Kawasaki KLX250
0 Comments

Kawasaki is known for crafting high-quality motorcycles, superbikes, and scooters that can whip their riders down asphalt and tarmac tracks at breakneck speeds, but the company is also known for producing great dual-purpose motorcycles such as the KLX250.

Kawasaki in a Nutshell

The history of Kawasaki is a long one filled with awards and accolades. For more than 100 years, Kawasaki has been producing high quality motors for cars, airplanes, motorcycles, or anything else that needed an engine, though nowadays they tend to stick to motorcycles.

After having produced countless supersports and high-performance motorcycles, Kawasaki decided to expand a different sector of their market share: dual-purpose motorcycles. This was to be done with the addition of the KLX250 to Kawasaki’s dual-purpose repertoire in 2009.

Dual-Purpose Design

In order to enable the KLX250 to shine both on-road and off-road, the engineers at Kawasaki needed to design a motorcycle with a lightweight frame, at least decent horsepower, and lots of torque.

To do so, the team went the standard single-cylinder route for such bikes and fitted a tubular semi-double cradle frame with a four-stroke, DOHC, 4-valve engine for a total combined wet weight of only 304.3 pounds.

Two Generations

The Kawasaki KLX250 has undergone one major redesign in its history, culminating in a total of only two generations.

Kawasaki KLX250 (2006-2007)

The design of the first models of the KLX250 line-up set the trend for the future models. It incorporated a sealed chain drive into the frame as well as a high-quality Uni-Track suspension system with 16-way compression and rebound-damping adjustment capabilities.

Kawasaki KLX250 (2009-2014 / 2018-present)

In 2009, the KLX250 models were retrofitted with an all-digital instrument console, sturdier seats, and a frame that was less prone to vibrations and rattles at higher speeds.

These dual-purpose motorcycles are capable of producing enough torque to render even a couple inches of mud as fun to ride on as a solid, flat, and stable asphalt highway.

News

The majority of the news surrounding the Kawasaki KLX250 still pertains to the return of the model into production in 2018 after several years of fading into discontinuation.

Fortunately, with the announcement of the new 2020 model, it doesn’t look like there’s going to be a second discontinuation any time soon.

TV and Film Appearances

The Kawasaki brand is no stranger to the entertainment industry. Many Kawasaki models have been included in TV and film productions and the KLX250 is no exception. The KLX250 has appeared in about a dozen films and television shows.

These are also the motorcycles of choice or the Japan Ground Self-Defence Force military personnel.

Social Groups

If you’re looking to join a kawasaki motorcycle fan group dedicated to the KLX250 then look no further than the Facebook page titled Kawasaki KLX250, which has more than 2,000 members. Of course, there are other groups as well, if this one doesn’t satisfy your personal requirements.

Kawasaki KLX250 – An Off-Roading Masterpiece

The Kawasaki KLX250 is one of the top-of-the-line dual-purpose motorcycles and is produced by one of the top-of-the-line superbike producers in the world. Needless to say, this combination led to the creation of a real masterpiece.
