    Yer maw !
    my main question due to past experience is , does the new models lug from low rev (250 especially) as in the past, my italian 2014 te250 would bog or flame out when you least wanted it (logs, steep hills etc..

    so, the local dealer has a new runout fe250 for 10k, peanuts compared to the new model.

    I also rode my daughters boyfriends 2017 ktm 450 and was amazed at how light it was :)

    so the 450 could be an option (i've owned many wr450's but they're fat compared to these things ).


    so.... are they a capable lugger ( i know they rev well) or am i wasting my time and should go 350 at least or even 450 ? (given the weight difference is 2gk+- )

    it's 4.5k less than the 350/450 and if they're the same engine, i can always do the top end for less than the difference in initial cost.

    Good lord 10k for a run out 250 I've got the ktm excf 450 no prob on lugging and yes very light. My boys have the fe 501 and excf 500 n they're torque monsters n feel just as light. Depending on what your using it for and if you want street legal makes a big difference in choice. Imo more displacement is not a bad thing.

    Haven't rode the 250 but would not be my first choice

    That's bout the price here in California too otd. I did the blue anodized fmf pipe n de smogged it n went one tooth down on the front sprocket runs very nice. Turn up the idle a little big red knob by top of rear shock or you may experience a flameout every once in a while. Also your ktm dealer can do the reset which lets the bike re tune itself after mods big difference in power she runs like a off road 450 now
