Kawasaki will launch two new motocross bikes, the KX250 and KX100 on December 18. Both bikes are motocross machines made exclusively for track use and and are not street legal. So, there are no headlights, turn indicators, licence plates and the like and these bikes can't be registered as road bikes.

The Kawasaki KX250 is powered by a four-stroke, single cylinder, water-cooled, 249cc engine and features high-quality off-road equipment with high ground clearance and long travel suspension. At the front is a 48mm Showa telescopic fork with 40-way spring preload adjustability and 22-position compression and 20-position rebound damping adjustability.

At the rear is also a fully adjustable Showa monoshock with 19-position low speed and 4-turns high-speed compression damping and 22 position rebound damping. Brakes include single discs at both ends, with a 270mm petal disc at the front and a 240mm petal disc at the rear. The engine is mounted on an aluminium perimeter frame and the bike weighs just 105kg.

The Kawasaki KX100 looks similar to the KX250, but gets a smaller engine - a 99cc two-stroke, single cylinder, water cooled engine mounted on a high-tensile steel perimeter frame. The KX100 gets a 36mm inverted telescopic front fork and a Uni-Trak single shock system at the rear with 24-way compression and 21-way rebound damping. The KX100 is even lighter than the KX250, with a curb weight of under 80kg.

Clearly, Kawasaki is betting big on the motocross scene in India, both in competition events as well as for leisure off-road riding to introduce these two new motocross models in India. Both bikes are being brought to India as CBUs so expect steep sticker prices. The Kawasaki KX100 currently retails for $ 4599 (around Rs 3.10 lakh) in the US, while the Kawasaki KX250 sells for $ 7599 (around Rs 5.12 lakh). India prices will be announced at the launch.
