CRF150F or KX85

Recommended Posts

My 11 year old son has a nice crf150f but he is begging for a KX85. Mostly trail riding a little track. What says the hive? I think the crf is a little heavy for him. I welcome your thoughts.

Pros of crf150f: you already have it. Very reliable. Low maintenance. Smooth, linear power.

Cons: heavy, limited suspension, hard to develop skills beyond basics.

KX85 is a fun ride and could help develop skills as he grows and prepare him for big bikes. They are a blast to ride trails or track. They do require more maintenance but would be good for learning to wrench.

Ultimately only you know if he is ready for a move but it would definitely be beneficial for him.

Sorry for giving info you prob already know and not really answering a question.:rolleyes:
