So for the past 6 years or so I have been riding KTM 125s and more recently KTM 150s. I have always loved these bikes and they have held up great, but I'm thinking it is time for change.
You see, in ideal, loamy and grippy conditions this bike is a blast for me and I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world, but in slick conditions and especially in sand (which is 80% of Belgium's tracks) I am just too tall and heavy for this bike (6'1 / 80kg).
So basically what I'm asking is: If I were to make the switch to a KTM 250 2-stroke, what can I expect? Will I be shocked by the power? Will it be easier to ride, or more difficult? Anything else?
I know the best way to find out is to ride one myself, but no one that I know has a 250 2-stroke! And there is no such thing as 'dealer try-out days' over here.
P.S. Do not suggest a 4-stroke. I would buy an ATC 3-wheeler before I'd buy a 4-stroke.
