05 CRF 250R First impressions

Recommended Posts

Compared to my 450 this thing handles unbelievably. Slam the brakes then dive inside or square the berm with ease. I cant do either om my 450. I am on the gas much earlier and harder on this little thumper. Off jumps I am able to lean into the face and keep the gas on. In the air it corrects with ease. It feels like I am going much faster through turns on the 250. It has much less power though. No comparison. I am not sure if the starts (vet class/ ride anything) will be at the back or if the uphills will be lost. It will depend on the track. Will let you know when I find out. This bike has totally changed my thinking. I was thinking 525 EXC for woods but now Im thinking what is the smallest bike that still has power for the hillclimbs. I dont think its the 250x.
