My wife owns an XT225 and I think the shifting would be better with the 5 speed tranny on the 250 better than the 6 speeds on the 225.I know some will say that the very low 1st gear on the 225 is better for tight technical work on trails but I find it a PITA for street riding.You no sooner roll 2 or 3 feet from a stop and you need to go to 2nd gear with the 225.
I personally would opt for the new XT250 over the 225 for no more than the price difference is.
