Husky TE250 vs KTM 350 EXC-F weight

I'm considering trading my 2010 TE250 / TE310 for a 350 EXC-F. I'm short and light and so I'm concerned about every pound. And I don't trust the manufacturer website weights. Anyone have real data on the KTM's weight?
(I've edited this to include the 310 because it is nearly the same weight as the 250 and some more comparison data is available for it.)

The brochures say:
2010 Husqvarna TE250: 233.7 lbs.
2013 KTM 350 EXC-F: 236.3 lbs. (strangely identical to the 350 XCF-W weight in the same brochure... so that seems unlikely)

2012 Husky brochure says:
2012 Husqvarna TE250: 246.4 lbs
2012 Husqvarna TE2=310: 247.0 lbs

From the Cycle World Reviews. These were in the text of the review, not a full data panel. So I'm not clear on weather they really weighed the bikes.
2010 Husqvarna TE250: 250 lbs. (dry)
2013 KTM 350 EXC-F: 251 lbs. (dry)

Motorcycle Consumer News has some good info. Since they list wet weights I'm guessing they actually weight the bikes.
2012 Husqvarna TE310: 267.5 lbs WET (with a 2.25 gal tank: approx 13.5 lbs of gas yields 254 lbs dry)
2012 KTM 350 EXC-W: 262.5 lbs WET (with a 2.51 gal tank: approx 15.1 lbs of gas yields 247.4 lbs dry

While the weights are all over the map, the Cycle World and MCN data both point to these bikes both being close to 250 lbs without gas.
