- Kawasaki upgrades the 250’s Separate Function Fork (SFF), with claims of “improved rigidity and less stiction.” Built by Showa, the SFF design divvies out spring and damping duties to the separate fork legs.
- The KX250 also sports a new stainless steel exhaust, with shorter header and resonator chamber claiming to boost bottom-end power and cut down on noise.

- Big news is the Pneumatic Spring Fork (PSF) from KYB. The PSF design replaces traditional coil springs with pressurized air. The pneumatic system promises to reduce friction and oil contamination and it shaves weight by 1.7 pounds. The new fork can be tuned via hand pump.
- There have also been refinements to the 450F braking system, with a new master cylinder and 240mm rear rotor.
