KTM 200 exc; ?Thumper?

It is not really a thumper, is it ?
I got one and I've tried to find threads in these forums here about it but got nothing.
Anyone here got these buzzards ? I myself love it. Very light, tons of get up & go, 1st class parts, not intimidating at all, very close to a perfect toy for me.
Yeah, I know about KTMtalk. I can't see why I need to buy paid email though.

A thumper is a single cylinder 4 stroke, but this is the place to post questions about your 2 stroke EXC. Many of us in this forum own 2 stroke dirt bikes including myself.

I had a 200EXC, but sold it and bought a CRF250X, because this is the thumper forum.

Anyway I like my 200 very much, I like my thumper even better. That is until it blows up!

Boy, you've ridden that bike so much that the rear rotor is rusted.



















Glad to see you get another 2 smoker. You need to bring that thing over here next summer and I'll treat you to some incredible single track riding.

I have the poor green sister to the 200EXC, a KDX200. Love them 2 strokes

With a pipe/reeds, destricting the intake, and some suspension work, my KDX will hang with the orange bikes in the woods pretty well. Love the lightweight 200 smokers for tight trails... Feels like tossing a mountain bike around.

I love 200cc 2-strokes. My first race win came on a KDX200 in some truely sorry conditions.

Currently I've got an old husqvarna beater bike and a CR250R as my race bike (well, it would be if I could afford to race...)








Here's the beloved KDX. Had to sell it to pay for college but very much enjoyed it for the two years I owned it.



And also pre-college I raced MX/SX on a KX250




and played in the sand..


Also raced a YZ125 in the tiddler class (my favorite)



My wife rides a very nicely built up KX100 ( I love riding that bike, way too much fun)

G'day to you, Dirty Sanchez

Your exc and mine are TWINS !!
I see the turn signals; did you register/insure it for road use ? I seem to see a plate? Mine is road-legal. I got a road-wheel/tire set, as well as dirt-only wheel/tire set.
Check your PrivMes.

To the rest of the guys: Thanks for your replies. It's great to know I got company.

Yeah it's road registered. Is hard to see the number plate in that pic. Would love to get a spare set of 17" road slicks with quick release hubs & get some motard action though!
Long live the 2 smokes

I had a 99 200 EXC until this spring, great bike that can do anything you asked of it.

Thinking of a dualsported barely street legal 450 exc next.
