A NEW KIND OF KX: KX250-BASED CROSS-COUNTRY RACER

The KX brand is no longer just for motocross! With the release of the 2021 KX250XC, Kawasaki brings KX performance to the cross-country scene. Based on the championship-winning KX250 motocrosser, the new cross-country racer boasts an arsenal of factory-style features along with the engine and chassis
performance that makes the KX250 such a potent off-road contender. XC-specific tuning for the engine, suspension and brakes, complemented by a 21”/18” wheel combination fitted with enduro-type tyres, and convenient standard features like a side stand and skid plate make the new KX250XC even more attractive for cross-country competitors.

FEATURES

POWERFUL, HIGH-REVVING ENGINE

The powerful fuel-injected 249 cm3 liquid-cooled, 4-stroke Single from the KX250 features finger-follower valve actuation, dual injectors and down draft style intake to deliver hard-hitting performance complemented by a robust low-mid range. Engine maps optimised for the XC scene deliver a broad spread of useable power and facilitate minute throttle control.

HYDRAULIC CLUTCH

Like the KX450 and KX250, 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).

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.

RACE-READY SUSPENSION

High-performance ø48 mm inverted coil-spring fork and New Uni Trak rear suspension come directly from the KX250. Spring rates and damping settings optimised for the XC scene offer increased feedback, especially when riding on aggressive trails. Kashima Coat creates a hard, low-friction surface on the fork outer tubes.

XC EQUIPMENT

Sturdy skid plate helps to protect the underside of the engine, and facilitates sliding over obstacles encountered on the trail. Convenient side stand comes in handy when stopping away from the paddock area.

LARGE DIAMETER BRAKES

KX250 brake package optimised for XC riding includes a large diameter ø270 mm front disc complemented by a ø240 mm disc at the rear, KX450-type front master cylinder and XC-specific pads, delivering strong stopping power and a high level of control.
