Youngsters who have sights set to the circuits and want a fully geared machine to begin their ascent to the big leagues of racing will look for something like the 2020 Kawasaki KX65 (get ready, mom and dad). It has been a staple of Team Green’s amateur racing success.

Its 65cc two-stroke engine with a six-speed gearbox offers a steppingstone between 50cc and 85cc motocross classes, while also packing adjustable suspension and a lightweight chassis. The relatively low 29.9-inch seat height makes the KX65 approachable to a wide range of riders.
