The Uni-Track rear suspension is immediately evident and there's a certain amount of prestige that goes with the Kawasaki Uni-Track rear suspension, Kawasaki is doing pretty well in with its Uni-Track technology. The gas-charged remote-reservoir shock features 16-way adjustable compression and rebound damping. The whole rear suspension of the Kawasaki KLX250 screams “cool” but in a refined and stylish manner – a bit like the Ninja of off-road suspension, if you like. The plus 23 centimeter of rear wheel travel is great for straight-line stability, and quality handling.
The triple clamps are also cool, the fuel tank, the handlebar, the fairing, giving the Kawasaki KLX250 a real factory racing look, and the seat has a fantastic seat, not to high and not that low.
The bling doesn't stop there, either, as there's a set of 43mm inverted cartridge forks, which offer excellent rigidity and consistent damping performance; plus 25 centimeter travel contribute to the straight-line stability, and perfect handling. While this inverted cartridge forks cushioning the ride up front while a massive 250mm petal disc up front with twin-piston caliper grips, and rear 240mm rear petal disc are responsible for the stopping power.
The fat wheels, with 4mm spokes for greater off-road durability, and small tread tire blocks for longer tire life and increased grip on the road.
It's Kawasaki's cool features like mentioned above what makes the KLX250 feel that bit more special. The Kawasaki KLX250 just makes you want to ride it as it sits there looking stylish on its side stand.
The 250cc compact engine design is lightweight and high revving, with a broad torque curve. The Kawasaki engine is strong and consistent; it's perfect. If you want to ride it aggressively and use up all your energy in the first five minutes of your ride, you can. But you can torque it and enjoy the midrange and the pulling power of the engine. It handles well in tight traffic, all we need to say that the Kawasaki D-tracker 250 with its smaller wheels was more willing in tight-corners.
