2013 Kawasaki KFX90 Comparison Review Photo Gallery
The 2013 Kawasaki KFX90 didn't win the hearts of our young testers as much as the other mounts in our 2013 Kids ATV Shootout, but it has plenty of features to make it an excellent beginner's ride.

The Kawasaki KFX90 had more mud coverage than the other two machines the kids tested, which made it much easier when it came time to clean up.
The Kawasaki KFX90 is an awesome youth ATV. It is the only one of these three that offers a kick starter and if your family bleeds green it is the only real option.
Rear disc brakes got caked with mud by the end of the day, sacrificing some of the rear braking performance.
Single A-arm front suspension allowed 2.8-inches of travel.
The Kawasaki KFX90 has continuously variable transmission, meaning there's no need for junior to shift through gears while turning laps at the track.
Though there's a throttle limiter on the Kawasaki KFX90, it doesn't limit the top speed so if the rider keeps the throttle pinned it will continue to accelerate.
Ease of starting is a huge attribute and this is the one area where the KFX90 had the other ATVs covered. When it came time to start and roll, the Kawasaki was king.
One of the things we are on the fence about the KFX90 is the absence of a rear foot-pedal brake and the CVT transmission. While both are nice for a new rider it leaves them with plenty more to learn later on.
The little Kawi tackled nearly everything the kids threw at it, including this sizable pool of water late in the day.
