depends on what kind fo race, and how long of a stretch you have to do it..the 250 dirt bike will win on the low end, but unless the 250cc 2stroke will do 120+ and stay there, the 250 will come up on it.

the ex 250 is designed as a "grocery getter".. sure the 250 has more top end power that can take it to 120ish, but a 4 stroke 250 is nothing compared to the low end of a 2stroke..its just one of the many differences from a 2 and a 4 stroke engine... also, if you gear the 2stroke 250 right, it'll outrun the ex 250 from 0-120+

well see. if someone were to turn their 250 2 stroke dirt bike into a motard, they'd gear it for the road course which would keep from burning up the engine.. and not every 2 stroke will take a 4, but an aprillia rs 250 will give an r6, or any 600 or maybe 750 SS bike a run for their money.

And calling the 250 the grocery getter is what people have always described it as..its cheap on gas, its user friendly, its not too powerful..etc

the difference between 2stroke dirtbikes and 2 stroke road race bikes is almost like night and day. dirt 2 strokes arent ment to ti be drag raced. thats. the rs 250 can run at highspeeds for a much longer time because its a 2 stroke v twin. instead of a single cylinder big bore motor thats meant to constantly be shifting up and down.

the old rd 350's and 400's are are so much fun to ride.. they are like the wheelie kings.. all you gotta do is just roll on the throttle and you can ride little powe wheelies all day long.

well the owner is gettin pretty old, so he may of put the gas tank somewhere and forgot:D and yeah, the place only has 1 employee thats not in the family.. its only john senior, john j.r., john seniors wife, and me working there, and we get along just fine.. you'd have to see the shop to understand how it all ticks.
