Kawasaki KX250F


2011 Kawasaki claims that suspension work should be simpler and potentially cheaper since only one fork could potentially need service. A re-valve would only require half the shims  half the oil  etc.
For 2011 the Kawasaki R&D team was hard at work with the Lites-class racer giving the KX250F membership to the fuel-injection club.
The Kawasaki KX250F is the most successful 250F motocross bike in professional AMA racing. As the bike of choice for Pro Circuit’s Supercross and motocross race teams, the KX250F has racked up more titles than any other machine in the small-bore division. Born from a joint effort with Suzuki, the KX250F started bleeding true Kawasaki green in 2006 and has been part of the pure Kawasaki motocross lineup ever since.

Kawasaki really went to work on the KX250F in 2011 and whipped it into fighting shape to remain at the forefront of motocross racing. All-new digital fuel injection with 43mm Keihin throttle body feeds a potent 249cc liquid-cooled, four-stroke engine. The single-cylinder powerplant uses dual overhead cams and our test riders constantly rave about the KX250F’s wide power delivery. This dirt bike is so popular because it has the engine muscle to suit a wide range of motocross racers.

Kawasaki has made many of the components on the KX250F similar to its big sibling, the KX450F. Essentially it’s just a smaller version with a compact aluminum chassis that handles near the top of its class. One thing that is unique to the 250F is a completely new Showa suspension package. The Separate Function Fork allows riders to tune their fork preload as easily as compression or rebound. Because the SFF is revolutionary on a production motocross bike, the KX250F is even more attractive to riders on the cutting edge.

MotorcycleUSA Shootouts have always been a strong point for the KX250F where it finishes in top positions year after year. The five-speed transmission propels the Kawasaki KX250F around any motocross track and comfortable, neutral ergonomics allow riders to get as aggressive as they want. Components like petal-style brake rotors and black rims give the Kawasaki an edge on dealership floors simply because it looks so good. Between the professional racing track record, plenty of magazine successes and a legion of die-hard Team Green riders, the KX250F has proven itself a capable winner. Plus, Kawasaki riders typically have one of the better contingency programs to pull from so the KX250F is the perfect way to take advantage of it.
