785 offers a good suggestion with a 450. You could also consider the offroad cousins of the motocross 450s such as the WRF and CRF450X.

The 250 4-stroke motocross bikes are serious race machines and if ridden hard, require frequent and expensive maintenance. The bikes run at 12,000 plus RPM and have pistons just big enough to hold the rings. I recommend you ride a few 250F's and 450F's before you decide.
