Kawasaki KDX250SR (KDX250F) 1991-1994

The enduro model Kawasaki KDX250 dates back to 1980, when the first generation of a motorcycle was introduced to the market, which was only available in the United States. That generation, by today's standards, was pretty archaic - an air-cooled 2-stroke engine, drum brakes, and crude forms of plastics. The factory model code is KDX250-A.

The 1981 Kawasaki KDX250 undergoes minor revisions with turn signals and a new plastic design. The factory model code is KDX250-B. 1984 was the last year of production.

In 1991, Kawasaki resumed production of the KDX250, seriously updating it both externally and technically - a new liquid-cooled engine, disc brakes, an inverted fork. From this year, the model became available not only in the North American market, but also in Europe, Australia and Japan. Now 3 modifications of the motorcycle were offered:

  • Kawasaki KDX250R (KDX250-D) - "hard-enduro" modification. It does not have turn signals and a speedometer (it is equipped with a simple trip meter with daily and total mileage). It was available from 1991 to 1995. in Europe, North America and Japan.
  • Kawasaki KDX250 (KDX250-E) - identical to the previous modification, but with the ability to use on DOPs. Equipped with turn signals and a full speedometer. It existed from 1991 to 1992. in the markets of Europe and Australia.
  • Kawasaki KDX250SR (KDX250-F) - "soft enduro" modification. It was available from 1991 to 1994. only in the domestic Japanese market. It is a previous modification with a number of changes: the presence of mirrors, other suspension and geometry settings, a reduced fuel tank (from 12.5 to 11.0 liters), a reduced carburetor (PWK35 instead of PWK38), other gearbox settings, a dry weight increased by 9 kg ...

1995 was the last year of production of the Kawasaki KDX 250, after which it finally left the market and did not receive further development.
