TEST: 2020 HONDA TRX250X

Keep on rollin’ By the staff of Dirt Wheels This may not be the infamous and cultist TRX250R two-stroke ripper, but the humble Honda TRX250X has outlasted and sold in greater numbers than the old two-smoker.

We have only experienced X3 versions with factory-installed turbos, and the lion’s share of those are intercooled turbos. In […]
