HUGE difference in weight there! I simply can not imagine a 525 actually feeling lighter?

I have ridden and owned a number of KTM 2 strokes, and have ridden a number of 450, 525 and other KTM 4 strokes (though none of the most recent model years). In all cases, the 2 strokes feel dramatically lighter to ride to me. And the scales seems to agree.

I am mildly worried about the bikes weight, those 2009 250-300xc-w's feel extremely light compared to my bike. I will weigh my bike the and tank when i am back home during my vacation.
