1StefenM: I can vouch for the 2013 Honda CRF250L- rented one last year in Thailand for a 800km road trip over 5 days. It surpassed every expectation. Good power, fun on the twisties, easy to strap a pack to, starts everytime without fail, economical and all around fun. Im 6'1, 186lbs and it seemed to fit me perfectly.
Ended up on some mountain trails that i would even be hesitant to take a Trials or Motocross bike on, but the 250L smashed through them without too much trouble. Only complaint that it was a little heavy on inclines that steep.
On normal country roads, back roads and reasonable offroad track- the 250L is a treat!
jamen brooks: Fuel injection over carburetor any day
Declan kot: I've watched a lot of reviews that favor one thing versus the other and it seems unbiased but it seems like you never say anything good about the kawi and only things about the honda
altruistic: They fail to mention the Honda also has a helmet lock and seat pegs.
rodrigo andres aracena yanzon: Kawasaki <3
noppaienduro: for a dirt track .. for sure i jump to crf250L on dirt crf250L it is alot better than klx250s beleave me
Uros Cirkovic: Yeah, Honda is superior in off-road cause of the pegs and tires. Who cares about the Kawasaki's adjustable suspension, who needs suspension for off-road riding... Paid fckin clip.
NoHumanNoCry: Kawasaki <3
Jeremiah Johnson: What a load of crap
ossa60: in a dirt dual purpose bike one will always choose the one with the better suspensión....the klx.
ossa60: apart from that 600 dólar difference, I'm not convinced that the honda can be any better.
Robert Urban: what a idiotic review, first of all klx250 has fuel injection version for years in Europe. Second of all klx250 is way superior bike for off-road use mostly because far better adjustable suspension. Honda crf250 is for Sunday church riding....
Average Paul: I live in Fullerton, California. Can you street legalize a honda crf 450r? Like, get it registered and put all the stuff like head lights, turn signals, brake lights, and whatknot?
MrJumbolegz: We need to do away with those stupid emission standards. You have these bikes getting close to 70 mpg whereas a hummer or lexus gets like 10-15 and passes the standards. It's bullcrap. These companies really need to add some models to the range, why is there no 350 or 500 enduro? All they do is keep slapping ABS crap on everything and packaging it as a new bike. If I wanted that useless techy crap I'd buy a minivan.
kawasaki fan: honda payed them for this video ha jk , I'm a kawasaki fan, there trying to make kawasaki look bad when its a great bike!
shamrock75: The Honda looks cheap just like their Chinese clones.They can try and style them more like the kawis and ktm but they still have that cheap look I can't get past.Fuel injection is common but unless you can personally tune it isnt a plus for anyone serious about offroad riding,maybe its ok for girls who dont ride much.
Cristian Alpha: "If it aint broke, don't fix it" The KLX hasn't had anything changed in the recent years because it was a superior bike over the Honda. Honda had to reinvent their 250 because it was slacking (But that's just my opinion). I've ridden both, and have had my 09 KLX250S ever since. Still going strong. If I were to buy a new bike I would still consider them both again. Although in regards to the Honda, just the added fuel injection on a smaller bike, and the added fuel gauge wouldn't convince me much.
