The Best of Both Worlds

Based on Kawasaki's critically acclaimed dual purpose on/offroad KLX250S, the SF dials up maximum on-road fun with sticky street radials mounted on 17-inch wheels, a shorter seat height, a bit less suspension travel and a big front brake. It's "just" a 250 but its light weight of just 137kg (curb weight) means the KLX250SF packs the sort of performance you'd expect from something bigger and more expensive. Few motorcycles - of any size or price - are capable of out-cornering it.
