I've heard conversation coming out of animal pens that is more intelligent than what is going on in here.

Got any pic of you riding?

And the news reports this as if we should feel sorry for the person who died. Hey dumbasses, don't try to smuggle meth into the country then offer to drink it to show its just "juice". Who honestly feels bad for the kid? They want us to feel bad because he's 16?

Dafug, didn't they get trumped by KTMs 350? Who needs a fast bike when you got dual exhaust doe, am I right?

Not sure what you mean by the 350? Both companies have different philosophies. KTM makes race ready bikes and has been on a hard push to improve their bikes quickly. It was not too long ago when KTM's were looked at as a complete joke in the US at least for MX/SX. Now they are a major player and front runner in the market. Honda does not have to prove anything to anyone (MX is a small market anyways) they already have made some of the best bikes in history. As long as the new CRF250R innovations bring something useful and are not just marketing gimmick it's a cool bike. KTM has the market on light weight, but it seems there has been some durability issues. They have had quite a few cases of parts not being durable enough like the spokes and transmission gears to name a few. If you look at the motors on KTM's you see how compact and thin they are.

My only problem is the weight it's not a huge issue and you obviously do not want to bike too light. However, with the 250f being the entry level adult MX machine it quite heavy since they axed the 125's. If you ride faster tracks the weight is not really an issue tbh.

The titanium gas tank is pretty darn cool on a production bike if you ask me.

KTM made a 350 a couple years ago with more power than Hondas 450
I thought Honda's reign ended in the 90s? In Europe they're well known as a slow bike, many pro riders will back that. The original dual exhausts were a gimmick, everyone swapped them out for a single. I guess something must have changed during their second crack at it because it stuck. Unsure about KTM's durability issues (fuel filter is a bit shit), I think around 2010 onwards they were a pretty solid bike, before then they would often break radiators, gearboxes and the famous steering head snapping in half.

The only thing I liked about Honda was how it handled at low speed, thought it rode terrible at high. Guess that's why they come with a steering damper.

Interesting perspective in Europe. I do know before the 2017 crf450 Honda caught a lot of flak for the under powered mill. Their goal was to make a bike anyone could ride. Looks like they got enough complaints and changed much like the air fork deal. I had a dual muffler crf250r it was a great bike plenty powerful for its time in stock trim. One nice thing about KTM pushing R&D so often is it breeds competition. As of late the Japanese bikes are not seeing much updates. KTM has lit a fire under their butts now.

I never really understood the easy to ride thing for the 450, if your a beginner-intermediate you shouldn't be riding a 450 in the first place
