Well... I had an 2001 RM250 for a couple years, barely rode it because of time constraints, sold it. Really miss it, but now it seems like the bike to have are the CRF-X's. or the WRs I'm pretty set on buying the Honda because both bikes get great reviews, that twin spar frame is awesome, and the bike just looks kick a$$. I ride trails only, and I am looking towards the 450x because I'm kinda used to the more than ample amount of power my RM250 had... So.. I know a guy who just got a CRF250X and said the power is sweet and should be plenty.. He's around 5'10 and 190ish. I'm 5'8 160ish.. The 250x is probably just fine for me, but I'm the kind of fool who always goes for the gusto because I don't want to say "should have just got the 'better, bigger' one." At $7199 the price is a little steep, but man that bike sure looks sweet. I will def. ride the 250x before I buy, but even if the 250x feels good, the grass is always greener on the other side... So.. decisions, decision.. what do you think?
