Vital is an odd place. My taste in bikes, motocross bona-fides, earning ability, life outlook - that's all up for debate based simply on my saying that the '21 rmz250 was kind of in the middle of its class weight-wise; Which is something that is verifiably ... more »

I'll probably have to return the Rickman back to the Rickman dealer for falsely putting MX in the name. Let me go dig around for my receipt...

The '21 RMZ250 is lighter than both the '21 YZF250 and '21 CRF250

Also all 450s make lots of power, stock or modified. But the factory 250s are absolute monsters.

Hard Disagree. '90 Flo KX colorway gear and the clean green/blue Kawi 2T with the '88 graphics is straight-up fire

I respect the hustle, but it seems like Cole is throwing the kitchen sink at trying to monetize a personal brand that just doesn't outwardly seem as significant as the people around him probably say it is. He is not a celebrity. He is not a major social ... more »

ALL 250s need a lot of work to be competitive at the factory-level and the KX is the only one that was new for 2021

Plus a big switch to air forks! Those things look really lightweight.

SX likely won't even be on live TV period next year. NBC Sports, their cable partner from last year is ending cable tv service at the end of this year, to be replaced by NBC's streaming-only platforms. But even if that wasn't the case, the rise of streaming ... more »
