4 strokes are nice. It has plenty of power. In the 6 gears you have good range, from going up a steep hill at slow speeds, or zooming on flat ground. Not very heavy. Keeps up with anything on the trial. Lots of low end power.
I'm 6 feet tall, and I just reach the ground. Maybe not the best leaner's bike, although this was my first bike. Mine doesn't have any enduro features like headlights or tail lights, and I'm a big fan of those.
Overall this Honda XR200R is a very good bike. The 200cc keeps it light, but give it lots of power. 6 gears give you the range to go fast or slow. The BEEFY suspension lets you ride with a passanger. I miss the headlight/taillight, but it is less parts to break, I have never had any problems with this motorcycle and for the price (around $1200) it's a steal.
