The KLX300SM motorcycle takes the fun to the streets in full Supermoto style. A fast-accelerating engine, paired with light, agile handling, evokes the playfulness within. Suspension, wheels, and brakes are optimised for Supermoto, and KX-inspired bodywork means business. The KLX300SM is quick to steal the scene with equal parts performance and attitude.
The 292cc engine (bore x stroke 78.0 x 61.2 mm) is positioned low in the frame, contributing to a low centre of gravity. Optimised ignition timing delivers a strong yet easy to use power delivery at low and mid-range rpm that transitions smoothly to the powerful top-end.
Kawasaki’s innovative radiator fan cover guides hot air down and away from the rider, contributing to rider comfort.
With enduro racer-derived performance, the fuel-injected, liquid-cooled, 4-stroke, single-cylinder engine delivers a rewarding spread of power across the rev range. Complementing its strong, rider-friendly low-mid range, it offers crisp response with every twist of the throttle thanks to cam profiles sourced from Kawasaki’s 2020 KLX300R play bike.
The box- and tubular-section high-tensile steel perimeter frame creates a slim, lightweight package. The lightweight, highly rigid aluminum D-section swingarm contributes to low un-sprung weight.
An adjustable ø43 mm inverted cartridge-style front fork works with Uni Trak rear suspension equipped with adjustable damping and preload to deliver agile handling for exciting riding.
On the KLX300SM 17” front and rear wheels contribute to agile handling.
Front and rear petal disc brakes offer impressive stopping performance. A large ø300 mm semi-floating front disc delivers reliable stopping power while adding to supermoto looks. At the rear, a ø240 mm disc brake further contributes to control.
Complementing the relaxed, upright riding position, a thick urethane seat contributes to comfort on longer rides, while an easy reach to the ground adds to rider confidence.
The enduro racer-based frame and chassis components are the source of the KLX300SM’s high-level of performance. The lightweight package offers both manoeuvrability and excellent control.
Original headlight adds to the aggressive looks.
All-digital instrumentation includes digital speedometer, bar-type tachometer, clock, odometer, dual trip meters, and a range of warning/indicator lamps.
Dressed in supermoto styling, the KLX300SM offers sharp, head-turning looks.
