New KTM 200 - Street Legal?

Want to pick up a new KTM 200 from dealer - the MSO is clear of any "For off Road Use Only" markings.

Anyone aware if the VIN will throw a flag with the Motor Vehicles Admin?

Can't say about MA but definitely not in MD since my MXC has a license plate. I have met about half dozen people with plated 200's in VA and MD.

Do you mean a KTM Duke 200 - or a KTM dirtbike?

Never been a Duke 200 in the US.

In CA the VIN numbers would preclude registering any modern dirtbike for the street,in some other states it doesnt seem to be a problem.

CA is saving us from our evil selves.

Dirt bike - thanks for comments.

I would probably register it in Maryland.

My son bought his 200 in MA and the dealer provided paperwork to get the bike registered. Of course you will have to pay tax and insurance. It was a small dealer in the Berkshires somewhere. I don't believe he ever registered it, though.

If you get it plated here in Maryland the only hurdle for actually getting a license plate is the initial inspection. With that inspection and insurance MVA will be cake. But you have to be 100% legal at every inspection shop I have been to. That means hi/low beam, two mirrors, both brake lights, horn, speedometer/odometer and turn signals. I like the Baja Designs kit because it looks and works like oem. That matters since it will likely be a street bike guy doing the inspection and test ride.

Then you need to find a dirt bike oriented shop that will call it a one seat motorcycle so you don't need the otherwise required handhold and buddy pegs. JT Motorports in Frederick or Ellicott City Motorsports are two good places to start for the inspection since they sell KTM and have seen plenty of them with license plates. Last on the agenda, print the state inspection requirements and point out to the inspector that it says chain guard if originally equipped when/if he flunks you for that.

Good luck. This is mine in full Maryland DOT regalia right down to amber and red reflectors glued on. Except, it appears the amber one fell off the fork leg at some point.
