2012 Kawasaki Stockman 250

Posted on by  

The 2013 Kawasaki Stockman 250 is a versatile motorcycle especially developed for the Australian market. The motorcycle is propelled by a 249.00 ccm, (15.19 cubic inches), single cylinder, four stroke engine that puts out a maximum power of 20.12 HP (14.7 kW) at 8000 RPM and 20.60 Nm (2.1 kgf-m or 15.2 ft.lbs) of torque at 6000 RPM. All this power is kept under control by a six speed transmission.

For solid performances, the Kawasaki Stockman 250’s exhaust system was entirely made from high-grade stainless steel, while the silencer was carefully muffled to offer smooth operation.

It is also worthy of being mentioned that the stopping power is handled by a dual-piston disc up front and single-piston disc at the rear.

The Kawasaki Stockman 250 is offered with a starting price of $7,245 and comes with a 12 months warranty.

Overview

Kawasaki Stockman 250

Designed in Australia for Australia, the Stockman is a real world performer that was born and bred for Australia’s uniquely harsh conditions out on the land. Featuring 50cc’s more engine capacity than any other ag-bike on the market and tougher-than-leather build quality and reliability, the Stockman is a thoroughbred workhorse that will keep working hard long after the cows have come home and left again.

Tough Carry Racks

Built tough, and integral to the Stockman?s chassis design, the front carry rack features a convenient spring retaining clip for securing light loads while the sturdy rear rack will carry up to a hefty 20kg.

No-Fuss Starting

Enjoy easy, trouble-free starting thanks to a reliable, electric starter facilitated by Kawasaki Automatic Compression Release (KACR), which automatically opens an exhaust valve to lower compression and enable easy cranking.

Stainless Exhaust

The entire exhaust system is constructed from high-grade stainless steel for high corrosion resistance and extended service life. The silencer is well-muffled to ensure quiet operation at all throttle openings.

Bash Guards

Twin engine guards provide excellent protection against rocks and stumps while lightweight-but-strong aluminium hand and lever guards offer superior protection to hands while averting brake and clutch lever breakages.

Powerful Four-Stroke Engine

The Stockman?s torquey, 249cc double overhead cam four-stroke engine is larger and more powerful than any other in its class. As you?d expect, it boasts Kawasaki?s bullet-proof reliability and features air-cooling for extra simplicity.

Low-Maintenance Brakes

A dual-piston disc up front and single-piston disc at the rear take care of braking duties, enabling brisk, controlled stops. Thanks to their simplistic design, the brakes are extremely low maintenance and offer long wear-life.
