2012 Kawasaki KLX 250 S | Quick Look

2012 Kawasaki Motorcycle

Slim and trim at at under 300 pounds gassed up, the KLX250S is the most serious street-legal off-road bike offered by Kawasaki.

With 10 inches of rear wheel travel (adjustable for damping and spring preload) and nine inches of 43mm USD fork travel (adjustable for compression damping), the KLX is only a tire change away from serious off-roading.

Ground clearance is plentiful and the seat height not unreasonably high, so technical terrain can be ridden successfully.

The two-gallon fuel capacity limits the range of the capable motor, so plan your excursions with gas-stops in mind.
