Highlights of Latest update of the Kawasaki KX250X

Design of Kawasaki KX250X

Most of the design of the KX250X was created from scratch; however, it takes certain ideas from already existing motors.

The top end utilizes finger-followers between the valves and the cams to increase leverage and lift.

The extruded, forged, and cast components that make up the perimeter frame are lightweight and extruded. To provide light handling and traction, it is said that this offers the ideal balance of frame rigidity.

Riders can go as far as they like, thanks to the fuel tank’s flatter top shape.

The single-piece radiator shrouds, which aid in keeping the motorbike as small as possible, add to the motorcycle’s overall sense of slimness.

  • STD

Engine of Kawasaki KX250X

The Kawasaki KX250X sports a 249cc liquid-cooled four-stroke single engine that produces little under 40 HP power and slightly more than 24 Nm of torque.

Features of Kawasaki KX250X

Kawasaki KX250X has smooth-functioning finger-follower valve actuation. The electric start feature makes starting the engine easy with a push of a button.

The new KX250X is more attractive because of its dual injectors and coned disc-spring hydraulic clutch. A coned disc-spring hydraulic clutch offers a direct feel, light lever action, and consistent performance.

A sleek, lightweight chassis, similar to the one found on the KX250 motocross bike, allows for light and agile handling. A balanced aluminum perimeter frame that allows for thin ergonomics helps to keep the overall weight low.

Launch Control Mode allows riders to reach the bike’s controls readily. The Kawasaki KX250X is given a vintage KX series touch with a motocross ECU that can be adjusted in KX series fashion.

The bike has F21″/R18″ wheels and enduro-style tires, which give it the ideal finishing touch.

ERGO-FIT adjustable handlebar and footpeg settings are available for the rider’s comfort. The Kawasaki includes extra features, including a skid plate, a side stand, and a Renthal Fatbar in factory style.

The bike has an 18-inch rear wheel, Dunlop AT81 tires, a kickstand, a skid plate, and a rear disc guard. Kawasaki switches its EFI maps via the coupler system.

Accordingly, the ECU has three maps that may get switched between by switching electrical connectors.

Transmission, Suspension, and Brakes of Kawasaki KX250X

The Kawasaki KX250X includes a 5-speed, return shift transmission and a wet multi-disc manual clutch.

The KX250X has a front suspension of a 48mm inverted telescopic coil with adjustable compression and rebound damping. At the rear, the suspension duties are performed by a new uni Trak with adjustable dual-range (high and low speed) compression damping, adjustable rebound damping, and adjustable preload compression damping.

Large-diameter disc brakes provide powerful braking and a great degree of control.

A 270mm rotor in front and a 240mm rotor in the rear provide braking for the petal-type discs. The two-piston front caliper, the single-piston rear unit, the fore and aft master cylinders, and the remainder of the braking duties are handled by Nissin.
