It looks badass but I can’t find any reviews yet. Has anyone ridden one, and how do you think it will stack up to the YZ250Fx when that bike is revamped next year?

I've heard good things but haven't ridden one yet. From riding all the Yamaha bikes and the Honda moto bike, I'd say the Honda is going to struggle with bottom end grunt power. I could be wrong but that's just my educated guess. I think I'll be going to the intro fro Keefer in early December.

We haven't even seen them yet. Honda hasn't released them as far as I am aware. At least they aren't showing availability on HondaIN as of right now. Would be pretty soon I would hope.

Even a broken clock is right twice a day.

I love my Honda's but I don't have very high expectations. It looks to me like they have used the MX gearbox in it, which unfortunately doesn't really work where I ride. I prefer yamaha's approach of using the WR as the base for their CC bike. I guess it's not an issue for true "Cross country", but at the end of the day, most of these bikes seem to end up on fairly normal trails. I have a feeling Honda have abandoned any idea of releasing a new 250x - reason being the new crf250f they've unveiled which is the CRF230, with 4 valves, 20cc more, bigger forks, twin discs, efi etc. and 116kg no fuel.
