PERFORMANCE FRAME AND REAR SUSPENSION
Lightweight, high-tensile steel for amazing rigidity. No downtubes allow for lower engine placement and lower center of gravity as well as ample ground clearance. Lightweight, aluminum D-section swingarm is highly rigid and reduces unsprung weight. KX™ racing-type chain adjusters allow precise adjustment.
Long rear wheel travel for straight-line stability, great handling and a low seat height. Progressive linkage rate provides a smooth ride and excellent bottoming resistance. The gas-charged remote-reservoir shock features 18-way adjustable compression and rebound damping.
All digital instrument console gives at a glance information featuring a digital bar graph tachometer, digital speedometer, clock, and dual trip meters.
The compact 249cmÂ³, liquid-cooled, four-stroke, single-cylinder engine features a four-valve, dual overhead cam head atop an electrofusion coated aluminium cylinder producing impressive power and torque delivering smooth, tractable acceleration.
The KLX250S’s box and tubular section high tensile steel perimeter frame creates a slim, lightweight package. The 26.5Â° caster angle and short wheelbase contribute to quick handling, while the high rigidity of the frame ensures straight line stability.
EASY ELECTRIC STARTING
Enjoy easy, trouble-free starting thanks to a reliable, electric starter facilitated by Kawasaki Automatic Compression Release (KACR), which automatically opens an exhaust valve to lower compression and enable easy cranking.
KLX-spec handlebar for a more relaxed position and effortless control. Footpegs are positioned close to the bike’s centerline for rider control. KLX-spec seat shape and foam make it easier to change seating position.
43mm inverted cartridge fork offers excellent rigidity and consistent damping performance. Long front wheel travel means straight-line stability, great handling and a low seat height. 16-way compression damping adjustment allows tuning for differences in rider weight and terrain.
