Why does there seem to be so many more Honda CRF-R's for sale than X's?

I'm keeping my eyes out for a barely ride CRF250x or CRF450x (Yamaha WR's too) and I seem to find about 5 of the "R" Race models for every one of the "X" trail models. Is it that Honda sells much more of the R model therefore there are less X models on the used market?

Or is it that owners of the X models just rarely sell them?

The R can be a great woods bike if you do the suspension, flywheel weight, drop the gearing a little, add a skidplate & barkbusters.... a lot to change I know but they run waaay better & can be found cheaper.
No button though Not an issue IF the valves are good & jetted right.

Just my 2 cents, my son & I both ride R's.
