  6. What a Peach.

    I've always thought the WR 250 was miles better than the 450 for relaxed usable riding. Today I rode my mates 450 and directly after rode the Honda XR250 R-2, this one - what a contrast,what suspension,what a bike ! I'd say this bike is a better bike for Trails/green lanes than any other...
