The owners manual claims 262lbs dry for the KLX250S. All I know is it feels at least 100 real pounds lighter than my heavly laden KLR650.

I had it up to 65 on the highway briefly today but still tried to keep RPMs reasonable for breakin purposes (might have topped 6K a few times ) This bike is not going to be anyone's idea of fast in 5th and 6th gear but it will do just fine for getting me out to the fun stuff which for me is anywhere from 30 to 50 miles from the house.

I intentionally wanted a bike that I would have no desire to farkle up into a dirt capable street bike like my old KLR650. Rather, I want a barely street capable dirt bike and this fits the bill brilliantly.
