They can kinda get used to everything else. And then the biggest thing with this is it has no clutch, but it does have a transmission which you can shift. So let's talk about that for a second. So if you're good alert to ride a motorcycle or dirt bike or any kind, you should learn to shift gears. Now the clutch could be intimidating for kids especially because it can cause the vehicle to stall or anything else. Well this one still has a gear shifter but no clutch. So we'll talk about how that works. Basically, your kid can shift on their own up and down and they need to, but they don't have to activate the clutch. So from a stop, it's just throttle and go. But they will run out of gear, they'll get a into first gear and there's a four speed transmission here where they can upshift up to fourth gear and then bring it back down as they slow down. If they try to stop in fourth gear, the vehicle will stall. So you still have essentially a manual transmission exactly like a real dirt bike, but you don't have to worry about, you
On the right side handlebar, you can see that there is that front brake lever right there. Now again, not linked brake. So just like a regular dirt bike front brake here, rear brake is on your foot. You've got your throttle here with what appears to be a limiter there. So you can sort of limit that throttle, keep it kind of covered up there, but that's why there's no uh, kill switch there. A little harder to reach around that you can get that kill switch on the opposite side. So we talked about that front brake lever. Well what is it attached to? These are actually drum brakes in here. Now drum brakes are not something that's very common on the front of motorcycles anymore, but they used to be my first road bike, my first highway going street road, legal road bike actually had drum brakes front and rear.
The benefit with drum brakes is first of all, on something like this, they're gonna last forever. You need a disc brake when you have higher speeds and that kind of thing. Uh, it helps dissipate heat but these are gonna last a long, long time and no debris or or junk or anything else can get in between the brake pads and the brake because everything's inside here. So they're both easy to adjust, easy to deal with, easy to maintain, but also something that just kind of is very durable in a sense that if there's dirt around this area, which of course there will be, it's never gonna interfere with the brake. So very simple braking system and it's uh, drum brakes front and rear on this bike. Take a look at the rear of the bike on the chain side. You can see you've got a lot of good things going on right here.
First of all, chain guard, chain protector, all there. So just a little things to keep the moving parts away from anybody who's not familiar with moving parts when they get on this for the very first time. You've also got a kickstand and even the uh, spring on the kickstand is covered by a little rubbery type uh, cover there just to keep that from pinching anything. So you've got a lot of sort of protection to keep unfamiliar hands and feet, uh, away from things that can pinch and things that are moving. So really nice little safety features built in there. Obviously you still have to keep um, you know, your kids. Uh, it's a learning process to learn these things but you've got a nice sort of in between stage where they can learn everything but also be safe while they do that. One other small safety feature to that I'd like to mention here is, although these aren't lighted, they're not road legal, they're off road vehicles only. Just like all of our other dirt bikes, they do have reflectors here. There's a reflector out front on both sides there. There's a reflector out back and on the very back. So if you are in an area where there are vehicles around uh, and you've got headlights on, you will have
So I'm filming this one just so you have a different perspective. These, I don't know if they're reflective or not, they might have some reflectivity, but those are obviously looking like headlights. They are a little different. You still got reflectors over here. Big thing I like here is you've got this nice steel frame that comes all the way out. So if you're coming over obstacles and maybe you're hitting something, you know, a little dead center, you have your ability to have this, lift the vehicle, send everything under the wheels, and you've got good Kawasaki strength here. You've got the variable rate springs up here, good solid, uh, strong steering out front. You've got a lot of toughness built into this. Now this is a rear wheel drive, not an all-wheel drive atv. So you still have the ability to have, you know, no power up here and you can have some fun with the rear end with this.
And of course you can govern the speed on this as well. Let's take a look at the back end. So on the back end here, we have a chain driven single axle system. So it's not an independent suspension, just a single suspension in the middle. Interestingly, instead of the drum brakes, like on the dirt bike, we have a disc brake system here. And again, although this isn't road legal, you do have a brake light as well as a reflector right over here. So safety is built in. Now one other safety piece that's built in is this little strap right here. This strap can be used if you're walking behind this when your child is learning to ride it. And what's cool about this is you can set the speed to go very, very slow and this would be a kill switch. So if you hold this sort of like a leash and they get away from you, you can pull it out and it will actually work as the kill switch.
Well, if your kid buys one of these ATVs or if they buy a motorcycle, although really it's you buying it for them, this comes with it. Everybody who buys an ATV or power sport of any kind here gets a Freddy of the frog or a teddy bear if you buy a vehicle, which is kind of fun. And I made a deal that if you buy one of these and quote the vehicle, I will throw in an extra Freddy of the frog with both of them. So you have a fun place for kids to shop here. There's all kinds of fun things, there's tons of selection and this is a very kid friendly place. There's things like popcorn and there's arcade games and all kinds of things. So they can both come check out their future ride, but they can also have fun while they're here.
