Husqvarna’s most-improved bike
of 2016 is the FC250 motocross
four-stroke. Last year it lacked
the top-end power of its brother-in-law, the KTM 250SXF, but now
both have a completely new motor,
and the two are neck and neck.
Its intake, exhaust, clutch and
bodywork are unlike the KTM’s, but
it still has electric start.
HONDA CRF250R: $7599
Honda’s CRF250R remains one of
the best-handling motocross bikes
available. It still has a proprietary
version of the Showa Triple Air fork,
twin exhausts and Honda’s HPSD
steering damper. This year the motor
got a number of updates to keep the
power output in the running in the
highly competitive 250F ranks.
