plated

I agree....I have a 2013 KTM 200XCW smoker and plated it. Its awesome. Lightweight (213 lbs), e start, juice clutch, folding mirror, tiny tiny signals, 2.5g tank and it rips. I ride it hard core off road and single track as well and never even know it is plated. Best/most fun bike I have ever had so far.....and that's out of 40 years of riding and racing.

I have seen 2 plated KDX's for sale on CL recently, and after riding the DR a few times, I'm feeling the need for 2 stroke smoke! I think I'm gonna have to rearrange the garage and get a dedicated dirt bike. Or a plated dirt bike.

The DR is great for dirt roads and cow trails, but it doesn't have the excitement of a 2 stroke. Or the power band of a 2 stroke. Or any power.

But it will outrun almost any XR200 ever made.
