If I still lived up in the North East I think an XR250 would be close to perfect for the trails I ride up there; I rarely get out of 2nd gear on my KX250 in the trails near my folks place in W. Mass.
I agree it's a shame. Why didn't they just change some plastic and call it the CRF250(whatever). I have no doubt it would still do decent in todays market.
