Is that the new fuel injected mini Honda?
Yes, this is the 2013 Honda CRF250L. FI, 6spd, 1 radiator just like the WRR.

How are you liking it compared to the WR2?
The CRFL is a keeper; the WRR is on the chopping block.

Rick, the clearance isn't quite as high on the Honda. Is that noticeable to you? Would love it if you'd do a topic with a side-by-side comparison.

Yep. Color is showing up all over. I just bought c.vestal's bike, so snow can't be too far behind.

Handling - CRFL feels lighter because the weight is lower (less suspension travel and ground clearance).
Stink bug attitude - the CRFL seat is almost level - the WRR sticks up in the back.
Comfort - the CRFL feels more comfortable to me - my butt is happy.
Tranny - the CRFL is smoother.
Sound - the CRFL is much quieter (80db vs 82db stock).
Color - I like Honda red.
Stable - I have all CRFs now. (CRF250X, 3xCRF230F, CRF250L)
Power - the WRR has much more, but the CRFL is not even broke-in and doesn't have an FI tuner yet.

Yes, and it is a plus for me. I do not plan to ride the CRFL on single-track trails, only dirt roads, 4WD routes, and ATV trails. Even less travel and ground clearance would not be a problem for me.

Well, there's this:
WR250R vs CRF250L
http://rickramsey.net/WR250RvsCRF250L.htm

Perhaps I'll do a web page after I get an FI tuner and new muffler on the CRFL for a fair comparison to my WRR.
