Light bike is where it's at IMO... especially for technical riding.

I'd say 90-120 mile range should cover most riding scenarios, no?

There should be a larger tank available for your 200. Possibly carry some extra fuel in a backpack?

Once you start riding it you will forget how much you paid for it.

Carpi Diem! Fuck tomorrow or how much you spent.

why wait for the 14? any major differences? I'd consider ktm financing if it was really that much of a better bike, but it seems that the 12-14 bikes are all pretty dang similar... in their awesomeness, that is.

I was looking on cycle trader and there's some big price drops on leftover 2013's.

What's the difference between the EXC and the XCW?

Different sprockets, no emissions restrictions on the xcw. It's cheaper to buy the xcw, all you have to do is buy a rear brake light switch for the xcw. Most people that buy an exc spend $500 getting the bike setup like a xcw.

Call KTMWORLD , speak to Jesse or owner Paul Wright & tell him you are looking for a leftover....they are KTM's biggest dealer in East. They get get all sorts of leftovers to sell. The 15' are due very soon, MX bikes 1st & then the others will follow in August.
KTM 300 will do the same, with a bigger tank if you are wanting a technical type bike...but no Fuel injection in CO. sucks.

EXc needs to be remapped with Euro XCw specs..they run horribly lean, may not be much of an issue in CO.?

my reason for xcw over exc is not having to remove so much crap and having to reset ignition maps to get the bike to run right.

good deals there on cycletrader, unfortunately nothing close by! I can't leave more than a couple hours from home cause im on call 24/7. I wanted to buy from ktmworld but didn't have the time before I headed west!

I'm thinking vic's right - i'll just seize the carp and eat the upcharge, resale will be good on these things for a few years.

Call Jeff Slavins...you are in Co? Jeff is Mr Dirtbike in CO. You 200 should get way better milage, especially at altitude & play riding. Jeff can help you with setting up.
U-Ship that bike across Country, especially if you can find a good deal. Last bike I did was in enclosed Trailer from Kansas to FL for $300

That's 12.5 mpg.

That's worse than my diesel truck.

Johno's right... there's something wrong with the jetting on that thing. It should to better.
