As far as riding it goes it pretty much does everything right.
You can’t fault the handling of these two bikes.
The 250 feels slightly lighter and the 350 slightly more powerful. Both are truly great bikes.
Basically the 250 remains right at the forefront of MX2 development.
And just like factory rider Kenny Roczen demonstrated during the AMA Supercross season – with the new electric start you can fire the motor back to life at the touch of a button while you are still crashing.
How good is that rather than kicking your brains out when you are absolutely knackered!
And if you really do need a little more power from your 250F, KTM Power Parts now do a cam kit, base gasket and different mapping for the efi. All for just 170 Euros!
KTM is now in the fortunate position – through hard work and continual development – that it has a bike in each and every motocross class with looks, handling and power to match.
The 125 is superb for the aspiring youth, it handles fantastically and is lightning fast.
Going into the middle class (MX2) the 250F is a bike you can take out of the showroom and race to win the following day.
And depending on your skill there’s always the cam kit to splash-out on!
The 150SX also slots into this class but as much a\s I enjoyed this bike would I actually buy it over the 250F? Probably not – but as a two-stroke class runner it is a real contender.
The ‘Big Class’ as it used to be known is a no-brainer.
The 350F is leaps and bounds ahead of any bike on the market simply because it is so rideable.
I am absolutely amazed as to how good this bike is.
It is light, it handles and is just so quick in real world conditions.
The 450F is a great bike but, hand on heart, there aren’t many people out there who can ride it to its full potential.
