MXA VIDEO: FACTORY PRO CIRCUIT KX250 VS. BONE STOCK KX250
FACTORY PRO CIRCUIT KAWASAKI KX250 VERSUS STOCK KX250
Motocross Action tested Jo Shimoda’s Factory Pro Circuit Kawasaki KX250 at Glen Helen Raceway. We also brought out our stock KX250 to compare the two on the track. Is a factory bike something you really need? You might be surprised at our conclusion. Yes, factory bikes are modified to have the best engine, the best suspension, the best chassis and the best durability. However, usually factory bikes end up being too stiff for the average rider. Unless you’re going Jo Shimoda’s speed, it will be hard to make this bike work properly.
To maximize the time we had with Jo Shimoda’s factory Pro Circuit Kawasaki KX250 race bike, we did as much as we possibly could with it. We have lap time comparisons, battles, and a ton of information in this video comparing the two bikes.
