My thoughts are based on the 80s and 90s.

Yamaha- Quality build, bad turning
Honda- Quality , bad suspension
Suzuki- Quality was crap, it just wore out - sharp turning
Kawasaki- Just ok, never enough out there to make an opinion
KTM- average quality, tractor like, unreliable, odd feeling
Husqvarna- no brakes, solid handling, unreliable

|

11/30/2016 10:33 AM

KTM - Dungeys pumpkin
Yamaha - yz125
Kawi- couch with a motor
Tm- pricey shit no one owns
Suzuki- the little ugly trucks the hadjis drive
Husq- knock off KTM
Honda- Cr85RB. Big wheel 85's were the shit

KTM ----> BMW of dirt bikes (they are damn good but why do so many owners have to be self righteous douches?)

Suzuki------> Nissan of dirt bikes. A few pleasant surprises over the years (the old 510, the z-line) but overall a cheap brand without the refinement and sophistication of its Japanese brethren.

Kawasaki------> Volvo of dirt bikes. Yes we make cars (motorcycles) but we are really big into earth moving equipment!!!

Honda---------> The Honda of dirt bikes (obviously). Reliable, dependable, well built, attention to detail....not always the boldest/in-your-face/most powerful. Comes immediately to mind when shopping for your girlfriend (civic - CRF230...etc)

Yamaha--------> The Toyota of dirt bikes. Dependability of the Honda without the sophisticated reputation. Will sometimes throw out some wild stuff too (reverse engine YZ - mid/rear engine MR2). Also can be viewed as a Mazda where the revolutionary 4-stroke YZ400 was outside the box like the rotary engine cars.

TM --------> almost any kit car

Suzuki: Hire Malcolm

Alta: what a debut

Husky- Nightmares, first dirt bike was '86 CR250 enough said

KTM- Consumer driven, sometimes too quick to release something new (recalls)

Honda- Quality and longevity, win or be gone with you, may not be best performing stock but is excellent starting point to hop up/personalize

Suzuki- Turning, one season race bike, RM transmissions breaking

Kawasaki- 2 stroke: Rattlecans, old 250's always rattled, 4 stroke: refined clone of Hondas '08 bike

Yamaha- used to be super slow 2 strokes, now tries to be different

TM- somebody's got $$$$$$$$

I kind of agree, but ambition for me is what KTM is doing right now in building its market share and growing the company. They're not afraid to change things based on customer feedback (added linkeage, AER forks and electric start), and are not tied down with the restraints of product cycles and inflexible production lines. Also very much admire their MotoGP efforts right now.

Had plenty of Suzuki's, and they have all been good in their own way, but no denying they look tired very quickly. So true about the nuts and bolts - they're still made of cheese!
