KX85 slow?

Recommended Posts

I was reading something and it said that the KX85 was the slowest 85 made. Is this true because i'm probably buying an 04 KX85 this week. How do they compare to the other 85's?

It depends on how you define "slow". For an experienced rider, the YZ is probably faster. For a novice, the friendlier power of the KX will make them faster.

I'm pretty experienced. I've rode 125's a few times. They just sit up too high for me. There are really good deals on a KX85 and CR85 on craigslist.

Slow and fast are relative terms... if you're as experienced as you think, then even the "slowest" bike will have no problem being fast for you.

I've seen a kid hop on a bike that the owner called a POS and wanted to get rid of it. That new rider made it suddenly appear like the POS had been shot out of a gun... suddenly the owner wanted the bike back.

You be the judge, don't let what you hear make up your mind before you have sat on it yourself. That's advice not just for the KX85, but for anything you do.
