theres less choice

there seems to be less choice nowadays, im after a 400-600 cc trail bike not an overwieght adventure bike but a proper trail bike like the old drz 400, there doesnt seem to be anything in this class anymore, theres the new honda crf250l but at only 23bhp its to underpowered i want about double that, does anyone know why the jap companies dont seem to be releasing any?

decent off roaders

Maybe you should look at the likes of KTM, Husqvarna, Husaberg etc

But they are in 1000's of miles!

My Husky SM610 has service intervals of 5000kms between oil changes so its certainly comparable to similar jap bikes. The KTM Duke and 690 is around 3000miles also.

im sure the husqvarna are hours on the enduro/trail version, might be different for the supermoto version.

Only if it's used for racing

If you remove the rev limiter and race the bike then the service intervals drop considerably but otherwise the supermoto and enduro/ trial 610/630cc models are designed for road/ green laning use. The husqvarna TE610 has the same engine as the supermoto version with the same intervals if not raced.

The SM510 and TE510 are the race bikes and they do have short intervals but the husqvarna 610/ 630 and KTM duke models are all good for road use and have 5000km intervals
