To offer outstanding performance, the KLX250’s fuel injection system utilises an ultra-fine atomising (10-hole) injector. The result is a very smooth engine character, especially in the rpm range most used in day-to-day riding. From the mid-range onward, the engine revs quickly and easily. Furthermore, the fuel injection contributes to clean emissions, easier starting and improved fuel economy.


The 43 mm inverted cartridge-style front fork comes with 16-way compression damping adjustment. The cartridge provides consistent damping force by minimising aeration of the fork oil. KX-style fork guards protect the inner tubes from rocks and vegetation. Uni-Trak rear suspension provides great road holding ability and bump absorption. The gas-charged shock with remote reservoir has 16-way compression and rebound damping and fully adjustable preload adjustability. An all new linkage and revised damping settings reduce some of the bike’s front-rear pitching motion, resulting in increased straight-line stability and a more planted feel in corners.


Lower seat height (due to the suspension’s reduced stroke) makes it easier for riders to reach the ground with their feet, for added confidence when stopped. A revised handlebar is straighter and moves the hand position up and in. The more relaxed position makes the bike easier to ride and control. Footpegs are positioned close to the bike’s centreline for a slim riding position perfect for both on and off-road riding. A new seat shape and stiffer urethane make it easier to change seating position.


The KLX250’s box- and tubular-section high-tensile steel perimeter frame creates a slim, lightweight package. The 26.5 degree caster angle and short wheelbase contribute to quick handling, while the high rigidity of the frame ensures straight-line stability. The new lightweight, highly rigid aluminium D-section swingarm contributes to reduced unsprung weight. New KX racing-type chain adjusters allow precise adjustment of chain slack, helping to minimise drivetrain power transfer loss.


Late-model sport bikes often use large-bore throttle bodies to generate high levels of power. However, with large diameter throttles, when a rider suddenly opens the throttle, the unrestricted torque response is anything but gentle and often more than the rider can handle. Dual throttle valve technology was designed to tame engine response while contributing to performance. On fuel-injected models, throttle bodies generally have only one throttle valve per cylinder. On models with dual throttle valves, there are two throttle valves per cylinder: in addition to the main valves, which are physically linked to the throttle grip and controlled by the rider, a second set of valves, opened and closed by the ECU, precisely regulates intake airflow to ensure a natural, linear response. With the air passing through the throttle bodies becoming smoother, combustion efficiency in improved and power is increased. Like other Kawasaki engine management technology, Dual Throttle Valves were designed with the philosophy of "following the rider's intention, while providing natural-feeling support." They are featured on many Kawasaki models.
