I'm eventually looking for a stable mate for my DRZ400E. I use my DRZ for tight technical, mud, stones & rocky, woods, fire trail, highway, ADV trips - everything and it does them all fine. I've been considering a 2nd bike for a while. This one should be a lighter bike mainly for use on the shorter but more technical runs. I keep/kept flipping between wanting a smaller 4T (250f or Husky Te310 type thing) or a 250 2 stroke. ***I have no ambitions of MX or Enduro BTW*** That was until I had a quick go on mates KDX220 and liked it. It's not an expensive bike but it seems to have been optimised for lane type riding, low down grunt rather than screaming power. No doubt most 2 strokes can be optimised by choice of pipe, carb, power valve etc. I like the fact that the KDX is light weight & has Jap reliability/solid build. One thing I also liked about my mates KDX220 is it appeared to be using about the same amount of fuel as my DRZ, that means it should have good range from the standard tank. The enduro choices widely available here (used) seem to be limited to Orange or Gas Gas, I'm not keen on either but would go KTM if needs be. Are there any other bikes I should be considering? I don't want high a maintenance costly bike but I'm prepared for this bike to be more needy that my DRZ. Any thoughts guys?
