Xr 250r or Crf 230f for rider moving from trx 400ex

Recommended Posts

My dad and I do 99% of out riding on the trail, him on an XR 400r and me on a TRX 400ex. I'm a new rider in terms off single tracks, so I need something easy to learn on. I am about 5' 11" and weigh 135 pounds. What would be best for me?

Id go with the 230 just for the electric start and 6 speed transmission, do the xr250's have a 6 speed?

The xr250 does have a 6 speed. I'm not worried about the starter, I just want something easy to ride on and won't hold me back once I get a bead on it.

The CRF-230 is easier to ride whereas the XR-250 won't be as limiting. IMO the CRF makes a great entry level trail bike but the XR has more room to grow.
