250cc entry-level enduro

It can also be done cheaply.

After the success of the sporty Ninja 250 R, Kawasaki offers a second alternative in the long neglected 250 class with the revival of the KLX 250.

Stock market crashes and fuel price shocks also have their good points: Values ​​are changing. Even with the motorcycle. After all, since the economic crisis at the latest, low-displacement motorcycles have been attractive again on this side of scooters and entry-level bikes. Even more: A small fan base has already emerged around the pioneers of this species, the supermoto and enduro models WR 250 X and WR 250 R from Yamaha and the tiny super sports car from Kawasaki, the Ninja 250 R. The motivation for the change of heart is understandable: a mature-looking, attractive appearance, moderate prices, low fuel consumption. And with that, the Kawasaki KLX 250 should now also score.
