Updated engine features a new finger-follower valve actuation, a valve train designed by Kawasaki’s World Superbike engineers and enables a higher rev limit, and more aggressive cams for harder-hitting power.
A new short-stroke configuration lends itself to high rpm-focused engine character, while the larger bore allows larger intake and exhaust valves, enabling greater airflow for increased high-rpm performance. A new bridged-box bottom piston contributes to a higher compression ratio, while a revised airbox and intake duct, larger diameter throttle body, and updated exhaust system further contribute to increased engine performance.
New 249cc liquid-cooled, four-stroke single is the most powerful four-stroke KX250™ to date. Increased peak power helps you take the lead and stay in front with quicker lap times as you power towards the finish line.
In the front, an oversized semi-floating 270mm Braking petal disc and dual-piston caliper with new brake pad materials offer solid control.
In the rear, a new larger-diameter 250mm Braking petal disc and new lighter-weight master cylinder give you the stopping power to get ahead.
Stunning high-rpm power calls for superior stopping power to match, and the KX250 features its most powerful and highest feedback brakes yet. As champions can attest, power and control help bring home titles.
A new larger diameter coil-spring 48mm KYB front fork offers improved action at the initial part of the stroke. The large-diameter inner tubes enable the use of large 25mm damping pistons for smooth action and firm damping.
Uni-Trak rear suspension with a new KYB shock featuring dual compression (high-speed and low-speed damping) adjustability helps soak up whatever the track throws your way.
Decades of championship-winning experience stand behind the suspension of the KX250 motorcycle.
Optimized frame rigidity with a new front engine mount contributes to smoother rear suspension performance for maximum bump absorption and increased traction. The center of gravity and key frame dimensions are optimized for maximum forward drive from the rear wheel.
Kawasaki class-leading ERGO-FIT adjustability allows riders to find their optimal fit and comfort with four-way adjustable handlebar positions and two footpeg positions to choose from.
Slim aluminum perimeter frame is a lightweight construction composed of forged, extruded and cast parts contributing to light, nimble handling.
