Dirt Rider magazine recently got some time with the Honda 250X. “Honda’s off-road line-up hasn’t changed much in several years, with the exception of new graphics and a white rear fender. The 450X and 250X are the same stout and proven machines they’ve been for years, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing,” wrote Dirt Rider’s Michael Allen. “It can be hard to improve on a solid off-road platform without making it a closed-course machine. I got a chance to ride the 250X for an extended test–a 24-hour test, to be exact. I decided to Ironman the 24 Hours of Glen Helen and I became well acquainted with the X, finding all the strong and weak points of the almost bone-stock ride. I came away with a new respect for the small bore off-road bike that everyone seems to write off as a wife’s trail bike.” To read the full report, click here.
