funny, i just read this post in the what bike section.............

"I just finished reading the TWMX 250 shootout for this year so if you are looking at 2010's they voted the kawi the best. it's good as long as you don't mind the appearance getting worn down quickly. They said the new Honda is their second favorite, the only thing it lacks is stiff suspension and low end power, but it's biggest plus is that it's the only 250 other than the suzuki with EFI. They didn't test the Suzuki yet because they aren't available yet, but the KTM and Yamaha dont even compare with the others. that's just according to TWMX though. "

I just don't want this to turn into a 2 vs. 4 thread!

What I want to see is a reputable magazine do a heads up 250cc shootout between them.

Why hasn't this happened already?

mxa had the kawsucker first and the ktoom second. they kindof tell it like it is, seems like they dont mind offending manufactures. 250 winners are based mainly on the engine, if the package is good. i dont think you'll see a full 250cc shootout, including the 2strokes. too bad the suk wasn't ready.

Did they include the 250cc two-strokes in the test?

Just curious, no need to flame

They didnt in the TWMX test.

I hate to say it, as I am a two stroke rider, but a 250 two stroke would be overlooked and underrated. No doubt. One guy would prefer it, and all the others just write it off, refusing to try to get used to the two stroke. I've read a few shootouts and it happens every time.Welcome to the death of the two stroke.

If nobody read it it wouldnt still be on the shelves as far as rear suspension goes I'm pretty sure they said the KTM was better.
