This bike doesn't feel like any 250 dualsport bike that I've ever ridden....it feels more like my old DRZ 400 (minus the weight, which is odd because my old DRZ was the "E" model, which actually weighed less than this 250...
I put 115 miles on this weekend. Break in miles on country roads. Lot's of hills and twisty turns.
This baby pulls great and it definitely feels lighter than my DR350. Can't wait to hit some trails next weekend.
