HONDA XR 250 vs XR 250 Baja

  1. Hi all,

    A few days ago, I saw a HONDA XR 250 BAJA in CNX.
    What are the differences (engine, frame, body parts...) with the HONDA XR 250 "standard"? Apart of the front lights for sure!
    And what is better to have some fun in trails?

    Thanks!
     
  2. No real difference, but if you ride at night the lights are better on the Baja, but they don't turn with the bars. There may or may not be a HP difference, but I never noticed it.
     
  3. Yes, the fuel tank is a little bigger on the Baja but not much...and of course the lights are far better on the Baja but really ugly, apart from that they are the same Xr's . Also available as well as the enduro Xr is the motard version of the Xr which has upside down forks. :)
     
  4. The Baja seat is wider than the XR seat

    I prefer the Baja for the wider seat and bigger tank.
    As for the headlight, not that impressed with baja lights, non halogen 35W if I remember correctly.

    Would probably go aftermarket if I wanted a decent headlight, whether it be the baja or the XR.
