I bought my XR650R used with less than 300 miles and 3 months old for $3500 Wonder why it was so cheap? BECAUSE NO ONE WANTS THEM you can't come up with a real reason why the WR250 is better It's about 75 lbs. lighter and not the size of a small truck. It actually turns when you want it to without having to work yourself to death. Of course if you ride around in your yard all day with your a$$ on the seat I guess those reasons don't count.
