Bike: 2018 Kawasaki KX250F

Kawasaki's quarter-litre model receives multiple revisions.

The Kawasaki KX250F returns for 2018 with a range of revisions to continue improving the recently-revamped model ahead of the upcoming racing season. Carrying over the lightweight, slim and rigid chassis design for 2018, the Kawasaki KX250F now features revised suspension and engine updates to further improve your lap-times.

The 2018 Kawasaki KX250F engine now features a new throttle body and fuel-injection angle for increased torque throughout the rev range. A new fuel-pump has also been fitted for increased output pressure to suit.

A new cylinder head with a revised intake tract and compression ratio of 13.4:11 is also featured for the new year, along with a new intake booth, a new intake camshaft and a new exhaust header with longer and larger piping.

The lightweight ECU now features revised settings for 2018 and the three DFI couplers, standard, hard and soft, remain a staple on the KX250F along with the option of using the KX FI Calibration Kit.

Remaining unchanged following the introduction of the all-new frame for 2017, the latest KX250F continues to use the slim design that contributes to a light and nimble handling motorcycle. New for 2018 to enhance the current frame design are fine-tuned front and rear suspension settings that deliver improved bump absorption to maximise handling performance.

The Showa 48mm Separate Function Fork (SFF) Type 2 with works-style internal construction is again featured on the KX250F for 2018, matched with a Showa shock fine-tuned for improved ride feel and traction.

Like the flagship 2018 KX450F, the new KX250F also features launch control for improved starting allowing riders to focus on their lines as the mode retards the ignition timing for maximum traction out of the gate.

For 2018 the Kawasaki KX250F also receives updated in-mold graphics and continues to offer the latest seamless bodywork. Pricing and availability on this new model is yet to be released locally, however in the meantime head to to stay up to date with the latest.
