It's based on a YZ250F frame (or 450f). They should also offer conversion kits. At least that would bring the ridiculous price tag down a hair.

To be fair, Herlings is also contracted to race the GPs, but KTM brass seemed open to the idea of him racing here. Even though Febvre is contracted privately, the right twists from Kawasaki and Monster could probably ... more »

He's back on the bike. Just sayin'... KTM is loading their paddock, maybe Kawi should do the same.

Even if Dungey and Cairoli don't race the entire series, it sure seems like KTM is putting in the effort to: 1) Make sure there's an orange bike at or near the front at least for a few races 2) Take away as many points as possible from non-KTM favorites ... more »

Added reply in a thread Can we get a top US racer to MXGP? 4/19/2022 8:46 AM

Agreed. Take the Paul Lindsey/ Dennis Stapleton approach: take advantage of the American appeal in the rest of the world. Fans like seeing the token American racer. Maybe not everywhere, but in most other countries. Likelihood of getting another TOP ... more »

Haha! Yup another NJ peculiarity! Oregon is the only other where you can't pump your own gas. Maybe that's why I find myself there so often...? No 110 anywhere near me...that's for sure. I generally do Av gas if I need high octane for my two-stroke. ... more »

Welcome to NJ! The riding areas are getting more and more limited, but what's out there is still top notch. The only two official, 100% above board tracks in the state are Englishtown and Field of Dreams. Get in good with some locals and you'll learn ... more »

Added reply in a thread E moto racing question 4/12/2022 12:17 PM

Sur Ron Light Bees would be cool on a BMX track. The MTB/E-dirt bike genre would fit well on track like that. But the Alta or Stark or any other forthcoming full size eMoto will be right at home on a full sized MX track. That's what they are/will be ... more »

Added reply in a thread TG 243'S Style 4/8/2022 8:32 AM

He's one of the fastest riders in history. He'd also probably crash less if he was on a different brand. The steep steering angle of the Hondas combined with his forward riding style seem to equal some spectacular spills. The majority of his falls occur ... more »

Agreed, but the the Varg will cost $12,000. Developed from the ground up. The BHR is listed at about $8500. Do your own conversion on an existing ICE platform and you're looking at about $4000, for a tried and true frame, chassis, etc. Electro and Co ... more »

It pretty much is, but I don't see what's wrong with that. Provided everything works as it should, the only major flaw to the design is that the battery placement would make the bike a bit top heavy. But if there was a solid conversion kit that allowed ... more »

This company seems to have been working on this bike for the last couple of years, and they do have some pedigree with legitimate gas bikes that are actually meant to be raced. I believe it is owned by some French riders/enthusiasts who wanted to offer ... more »

Not sure if Boisrame has ever even won a moto before in the 250s, but that doesn't mean he won't be successful on 450s. Roczen struggled to get any moto wins on 250s here in the US, then jumped up to 450s and claimed the outdoor title in his rookie season. ... more »
