Anyone know? Depending on when that is , I have to make a choice on one of those or just pick up an 18'. The TC 250 is what I'm asking about.

Changes? I think I heard possible chassis , plastics , motor , ect.... Any truth to this?

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

Haven't the Husqvarnas usually been released a few weeks after the KTMs?

I'm not sure. I can hold off about another 4 - 6 weeks , but I have to get one or the other to give me enough time, for setup and so forth for some of the races I'm doing.

Sorry to hijack your thread, when do the KTM's come out? Seriously thinking about picking up a SX 125.

The 2016 bikes were revealed 4.6.2015. https://www.vitalmx.com/videos/member/Untitled,12029/ML512,13480

So i would imagine that the 2019 will be revealed around the same time this year. But when they hit the dealer floors is a different question. I would imagine that we'll see the first ones at the dealers within 2-4 months.

If it's gonna have the new chassis...just wait. I would.

I ripped a start from Egypt and I was happy about that.

3/29/2018 1:36 PM

The 125 and 150 will get the updates, we've already seen the 125.

But the 250, who knows. Would they only do 2 years with the 17 and 18 250 2-stroke? That is also what i'll wait on. I might get the SX 250 if it gets the updated frame instead of a 450.

|

3/29/2018 2:42 PM

What about the transmission on these bikes? Should we be hoping to see revised ratios on the 250 and strengthening updates on the 125? Perhaps transmission made buy Pankel like the 450 Se?
Or were these issues mostly personal opinions and or internet speculation? ( ratio issues with 250 and failure with the 125 )
What do owners of the 17 / 18 models have to say?
I'd like to get a new 250 two stroke next year and while I'm not entirely sick of the same old same old from Yamaha...I'm pissed at having to pay more for a 13 year old design two stroke than I would the current 450 ( that's the way it usually works out here )
I would be inclined to make the jump to KTM, but I have a mate with a 17 who agrees totally with th MXA review of that bike,that tthe gap between second and third is too close...combined with the hard hitting power ,he finds it annoying and would prefer better spacing so as to take better advantage of that power...

My thought as well. I have a 17 TC250 and am curious if they'll be going with the new chassis after only 2 years, for me owning the bike, I hope not. But we will see. I'm excited either way.

I'm at a crossroads here Manny. I keep thinking " maybe wait for the 19's "......but if they are revised , how long until I can get parts? The reed cage's were screwed up from the 17's and 18's , and we had to wait for a Vforce or Boyesen rad valve to hit the market. Something like this is my biggest fear on waiting for a new model , this close to racing season. I seriously don't know what to do here. I had been thinking about maybe getting the 18' , since the chassis is the same as my 17' 125 , and I can get parts for both bikes.....like right now.

For what its worth I talked to 4 dealers to day and they all told me they wouldn't have a 2019 TC until July ish.

At this point I am just going for a 2018. I can't really see how the 2019 could be that much better unless it came with a Lectron/EFI. May post a thread tomorrow.

Ive been quoted 8064 OTD to 8300 OTD. There are very few on dealer floors it appears.

Damn. Well July is about 2 months to late. I do know that they are $7999.00 here right now , but like clock work they will drop to $7299.00 here real soon. Looks like an 18' for me if that's the bike I'm racing this summer. No choice really.

I’ve put 60 hours on my 17 250sx, I have no problems with the gear ratios, what’s the supposed issues with it?

Just watch me beat 38 other 450’s on a 4th gear uphill start, lol whatever gear ratios I’ve got seam to work fine for me!

Im itching to find out the release date on the 19s. In aus we didnt get any 18.5 factory editons. The wait is killing me.

It was just noddycross action bunging on in their test of the 17 250sx ,that the ratios didn't suit the new motor...too short of a gap between second and third

No I haven't as of yet. It doesn't feel notchy or anything like that either , all pretty smooth. I've got a few more rides to put on it , then tearing it down for a top end and getting some motor work done. Should be an awesome summer with racing / riding both that and the 250.

Maybe something to do with the fact that they couldn't add a tooth to the rear sprocket tongue

Had a lot of fun yesterday riding my 06 125 on a brand new track that my friend has built to run as a commercial venture. The gearbox on that bike is so notchy, can be very hard to shift under a load..I guess it's getting tired. I know the thrust washers in the crank are worn, the cylinder is very badly worn under the exhaust port, yet it still runs surprisingly well. $2300 AUD it cost me...a new one is $9.5 k here.
125's are cheap fun. So much more fun than my 17 450..
Bought a bunch of parts to rebuild my 125, but I've got the first round of the gold cup series at the Oz Nationals coming up in two weeks and I haven't got the $ $ to get the cylinder re plated and the new con rod fitted in my crank...plus I have no idea what transmission parts are gonna need replacing
Just gonna have to run her like she is and pray my crank doesn't blow..

With the new ktm 125 getting used in emx125 I have a feeling we will not see a new 250 smoker for 2019 and we'll be stuck with the previous year design just like what happened in 2016. New 125 was released then we all waited patiently on a new 250 only to get the same bike. But honestly with 19's being only slightly different then 18's I don't think it's as big of a deal as the 2016 debacle. With that being said about the high possibility of no new 250, anybody that wants a new 250 husky or ktm should snag a 2017. I still have a few brand new in crates if anyone wants a good deal whistling

The 250 would have been new in 16 but they wasn't done with r&d and felt it wasn't ready.

Figured out how to embed a video..finally!
Yesterday on my mates brand new track...I'm on the yz 125...was cursing because I couldn't get it to shift up one more gear before the big double until I realised it was actually in sixth blink
I'd love a husky/ KTM 125... But we make do with what we can afford and just have fun with it.
So happy I'm only little..at 52 I'm still a perfect size and weight for a 125..

My guess is the 19 ktm and husky 250 smoker will be the same as the 18 besides cosmetic changes. In 2016 the 250 sx was the same as the 15 besides cosmetic changes, and the new generation 125/150sx and 4 stroke chassis came out.

I would be inclined to make the jump to KTM, but I have a mate with a 17 who agrees totally with th MXA review of that bike,that tthe gap between second and third is too close...combined with the hard hitting power ,he finds it annoying and would prefer better spacing so as to take better advantage of that power...

Unfortunately I found out first hand about the 125 Tranny’s. I broke my 3rd gear, found that they superseded most the gears for the tranny. I would image that should take care of the problem.

Joe , what do you mean by they " Suspended the gears"? And how does this fix a certain issue? Just wondering , since I'll be having my motor done before too long , and I could fix a foreseeable issue.

Also....you running any of the OTMX rounds this year? I'm "planning " on Washougal , Wards creek and possibly Idaho. Running 50 Expert this year.
