It might still only be May, but Kawasaki has already revealed its 2013 KX250F and KX450F off-roaders.
Changes to the KX250F include upgraded ‘Type 2’ Showa separate function front forks (which split the shock absorption and damping functions), while internal modifications mean a little extra power has been squeezed from the dual-injected single-cylinder engine.
A major innovation for the KX450F is the introduction of pneumatic front forks that, unlike conventional steel spring set-ups, can be easily adjusted without the need to dismantle anything. The larger capacity machine gets a slight power increase as well.
Both bikes also benefit from a narrower frame. The difference compared to last year’s models is a seemingly inconsequential 4 mm, but Kawasaki claims that that’s enough to improve both agility and rider control.
UK prices have been set at £6,349 for the 2013 KX250F and £6,649 for the 2013 KX450F.
