The Blue Hoo (3/3/2008)unless you're talkin about a 4 stroke 80cc, such as the honda XR (do they even still make those? been out of the game for awhile), then an 80 is WAY too much power for a 6 year old, i dont care how big he may be. if youre serious about racing, he should be fine on a kx65...just depends on how your boy rides, how big he is, how aggressive, etc.


I rode a kx 80 from 12-14 and I could keep up with the 125s.......so I agree it would be much for a 6yo until maybe 9-10 at least. Master the slow bike, and get fast, then get a fast bike.....and KAWASAKI all the way.

The KX 65's are really fast, not for the beginner. The 50cc 4 stroke is a good starter bike, Honda or Yamaha are popular. The Yamaha pw50 is automatic (just twist the throttle and hang on) and the Honda 50 is a 3 speed. Yes they still make the Honda CRF 70 and CRF 80, same as the old xr's.

there is a big difference between 125D, C, B, and A classes...

i always rode kawasaki as they were my sponsor, but switched to yamaha once i mounted the 125cc
