The same thing applies to the CRF230L, with it's simple, air cooled carbureted engine. I admit I didn't like the 230L as much as my XT225, but after seeing the third world made, poser CRF250L, with it's "new technology" I would gladly pay the $500 more for a Japan made CRF230L. Unfortunately that choice is no longer available.
Hmm..I just picked up a CRF230L and was considering an XT225. What did you like better on the XT225 than the CRF?
