TWO-STROKE SPOTLIGHT | $20,000 BRAND NEW HONDA CR250 IN BOX
A brand new CR250 still in the crate.
Want a brand new Honda CR250 two-stroke? Back in 2007 a CR250 off the showroom floor retailed for $6449. Who would have thought that people would be selling them for more than three times more over a decade later? The industry thought smokers were dead! Well, whoever this guy from Canada is that thought CR250’s would be a good investment he must have had a crystal ball. Check out the website below to get details on the crated brand new CR250. https://www.kijiji.ca/v-dirt-bikes-motocross/calgary/honda-cr250r/1462673683?undefined

WHAT THE MXA WRECKING CREW IS UP TO
Is had been a long time in the works but MXA, MRE and KX Guru Racing finally came together for the ultimate 500cc shootout. Both bikes have 2016 KTM 250SXF chassis’ with the red bike having a CR500 engine and the green bike a KX500 engine. Both these bikes are anything but stock. We are doing a full shootout in the February issue of MXA.
We called this bike a KTX500e. Yes the “e” stands for electric start.
And we called MRE’s build the KTR500. Ain’t she pretty.
Josh Mosiman started as the KTX500e tester.
While Ezra Lewis rode the KTR500.
