        Kawasaki has aspiring motocross racers in mind this year—the brand has updated its 2022 off-road lineup with a totally-new, youth-focused model in the KX112 and updates to the KX85.

        The KX112 replaces the outgoing KX100 as Kawasaki’s offering for riders looking to step up from mini bikes to full-fat motocross racers. Carried over from the previous model is its carbureted 99cc two-stroke single-cylinder engine, which has been stroked out to 112cc and tweaked to produce 5% more peak power and more low-end torque.

        Other improvements over the KX112’s predecessor include an all-new six-speed transmission built to take off-road abuse, a redesigned radiator shroud for improved ergonomics and cooling, and lime green-colored Kawasaki factory racing styling.

        New Dunlop MX33 tires are mounted on a 19-inch spoked wheel in front and a 16-inch wheel out back. Holding the bike up are a 36mm inverted fork and an adjustable Uni-trak gas-charged shock, both of which have up to 10.8 inches of travel. Petal-shaped rotors are pinched onto by a dual-piston front caliper and a single-piston at the rear.

        Because it’s a bike that will likely see a wide variety of rider sizes, Kawasaki has equipped it with a six-position adjustable handlebar and a 34.3-inch seat height.

        The updated 2022 KX85 also receives Dunlop MX33s, in addition to a new six-speed gearbox tuned for better shift feel and durability. Its redesigned bodywork makes for less-cramped ergonomics for taller riders. A new radiator shroud also means better cooling for its race-ready 84cc two-stroke engine.

        Other members of Team Green’s off-road family return mostly unchanged for 2022, including the entry-level KX65, the KX450 and KX250 four-stroke models, and more.

        Pricing for the 2022 Kawasaki KX112 starts at $4,999 or about P240,000. The updated KX85 goes for $4,499 or P215,000. Dont get your wallet and off-road goggles ready just yet, though,  as there is no word yet on a Philippine release.
