KX250

TBC

The winning edge.

The KX design philosophy – to put mid-level to expert riders on the top step of the podium – has not changed since the brand was launched over 40 years ago. Designed to continue its history of winning – in the extremely competitive 4-stroke 250cc class Kawasaki race machines have the most AMA Supercross and Motocross titles – the 2020 model KX250 features a new engine with increased power, an even more potent high-rpm range, and a higher rev limit. Complemented by a lightweight, well-balanced chassis with a new fork and stronger brakes, this performance advantage translates to quicker lap times, making it the quickest KX250 to date.

FEATURES

FACTORY STYLING

Complementing the KX250’s sleek, minimalistic bodywork, factory-style graphics ensure it is the sharpest looking bike in the paddock and further reflect its highly-tuned performance. Green highlights on the suspension adjusters and engine oil cap and generator cover plugs contribute to a distinctive Kawasaki look.

POWERFUL, HIGH-REVVING, LIQUID-COOLED ENGINE

Highly acclaimed for its high output and smooth power delivery, the 2020 KX250’s new engine features even stronger high-rpm focused performance and increased power. New bore and stroke offer the space for larger intake and exhaust valves, while finger-follower valve actuation like the KX450 enables a higher rev limit and more aggressive cams.

ERGONOMICS

The narrow frame and minimalistic bodywork offer a slim riding position that facilitates control. Complemented by ERGO-FIT adjustable handle and footpeg positions, the natural riding position makes it easy for racers to go fast. The seat uses a slip-resistant top surface for good grip when seated and smooth sides for excellent rider mobility.

LARGE-DIAMETER COIL-SPRING FORK

Handling suspension duties up front is a new high performance ø48 mm inverted coil-spring fork. The large diameter inner tubes enable the use of large damping pistons, delivering smooth action and firm damping. Increased front-end feel and an overall increase in stability facilitate machine control on rough surfaces.

STRONGER BRAKES

A larger-diameter ø250 mm rear disc complements the oversized ø270 mm front disc, delivering stronger stopping power. New front brake pad material offers increased controllability.

FINGER-FOLLOWER VALVE ACTUATION

Like the KX450, the KX250 features a valve train designed by Kawasaki’s World Superbike engineers. Finger-follower valve actuation enables a higher rev limit (increased 500 min-1), and more aggressive cams for harder-hitting power.
