KLX 250S



    Single-cylinder 249cc DOHC Engine
    • Compact engine design is lightweight and high revving, with a broad torque curve
    • Good mass centralization for superior handling
    • Flat-top piston and pentroof combustion chamber deliver an 11:1 compression ratio
    • Lightweight piston, piston pin and connecting rod enable higher revs for maximum power
    • Aluminum cylinder features electrofusion coating, which allows a tight piston-cylinder clearance for greater horsepower and offers increased engine life thanks to superior heat transfer and lubrication retention properties
    • A gear-driven engine balancer provides smooth power delivery from idle to redline
    Liquid Cooling
    • Dual high-capacity, vertical-flow Denso radiators provide reliable and efficient engine cooling
    • Radiators feature tightly packed cores and a fin design for excellent heat dispersion
    • More consistent engine temperatures allow tighter engine clearances for quieter running and sustained power, while promoting longer engine life
    • Cooling fan is powered by a shallow-footprint electric motor
    Four Valve Cylinder Head
    • Provides maximum valve area for optimum flow to boost low end torque while providing improved high-rpm breathing efficiency for more power
    Revised carburetor settings
    • 34mm semi-flat slide Keihin CVK carburetor delivers the optimum amount of fuel at all rpm, contributing to improved response and power, as well as good fuel economy
    • A new evaporative emissions system that meets strict CARB regulations means the KLX250S is now available in California
    Electric Starting
    • Quick and easy push-button starting
    • Kawasaki Automatic Compression Release (KACR) automatically lifts one of the exhaust valves at cranking rpm, for reduced starting effort
    Exhaust system
    • Secondary air system helps provide clean emissions
    • USFS-approved spark arrester allows the KLX250S to access designated off-road public riding areas
    Updated Six-speed Transmission
    • Allows engine's full potential to be used
    • Provides excellent acceleration as well as relaxed highway cruising
    • Gear ratios amended to set 6th gear closer to 5th for improved performance
    • Revised shift cam offers better feeling and allows gears to click into place with more precision
    Improved Inverted Front Forks
    • 43mm inverted cartridge fork offers excellent rigidity and consistent damping performance
    • Reduced travel to 10.0 in. for increased straight-line stability, improved handling in corners and a lower seat height
    • 16-Way compression damping adjustment allows tuning for differences in rider weight or various terrain profiles
    UNI-TRAK® Rear Suspension
    • All new linkage and revised damping settings reduce front-rear pitching motions
    • Rear wheel travel reduced to 9.1 in, for increased straight-line stability, improved handling in corners and a lower seat height
    • Progressive linkage rate provides a smooth ride and excellent bottoming resistance
    • The gas-charged shock features 16-way adjustable compression and rebound damping and remote reservoir
    Diamond Frame
    • Lightweight, high-tensile steel for amazing rigidity
    • No down tubes for lower engine placement and lower center of gravity
    • Still has ample ground clearance
    • New lightweight, aluminum D-section swingarm is highly rigid and reduces unsprung weight
    • New KX racing-type chain adjusters allow precise adjustment to minimize drivetrain power losses
    Enhanced Ergonomics
    • Revised handlebar is straighter and offers a more relaxed position and effortless control
    • Footpegs are positioned close to the bike's centerline
    • New seat shape and stiffer urethane makes it easier to change seating position
    New Bodywork
    • Aggressive new look courtesy of a new headlight and front fender design
    • Two-piece radiator shrouds styled like the KX motocrossers
    • Rear fender is a two-piece unit featuring a sharp tail light design that offers increased visibility and further contributes to the KLX's aggressive styling
    Narrow Fuel Tank
    • Narrow tank design gives riders maximum comfort and control without sacrificing capacity
    Digital instrumentation
    • All-digital instrument console gives at-a-glance information that includes a digital bar-graph tachometer, digital speedometer, clock, and dual trip meters
    Petal disc brakes
    • Front and rear disc brakes offer impressive stopping performance
    • Twin-piston caliper grips a 250 mm petal disc up front
    • Increased rear brake control provided by a revised lever ratio, new pad material and different caliper
    • 240mm rear petal disc is 20mm larger than the old model
    • New 4.0mm spokes offer increased wheel rigidity for greater off-road durability
    • Tires feature smaller blocks for longer tire life and increased grip on asphalt
