Did this video help you?

Morten Christensen: Soo why is it that my klx 250 ....2012 have fuel injektion ?? when this one does not?? It even says on kawasakis home page that it has fuel injektion. 

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.... 

The Pedobear: 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? 

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.

ossa60: apart from that 600 dólar difference, I'm not convinced that the honda can be any better.

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!

ossa60: in a dirt dual purpose bike one will always choose the one with the better suspensión....the klx.

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.

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!

alexinnitro2: klx250 has fuel injection, but even if it didn't, with a smaller bike like that it would probably be better to have carbs since you can throw a jet kit, exhaust and a better air filter and get better performance. 

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!

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.

Ricky Beck: Like Old School Kawasaki 

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).

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.

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

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

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. 

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?

ms argentino: la klx 250s es la mejor del mundo 

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

Gashaw Arega: gasharegat@ yahoo.com

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

Worship Skaten: 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! 

Garth DUBYA: 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.

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.

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

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

David santos sweden: Kawasaki is very nice bike 

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

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

David santos sweden: Kawasaki is very nice bike 

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

William Burns III: How short are those little men?

Zin Bo Aung: Kawasaki good

GisaK Oner: so which is better?

frankenz26: Crf engine is from cbr..

Abbas ERDOĞAN: Bence bu segmentte WR 250 YAMAHA 

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.

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

Zin Bo Aung: Kawasaki good

Thomas Duhig: Fuel injected honda? Im sold

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...

nVuS bloodrage: 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

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

frankenz26: honda the best

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 

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

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