The New KX 250

Anyone rode the new KX 250. I've checked out the reviews on dirtrider and they seem to be all good. I have an RM 125 right now, but I'm in the market for a new 4 stoke. Will there be a big difference going from one to the other?

i rode my buddies 07 kx 250f and i hated it but ive always been a honda or yamaha guy. the new ones may be better but who knows. 4 strokes have a much broader power band than the 2 strokes. 4 strokes you dont have to shift as much.

Are you asking about the KX250 or KX250f? Either way, yes there will be a big difference. I had a YZ125 and rode my buddies CR250 and it was insanley powerful. Then I got a YZ250f and it did everything I could have ever imagined. It was a blast. I was never let down.

I have the 08 kx250f best bike i have ever owned, before that i had a 05 kx250 two stroke, personally on the track my 250f would kill the 250, but for the desert i loved the 250 two stroke. also both bike are a huge difference from a 125.

They dont make a KX 250 only a 250f. 2 strokes are long gone. the 250f took the place of a 125 2 stroke. They race the lites class now.

I did not know that they got rid of them. I know about the whole lites class stuff, just didnt know they stopped producing them. Thanks for bringing that to my attention

In my opinion, everyone is going to say the brand they ride is the best. I personally dont think you can go wrong with any brand. I know people that have had all the big brands, except for a KTM, and they all loved them, and had no problems. I had an 05 YZ250f and an 06 KX250f for a brief time, which belonged to my buddy. Both were great bikes. I hated Kawasaki before he got the bike and actually liked his a lot, it was slightly faster than my YZ. But this was also 5 years ago. I dont think you could go wrong with any, just research them as much as you can.

x2 on that. Honestly they're really all the same, maybe one brand has a slightly better suspension or something than the other, but in the end the only way you would be able to tell a big difference is if you ride at the pro level.
