The KLX 250 has been available here in Aus since 1980 and I remember reading about it and drooling then, it was basicly a KDX 200 with a four stroke motor shoehorned in. According to the reviews it was a bit sluggish but the rest of the package was gold
I was amazed to read in these forums that the 2006 is the first of these great bikes to hit the states. I'd love a KLX 300 but the registration and insurance is so much cheaper for the 250.
At the moment Kawasaki has discounted the 250 over $1000 and throwing in a 300cc big bore kit, I just cant pass that offer up! Anyway don't wanna bore you all just thought I'd say hi and please keep updating this thread.
They were here in 1980, then they went away. There is an official 300 cc big bore kit?
