Havent get mine yet but was riding one week ago back to back with my 350f -17. Stock suspension felt pretty much same as my own bike that has suspension done so its much improved starting point. Bike felt lighter between legs even it should not be that much lighter. Number 1 map felt little soft at sand track comparing again my own bike that have little harder mapping but when I did try map2 it felt just right. EU model have "cone" inside muffler so FMF or other silencer will make bike take RPM more free. (My own bike is without "cone" but stock silencer) Cornering seemed get better also with new frame and it felt great right away and again whole bike felt lighter in turns.
Some guys are running -19 models here.

Thanks for the feedback. Sounds like the engine is not much different? The cylinder head is new so I thought it might have different power character...maybe less friction and more free rev?

I have a 19 300XC and the new ergo's are better for me: the radiator shrouds are lower and slimmer on the upper side with a smoother transition from the middle to front. The seat is also way better shape and foam.

Yep, got mine a few weeks ago. Better forks, super smooth shifting transmission, revs faster, a little more low end, more mid-range, a little better handling... Better seat - comfort and non-slip...
Nice upgrade from my 2016

I’ll be honest, I wasn’t going to get a KTM but I really want to try a 350 and now that every other brand is up over 9k (excluding the Suzuki) it was an easy choice. Dealer was putting it together yesterday, hoping to pick it up this week. I’ll get a ride report after Sunday

Any updates? Anybody else get one?

I bought a leftover 17 this March, and then I got hurt. So I have a brand new 17 sitting in my garage, and now I want a 19...

You are going to love it. Try and get some base settings for it. I wasnt too impressed with my 17 out of the box, also my first ride on AER forks. I actually followed MXAs base settings after the first 15 minute ride, right then and there it was already performing better than my other bike with the suspension done..... and then i crashed, ha.

Did get mine couple weeks back. Suspension felt little off first couple hours but around 5 hours it started to move more free and getting better. Exhaust needs some work or new silencer like FMF. I took it out and remodelled cones inside silencer. In earlier models cone was smaller but new one is so short they put bigger cone inside and I felt it was blocking airflow and didnt give same free rev like my old bike. Sure its quiet at stock but I was looking it rew more free by doing mods to cones.
Other than that been running map2 and just playing clickers with fork height a bit. In deep sand im running forks way down. Only thing im gonna get is higher seat cos I have long legs and seat feels little low to me. Some riding photos in my IG below.

I got a new 19 FX350. Similar feedback as EastFlorida. They keep making the 350 better each year and 19 is a noticeable improvement and as noted nice upgrade from the 2016. These 350's are a great combination of power/weight/handling. My son loves it.....

Well, if it were geared lower that would be one way.

I did try one a month back. I liked it alot more then the 16 engine wich was hard for me to ride, No bottom and all in top. Im used to 450, the 19 was easier to ride only thing that felt weird was the brake pedal it was easy to miss

Good bike but i personally prefer the KX

Yeah i did that to KTM are nice bikes but ive been on kx:s for many years so i was leaning more to kx from the start i have to admit. My friend with the sxf did try my 450 and liked it especially the suspension he said. In the other hand i think hes 350 had good suspension when i tried it but he ordered öhlins for it.

I guess you cant go wrong with eather of them.

Best I can find is $9500 OTD because no sales tax in Oregon. Where can I find it for 8999. I’d be into that!

Feels more cramped than the previous generation, you'd say?

Would it be easy to go back and forth between say, an '18 and a '19? I'm thinking of getting a '19 and keeping my '18 as a practice bike but I've never been good at switching back and forth between bikes unless they're identical.

I'm racing one in Idaho at the end of Sept/Old Timers race. If it's still relevant I'll post a report.

A friend is letting me use it, his info says it's the best bike he's had.....he's had many.

9500 with CA tax is actually a better deal on the bike than 8999 without tax. The cost of the bike at 9500 otd is more like 8700 + 800 tax/lic. Probably really close to their cost.

The dealer in Oregon above made about 300 bucks more at 8999.

It always confuses things when guys talk about OTD prices with varying amounts of sales tax.

I have just bought a new 2018 350 SXF, it's awesome!, come from years of riding a SXF 450 and holy shit if I had only known what the 350 was like I would have made the switch a lot quicker!.

I know it's not a 2019, but would be interested to hear from someone who has been riding the 18' and now had a 19.

For me the bike just was right everywhere straight away, was so much better in the corners it was like night and day, really was.... Thing rips too, I mean rev that bike and it will just haul ass. Have a go on one and don't look back.

Sorry for any form of thread hi-jack!.

As you were.

You should be on a new 350! Followed your 250 build last year but I think you’ll really be impressed with the 350 they are awesome. Plus I want to see another build haha

The $9500 is in Oregon at another dealer. I still have OR drivers license so I can “register” it to an address up there.
I’m going to call sublimity.
