Hopefully the CRF250L is on a lighter weight program than the street CBR version, which is 357 lbs claimed w/full tank. So maybe it weighs 325 lbs+- dry?
(figuring in its 3.4 gal tank)
Too much for a street going thumper.

My prerequisite of a light bike seems to be lost in the modern era.
You do get more in a modern bike, including more weight.
