Kawasaki have announced updates to their KX250F for the 2018 model. 

The changes include revisions to the suspension that sees adjustments to the rear shock and some new components being used in the forks.


The engine and fuel injection system have received the raft of the updates though, with Kawasaki focusing on holeshot acceleration out of the start gate with better bottom and mid-range power to give a smoother engagement that makes the bike easier to use with a high rpm.

The fuelling has been altered with new injection settings with the inlet area getting re-engineered too. The pump pressure has also been increased and the injector mounting angle is also shallower. Alongside this, Kawasaki have made advances with the inlet timing and helps to deliver the power and torque gains over the previous model when matched with a lower 13:4:1 compression ratio. 

Kawasaki has yet to reveal when the bike will be available and if there will be any changes to the pricing of the machine. Nor have they released just how much the power and torque have increased by. MCN will update this story when we find out more.
