The 250 will make a good Dual Sport bike after a few changes, and like it has been said you can go to the license branch, and get a plate for it.
the 230 was a half-ass old tech attempt by honda.
this new bike will use a very modern engine.
i'm sure the wr250r was sorta of a walk up call and has proven as a seller.
