i was reading about one that this guy has for sale. I was just wondering if anyone here had any experience on one and how it might compare to a 139/144.

Its a shame the 4 strokes are doing so well. It just goes to show that in order to actually go as fast as those of us on a 2 stroke, they have to buy into the double displacement handicap just so they can keep up.

I think the KTM 150 is a 144.

If it's a KTM 150, it's a 144.

Tests have shown that the YZ139/144 doesn't really come close to the power of the Katoom.

I hear lots of guys sing its praises about more torque and power but they must be riding 125s exclusively. I rode an '08 KTM 150 and it didn't feel any more powerful or easy to ride than my son's Suzuki 125. It's still a small bore two stroke.

Of course, I'm an old, lazy rider that loves my 450 so take this assessment with a grain of salt.

I rode a 2008 I think it was KTM144, that thing was bad ass, I jumped everything on the loamy ass track I was at on it no problem, and I weighed probably 250 then, if I had the money to have 2 bikes I would buy one in a instant.

The 2010 is a 143.6mm. 143.6cc 56 x 58.4 mm
Should be the same I think for stroke already. So roughly the same? But I do think a newer 150 is considered heads and shoulders better than the old versions??? Not sure, just hearsay.

Don't be a 2 Stroke Racist. Join in the fight for equality. CC vs CC side by side.
We should no longer be concerned with color, size, stroke preferences or make. I'm not a 4 stroker, "not that there is anything wrong with it."
