Did this video help you?

Broseph Stalin: How well does the CRF or KLX ride at highway speeds? Could I take either of these bikes on the freeway no problem?

David Outlaw: So are any of these automatic? I'm new to this

GisaK Oner: so which is better?

jack schitt: Kawi should put FI and match Honda price they got a winner

Limoman7: Looking to buy a 250 dual sport this year. Too bad Kawasaki does not offer FI

Gashaw Arega: gasharegat@ yahoo.com

GucciGerman: Honda 250... Is beautiful! I'm looking for my first bike. Never ridden one before. I have lots of biking and skating experience. I'm 5'11, will the Honda be hard to stand with at a stop light for me? I'm mostly going to be riding to school and around town. But the dual sport is appealing since I won't want to kill myself if I drop it hahah. Good bike for a beginner? Thanks anyone who helps out! 

turbo311: I wonder if the CRF will get upgraded to a 300cc when the CBR300R arrives since they share an engine, or will it stay a 250? It would benefit from the extra torque I'm sure. 

Gashaw Arega: we need to buy 20 FCL and distribute z one wiz automatic transmission. Pls send me your e-mail asap.

jophet sean amorte: crfl is fuel injection nice for gas saver,but klx is has a speed....but your gas is just a mouthwash...

mistermodified1: Throttle response trouble with newer carburated stuff isn't because carbs are bad. It's because the stupid emissions laws force manufacturers to run carburated engines super lean to meet the standards. 2009 yamaha xt250 I have needs to warm up with partial choke for a hundred years even on warmer days. In the winter at 20 degrees, you can crank it and crank it with full choke and it won't even fire. Simple answer I think is to just jet it a bit richer. Fuel injection is nice till you have the bike a few years and something gets messed up and you can't work on it yourself.

David santos sweden: Kawasaki is very nice bike 

autocrow: We want a dirt bike that is street legal. ANY bike will work on the street, NOT any bike will work in the dirt. These are "compromised". When will they give us what we really want? A serious dirt bike with a friggin' license plate!

MrManslaghuter: dont forget the honda 5 spd transmission vs the kawi 6 spd transmission.

Zin Bo Aung: Kawasaki good

David santos sweden: Kawasaki is very nice bike 

Pikwhip: Would love to see this comparison again with the KLX offering EFI this year.

PeteyK473: No neither are auto,and the Honda started unlike the Kawi.Forget big bore kits only an idiot would take apart a new engine.A Bigger bike to consider would be the Suzuki Drz 400.Don't forget these are only quarter litre bikes.They will scream when on anything with speeds in excess of 100km/h. (60mph).

Kevin J: Nonadjustable suspension, the winner can only be the KLX

TS50ER: If anything that Honda should be called an 'XL', the CR badge conjures up images of rip-snorting world-class dirt machines, and I feel this bike sallies the lineage in some ways. As for the KLX, they need a bit of work to get the best out of: aftermarket pipe, racing carb, and 300cc hop up kit will transform it. The CRs are manufactured in Thailand, hence the cheaper pricing. The good news is that there are plenty around now in S.E Asia, which sure beats riding scooters when on holiday.:)

Zin Bo Aung: Kawasaki good

Jason Melo: The seat hight on these bikes are too high

gartsful: They have no idea what they are talking about, they don't even know proper off road riding positions. To say the bikes are built with light trails, tells me they are RTF. They just repeat the specifications of the bike, but don't really put the bikes to the test, totally JUNK reniew!

guy proulx: the fit and finish of honda is way better than kawasaki and the honda reliability is far greater also, fuel economy is also better with honda, therefore honda is a better buy all around, the honda is cheaper to buy, go figure lol

Abbas ERDOĞAN: Bence bu segmentte WR 250 YAMAHA 

William Burns III: How short are those little men?

frankenz26: Crf engine is from cbr..

Thomas Duhig: Fuel injected honda? Im sold

Mark Hoagland: lol!!! "It was a finicky little bitch today, wasn't it?"

Ricky Beck: Like Old School Kawasaki 

ZotoMoto13: If you're serious about getting a 250 dual sport, its a better idea to buy a Yamaha wr250r ( of course if your budget allows). the Yamaha has a newer better engine which gives much better performance. But then again the Kawasaki and Honda are both great bikes.

Sir Fedswith: If you are going off road, get the lightest bike you can, tires and fueling(jetting) can always be changed, but a heavy bike ain't going to get much lighter, heavier is NOT what you want to be picking up or trying to muscle around when you should be having fun off road... get the lighter one...

cardchris21: with the handa can u change out the rear shock and swap it for a adjustable shock? i kinda want to know i have like 250 lbs and i just kinda wondering wat kind of a ride will it give me and wat other bikes should i look at i want a duel sport but i kinda new at well riding so just want a good bang for my buck i want one that has power and get up and go but not to much that will throw me off the bike when i take off

bottwaandcalover: Yeah, I chose between these two. Was a hard choice, for sure. The honda felt too low and wide, and its also a bit heavier. For my body type the kawa felt more natural. The carb is a bit of an annoyance... but thats all it is; an annoyance. It will always start, it will always get you there. Make sure before you get drawn into a conclusion to actually sit on the bike in question. 

Mavrick Cruise: What song is that in the beginning, god I can't wait to get a dual purpose, all around Oahu 

Garth W: I just bought a 250, was looking at the honda and rode both at the dealer, The thing that made me choose the Kawi was either bike didn't have enough power for me, but i wanted the nimble light weight 250. I normally ride my Honda VTX1800, its nice having a little maneuverable bike too. But I chose the Kawi because i planed on modding it. I did a rejet, new exhaust, opened up the intake, HID conversion, Rear rack and trunk and many other mods. My Kawi will walk all over the honda now, its a real screamer. You can't do those mods with FI, your stuck with the way the bike is from the factory. Unless you want to do a ton of remapping the FI, and spend tons of cash doing it, but then again you wont get the power of a modded klx250s. I have never had any problems starting my kawi, it started right up in stock and modded form in any weather and any altitude.

TheHenry4: WR250 is not in this class the XT250 is. The WR is in the same price class as the DRZ400, KLR650, DR650, XR650 price class.

jack schitt: at 320 lbs, crf250l is not light weight.

frankenz26: honda the best

CoolStoryBro603: 5:55 haha. Fuel injected Honda dirtbike ? freaking awesome!

Chester Little: Honda vs Kawasaki and Honda wins. Why I am not so surprised, after all if we need to compare the features, the comfort, the stability on the road and the price definitely Honda will be what most of the bikers will choose.

Oswaldo Ortiz: me pueden hacer el favor de colocarle subtitulos en español. gracias.

HJZ75driver: buy it! wont go wrong.

HJZ75driver: no running lights in Aus mate ;) just indicators.

plaid13: lots of reviews on this bike out there but none comparing it to its only real competitor the wr250r. of course we know its better then a old design with a carb. what about the yamaha with a very similar setup? and honestly stop looking at the tires on test rides. tires are changed almost as often as oil thats not a selling point. Everyone rides differently so everyone likes different tires. It is not important to mention them.

Charley Osgood: Kawi every day

walkyree honda: but i like yamaha DT 125 MX 1985 go to the forest in THAILAND

Darkamerica91: Honda 4 life!

GraymanTactics: I'm considering this as well. Glad to hear you like it.

ericbusa: I test rode both and the Honda wins hands down better bike by far the kaw is gutless to the Honda see my review
