Best Budget Jumper in RED :)

Recommended Posts

I want a light play bike for the desert to learn how to jump.

Currently I have a 07 CRF450X but want something much lighter and not expensive.

Im 6'2 and 90kgs

What would be suitable a to start with... CR250?

For sure. one thing ive noticed after owning a yz250 and riding a cr250.. is that the yz 250 definately has more bottom end as where the cr250 seems to lack it while compensatin with mid high power output. Just thought id mention that, maybe it will influence ur decision.

I am the same size as you and currently own a 2006 crf450r and just got a 2005 cr250r. It is very easy to tell how much lighter the 250 is. The bike jumps great and feels feathery in the air, but the stock springs are too soft for our weight. With a simple spring swap front and rear, it would be an outstanding bike to jump with.

The power is perfectly suited for desert riding and with modifications it only gets better. Definitely look for a cr250...I would look for a 2005 - 2007.
