upgrading from wr250r. looking for being better

Recommended Posts

hi, i recently got a new car to commute with so i can dedicate my motorcycle for offroad only. almost no commutes at all.

i was a bike that will be the best for learning to overcome hills and climbs.. riding singles mostly

 

i have seen a ktm exc 250 2t six days with a good price.

will it fit me? what else to search for?

and lastly, will i feel a difference at my level changing the bike? or id better keep the wr

If you are looking for a little more power a sixdays would be sweet.

OP, what year is you current WR250F ?

Would you trade-off some long term durability for improved performance, increased maintenance etc. ?

 

Your location shows Israel, not knowing your regional or local details,

I'd perhaps take parts, service and dealership proximity into consideration when choosing a new bike brand.

its 2016 model.

 

yea i really prefer losing long interval maintenance for much better performance

If you like Yamaha, a WR250F would offer better off-road performance than your current R

but less maintenance requirements than a motocross race bike (YZ250F) 

 

You would also appreciate the lower weight.

 

Lots of options,

preference of 2 stroke / 4 stroke, type of power, overall weight,

budget, mechanical ability to maintain and repair yourself etc.

i plan in doing most of the maintenance myself. so 2 strokes seems the best.

the f version isnt widely available here and is either too expensive or ruined bike..

 

i also have a kx250f plated almost new. how is the maintenance of this one?

Any high revving 250cc 4-stroke motocross race bike would be a trade-off in engine longetivity versus a tamer off-road / enduro specific bike.

Wide ratio gearbox, torquier engine characteristics, lights, e-start, plusher suspension etc. are also all items that make

an enduro specific bike usually much better suited for just about every other type of riding except motocross tracks.
