The KX500AF is 12,499..

keep in mind a KX500 engine assembled new from parts is 6K
and the 250F bike to modify is 6K.
add in the other parts and labor needed to convert a 4 stroke to a 2 stroke and you easily have a 12K bike, even after we sell the 250F engine out.

All the parts for the engine in any of our bikes are ordered individually from the OEMS and hand assembled in our shop, and Both Honda and Kawasaki parts add up.

It is not an inexpensive way to build a motorcycle,but if the OEMS drop a beloved model, it really is the only way to bring it back as a new motorcyle,and in a new chassis an improved one.

The KDX200AF and KDX220AF :)
wil run about the same as the 2012 KX500AF and 2012 KX250AF bikes,
the parts are roughly the same price to build this model.

Wow...looks great.
It is kind of crazy that Kawasaki dropped such a reliable selling model from their lineup. Hey you guys over in Japan...build us this bike and it will sell.

if Kawaasaki did build it it would probably have a price tag of about $7,500

if the specs are right that af is only 8 lbs lighter than a stock kdx...take the oem pipe and silencer of and replace with an fmf and it would be about the same if not lighter.

I wonder how much range is given up with the small tank on the AF?

it does look sweet though

Well ,i do hope someone weighs a stock KDX200 ready to ride, as I really have a hard time believing the Kawaski original specs.OEMs are known to twist numbers a bit ..
I've owned a KDX 200, great bike, but one thing it was not, is light.

The big impressions it made where the great engine,
and the very heavy and hinged feel(but thats just me)

Love my kdx and plan to keep it forever but my next addition to the fleets definitely gonna be a kx500... I have read all about the Service Honda ones and would love one but it's 10x as much as what I'll pay for a decent running regular old used one... So I'll stick with the old used one for now. Planning on plating it. Out where i live the DMV folks don't know that two strokes are not allowed to be registered for street use... LOL

Pretty sweet to know that if i ever get the urge to buy a new bike I'll still be able to pick up an awesome two stroke though... Keep up the good work!

There were lots of 2 stroke street bikes in the 70s/80s.....I don't think simply being 2 stroke would prevent you from registering a bike. There's a few plated 2 stroke mx bikes here, it would be awesome if the Service bikes could be made street legal. 500AF/SM? :aj: :aj:

it depends on the state,

I had a CR500AF ,super motard plated and street registered for a few years, until it got stolen..

I havnt super motarded out any of my personal bikes since then,but it was a true blast!
