XR 200 comments

Recommended Posts

What are the specs for a xr 200. Do you think that an xr 200 would be a good bike for someone that is 5'6"? We do only trail riding. My dad wants to get this bike for my brother. He said he would rather have a cr125. but a 4 storke is better for him(that is what my dad says and i agree). I need your opinion/comments.

At 5'6" the xr200 will probably be oK for him, but if he's over 140lbs or if he rides agressively, the suspension will not be adequate. (At least on the newer versions of the XR) If he's a bigger guy or more agressive, you might want to think about a KLX300 for him. Still good for shorter riders, but the suspension has some hope and the seat height is still good.

I'm 5'8" and the seat height is just about right for trail riding. Suspension is maxed out for my 150 pound body. The CR125 would be way too tall for me and not much fun on low-speed, rocky trail riding. Early 90s CR125 are a little lower in seat height if that is the oly consideration.

PD
