I had the 230L, and I know why they would show that bike on the track, because it was about an 80/20 bike 80 being street. It was nice it got about 95 mpg, but would get stuck in ruts off road due to the lower pegs. My guess is they are making it a 250 now because the 230 would top out at about 60 with stock gearing. The 250 will make a good Dual Sport bike after a few changes, and like it has been said you can go to the license branch, and get a plate for it.

the 230 was a half-ass old tech attempt by honda.
this new bike will use a very modern engine.
i'm sure the wr250r was sorta of a walk up call and has proven as a seller.

I agree with you I only owned it for 1 year, but it did what I wanted it to do which was be a scooter that could go on fire trails.

hardly the 1st time that a rep doesn't know about a bike coming down the pike.

And the DRZ400-KLX400 is what?


Honda can be the first to go 450 and everyone else will follow.

An upgrade from the DR350, from the time of the TT 350, KLX 300 and XR400.

I can just imagine a 450 version though...

All the weight of a 650 with the power of a 250.

So, expect a CRF650L to be forthcoming as well?

One can only beg/pray/plead/threaten/etc...
