Hi everyone, today we will mention the features of the 2020 Kawasaki KX250. Let’s see what is new at Kawasaki KX250. Also we will talk about the price and performance of Kawasaki KX250 in this article.
First of all, everyone was expecting a major redesign for this bike but the bike got the changes it really needed and nothing else.
Kawasaki already had a great 250 motocross bike. Too many races has been won with Kawasaki but in recent years it hasn’t won shootouts because of one reason: it was not fast enough. Except the speed, everything was great for this motocross bike.
This bike was the lightest of the Japanese 250 four-strokes and it had more low-rpm torque than others. Also beginners absolutely loved this bike. Because of these, a total redesign not expected. Kawasaki’s upper management decided that they should do some differences for more speed without redesign.
Except those, the price have to be the same with 2019 models or the number of customers will decrease. The only problem with this model is that bike would not have electric start or a hydraulic clutch like KX450.
The plan was adding a new valve configuration. Kawasaki redesigned the motor to use finger-followers, this findger-followers allows for more aggressive tuning.
Kawasaki also use some existing parts. The bore and stroke are changed from 77.0 x 53.6mm to 78.0 x 52.2mm. This change provides more room for bigger valves. Also air intake is larger and straigther and there are mapping changes. Other things that are the same.
