Kawasaki takes home top honors from three different publications for the 450cc class for their limited edition 2022 KX 450SR motocross motorcycle.
Featuring elite-level racing components, special factory tuning, and design updates inspired by the Monster Energy Kawasaki race team, the KX 450SR was designed and marketed as an out-of-the-box champion’s bike.
Swapmoto Live, Keefer Inc Testing, and Dirtbike Magazine have all selected the KX 450SR when compared to other competitive dirt bikes, using several different metrics, including speed, handling, comfort, and more.
