An experienced off-road motorcyclist knows the advantages of a good dual-purpose motorcycle: the lightweight chassis makes it easy to ride, the upright seating position is comfortable and perfect for scanning the horizon, and it's inexpensive to own and operate. Best of all, a dual-purpose bike gives the rider the ability to simply ride from the garage to explore quiet dirt roads and out-of-the-way places, which is why the Kawasaki KLR250 is so much fun.

The KLR250 is powered by a four-stroke, single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine with dual overhead cams operating four valves for superior performance. Double engine counterbalancers keep the powerplant running smooth from idle to redline, and an automatic cam chain tensioner helps maintain more precise cam timing without maintenance.

The frame for the KLR250 is made of the same high-tech, high-tensile steel used in Kawasaki's world-class KX motocross machines. A detachable, lightweight aluminum rear subframe simplifies maintenance by providing access to the airbox, carburetor and rear shock.

The KLR250 features an air adjustable front fork and Kawasaki's UNI-TRAK® rear suspension, providing more than nine inches of travel at both ends to smooth the ride. The latter features adjustable spring preload and rebound damping. Helping to maintain good traction on pavement or dirt roads, the KLR250's wheels are shod with universal tires, while a single front disc brake and rear drum brake help to ensure smooth, powerful stops.
