Man, I do not know about that. I believed that at one time (about this time last year) but Honda had the audacity to get rid of the XR250 and XR400. That is a giant hole as neither the CRF250X nor the CRF450X can hold a candle to the market that these bikes filled. Dual sport one of those and take off on a 2500 mile ride? Never.
yeah but think about it...the XR250 was extremely slow, stopped selling long before they stopped making it. The XR400 was cool when it first came out but you wouldn't want to take it on a long ride either. One of our riders did Copper Canyon on one and it just wasn't quite right. Dependable yes. Honda will make only so many models, new ones come, old ones must go. I believe they will stay in the market. I had notes on the dirt bike sales by state . Will try to find them. It is still significant.
