DRZ400E vs RMZ250

Recommended Posts

Thinking about trading the 400E for an 08 RMZ250. Gotta love cutting off 50lbs, but what about the power---especially the down-low tree-pulling power? I mainly play-ride---woods and fireroads and a few trails. However, I do like to hit the track once a month or so, just for the needed adreniline rush! What are you guys thinking--will the RMZ work as a playbike/crosser??

Just recently I went trail riding with a KXF250. Very light and suprising power for a 250 4 stroke, but a P.I.T.A. to start if you stall it.

I know you are asking about an RMZ250, but I'm sure the power is similar to the KXF250

I've ridden a WR250 and it rips good, but its an entirely different kind of power. The WR required constant shifting and huge revs. There basically is no torque, especially if you compare it to a DRZ. I'd suspect the RMZ is the same way.

Anytime we 'race' the WR and my DRZ are pretty much neck and neck. It just really depends on who gets the best launch and traction.
