This weight isn't really dry, or ready to ride - it is without fuel. So oil and coolant are in, gas isn't. With 2.25 gallons, fueled and ready to ride = approx 255 lbs.

Pretty darn light.

The EXC-F 350 and 500 KTM's are totally street legal. They meet emission and have all those lights. They even have the big frikken mirrors and horn. Sheesh...

You should be a little more capable with the web.

Anything missing?

I have no idea where you are getting your numbers from but KTM doesn't specify dry. It's ready-to-ride weight. So oil, coolant and battery are included. No gas though.

Japanese dry weights are literally dry and my experience is that even when you've drained everything and removed the battery you're still left with a bike weighing more than their marketing department claims.

And it feels 50 lbs lighter on the trail! Until you drop it anyway!

There's a thread here: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...=316846&page=7

What do they really weigh. Many of the bikes in the list are older than your target range but interesting reading.

Husky Te450/510 were street legal from the factory, as are the 449/511...I don't have weights though.

Thank you all for playing.

I believe the KTM 350 EXC-F is the lightest street legal dual sport sold in the US, when comparing wet+ fully fueled weight.

I've updated the 1st post.

Looks like the latest issue of Dirt Rider Magazine, named the 2012 KTM500EXC, and 350EXC, there pick for bike
of the year. I ride with a guy who rides a 2012 350EXC, and that bike rips in the desert just fine. He can climb some
large gnarly sand hills no problem on that bike. Lot a good stuff about the 500. Some are saying a little too much power. I owned a 08 530, and that bike was an awsome plated machine, could not imagine the new 500.

The lightest? Thats easy

The Kawasaki KE100 weighs an honest 200lbs . I think what's important is what's the best dual sport for each individual.




I think I'd go for the Husky TE310 or KTM 450. My plated WR250F will do.
