I think this is more comparable to the XR250, not a CRF250R, I'm sure they sold more XR's than CRF's throughout the years right?
It seems a lot like the WR250R but able with a lower compression engine therefore able to run on any gas? Also it should be able to cruise at 100-110km/h no problems?
I love my WR250R but it's been discontinued here due to low sales from the high price, this will possibly be my next choice when my WR250R has too many k's on the clock.
Anyone who thinks that Honda wouldn't sell shitloads of these is just crazy, in most of the world the importance of having a reliable, fuel efficient bike that is cheap to buy and has cheap parts is far more sought after than an expensive highly strung wheelie machine that runs on 95 octane then needs its valves checked and oil changed every 1000km
