Kawasaki has expanded its dirt bike line-up in India with the launch of the KX250F and the KX100. The KX250F has been priced at Rs 7.14 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi), whereas the smaller KX100F will set you back by Rs 4.69 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
The KX250F is powered by a single-cylinder four-stroke 250cc engine mated to a five-speed transmission. The suspension duties are taken care of by 48mmm upside-down Showa with separate function forks (SFF) in the front. There’s a monoshock at the rear with preload, compression and damping adjustment. The KX250F is equipped with a 270mm disc with dual-piston calliper at the front and single 240mm disc with single-piston calliper at the rear. The bike tips the scale at 104kg.
The smaller KX100F gets a two-stroke 100cc liquid-cooled engine. This motor is enclosed in perimeter frame. The most interesting aspect of this motorcycle is its six-way adjustable handlebar. It allows the rider to custom-fit their riding positions by choosing from six different handlebar positions. The suspension duties on the KX100F is taken care of by 36mm upside-down forks and a monoshock at the rear.
Kawasaki will sell these bikes as completely-built-up (CBU) units. Unfortunately, neither of them are road legal and can be ridden only in private property.
