I went to www.kawasakibigbike.com when I came upon the technical specifications for the KLX: 24 PS @9000 rpm and 21Nm of torque @ 7000rpm and the D-Tracker showed even less power: 22 PS @ 7500rpm and 20 Nm @ 7300rpm. What a surprise because I read on another website (not an official Kawasaki website) that both bikes have 29 PS @ 9000rpm and 25 Nm @ 7000rpm. That's a power difference of about 20%, no small amount. So where lies the truth? A Honda XR250 should have around 28 hp, even though it's air-cooled and a two-valver, so 29 hp for the Kawasaki sounds believable. Interestingly 25 Nm seemed a bit high to me for a single cylinder engine, the same website lists the power of the VTR250 at 32hp and 23Nm - a V-Twin producing less torque than a single? I'm not hung up on numbers, I just don't want to buy a bike and find out it doesn't pull... What's your educated guess?
