Upgraded and Ready to Fight for Championships

Take a look at the record books and you’ll see that no other 250 cubic centimeter motocross bike in the modern four-stroke era has earned more championship titles in AMA Supercross and Motocross than the Kawasaki KX™ 250F. The 2014 KX250F's championship-winning technology includes a new Launch Control system, a plug-and-play adjustable ECU, Separate Function Fork (SFF), new motor mounts, revised suspension tuning and an upgraded transmission. Make no mistake, the KX250F is still the dominant player in the 250 cubic centimeter ranks. Ride anything else, and you’ll just be playing catch-up.

 Showa Separate Function Fork (SFF) provides progressive damping force and features 48 mm inner fork tubes for rigidity  
 Dual injector Digital Fuel Injection (DFI®) system  
 High-rpm engine output extends deep into the overrev  
 High-tensile steel front engine mount plates are 29 percent thinner than last year’s steel plates and offer a better mix of chassis rigidity, improved feedback and superior front-end grip  
 Transmission gears feature 4 dogs instead of 3, for enhanced shift smoothness  
 Shift-fork grooves are more-direct to enhance feel at the shift lever  
 Counter-shaft and sprocket retainer design now uses a nut and washer instead of a clip, for a more positive sprocket–to–countershaft interface and simplified sprocket swaps  
 Upgraded crankcase oil jet delivers an optimized stream of oil to the underside of the piston, for enhanced cooling  
 Revised throttle body tuning improves airflow from a closed-throttle, for a smoother idle and enhanced low-end response  
 Revised piston tuning in the left fork leg enhances damping performance through the initial and mid-stroke  
 Revised rear shock settings provide a more comfortable “baseline” for a wide range of riders  
 Grips feature shorter barrels and are made from a softer material to enhance rider comfort  
High-revving, High Performance Engine
 249 cc, liquid-cooled, 4-stroke, 4-valve, 1-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  
 Upgraded crankcase oil jet delivers an optimized stream of oil to the underside of the piston, for enhanced cooling  
 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  
Factory-style Launch Control System
 Launch Control is a first for the 250 class and increases ability to get good starts, by maximizing available traction  
 Launch Control is activated by pushing a button on the left handlebar while stopped, in neutral, first or second gear  
 Retards ignition timing in first and second gears, giving the greatest effect within the first few seconds of releasing the clutch  
 Shifting into third gear automatically deactivates Launch Control Mode and returns the ignition to normal mapping  
 Particularly effective when chasing the holeshot from concrete starting pads and other slippery surfaces  
Digital Fuel Injection (DFI) System
 Intake tract designed to provide optimal 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 for sharp and precise throttle response across entire rpm range  
 Simple and Efficient System: No battery, fuses or relays  
 Offers easy engine starting  
 Helps prevent engine hesitation after landing from jumps and other high-impact situations  
Bridged Box-bottom Piston
 Piston profile helps increase reliability compared to non-box-bottom design  
 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
 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
 Head pipe resonator chamber helps boost low-rpm torque  
 High-volume muffler assembly features a large cross section to keep noise levels at 94 dB while retaining power production
