A CRF230 or a.........?

Recommended Posts

I know this is a four-stroke site and I love 4 strokes better, well I never did try a 2 stroke, but anyways. I am looking to upgrade out of my xr100. The CRF230 is alittle big but I can fit. And the Cr85Expert is the next, Best bike down from that. Since their is no CRF in between the 150 and 230. What would you guys think, A CR85Expert(I know its not a 4stroke) or stick with the CRF230 4 stroke. I am mostly going to be doing trail riding.

Lettme know, thanks. :cry:

Okay lets round those 2 question to, Lets ride the Trails Half, fast, Half Slow.

I know the CR85 is really meant for racing, but the guy at the dealer said it would be just as good on the trails.

Not again! Do a search in this forum & you'll find lots of entertainment! I mean information on CR85 VS CRF230.

Track & even high speed trails you'll want the CR85. Technical "goaty" trails the CRF230 beats everything except a trials bike.

The seat hieght on these bikes are the same, except for .1" according to Hondas site. Dunno how it could be a notch lower...

Anyways, all depends what you want...
