Kawasaki has a proud history of racing, but was conspicuously absent from the production
motocross market in the very early 1970s. That changed in 1974, when Kawasaki released the
first of the “KX” line: the 125, 250, and 450. The KX125 was an excellent machine, even when
compared with the amazing 1973 Honda CR125 Elsinore. The little Kawasaki featured a
powerful and flexible 6-speed rotary-valve engine, and may have been the best-handling—and
most beautiful—of all the 125cc racers. 1974 KX125s are rare; legend maintains that dealers in
1974 were only allotted two machines that year. This design is a drawing of my first MX bike, which I bought new in 1974, and still have.
