The class-leading KLX300SM lightweight motorcycle takes the fun to the streets in full Supermoto style. A quick-accelerating engine, paired with light, agile handling, helps riders of all skill levels manoeuvre through city traffic, navigate country backroads, or experience the exhilaration of Supermoto racing at a track. Suspension, wheels, and brakes have been tuned for Supermoto-style performance.
The 292cc engine’s strong yet rider-friendly power delivery at low and mid-range rpm transitions smoothly to a powerful top-end. The engine is positioned low in the frame, contributing to a low centre of gravity.
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 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.
A relaxed, upright riding position is complemented by a thick urethane seat for comfort on longer rides, while a comfortable reach to the ground adds to rider confidence. The new shroud design allows smoother transitions when shifting position, enabling riders to feel more at one with their machine when cornering.
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.
A strategic use of black and coloured parts creates a coloured line that flows front head to tail through the middle of the bike, similar to Kawasaki’s KX motocross machines.
Compact LED headlight in a slim, sharp new front cowl offers remarkable brightness and a thin design reminiscent of a full-fledged enduro bike.
All-digital instrumentation includes digital speedometer, bar-type tachometer, clock, odometer, dual trip meters, and a range of warning/indicator lamps.
The KLX300SM features KX motorcrosser-inspired styling for a fresh, sporty look. All-new bodywork creates a sharp design that flows from the compact new headlamp to the more condensed tail, hinting at the versatile performance that riders can expect from this supermoto machine.
