There can be an advantage to an engine size smaller 650cc in some Enduro as it is nearly always lighter, means it has easier handling for around trees, obstacles, However, in some Enduro the larger bike sizes them to get up hills without down a gear or even


The trend since the 2000s, though, has been to use MX bikes as the platforms for Enduro This was partially driven by the of MX from 2-… to 4-… designs to comply with trends. Enduro or so-called or Dual-sport (dual because are capable of moderate off-road and street-performance, while excelling at traditionally had a much higher of 4-… models.

The power-to-weight ratio of these trail bikes wasn’t by today’s standards, and that had to do the lack of emphasis on meeting a lower-limit. When the conversion to MX bikes began, there was an emphasis on power-to-weight ratios for 4-… motorcycles, because 125 and 250 MX have minimum weight

This issue has apparently rectified on the 2006 models, due to a valve-seat material change on the head. In contrast, the comparable TE250. which is purpose for Enduro riding, is not only low by comparison, but the types of maintenance are required more frequently on that are used in Enduros are easier to do because the bike was with those procedures as a concern, such as valve and adjustments.
