Kawasaki Revises Motocross Range for 2012

Shortly after Honda announced it has updated its motocross range for 2012, Kawasaki revealed it has done the same with its own off-road machines. Specifically, the manufacturer has introduced the first motocross machines to ever make use of dual injectors: the KX250F and KX450F models.

According to Kawasaki, the dual injector set up uses a downstream injector to ensure instant response while the upstream injector is tasked with providing power as the rpm and throttle position increase.

A second innovation present on the 2012 Kawasaki KX250F is represented by the Separate Function front Fork (SFF) which separates damping and shock absorption in order to deliver smooth operating action and firm damping performance.
The KX250F features a new progressive throttle link as well and has also received upgrades to the Uni-Trak rear suspension.

As for the 2012 KX450F, this is the first ever motor cross bike to use launch control in order to reduce rear wheel spin. It also features three switchable maps for standard, hard and soft conditions which can be modified via the KX Fi calibration kit.

The 2012 Kawasaki KX450F has also received a four position adjustable handlebar and two options for foot rest position.

"Put simply the 2012 KX250F has been created to take the MX2 class toa new and more rewarding level for both expert and enthusiast riders. Such genuine innovations as the first use dual injectors, a factory race developed bridge bottom piston and the new, progressive throttle link, will surely keep the next incarnation of the KX250F at the front of the pack," stated the Sales and Marketing Manager for Kawasaki Motors UK, Michael Johnstone.
