Kawasaki Stockman KL250

Welcome to the Kawasaki Stockman 250, otherwise known at the KL250 specifications and showroom review for 2020. The Stockman model has been around for over 20 years and in it’s current spec for nearly a decade. As it’s name suggests the Kawasaki Stockman is a motorbike for the farm, in particular those with livestock…

In terms of design Stockman is typical of the farm motorcycle class having bar work for protection from damage when it is inevitably dropped, or run into solid objects. It looks like farm bike is what I’m trying to say. The Kawasaki Stockman in standard trim is not road legal hence not LAMS or learner compliant.

In terms of tech and engines there is little to write about which is not unusual in the class. The digital dashboard is perhaps the most high tech feature of the KL250. Other than that, the clutch lock, dual side stands and large mud flaps are pretty much what you’d expect. Farm motorcycles are supposed to be simple, durable and serviceable and the Kawasaki Stockman is certainly that. That said, the Stockman’s retail selling price is about $6500 and specifications indicate that it is more a trail bike outfitted for farming use so on the high side.

As a result the Kawasaki Stockman is the 6th best farm motorcycle or ag-bike in 2019 selling 118 units. This sales number is down from 160 in 2018.
