So has anyone ridden a T-Ride yet? It should be brilliant in the woods.

We had one T-ride in our group rinding in the woods of Poland. Nice bike, but build quality is def not decent. Everything is jammed, we had the rear mudguard wiggling all the time (drilled some extra holes in it to fix that with tywraps), Electrics were like made-at-home (no decent connectors and stuff), one moment is wouldn't pull anymore. We opened the carb and found the main jet loose. But hell, not easy to open the carb!
Later the guy (well, 15yrs old kid) broke the front brake line when crashing in the back of a KTM. This brake line is not protected like on other enduro's.
Air cleaner is K&N type under the seat, and the seat has no quick-release...

It is a fantastic bike to ride on, but hell to work on...
I also think that a lot depends on the tech who preps the bike (connectors for indicators and lights are installed at the dealers).

Here's another video embedded in an austrian T-Ride test.

Looks like a fun thing, though it's not cheap (€7250,- here!). Comparable to my GasGas Pampera 250, but 4 stroke, no hydraulic clutch and maybe a bit heavier. But the kind of terrain you can tackle with a bike like that, even as a noob, is unbelievable.

A WR250F weighs 260 pounds according to Yamaha.

I like the T-ride concept but if the price and weight are high and the quality is low????

Hmmmmm...

I had to weigh mine ('07 WR250F) to plate it, with a half tank, bark busters, real skidplate, and the Baja Designs kit it came in at 241 lbs on a certified scale. No complaints, less weight means less road taxes.

This months Dirt Rider magazine mentions the T-Ride in a short article that was about KTMs possible entry into this market. They are calling them Hybrid (dirt/trials) bikes. A 300 four stroke KTM Hybrid would be in my garage right now if they were making them.

I'd say that many bikes can be ridden in the three ways you mention, but T-Rides are now available in the U.S., and are likely your best bet.

Maybe this is it. I hope it's street legal.
