Street legal only for now, but I just ran across a 125 comparison in the July 1976 issue of Cycle. With their little 1.5 gallon tanks full....

Yamaha YZ125X, 208 lbs
Honda CR125M, 205 lbs
Suzuki RM125A, 197 lbs

I'm with 2whlrcr on wondering if we're going in the right direction. But I remember in the early days of long travel people were breaking frames and swingarms due to the additional leverage. I think in the end we accepted a 15-20 weight penalty in exchange for doing triples. We were probably all safer when the big jumps had downhill landings.
