"For decades, the 85cc-class mini-motocrosser has been the training crucible for the world’s best racers, and Kawasaki’s KX85 has been at the forefront for much of that time. The level of technology, power and berm-busting capability packed into this 152-pound rocketship is mind-boggling, and the way it can tear up a motocross track in an expert’s hands must be seen to be believed. It’s nothing short of a youth motocrosser’s dream machine."
