HP @ 9,000 RPM = 55.6

I'm glad I bought a CR250 2 stroke and will keep my piggies for the time being :awww:

Yep, it's finally officially announced on Honda's HRCA web site and on its way.

I highly doubt it.

I second that, but it would not stop me from owning one. :thumbsup:

Here comes the flood of used XR650R's for sale. I think I will have to get a second one and perhaps super motard it :thumbsup:

Damn, I hope you are right. I'd love to have one as a second bike for a dual sport. :thumbsup:

That's exactly what I just did. I just bought another used 2001 XR650R very cheap and its still corked with the original tires, etc. I plan to D/S and or Motard it :thumbsup:

You ain't gettin my XR650R, I will always keep one around. They is awsome. The CRF450X will just be another horse in the stables. I won't be buying another new bike for a couple years. By then my 525EXC will have 6 or 7 thousand miles on it and in need of overhaul. A good time to trade in on a CRF :devil:

I have to admit that the 650R has been the best all around bike that I have owned to date (CR125, CR250, XR350, KLX250, XT350, XR600, XR250....Etc) Since I am only allowed by the boss to have one bike for Dad (whole other topic) then this is the bike for me. I did make the mistake of allowing my 14 yr old to ride the BRP the last time out. I think the second one would have to be for him :thumbsup:

That's what happened to me. I let my 14 year old ride my BRP and he's hooked. He still likes his XR250, but he's on my BRP whenever he gets a chance. He's also taking a liking to the CR250, but someday we'll squeeze a CRF450X in there or perhaps the CRF600X when its released late next year.

I told him he could ride it when he could start it. Sure enough he jumped up and wham it fire up. I told him to take it easy until he got used to it. That lasted for about 75 yards and then all I could ever see again was dust. When I did catch up with him I will never forget the look on his face :thumbsup: "Dad this thing is a rocketship" He spent the next week telling all of the neighbor kids about how he rode Dad's 650R. Got to love it :devil:

i'll get the 450x when it comes out. i've been waiting for something that will help me in the tighter races like the national enduros and i also want to race some of the hare scrambles up north.

but i'm with you guys, between now and when i get the 450x i'm gonna try to find the cleanest/newest dual sported 650r i can get, pull all my race stuff off my 03 and sell it, and use the newer 650r for hare & hounds and rides out of my garage.

i love the 650r too much to just give it up. i think it still has plenty of applications, both racing and riding, to make it irreplacable.

it just will be cool to have something i could ride in say the idaho qualifier or the moose run up in ill.

btw: did you hear all the &%$#@! on the crf forum bitchin about the weight. jezus christ. one of them was saying the the extra weight is gonna keep him from turning around on a tight trail. squids...
