Question CRF250L or DR200SE

Hey guys I'm hoping for some reviews on Suzuki and Honda's bottom end dual sports. I'm having trouble finding information on these. Anyone have one? Or have ridden one? I have concerns about power, especially with the 200cc Suzuki even though I"ve heard it is a good match to the 250's. Also what kind of suspension do these have? Gas milage? Can I carry a decent amount of luggage? I heard there is a Honda performance kit available? Also I have never ridden a liquid cooled. Are they "fragile" in case of a crash? Any advice would be appreciated.

I would think if you searched google you will find hours of reading on both bikes.

First off, this probably shouldn't be in the "Beasts" subforum...

My fiance has a 2005 DR200SE that she absolutely loves. It's slow, and a bit ugly... but they're bulletproof and great fun. Quick steering, super light (she's 5'2 and about 120lb and can still pick it up).

She's been riding hers every single day (we don't have a car right now) for the last 2 months, and every day during the summer (no freeway). It hasn't missed a beat. It's a GREAT little bike

You can kinda see it back there, before I built some panniers for it.
