  • CHAMPIONSHIP-PROVEN POWER The 2016 KX™450F Motorcycle is lighter and more powerful due to new innovative components and upgrades.
  • Lighter, more powerful engine with improved throttle response, broad power delivery, and increased peak power
  • Race-team-inspired Bridged-Box Bottom piston is lightweight and revised to match new intake valves to optimize combustion efficiency for maximum increased performance at all RPMs
  • New exhaust header with integrated resonator for improved throttle response at low RPM and reduced exhaust sound level
  • New high flow airbox with rear air intake channels
  • Rear seat intakes ensure clean airflow and contribute to reduced engine noise


  • NEW CHASSIS AND BODYWORK A slimmer, lighter, aluminum perimeter frame contributes to more agile handling while a flatter seat and new bodywork contribute to improved rider movement and a championship fit.
  • NEW SLIMMER, LIGHTER CHASSIS • Much lighter aluminum perimeter frame for sharper handling • New forged down-tube for increased rigidity and front end feel • Slimmer perimeter spars and narrow shrouds allow easier rider movement • Optimized rigidity in a new swingarm to improve rear wheel traction
  • AGGRESSIVE BODYWORK • New bodywork is lighter weight with aggressive styling • Flatter seat makes it easier to change riding position • Smoother, seamless surface at the rider’s contact points
  • ADJUSTABLE ERGONOMICS • Adjustable four-position handlebar moves the handlebar towards or away from your body • Two-position adjustable footpegs help reduce knee angle when seated


  • REVISED SHOWA SFF-AIR TAC FORK • New lighter inner fork tubes with reduced rigidity to match the new chassis and improve front end feel • New low friction fork seals • New revised valve settings
  • STEP 1: Set inner chamber air pressure – The pressure in this chamber affects the overall feel across the entire stroke STEP 2: Set the pressure of the outer air chamber – The outer chamber affects the last third of the travel so you can adjust the level of bottoming resistance STEP 3: Set the pressure of the balance chamber – This will adjust fork ride height and damping feel at the initial part of the stroke STEP 4: Final set-up step – Open the bleed screw on the left fork cap. This equalizes pressure with the atmosphere STEP 5: Fine-tune damping – Adjust rebound and compression damping to best suit riding conditions and personal preference


  • ADVANCED FUEL MAPPING TECHNOLOGY The KX™450F motorcycle features several advanced ignition and fuel-mapping systems for advanced and precise adjustability.
  • KX™ FI CALIBRATION KIT (HANDHELD) • Handheld FI calibration kit eliminates need for laptop and 12V battery at the track • Allows the user to adjust fuel and ignition settings for ultimate performance • Can store up to seven preset maps for different tracks
  • DFI® COUPLERS • Factory-tuned power settings with plug-and-play versatility • Select a coupler to access one of the three different preset engine maps • Standard, hard and soft terrain setting options
  • INDUSTRY-FIRSTLAUNCH CONTROL MODE MAXIMIZES TRACTION AND ACCELERATION OUT OF THE GATE • Race-team-derived feature for grabbing the holeshot• Engages with a press of a button • Functions in first and second gear • Precise ignition timing helps ensure quicker acceleration with less slippage
