Thanks. I checked and the KTM 200 stayed pretty light until they installed the electric start. The write up said they were light prior to 2009. But I checked and the 2008 and 2009 use the same frame part number. And both of them have spec's that show them around 214 lbs. dry. That's a lot lighter than my 490.

my buddy's new 300 still feels light at almost 230... and you take off a few by getting a LI battery, which you pretty much have to do, cause' the stock battery won't start the bike for shizzit..... it's just where the weight is, i think.... but still, of the older 150's at about 200lbs sounds interesting....

but the 300 pretty much acts like a 4t, alotta low end torque.... i don't think you can say it's the same as a 4t, but it's still got plenty....

I wonder about the KTM published weights. My 01 MXC200 barely breaks 200 pounds with full DOT lighting and a little battery. The thing feels like a mountain bike.

The current 200 shares the 125\150 chassis/engine not the 250/300 chassis/engine. There is a 10 to 15 pound difference which is huge.

in that case it sounds as if i've got a bum steer on the info i put in the vid. ktm's claimed weights only show about a 2kg difference nowadays though?

219 for the 200 and 229 for the 250/300.
