Too big for me. I’ll stick with my 250. Actually, my 250 is too much for my skill levels.

I don't make 'em up, I just repeat 'em...

Same website says Tomac is racing a 250 two stroke this weekend in the 450 class.

My 1989 CR500 was a blast. Never raced it, but was the ultimate desert bike. Put a one off Motoplat ignition in it, and it was by far the fastest bike I’ve ever ridden. That includes an assortment of 450 four strokes. Go Big Red!

I'd buy one and ride it like a rental... Wonder what rebuild cost are compared to a 4 stroke?

The Honda CR500 article says 95 bhp and 180 pounds. Holy shit. Top speed 85? So a track bike close ratio trans sounds like. Hopefully a balance shafts to save your hands this time.

If the Honda CR is real, I’m doing whatever I can to get one. That would be badass. :cool:

Just buy that RMZ in the “off-road for sale” section, it has more usable power than anyone here needs.

I was racing a CR500 and a KX250 in the early 90's. The CR put me in the hospital with an ambulance ride from Carlsbad Raceway. It would get head shake bad at speed. I took it to Star West once and realized it was too much of a handful on a supercross style track. It made the 250 seem like a piece of cake to toss around.

This would be badass!! Loved my blood red '89 CR500!! Even though production wise the KX500 was the fastest...
