Yeah but the Japanese 450 engine/trans is clearly a lot heavier than KTM 450 and a Japanese 250. It stands to reason if KTM can make a 450 much lighter than a Japan 450 they can do the same with a 250. Maybe the weight savings is not as big but still ... more »

When a 250 engine weighs almost the same as a 450 I would say it is relatively heavy compared to the 450. I said nothing about how it ran or the bike handled. Clearly the ktm 250 engine weighs about the same as the Japanese engines. Imagine if ktm takes ... more »

Axon and Vector are just different colorways. I have tried on the carbon and cc in large and the cc feels just the slightest bit bigger.

If start button is intermittent see if it is full of dirt. At least mine was.

The white/copper one just came out but I agree with you on the colors. I want to try one of these due to weight, comfort, and safety but the colors...I kind of like the rockstar colors but could do without the rockstar on it.

4 lbs difference in cycle news but they have the gasgas 2 lbs lighter than the ktm and the kx 3 lbs heavier than the ktm. Crazy how 3 different magazines all get different weights.

I think you have to be really close to it. AJ Catanzaro talks about it in his Indy 1 video I think.

Dirt rider shows 3lbs difference.

The KTM 250 and 350 engines are pigs relatively speaking and if you look a KTM 250 SXF is 3 lbs lighter than the YZ250F. Add spring forks to the KTM and it is the same weight as the YZ.

Webb doesn’t seem to start riding fast until he is in traffic. Check his pass coming out from under the bridge last night. Osborne has exceptional bike control in traffic too. It is fun to watch both of them work through traffic.

The question I have is the green coupler actually a 4th map? What I mean is if running no coupler is the base map maybe the green can be modified and then if you unplug the coupler you get the all 0s map. I say this because the green has a jumper. Why ... more »

I miss the little things about the ktm like a shifter that actually fits my foot.

I am dishonest? What do the results say? You are the one making things up because of what you think you see.

That 3 way battle early in the race was pretty cool. If Roczen would have had the holeshot he would have buried those guys though. Ac was just fast enough to stay ahead. He really seemed to fade after he got passed though.

And yet Barcia has better results to this point in the season on the blue pig last year than the red Austrian bike this season. The green bikes had nothing for that one Honda last night so the kx sucks too now right?

Those helmets look cool. Any idea how they are in hot weather compared to the fly formula or Alpinestars?

I thought blacking out due to impact was a concussion. The lack of post concussion effects while definitely a good thing does not mean there was no concussion. There are too many doctors out there that have no business being doctors.

The material change is where the extra 60g and $200 cost savings comes from. Alpinestars did the same thing with the m10 and m8 helmets.
