KAWASAKI KX250F 2008 - 2009
KAWASAKI KX250F (2008 - 2009) Description & History: The 2008 version of the Kawasaki KX250F sports and even slimmer frame made of aluminium, with revised reinforcement to provide dependable rigidity. To withstand the rigors of motocross racing, the 2009 bike got Showa dual-chamber forks and a redesigned swingarm, while the previous model's rear shock retained the hardware specs, but received upgraded damping characteristics.
A synthetic skidplate was installed, offering the same sturdiness the aluminium one provided but with a lighter design. Wider, serrated footpegs are now in place, to complement other nifty hardware upgrades, such as the factory-style Renthal handlebar and racing-specced petal rotors. If middleweight 4-stroke machines are your game, then the 2008 Kawasaki KX250F is the right toy.
