Well there is no new big Honda thumper for 2008 (yet). But they did dual sport the CRF230

And a nice fuel injected Yamaha dual sport:

That yamaha is pretty nice,fuel injected, alloy frame, and inverted forks from the get go. Still its at the same price as our "L" is. I always put engine displacement in my top category.:crazy:

Just like used dual sport bikes. I agree, the Yamaha is nice. Would be even better if it were a 450. Some people whine about the 250s weight. If they'd make a 450 that weighed that much they'd sell a million or so.

That exhaust on the Yammie looks ugly.

Is this what is has come to with no 650R, discussing the new 250s ?

Maybe Honda will do the same with the big bores as they did with their 2 strokes, phase them out, and then have them built per order at inflated prices at ServiceHonda.

Both the Yami and Honda are underpowered and way overpriced for 250s...I can buy several 5 or 6 Lifans for the same price!
