Three of Kawasaki's dirt bikes, the KX65, the KX112, and the KLX 230R, have been launched in the Indian market in MY2024 versions and are available for Rs 3.12 lakh, Rs 4.87 lakh, and Rs 5.21 lakh, respectively. All prices are ex-showroom. The dirt bikes KX65 and the KX112 are perfect for bringing novice and intermediate riders to the motocross world of competition. According to the firm, these redesigned models reinforce Kawasaki's dedication to offering a broad selection of off-road motorcycles designed to cater to the needs of riders at all skill levels. Notably, the KX65 and the KX112 were created specifically for use on tracks. As a result, they are missing parts like rear-view mirrors, turn indicators, taillights, as well as headlights. The introduction of these bikes signifies an important phase in the Indian Motocross Industry. Let's know more about these newly launched bikes.
