Has anyone have any comments on the new DRZ250? How much power,weight issue? An aircooled electric start sounds nice, no radiator worries.

There were some posts a while back. You might do a search and see what comes up. I think that I remember truespode picked on up his wife to ride. Maybe he will post. I also member someone else about that same time posting about getting one to.

They are a fine bike for someone who enjoys just putting around.

A better option if you like the e-start is the TTR 250. This one has more hp and feels lighter to most riders.

If you can live without the e-start, the XR250 will spank both of the above in weight, trail manners and rideability.

This info gleaned from magazine tests, and my own saddle time.
