike competition a run for the money. Seriously, the Z900 is a capable motorcycle.

Now for 2020, the Z900 continues to see styling, chassis, and tech updates that further enhance this naked supersport. New and notable features include ride modes, traction control, improved suspension, strengthened frame, and more. Powering this exhilarating Z is the 948cc inline-four mill and as one of the higher-displacement models in the Z lineup, it is designated for those seeking to put the improved chassis to use slaloming up and down the asphalt or racing the clock at the track.

2020 Kawasaki Z900 Reviews, Comparisons, And Competition

The Z900 spent some quality time with our in-house rear wheel dyno to prove that it can and will deliver the beans by measuring an impressive 113.96 hp at 9,710 rpm and 67.30 pound-feet at 7,990 rpm.

When we spent some time on the machine we found “one of Z’s real strong points is its versatility. A comfortable commuter or a quick canyon carver—this bike can do it all well and a lot of that is thanks to the suspension. On highways and straight roads, the bike is a little stiff and the ride can be slightly harsh, but it’s a worthy trade-off for the way it performs through a canyon.”

A supernaked bike showdown can be had between this $8,999 machine and similarly priced Yamaha MT-09 or the slightly more expensive $10,500 Triumph Street Triple R or $11,699 KTM 890 Duke R.
