A versatile all-around model ideal for welcoming younger enthusiasts to the off road riding world, yet also capable of offering more experienced riders enough performance to excite the senses.

  • Easy-to-access externally adjustable power valve
XTrainer offers many other features including a complete lighting package, plastic skid plate, electric start, strong wheels, and the same brake package found on the larger RR model range. The suspension package is designed to provide a supple ride at slower speeds while still providing the performance needed when the pace ramps up.

Revisions for 2022-

Engine: the engine has been completely revised, with an all-new larger bore cylinder, a new piston and a new power valve Crankshaft: new shorter stroke; Cylinder head: the head is also completely new, and has been redesigned to complement the other new components to perfection. Clutch with diaphragm springs: this solution makes the clutch action lighter, more progressive and more controllable, significantly reducing rider fatigue. Both engagement and disengagement have been improved, while the clutch is now capable of transmitting even more torque. To allow for totally custom set up, three different spring preload settings are available, adjustable with a simple mechanical procedure. New graphics and colors for 2022.

WOLF: BACK IN THE DAY

The 1987 Honda CR250R rates as one of my favorite machines ever. It was a superb motocrosser, yet with very little work made for a superb off-road machine. This is a District 37 Enduro with the big mods being a really wicked Acerbis front fender with an extension, Acerbis hand guards, headlight and a larger tank. Paul Thede from Race Tech modified the suspension, which was at the pinnacle of excellence, tweaking it to work better in desert enduros.
