This bike is about the best bike you can get. This bike is the most fastest, most powerful and most torquey 250F I have ever ridden and is so light at the same time. It’s also super easy to get parts unlike the KTMs. They’re also easy to fix when broke. But they rarely ever break. Very sturdy and comfortable. It has so much power!!!
This bike is simply amazing. The new KX250f will destroy about any other brand named 250f’s out there. It’s unbelievable. The suspension and speed is all what it’s about. The cornering is perfect; you can take the tightest corners in a race to pass up SUZUKI, KTM, HONDA, YAMAHA and you can ride it all day. This bike rips! The Kawasaki will out last, out beat and out put any bikes on the market. If I were you I would switch from what you’re riding to the KX250f.
This bike is excellent. The power is smooth and there’s tons of torque. This bike flies perfectly on the track, has so much power and I love that it turns on first kick. It’s simply a blast to ride.
You just can’t argue with results. Kawasaki’s KX™250F motorcycle has been a dominant force in professional supercross and motocross racing over the last two years. Now, this world-beating machine gets even better, with a host of refinements offering improved shifting, quicker handling and boosted reliability.
The KX250F was a model of speed and consistency throughout the 2007 AMA Supercross Lites seasons, sweeping both the AMA West Region Supercross Lites and East Region Supercross Lites championships plus the National Arenacross titles. Now, the lessons learned on the racetrack come home to roost in the 2008 machine.
New crankcases provide increased rigidity in the areas surrounding the crankshaft, transmission input and transmission output shafts to transfer torque more-efficiently and improve overall durability in the toughest race conditions. A new shift lever, positioned three degrees higher, offers a finer spline pitch so that it can be adjusted more accurately and provides more-positive shifting.
To compliment the increased longitudinal rigidity introduced on the 2007 KX250F’s frame, the 2008 model features new engine mounts which use a 10mm longer spacer to reduce torsional rigidity. This new chassis rigidity balance provides even quicker steering, better rider feel and a boost in rear wheel traction.
Subtle suspension refinements improve suspension feel, turning response and bottoming resistance. These changes include smaller air passages at the top of the fork cartridges which provide an enhanced air “spring” effect for smoother compression damping, while .5mm thicker fork piston rods provide increased rigidity and smoother response through the middle of the suspension’s stroke. Updated settings in the rear shock provide a smoother mid-stroke response to compliment the changes in the front fork valving, while a slightly higher ride height provides quicker handling and a more aggressive feel.
The 2008 KX250F will be available in Kawasaki Lime Green, with factory-look black alumite coated rims standard.
Racers who ride their KX250F at designated events are eligible to receive support from Team Green™, Kawasaki’s amateur racing support program. Each year, Team Green provides regional support vehicles and highly trained technicians at more than 100 events, offering technical information and assistance to those who race Kawasaki products. Kawasaki also offers a comprehensive contingency program for amateur and professional riders who place well at designated events.
