Yep, I think the bike is physically the same as your current 250. If you go back a bit in time our DR250 was quite different (our DR250 is a de-stroked and sleeved DR350 - dry sump motor, round frame tubes). We do have quite a difficult govt when it comes to vehicles. Not that the DRZ250 that you get wouldn't satisfy our govt, just that it would cost a fortune to certify it as such, making it not worth the cost for mfg's to certify some of their bikes for road use.
