THE RESULTS ARE IN &
THE WINNER IS...
us four months of constantly pitting
each new bike against the others.
Sometimes we would take all six
bikes with us to a race; sometimes
we would take just two bikes for a
day of riding, but by the time we
were ready to put pen to paper, we
had tried everything possible. We
understand that buying a new bike is
an investment—and we want you to
know what you are buying.
Never in the history of MXA’s 250
four-stroke testing have we had such
a tight finishing order. Two bikes
stood out among the field, but third
place could have easily gone to any
one of four bikes. There is a bike for
everyone in this year’s graduating
class. In the end, it all comes down
to personal preferences; in this case,
the MXA test riders’ personal prefer-
ences. But it’s your money, so read
each one of our opinions carefully
before opening your wallet.
