KX250

$13,295

The winning edge.

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. Dual injectors, downdraft-style intake, and race-inspired tuning and parts add to performance.

The new engine boasts an increase in peak power of approximately 2.4 kW (3.3 PS), and performance focused on the high-rpm range. The stronger high-rpm performance, easily noticeable from 10,000 min-1, gives riders an advantage on the straights, and, when combined with a higher rev limit, makes it easier to tie corners together for quicker lap times.

While maintaining the slim ergonomics and highly acclaimed light handling of its predecessor, the new KX250 offers an improved ability to soak up bumps care of a new KYB coil-spring fork and revised lower engine mounts that fine-tune the frame’s rigidity balance. The resultant increase in stability and more planted feel on rough terrain on straights and through corners deliver a superb balance of nimble handling and stability that make the new model an even more potent track weapon.

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.
