The KFX 700 all-terrain vehicle (ATV) continues to be popular with cross-country racers and off-roaders alike. That's because Kawasaki bolted a powerful V-twin engine and automatic transmission into its racing-style chassis, making aggressive riding on the KFX 700 fun and easy, from morning to sunset. And for 2006, the KFX 700 comes in a cool Meteor Blue or stunning Galaxy Silver, in addition to Kawasaki's trademark Lime Green.
The KFX 700's power and performance begins with its engine. The liquid-cooled, 697 cc, four-stroke, 90-degree V-twin is matched to a performance tuned continuously variable automatic transmission. Combined, the powerful engine and automatic transmission eliminate rpm and shifting concerns because it's in the optimum powerband at all times. This allows the rider to focus even more attention on choosing good lines, whether it's on the race track or trail.
Other features include shaft drive, powerful dual front disc brakes and Kawasaki's sealed, oil-bathed, multi-disc rear brake system. The KFX 700 also features the industrys first mass-produced ATV chassis with a racing-inspired single lower front frame tube- the design preferred by cross-country ATV racers.
Rear suspension duties are handled by a motocross-inspired swingarm with a piggy-back reservoir shock, and ITP Holeshot tires provide the KFX 700 with maximum traction and maneuverability.
Rounding out the features list are sport-style serrated footpegs, a protective engine skid plate and a powerful 45-watt headlight.
As with all off-highway vehicle recreation, Kawasaki encourages ATV riders to ride responsibly and to respect the environment. Kawasaki will pay first-time buyers of a new Kawasaki ATV $100 for completing an ATV rider safety course conducted by the ATV Safety Institute (ASI). Interested consumers can call ASI toll-free at 800-887-2887.
