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.

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.
