2018 Kawasaki KX250F | Technical Briefing

More Than Meets the Eye


Last year, Kawasaki gave its KX250F plenty of refinement to bring it up to speed with the 450. For that reason, we weren’t expecting much change to come to the 2018 model. On the surface, it appears to be the same bike, but Kawasaki actually made quite a few changes internally to the suspension, motor, and beyond. We had read about some of these improvements in the initial 2018 release and had heard about them when we arrived at Cahuilla, but wanted to get the full scoop on the bike straight from the manufacturer. Croft Long, Product Manager for motorcycles at Kawasaki, filled us in on all of the details.
