Refined Champion Slims-Down to Chase Another Title

For almost a decade, no other bike has spent more time on AMA Supercross and Motocross podiums than the Kawasaki KX™250F. The race-proven technology of the quarter-liter motocross leader returns for 2013, with an all-new plug-and-play adjustable ECU, narrower new frame, upgraded Separate Function Fork (SFF) fork and slimmer ergonomics, so the KX250F is poised to continue its class dominance in 2013.

Standard Features

At a Glance…
 Upgraded Showa Separate Function Fork (SFF) provides more progressive damping force and features larger-diameter 48 mm inner fork tubes for improved rigidity and less stiction  
 Dual injector Digital Fuel Injection system  
 More robust high-rpm engine output extends deep into the overrev  
 Stronger engine components improve reliability  
High-revving, High Performance Engine
 249 cc, liquid-cooled, four-stroke, four-valve, single-cylinder DOHC engine delivers hard-hitting power across the rpm range  
 Nickel plating on the cylinder wall has a high adhesion factor for optimum durability  
 Thick-stem connecting rod resists flex and enhances durability  
 Thick crank web design features a balance factor on par with the factory racers to help minimize engine vibration, provide smooth power delivery and maximize performance in the mid-high rpm range  
Digital Fuel Injection (DFI) System
 Revised intake tract provides a straighter shot into the combustion chamber for more direct airflow from the airbox into the combustion chamber  
 Seal between air inlet port and throttle position sensor unit on the 43 mm throttle body protects TPS sensor from fuel penetration  
 Progressive throttle linkage opens more quickly after 3/8 open position  
 Simple and efficient system: No battery, fuses or relays  
 Sharp and precise engine response across entire rpm range  
 Offers easy engine starting  
 Helps prevent engine hesitation after landing from jumps and other high-impact situations  
Bridged-box Bottom Piston
 Revised piston profile helps increase reliability  
 Light and strong piston shares same design as the factory racers, and a tin plating to optimize its interface with the nickel plating on the cylinder wall  
 Special finish improves surface lubrication and wear-resistance  
 Short piston pin reduces reciprocating weight  
Lightweight and Efficient Top End
 Stronger intake valve seat material offers increased durability  
 Ultra-light valves have extremely thin valve stems on par with those found in supersport machines; intake valves feature thick heads for increased strength  
 Special casting method leaves the intake port surfaces extremely smooth for optimum intake efficiency across the rev range  
 Silicon-coated head gasket provides excellent sealing  
Stainless Steel Exhaust System
 New 30 mm shorter head pipe improves performance with a resonator chamber to help boost low-rpm torque  
 New high-volume muffler assembly is 30 mm shorter with a larger cross section keeps noise levels at 94 dB while retaining power production  
 Durable stainless steel construction  
Efficient Cooling System
 Thick radiators are strong and offer excellent resistance to mud buildup while providing superb cooling performance  
 Cylinder head water jacket routes coolant to the front of the cylinder head for even cooling  
Transmission and Shifting
 Strong, beefy crankcases feature additional material around the engine mounts to help increase long-term durability  
 Clutch cable holder is integrated with the crankcase for accurate feel at the clutch lever  
 Scavenge oil filter screen can be accessed without splitting the crankcases, facilitating easier maintenance  
Quick-turning Chassis
 The KX250F’s slim and lightweight aluminum perimeter frame is 4 mm narrower for improved ergonomics and handling  
 Center of gravity and key dimensions such as swingarm pivot, output sprocket and rear axle locations designed to increase forward drive with minimal rear-end squat  
Upgraded SFF Fork
 Upgraded 48 mm Separate Function Fork (SFF) features new 1 mm larger inner fork tubes which allow the internal damping components to be larger, for firmer damping response and increased ride comfort  
 SFF design separates springing and damping functions for less weight, better performance, less stiction and easier adjustability  
 Super-hard titanium coating on the outer surface of the inner fork tubes reduces stiction and improves suspension action while also helping prevent scratches and tube damage  
 Friction-reducing Kashima Coat treatment on the inside of the outer fork tubes contributes to smoother suspension action  
 Wrap-around fork tube guards provide excellent protection for the inner tubes  
 Revised lower triple clamp open at the back for increased rigidity and improved fork action  
Uni-Trak® Rear Suspension
 Rear shock features dual compression adjustability, allowing high-speed and low-speed damping to be tuned separately  
 Features Kashima Coat on the inside cylinder wall for reduced friction and smoother suspension action  
 New swingarm uses a longer cast front section, tapered hydro-formed spars and forged chain adjusters  
 Uni-Trak® rear suspension linkage system mounts the suspension arm below the swingarm, allowing more rear suspension stroke and precise tuning  
 Linkage ratios for the Uni-Trak rear suspension match rear shock damping settings to achieve maximum rear wheel traction  
Rider Interface
 Bodywork components offer the rider a slim interface, making it easy for racers to feel comfortable and go fast  
 Formed using a double-injection molding process, the shrouds offer a slim design  
 New smaller side number plates also contribute to the slim package  
 Right side panel has an added passageway to help cool the silencer  
 Flatter design of the seat and tank offer greater freedom of movement  
 Frame is wider at the ankles to offer better grip and narrows near the bend below the seat to allow a slim riding position  
 Slim seat features upgraded polyurethane, designed for greater durability  
 Seat has a slip-resistant top and side surface for good grip when seated and while standing  
 50 mm wide (front to rear) footpegs offer superb grip and feel at the pegs  
 Clutch cable boot features a large quick adjuster, making it easy for riders to adjust play in the clutch cable while on the fly  
 Throttle grip has a one-piece collar that provides additional stability during throttle operation  
 Longer hand grips allow the rider to hold the bars closer to the centerline and are made of lower density material for improved rider comfort  
Factory-style Components
 New pushrod type front brake master cylinder and new brake pad material provide stronger brake force and enhanced feel  
 New rear brake pad material offers powerful braking performance  
 Lightweight black anodized rims, are durable and look just like the factory racers  
 Titanium coated inner fork tubes minimize stiction and look great  
 Front and rear petal brake discs help reduce unsprung weight, and the wave shape helps clean the brake pads for more efficient stopping performance  
 Rear caliper guard protects caliper from damage  
 Ribless rear hub and butted spokes further reduce unsprung weight  
 Renthal aluminum handlebar is standard equipment  
 Blue ignition cover plugs and oil filler cap match the blue accents on the factory race bikes  
 Factory-style graphics complement the KX250F’s highly tuned performance  
Additional Features
