I havent seen one but they seem quite heavy (99.5kg) for what they are. My sons ktm300 is only a couple of kg heavier.

the fuel capacity of 7.5l would be nice - we have to carry gas in our backpacks when riding the trials bikes.

I still think having a seat on this type of bike is a negative - reducing your ability to move around the bike and diminshing that 'mountain bike with a motor' feel. it seems like simply a small trail bike as opposed to the whole new ball game that a proper trials bike is.

would still love to try one out though
