Power
This bikes motor is amazing! The power comes on strong and builds fast from the bottom all the way to the top! You can short shift it, or rev it out to the moon! The power delivery is smooth, and monsterous!
Suspension
The front is very plush and soaks up every thing without hesitating at all. The rear is also plush, but can be finicky sometimes on deep rough stuff.
Brakes
Brakes are excellent!, Nuff said!
Comments
This is definately a bike worth checking out if you are a serious motocross racer!

Power
I have a 2002 kx250. I spent two days riding a buddy's in phoenix on open trails / a mx track. I hate the powerband of a 4 stroke. Maybe I'm just used to a 2 stroke.
Suspension
Too Rigid. My back was sore after the doubles. It may be an adjustability issue, but the bike seems EXTERMELY heavy, espesically if you're used to a two stroke.
Brakes
No complaints.
Comments
I hope 4 stroke technology is not the "wave" of the future. The two strokes seem lighter and pull harder out of the corners, once you learn how to keep them in their powerbands. I had great expectations for this bike after reading the good reviews it got from MX Action. I was really dissapointed with it's actual performance. I can pull much faster track times with my KX. My KX feels much lighter, is easier to ride, and the suspension is 10X better. I have no idea why the KX gets such bad reviews from all the fruit platter homos out in california.
