The Kawasaki KX85 has a more powerful 85cc two stroke engine and the cylinder head now has a smaller squish band with a narrower angle and a shallower combustion chamber. It has been given a larger exhaust port for improved flow with a wide open throttle, the revised Kawasaki Integrated Power valve System (KIPS) has new independent sliders for each exhaust port and also gets a single ring piston for less friction and better engine response.
