EVEN MORE POWERFUL KX250: STRONGEST 4-STROKE 250 ON THE RACE TRACK

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 2021 model KX250 builds on the engine changes from the previous year to deliver even greater power and an even higher rev limit, plus electric start and a hydraulic clutch. A new frame based on that of the KX450 contributes to improved handling that enables even quicker lap times, making the KX250 even more potent on the track.

FEATURES

LIGHTWEIGHT ALUMINIUM PERIMETER FRAME

New KX450-based frame contributes to the KX250’s light weight, light handling, and slim ergonomics. Along with the new swingarm (also from the KX450), the new frame offers improved handling and increased rear wheel traction.

POWERFUL, HIGH-REVVING, LIQUID-COOLED ENGINE

Despite the 2020 KX250 already benefiting from a significant power increase thanks to its adoption of finger-follower valve actuation like the KX450, additional changes for 2021 raise peak power even further and enable an even higher rev limit, while significantly increasing low-mid rpm performance. As before, dual injectors, down draft style intake, and race inspired tuning and parts
add to performance.

HYDRAULIC CLUTCH

Like the KX450, a hydraulic clutch offers direct feel and light lever action. Less play as the clutch heats up during heavy use results in more consistent feeling. The use of coned-disc springs contributes to lighter clutch actuation when the lever has been pulled in, and a wider clutch engagement range, which facilitates control (especially when half-clutching). Friction plates with offset (slightly rotated) segments promote clean separation of the discs and help to reduce drag when the clutch is pulled in.

ELECTRIC START

Being able to restart an engine quickly during a race can mean the difference between keeping your lead, or having to fight your way back through the pack. Electric start makes restarting the engine as easy as pushing a button.

LIGHTWEIGHT FRAME & NEW SWINGARM

An evolution of the current design, the new frame offers a better overall rigidity balance. While many parts are common with the KX450’s frame, the cast parts (like the shock tower mount and engine hangers) were designed specifically
for the needs of the KX250. KX450 swingarm delivers the rigidity to match the frame, and contributes to increased rear traction.

FINE-TUNED SUSPENSION AND BRAKE COMPONENTS

Updated suspension settings contribute to increased bump absorption and traction, while minor brake component revisions enhance controllability. A smaller-diameter rear disc (ø250 mm >> ø240 mm) offers performance optimised for the KX250, contributing to controllability.
