2015 Kawasaki KX250F

2015 Kawasaki KX250F
MSRP $8,699

The Kawasaki KX250F runs on the 249cc liquid-cooled engine and the Single receives the Bridged Box piston. Kawasaki notes that the new piston design is heavier, but the weight gain is offset by a lighter piston pin. The KX250F also employs a heavier magneto rotor, with greater inertia to match claims of increased acceleration. The dual injection system includes an upstream and downstream injector, while the Kawasaki X250F features three engine maps (Standard, Hard and Soft) via DFI coupler cap, and the ECU is fully programmable as well.
