The Kawasaki 250CC is the ultimate starter motorcycle for a new rider. It’s nimble, light, and gets great gas mileage.
This Kawasaki is powered by a 248cc, 4-stroke, parallel twin, DOHC, engine that puts out quite a bit of power for being just under 250cc’s. It can run the 1/4 mile in 14.6 seconds at 88mph which isn’t as fast as other larger displacement bikes, but I think this is more than enough for the real world.
Something that makes this motorcycle really fun is its 14,000 rpm redline; it’s a real screamer when you take it on the highway! The 250CC really loves being wound up to 9,000 rpms, and at around 10,000 you can really feel it start to grip the asphalt.
Finally the best thing about the 250CC, is how inexpensive it is to own and maintain
