TWO-STROKE SPOTLIGHT | PETER DIXON’S 2002 KAWASAKI KX250
The 2002 KX250 looked great before Peter went on to rebuild the bike.
“I’m not sure if my 2 stroke qualifies for your magazine given some of the insane builds you feature in the mag but a mate of mine has encouraged me to get in touch.
“This is my 2002 Kawasaki KX 250 L4 which I have had since new. The bike remained completely stock (piston and all) until 2016 when a small tear in the seat prompted a rebuild.
The KX250 after it was rebuilt.
“Cheers and thanks for keeping the 2 stroke dream alive.” –Peter Dixon.

I’M DREAMING OF AN ELECTRIC CHRISTMAS
Press Release: Who wants an X-Box or PS4 when you’ve got an Electric OSET motorcycle and a life on two wheels ahead of you? As Christmas rolls around again, the big man in red is taking orders.
OSET Bikes are electric off-road motorcycles mainly for kids. They come in five different sizes and are ideal for teaching kids throttle control, balance and technique all in the comfort of the back yard or wider open spaces.
Electric power has surprising torque, but because it’s linear and can be turned down to walking pace, meaning there’s no scary power band to put kids off. And of course, because they’re silent you won’t annoy the neighbours.
Steve Deines who runs OSET Bikes USA, said: “These are the top choice for any moms and dads who are looking for either that first motorcycle for their little racer or the ultimate play bike for kids that can be used everyday in your back yard without upsetting your neighbours.
They have no hot parts, require no gas, need very little maintenance, are virtually silent and most importantly… are mom approved meaning that glittering career in supercross or motocross can start as early as 3 years old!”
The bikes are primarily aimed at kids aged 3 – 12 and retail from $1399 – $4,399. Available with lithium (around 6 hours run time) and lead acid batteries (around 2 hours run time). Visit www.osetbikes.com/us to find your closest dealer.
Get ready to have your back yard turned into an obstacle course or motocross track, safe in the knowledge the neighbors won’t hear a thing!
P.S. They come in dad size too….
