2020 Kawasaki KX250 Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits
The Best Gets Better
New 249cc liquid-cooled, four-stroke single is the most powerful four-stroke KX™250 to date. Increased peak power helps you take the lead and stay in front with quicker lap times as you power towards the finish line.
Strong Force & Control
In the front, an oversized semi-floating 270mm Braking® petal disc and dual-piston caliper with new brake pad materials offer solid control.
A Superior Stop
In the rear, a new larger-diameter 250mm Braking® petal disc and new lighter-weight master cylinder give you the stopping power to get ahead.
Consistency & Control
Stunning high-rpm power calls for superior stopping power to match, and the KX™250 features its most powerful and highest feedback brakes yet. As champions can attest, power and control help bring home titles.
Attack the Track
A new larger diameter coil-spring 48mm KYB front fork offers improved action at the initial part of the stroke. The large-diameter inner tubes enable the use of large 25mm damping pistons for smooth action and firm damping.
Push With Confidence
Uni-Trak® rear suspension with a new KYB shock featuring dual compression (high-speed and low-speed damping) adjustability helps soak up whatever the track throws your way.
Your Ride Awaits
Decades of championship-winning experience stand behind the suspension of the KX™250 motorcycle.
Optimized Frame Rigidity
Optimized frame rigidity with a new front engine mount contributes to smoother rear suspension performance for maximum bump absorption and increased traction. The center of gravity and key frame dimensions are optimized for maximum forward drive from the rear wheel.
Find Your Fit
Kawasaki class-leading ERGO-FIT® adjustability allows riders to find their optimal fit and comfort with four-way adjustable handlebar positions and two footpeg positions to choose from.
Slim and Lightweight
Slim aluminum perimeter frame is a lightweight construction composed of forged, extruded and cast parts contributing to light, nimble handling.
