I don't know...I think you'll find there's a good deal of off road potential in the KLX. The suspension can be tweaked to a high level of performance, and the engine has a lot of options that really liven it up without much effect on durability and reliability. I had 4 XR250's from '84 until '90. I like my 300 jugged '06 KLX better than any of them. Race Tech revalving in the fork and shock, aftermarket pipe, 36mm pumper carb, and all airbox mods...damn near a real dirt bike with very good road manners...and only marginally heavier. It'll never be a KTM or such, but it's a darn good DS bike.
