1986 Kawasaki Tecate KXT250 3 Wheeler

Throwback to a legend

While scrolling through our archives, we came across these beautiful studio images of the 1986 Kawasaki Tecate ATC 3-Wheeler. The original Tecate 3 was released in 1984. The name recalled the rugged terrain of Baja, and this machine had the performance to match. High-tech features included a liquid-cooled 249 cm 2-stroke engine, a large-capacity fuel tank, powerful front and rear disc brakes, and lightweight aluminum wheels mounting computer-designed tyres. In 1986, an upgraded version of the Tecate ATV (featured) arrived. It was loaded with technology from KX motocrossers.
