2006 Kawasaki KX250F

All-new 2006 KX250F

Racing motocross is one of the most brutal, most demanding sports known to man. But it didn’t take long for a new order to develop when Kawasaki introduced the KX250F. After setting the world on fire, it totally dominated the class, winning the 2005 AMA East and West Supercross Championships and the 2004 and 2005 Arenacross titles. For 2006, the reigning champ gets an all-new, lighter aluminum perimeter frame, more power, more torque and less total weight. The KX250F will bury the competition again with quicker acceleration, higher compression, more usable power, a higher rev limiter and now even better handling. To get out of the gate first — and stay out front — we took our championship-winning 250 4-stroke engine, made it even faster and then wrapped it in a lightweight aluminum perimeter frame. The result is an incredibly powerful, balanced package. Other competition-eating features include a new Showa twin-chamber 47mm inverted front fork, all-new UNI-TRAK rear suspension linkage that delivers smoother wheel travel with less squat and improved traction, new lighter ribless hubs, fewer spokes, new lighter petal brake rotors, a Renthal handlebar, new seat, more efficient radiators and new two-piece radiator shrouds. When you roll the new KX250F off the truck, you’re gonna get noticed. Then you’re gonna disappear.

Just two short years after it was introduced to American motocross racers, the championship-winning KX250F motorcycle has been revamped — even though it already has five titles under its proverbial belt.

Numerous changes have been made to the potent KX250F. It produces significantly more power than the 2005 model it replaces, and like the new flagship KX450F, the KX250F sports an all-aluminum perimeter frame.

The 249cc, liquid-cooled, four-stroke engine now gives the KX250F a harder-hitting powerband, especially from mid- to high-rpm, and it extends that smooth, traction-grabbing power into the over-rev range.

Additional enhancements include revised intake and exhaust ports, and a revised combustion chamber for stronger low- to mid-rpm performance, while new cam profiles and a higher 13.5:1 compression ratio improve high-rpm performance. To compensate for the increased output, the piston now has a thicker crown.
