Crf250x vs crf250r

Recommended Posts

The X is a woods bike, the R is a MX bike. If you are new to bikes, neither is a good choice. Both are race bikes and require knowledge and a lot of skill to make use of. A smart new rider would ride something like a XR250 or DRZ250 or similar for the first year.

The X is a detuned version of the 2006 R.


Actually detuned version of the '04/'05 250R. The R got dual exhaust in 2006. :)

I bought a crf 250x as my first dirt bike.  I am super happy with my purchase.  I have had it for over a year now.  Still a lot of power for me without any ccc mods though. I am enjoying learning new techniques and looking for more difficult trails.
