My top 5 are heavy on Orange. KTMs have been my favorite bikes for a long time. One on my list is actually on a Pulp MX Blazier's/GP's Classic Blaze list of ugliest team bikes of all time. So go figure. So as I count mine down, I am fully prepared to be blasted for a couple of these choices. But hey, you like what you like. smile

#5 Jeremy McGrath's 1997 Suzuki of Troy RM250

Photo

Photo

Comment: Love all the colors on this machine and the seat cover is the key! And love those forks!

#4 Stefan Evert's debut of the 2011 KTM 350SX-F

Photo

Photo

Comment: Personally, I think this is the best looking of the modern four stroke KTMs. I'm not a huge fan of a lot of black on bikes but I do prefer the black/orange combo of old to the current blue/orange they use now.

Which leads me to my favorite color KTM combo....

# 3 Jeremy McGrath's 2003 Bud Light McGrath Racing KTM 250SX (version 1)

Photo

Photo

Comment: Controversial pick number 1. Bear in mind, I hate beer and not a fan of the Bud Light logo, whatsoever. But even still, I dig this bike as it incorporates my two favorite colors, silver and orange, on a machine that I love.

# 2 Jeremy McGrath's 2003 Hot Wheels McGrath Racing KTM 250SX

Photo

Photo

Comment: This is just gorgeous. Love the all orange with the black, red and yellow accents. One of the best looking KTM machines, ever. I just scored these official One Industries Hot Wheels McGrath Racing KTM graphics which I am stoked about. A replica build of this beauty is in the works!!

And #1....

Jeremy McGrath's 2003 Bud Light McGrath Racing KTM 250SX (version 2)

Photo

Photo

Comment: Why would I put this bike...a bike that made Classic Blaze's top 5 ugliest team bikes...on top of my list? Well, I just love the silver front fender, back orange fender, seat cover and cool KTM logo. I'm drawn to this bike, even though, again, I don't care for beer. So go figure. I can't figure it out myself but I love these MC KTM bikes. They are rare and yeah, I love KTM and love MC, so maybe that is big part of it. It's different and unique to his career. 2 races and a few publicity photos but several different versions of these MC KTM bikes.

For the record, the Hot Wheels toy of the silver/orange Bud Light MC KTM was minus the Bud Light logo, obviously, and that logo was replaced with The King's crown logo. Now THAT would be my perfect bike, if it existed.

Photo

Ok, guys...and girls. Tell me your list, with pics, and what you think of mine. I'm prepared. smile

Cheers.

The Honda CR250 1-800-collect of JMC is a beauty.

I had both. 125 Lawson replica and the 250 JMC replica for winter training.

Only 5?! That's not fair. ;-)

#5 Factory Honda David Bailey
I love the clean look of the 1985/1986 Hondas. Blue seat, golden rims.
Photo

#4 Factory Honda Jeremy McGrath 1996
One of the best looking decals.
Photo

#3 Factory KTM Joel Smets 2001
Another clean look in this list. Love it!
Photo

#2 Factory Husaberg Joel Smets 1999
Many failures in 1999 because of the digital ignition but I like the "less is more" look of the Pre-2009 Husabergs without a traditional airbox.
Photo

#1 Factory Yamaha Andrea Bartolini & Peter Johansson 1997
In 1997 with the Ti-Subframe (1998 Carbon) was prototype. Eye candy in case of look and tech!

I always liked the look of the PJ1 xtreme Yamaha team back in the day, Jimmy Button was one of my favorite riders at the time too so maybe that influenced my opinion. Perhaps by today's standards the bike isnt that great looking, but i remember those bikes really standing out at the 96 Denver supercross with that neon yellow or chartreuse color. But for whatever reason, this is still one of my favorite looking bikes,Photo

this honda of troy is another favorite of mine....the troy dragon graphics look good on all bikes, but the suzuki and honda are the best looking imo.
Photo

Always been a big fan of the TLD bikes, this is my favorite of their kits
Photo

Another badass looking tld bike

This mad racing dirt candy suzuki is one of the best looking bikes i have seen recently, black wheels with the black frame is a win

Was the Honda ridden by Dave Strijbos? Clean looking bike but was there anything special about it?

I had to dig into the old external hard drive for some of these. My picks are also a little different as there are some freestyle bikes I really thought popped. This list is not ordered by favorite.

1.) 2008 JS7 KX450F- The red and green just go so well together.
Photo

2.) 2010 TP199 Xgames Yellow Frame RM250- The yellow frame/ wheels and black forks looks amazing.
Photo

3.) 2006 TP199 Xgames All White RM250- Amazing!
Photo

4.) 2011 RD5 RM-Z 450
Photo

5.) 2015 Red Bull Husqvarna FC450-

No it was the Micka Pichon bike when he was a rookie in GP125. Nothing special, just a personal affection for this bike and Mickael Pichon.

It is super hard to choose a top 5 but that's why I did it. To really try to figure out what my favorite bikes have been. There's always more I love, though.

Another Everts KTM...with a freakin' sweet orange seat. That dude's bikes always look sweet.

Damn, that looks good!

The black framed San Manuel Yamaha with light blue graphics was way before it's time. Amazing look, props to the human that designed that.

I forgot to add this. This is one of the best we've seen in the last 10 years. Absolutely stunning. At least as a current bike, there is not nostalgically view on this and it is amazing.
