Freddy Troche: im thinking on buying a klr 650 or a crf250, what its your advice?
Northaleus Velanthor: I HATE finicky little bitches! They're just so hard to turn on in the morning, but when they're finally up and going, they ride well!
69adrummer: Unless you are 165 pounds, do NOT even think about the Honda!
Poul Hansen: which should i choose crf 250 l or klx250s? I live in Denmark where the klx250s got efi
Jonas Klx 250s: in europe the klx is with efi 2009 and up
stef25ify: That finicky little bitch!
CoffeeBuffed GR: I am the owner of a humble 1998 Yamaha XT225 serow. Νο liquid-cooling , (not even oil-cooling), telescopic fork, rear shock has air assistance (and preload if i can recall) 1 carb that can be adjusted easily unlike injection, 20 hp and 115 KG OF WET WEIGHT! Why do 250 dualsports have to be almost 150 kg with same power and worst performance? Where is the point of 35 extra kg of ''technology'' when 80's technology does it better(especially off-road). I am not against innovation but i feel we are being fooled for paying around 5000+Euros (or 5500 usd if you prefer) for these anemic bikes. Give them technology but make them lighter or at least more power full...seriously 22 hp at the engine from a liquid-cooled-4 valve/cylinder 250cc 4-stroke? Why even bother with the liquid-cooling? :D At least the WR250 has 30hp and with 15kg less...I may sound like a yamaha fun but just thing about it and correct me if im so wrong!
ebuff57: I wish they'd make these dual purpose motorcycles shorter. Like a 32" seat height would be nice.
More Bad Ideas: bout time the Honda won something on theses shoot outs lol
Mark Lee: Most would say the Kawi is a better off-road bike due to better suspension. The more I see this review the more I think it's a poor comparison that misses the mark.
I think Kawi is treating this bike as a cash cow. They don't want to retool for the US to pass CARB standards. If they could simply bring the EFI bike from Europe they would. Take note that Kawi USA has not released a 2015 or 2016 KLX250S. What I have heard is that they can't pass emissions. And yes, it's also possible that the KLX250S is not a profitable line for them. They soldier on with the KLR650 though.
Demon Pig.: Horrible review. They just got stuck on the carb vs FI dilemma.
Sports Highlights Channel: can anyone tell me the minimum height required to ride these bike with ease?
justwhatever: Didn't mention suspension, weight, top speed, ergonomics....
Ali Mohammed: Great video! I'm planning on a long trip (~4k miles) with 70/30 road/off-road riding. Will these 250s fair well in such trips??
Negative Person: Im gona get one of these bikes cant wait...
bomb00000: so its 2015 nothing haves changed expect that the KLX and the CRF are just $100 apart! If only the KLX was fuel injected I would have gotten it.
Break Man: So what if in your country KLX comes with EFI and you can get model year 2012 new 0 kilometers on it for 15% less money then CRF250L which only sells current model year. CRF still remains more modern, more comfortable, maybe even more economical machine..
tosgem: No mention of WR250R? It chews these up and spits them out all over the ground, haha
EDIT - also, between these two, the Kawasaki beats the CRF in a race, and it's 20kg lighter. I'd go for the Kawasaki
CycleCruza: It's 2015 and they are STILL making bikes with carbs, unbelievable. Message to japanese manufacturers: Update your dual sports already!
Cristino Mendez: HONDA ♥
