Got the chance to get a sweet deal on a carryover 2019 tx 300 so I grabbed it. Sold the 2019 ktm 250 xc with 24 hours on it..busy year ..just one race and a third place at that race. While I've always thought 300s were boring and buzzy and unneeded..I've changed my mind! While some older guys go with smallbores(I loved them when I was a little younger) now I find them tedious to ride fast. This 300 has changed my mind..items added to bike (revalved front and rear suspension - gpr steering dampner-pipe guard-skid plate- complete front and rear beembo brakes with resivour extender- we brake pedal tip and we handguards bars cut to 29 3/4..(thank you ktm for platform sharing as I took this all of the ktm xc before sale) anyways. Haven't rode much this year so Everytime I have rode my fast buddy has been able to get the best of me...however wow..this engine and chassis and ergos are just amazing...I think this is crazy but I was able to ride this 300 fast and use less physical effort then probably any other bike I've ever had. I'm sure if it didn't weigh 219 pounds and have a counterbalanced engine I probably would not feel this way. I did not want efi no kickstart and the extra weight so was stoked to get a great deal on a carry over...just happy and pleased!
