1996 KDX 200
Kawasaki | Enduro | 2 Stroke
After researching for an affordable and fun bike to learn off-road riding, the Kawasaki KDX200 was the crowd favorite. At ~250lbs (dry) this bike is easy to pick up and the 200cc 2-strokes gives plenty of room to have fun.
There are plenty of these bikes on craigslist - I picked this '96 KDX 200 for $900. I've learned a lot since the purchase, knowing what I know now, for the condition of the bike I probably overpaid - but hey, that's part of discovering a new hobby!
