About the AMA Motocross Championship

The AMA Motocrosss Championship, a series run by the AMA (American Motorcyclist Association), is America's top motocross racing series. The season consists of 12 rounds, with each class running two races of 30 minutes plus two laps. Races are held on outdoor dirt courses with man-made technical sections. The two classes are 450 Motocross (4-stroke 450cc machines, or 2-stroke 250cc machines) and 250 Motocross (4-stroke 250cc machines, or 2-stroke 125cc machines). The machines are production motocross racers featuring special tuning. Along with the World Motocross Championship, AMA MX represents the pinnacle of motorcross racing, and like the AMA Supercross Championship attracts top riders from around the world.

Production Model

KX450F

Designed to put expert riders on the top step of the podium, the KX450F has always featured the latest in advanced technology. The highly tuned liquid-cooled 4-stroke DOHC 4-valve engine is mounted in a highly rigid aluminium frame that ensures superb control when riding at high speed. Launch Control Mode, adjustable handlebar and footpegs, and SFF-Air TAC front suspension, which uses pressurised air instead of springs, are just some of the class-leading features that allow Kawasaki riders around the globe to fight for victory.


KX250F

Like every KX motocrosser since the debut of the brand in 1973, the KX250F was designed based on a “Built to Win” philosophy. Its engine the only one in its class to use dual injection – a feature that delivers its phenomenal high-rpm power. Launch Control Mode, which gives riders an edge for nailing the holeshot, and SFF (Separate Function front Fork) Type 2, which contributes to its superb high-speed controllability, are just some of the KX250F’s other high performance features.
