2014 Kawasaki KLX 250S, the New Dual-Purpose Machine
Being a machine which will go anywhere, the 2014 Kawasaki KLX 250S comes with a fully adjustable fork and the acclaimed adjustable UniTrak progressive-linkage rear suspension. Classic off-road-worthy 21" and 18"wheels come in the front and rear, respectively and petal rotors provide the needed stopping force.
The low-maintenance 249cc DOHC 4-valve single is fed through a 34mm Keihin carb for massive power output, while the 6-speed manual gearbox is sure to provide all the torque/power combinations for a great time in the saddle of this machine.
With a slender profile which is great for both trail riding and squeezing through the city traffic, the 2014 Kawasaki KLX 250S is also light: it only weighs in at less than 298 lbs (less than 135 kg) and this makes it very nimble and highly maneuverable for a lot of riders.
With modern digital instrumentation and a slightly revised bodywork, the 2014 Kawasaki KLX 250S retains the aggressive headlight design and two-piece KX-type radiator shrouds.
Great for commuting thanks to the great mileage and weekend fun when leaving the asphalt behind, the 2014 Kawasaki KLX 250S comes in either Ebony or the traditional Lime Green and is available for $5,099 MSRP (€3,885).
