2013 Kawasaki KLX250, Modern Dual-Sport Machine

When it was introduced for the first time, the Kawasaki KLX 250S has manage to set new standards in the dual purpose bikes segment and since then it started to be considered a benchmark in its class.

For 2013, the bike received only style upgrades featuring new color and graphic schemes. Unfortunately, the technical specifications remained unchanged, so don’t expect to any power upgrades. Thankfully nobody had any significant complains on the old 249cc liquid cooled engine, so it’s not such a bad news after all. The engine features a 34mm semi-flat slide Keihin CVK carburetor, an aluminum guard, an electric fan and dual lightweight, Denso radiators.

Like the previous generation, the 2013 model continues to be built on a lightweight, high-tensile steel frame, designed to keep the bike’s center of gravity to as low as possible to increase performance. The low center of gravity is combined with a short wheelbase which provides an extra tight turning radius helping you to move with agility even on the tightest tracks.

The stopping power is assured by twin-piston calipers which bite a 250mm semi-floating petal-shaped disc up front and a 240mm petal-shaped disc at the rear.
