In our 2019 250F Shootout, the Kawasaki KX250 started to show it’s age when compared to the other bikes in the class. It landed in fifth place, with mixed scores of thirds, fourths, and fifths from our testers. In just a few days we’ll be riding the 2020 bike with a whole bunch of changes, but for now, we wanted to see if we could inject a little more performance into the 2019 bike without getting too carried away with the budget.
