If that was the case, KTM 200's would be running off the shelves, but that's not the case. 300's sell 10 times more. People want power, and as such go straight for the bigger engine like the KTM 500 over the 450 thinking they need that extra 50cc. In reality they would be most likely better off with the 350.

At Intermot last year Kawasaki (Japan) had asked it's reps (in Canada anyway) to gauge interest on the KDX with it's dealers. I haven't heard a single thing since. Would be nice to have those back on the market!

Last year one of the mechanics for Leading Edge Monster Kawi, said that this year or next (I forget) that we would see a new KX125, but not in North America. That is the most legit source that Ive heard for this rumor that runs on hopes and dreams, and were still waiting.

Serious question, how hard is it to manufacture the 125/250 engine and just throw it into the exiting frame/chassis?

I feel like with minimal effort they could produce a 125/250 two stroke. Doesn't have to be "all new" or even that much better than the 07 models...just make it and people will buy it. Then do things little by little like Yamaha is doing.

Not difficult at all, but difficulty isn't the reason why they aren't making them.

Better yet, just come back to the market with their last generation 125/250 with some fresh plastics/black wheels at a reasonable price. It would be a cautious and safe way to re-enter and test the market.
