Trx 250r vs ltz400


I like both of the quads but i like speed more and i was wonderin which of the two is faster in a drag race.....plz reply with experiences or opinions both are very much appreciated

250R and dollar for dollar you'll get a lot more power out of the classic Honda.

250r will tear that z up. i had a built 400ex and its just outa this world how much diff it is. i love my r. faster then any 450r ive ridden.

not even a comparison...the 250R would DESTROY A LTZ400 without a doubt...but if you want even more GO, check out this little quad called the YAMAHA BANSHEE :moon: about the same price as a 250R and its much faster..

250r for sure. bad ass bikes from their time, still bad today.. A far as comparing it to a Banshee.. Hmmm the 250r is by far a lighter feeling and handling bike then the banshee. The banshee feels off canter to me atleast, no where near as nimble as the R..

yeah. banshees are alrite im dogin either one just cuz i have an r cuz there both great quads but i rode my friends shee and it has dual sst pipes and mine feels like it would destroy it. but when the shee hits top end it feels like its got sum to it but no bottem end at all atleast not compared to the r.

Original post is months old, but.....

If you want a light fun machine and don't mind lots of wrenching on a 20+ year old machine, then the 250R.

If you want to ride instead of spend you time in the garage wrenching, then the LT.

I liked my 250R. About the only major Honda part left on it was the frame and it had a lot of motorwork but it was a nice bike. It always started and ran pretty good. I don't know anything about the Z400 but I do know what 250R parts are hard to come by and if you end up with a Banshee, they are really fun bone stock but when you start spending money on it, its never-ending. Its not that they tear-up, is that when you make a mod in one place you see where you need one in another place...

not necesarly i ride the piss outa my 250r and it takes it with out having to do any work. the only thing mine does is anyifreez come outa the overflow and i think it does that cuz my rad. cap is bad i think. bout the most reliable thing ive ever had and ive alota dirt bikes and 4 wheelers.

actually alot of the 250R parts are the same as 400EX part and are interchangeable. as for the banshee....for the dunes theres nothing better but for everywhere else (were talking only banshee or 250R or maybe LT250R) the 250 2 strokes rule, Im currently looking for a 250R to play around on. as for the Z400, compare it to something that is actually similar--a 400EX

      Jeremy Martin Leads the Charge for Wiseco Riders at Daytona Supercross
      Christian Craig Turns in Career Best in 450 Competition
      MENTOR, Ohio (March 13, 2018) – Jeremy Martin showed the way for Wiseco-sponsored riders in Saturday night’s Monster Energy Daytona Supercross presented by Honda. In a season marred by bad luck and misfortune, Martin put together a near flawless ride to earn his first Eastern Regional 250SX Class podium finish of the season.
      Martin qualified eighth for the division’s annual visit to the World Center of Racing, finished fourth in his heat race, and came home second in the 250SX main event, missing his first win of the year by less than a second.

      “It’s Daytona, a real man’s track.” said Martin who sits fourth in points. “It was the toughest race of the year as far as fitness. I had to slow down a little bit, halfway through the main. I was getting close to (race winner) Jordon (Smith) and I was starting to think about where I could make a move on him, then I made some mistakes and he got away from me. Couldn’t quite get close again, but it’s good. We’re on the podium and in contention for wins again. That’s something I haven’t been able to say in supercross in a while. We want to get wins and now we know it’s coming.”
      Martin’s podium was a bright spot, but the rest of the event was rough for the GEICO Honda/Factory Connection squad. RJ Hampshire crashed hard in his heat race and had to be transported to a local hospital. He injured his back and ribs, but shoulder pain left him with the most concern.
      “I felt good on the bike all day,” said Hampshire via his Instagram account. “Had some pretty good speed and my foot just slid off hitting my shifter in those rollers during that heat race. After seeing the pictures from the crash I’m very thankful I didn’t take a shot to my head. I have some fractures in my T3/T4 in my back and ribs. Also have some damage to my lungs which is why I’ll be spending a couple nights in the hospital. I’ll be getting some more checkups this week on the shoulder also.”
      Cameron McAdoo, the third member of the team, was unable to compete at Daytona after being sidelined with a hand injury two races ago in Atlanta.
      Across the paddock, in the premier 450SX Class, Christian Craig got the call to fill in for Team Honda HRC. With the team’s regular riders Ken Roczen and Cole Seely out with injuries, it was up to Craig to carry the load for the factory team, and the upstart rider didn’t disappoint.
      The San Diego native was solid in both qualifying sessions, won his heat race and snagged the holeshot in the division’s main event. After relinquishing the lead to eventual winner Justin Brayton, Craig continued to show he was up for the challenge. The 26-year-old rider raced for second and third for most of the 20-minute-plus-one-lap feature before losing one more spot in the late goings to bring his No. 32 Honda CRF450R home fourth in the final rundown.

      “I had a great week testing with the team,” commented Craig. “They came down to Florida right after Atlanta and I feel like we really improved. Just getting more time on the bike and getting more comfortable was huge. I started off race day feeling really good. My qualifying position didn’t really show it, but overall I was happy with my riding. It’s all about having fun out there, and man, that’s what I did tonight. I was up front in the heat race, fell to third, but then the two guys in front took each other out so I ended up winning. You can call it luck or whatever, but I just put myself in a good position to capitalize on people’s mistakes."
      “I had a good gate pick and some confidence going into the main. I grabbed the holeshot and led for almost the first lap, but [Justin] Brayton got by me pretty quick. I stayed second for quite a while. I just rode my hardest and did my best. Unfortunately, a couple guys got by me so I ended up fourth. The track was so tough. This is only my second time racing Daytona and last year didn’t go well, so I really wanted to get some revenge this year. It’s better than the week before, but man, I was so close to a podium. I just need to keep putting myself in good positions and work on getting better each weekend.”
