I have the 250l which I bought January this year then the AT in July due to the amount of fun I was having on the 250l. My way of thinking was if the 250l is this much fun then 250 X 4 would multiply the smile on my face. The AT has not disappointed in any way trouble is not using the 250l as much.
The 250l I would not say is underpowered if you keep to single tracks and green lanes plenty fast enough. It does run out of puff on fast roads and dual carriage ways but as said it is a 250. The AT plenty fast enough on these roads and absolutely brilliant on single tracks and green lanes I have had a cracking summer.
I part ex-changed my KTM super duke for the AT this was due to the amount of average speed cameras, static speed cameras, mobile speed cameras, police hand held side of the road cameras and un-marked cars and bikes. Did my head in going for a ride then waiting all week for the letter to drop through the letter box.
Now with these two bikes the roads the scenery really enjoying my biking Yorkshire Dales and Lake District on my door step. Enough said.
Just tell her it was three bikes or three women, standing well back helps.I have a 2017 AT and a 2016 CRF250L and have had them both for two years. Each one accomplishes a different task. You need both to have the perfect bike. Will be keeping both. No thoughts of ever selling either one. Use them both regularly. Use the AT about three times as often as the CRF because I spend most of my riding in a touring mode with long stretches of well maintained gravel roads. On another note, I also own a 2013 CB1100 (pearl white) just because it’s stunningly beautiful. Now then all three make the perfect bike. At least that’s what I tell my wife when she asks why I need three bikes.
