The official wieght for a 250r is listed as 328lbs dry (no gas, no oil), the banshee wieghs in at 386lbs dry.

If you're planning on racing, the 250r is definitly the way to go. Yes, the banshee has more power, but races are not won in the straights, they are won in the corners and technical sections. Keep your speed through the corners instead of playing catch-up in the straights.

I'm 220lbs, and my 250r doesn't feel small to me at all. If you plan on racing on a limited budget, upgrade your suspension before you upgrade your motor.
