The buzz was off the chain for the new honda and it landed with a thud. Kawasaki drops an all new bike that looks to be a contender and crickets...

450s get the attention because they get the new stuff first-- This KX250 is finally getting the new chassis, e-start, new-style head, all of which have been on the KX450 since '19 and did have a fair amount of hype/curiosity at the time of its release.

Bike looks like a winner, though.

Sounds like a great bike. Kawasaki has really hit a home run with this latest chassis.

I am a Yamaha guy, but it would be fun to try this new Kawi

Funny vital vs Keefer review was almost the opposite when talking about the ecu couplers. Vital says white coupler had slightly less bottom but mid and top ran further. Keefer said white was better bottom but signed off to early.

Keefer and MXA also said opposite about the sound of the muffler.

I don't care what anyone says, if its a KX250 its going to be loud as fack.

It is loud and the exhaust note isn’t pleasant at all. Not as bad as a YZ 250f, but still not nice.

Our Ultimate Motorcycling review. We wanted to take it out to at least one more track before rushing out the review. Perris was pretty smooth that first day with only a few bikes on the track.

Keefer’s haphazard autocorrect editing method falls short compared to MXA’s in-house thesaurus writers, but I’m still more inclined to trust his opinions

Forkner may have a better weapon for sx this year

Looks great. Love my '19. Kawi's always feel 'right' to me.
