Which 217 Dirt Bike should I buy?
Once again I’m looking for a new dirt bike after more than 5 years without a ride and my gear collecting dust in the shed.
My previous ride was a 28 Honda CRF45R but now I’ve pretty much settled on a 217 KX25F based on my budget and riding style. If you are also looking for a 25 or 45 dirt bike then you might as well start with the list of links I’ve compiled for 217 dirt bike shootouts, first rides and reviews.
In the 25 class, Kawasaki has a whole new package for 217, Husqvarna and KTM have replaced the under performing forks with arguably the finest production air forks available. Yamaha has continued to make refinements to the YZ of which some have not been well received. As for Honda and Suzuki there are no significant changes from the 216 models.
