This is for another option if you need more power from Kawasaki KLX, Kawasaki KLX 140 is the right off-road bike with affordable prices, and good performance, I know KLX 110 is cheaper than KLX 140, but it's all about performance, KLX 140 comes with 144cc of engine capacity, SOCH, and 2 valve. KLX 110 only has 4 speed transmission, Kawasaki KLX 140 comes with 5 speed transmission, I thing it's close ratio for better torque or like that, and looks useful for dirt area. on the rear suspension, Kawasaki KLX 140 uses UNI-TRAK® linkage system, on the brakes system, this Kawasaki bike uses single 220mm petal disc with dual piston caliper, and 186mm on the rear side with only single piston caliper.

Looks for serious dirt-bike riders who want to get the max performance from Kawasaki KLX series, Kawasaki KLX250S is little different than another KLX series such as from KLX 140 or KLX 110. Kawasaki KLX 250S is dual-purpose bike, This bike is suitable for use on the highway, but with the label 'dual-purpose' Kawasaki KLX 250S can also handled cobbled streets, sandy roads, and bad roads, in contrast to other Kawasaki KLX, KLX 250 engine uses a slightly above KLX 140 and 110. Kawasaki KLX250S using a engine with a capacity of 250cc, with DOCH, liquid-cooled, 4-valve, and also 6 speed transmission. For better performance, this bike uses liquid cooling for better engine temperature, I thing it's good and "must in" on fighter motorcycles in 250cc class. This KLX bike has 35.0 in. of seat height and 297.7 lbs. of curb weight.
