01 kx 250 vs rm 250

Recommended Posts

All right, so I'm needing a newer bike, and I'm looking at an 01 rm 250 or an 01 kx 250, both about the same price. The suzuki is in very good condition but it has a bad reputation of needing work and instability at high speeds. Which is better? I don't do tracks, but I like open stuff and trail riding both. Thanks!

I can't speak for the RM, but I did have a 01 KX250, great bike, worked good trail riding. Did basic maintenance and the bike was very reliable. +1 on the KX. Oh, check to see if you can remove the radiator shrouds, the nuts molded into the gas tank would spin.

AAH arent they basicly the same bike?

No, the earlier KXF250 & RMZ250 were though.

I would go with whichever bike had the fewest hours. I had an 00kx250, great bike but the 01 rm is a generation ahead. Handling is better and suspension too I would wager. If it were me I would go for the rm.

How much do you have to spend?
