Kawasaki has extended its line-up of off-road motorcycles with the launch of the KX250F. The new KX250F is a track only machine and thus you wouldn’t find the regular bits like the headlight and rear-view mirrors. Kawasaki claims than the new KX250F clocks improved lap times than the previous generation model. The motorcycle also gets launch control mode which offers maximum traction for that perfect start.
The 249 cc 4-stroke single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine now features updated cylinder head, intake cam and revised compression ratio which are claimed to offer better torque delivery across the rev range. The lightweight race-team-inspired bridged-box bottom piston is designed to optimize combustion efficiency and plateau cylinder honing to help reduce friction.
The dual-injector system with revised injector angles utilizes a downstream injector below the throttle valve and an upstream injector located near the airbox. Together, they contribute to more efficient filling of the cylinder to maximize power. The new 43mm throttle body are aimed to ensures sharp, responsive power.
The advanced separate function Showa fork design separates spring and damping functions for lightweight and fully adjustable performance while the fine-tuned suspension settings is claimed to deliver improved bump absorption and suspension action.
