That looks like huge fun! Find a way to strap fuel to it and it'd be an awesome single track toodling machine

A local dealer here in CaNAda, told me they'll retail about the same as a 250XCW. 9500ish...

Nope, not coming to the USA. Verified that fact with KTM North America two weeks ago. Sorry folks, Freeride is dead in the water in the USA market.

So why does my local dealer have them listed on their website? Sounds like you got left behind.

Sig,
Are you in the US or Canada? If you are in the US call your dealer tomorrow and ask. Report back I'd be interested to see if anything has changed in the last two weeks. I don't know anything about availability in Canada... I've been in touch with all three of my local dealers and as of two weeks ago none have been able to order the FR250. I can't remember the N/A reps name at headquarters that called me back but he assured me that the powers above him said no Freerides in the USA for 2015 model year.

Called 3 local dealers, Skagit Powersports, Mt. Baker Motorsports and Lynnwood Motoplex, all three said the Freeride 250 is coming to the USA as a 2015 bike.

All three said that KTM NA says it's going to be here.

Two said they can't order it until after Dec, one said they have them on order.

None could say when they would be here.

I would say keep the pressure on KTM NA and your local dealer.

Washington.
The Freeride would sell like hotcakes here in Western Washington.
Not so much on the Eastside of the state.
