KTM's 250 SX-F/XC-F and Husqvarna's FC/FX 250 models are also electric start only with no kick backup...

I'm looking out for a new 250 machine for next season. I like my CRF250R in most cases. Power is obviously not were it should be, without mods.

What I like about the new Honda is electric start and spring forks. The YZ250F has good power and KYB spring forks, but no electric start. The KTM has some serious power, good parts, electric start - but AER 48 air forks. Ok they are maybe really good, but I would prefer spring forks. The electric start on a 250 bike is not a must have, but it's seems to be the future.

About the weight:

KTM's website says for the 2018 SXF250 = 98,2 kg / 216,49 lbs but without fuel. With a full gas tank (7 liters / 1 liter = ca. 750 g) we are around 103,45 kg / 228,07 lbs - with electric start and WP air forks
Yamaha's website says for the 2018 YZ250F = 105 kg / 231,49 lbs (ready to ride with fuel) - no electric start, but heavier KYB spring forks
In the video above the Honda has a wet weight of 108 kg / 238 lbs (ready to ride with fuel) - it has the electric start and good SHOWA spring forks

Can't wait for the 250 shoot out.

Jade Dungey (who you saw) is Ryan's older brother. I believe their pops has a similar tattoo...he's worked at KTM for around eight years now, I believe if I recall correctly.

I think you can just pick a single digit number if you want to. Those single digit numbers are not so popular in the GPs. Cairoli 222, Herlings 84, Gajser 243, Febvre 461. Same with European riders who race in the US: Roczen 94, Musquin 25.

Honestly this is why i like Lindsay , genuine guy who likes the deep technical aspect. Meanwhile over at MXA you hear Ecklund reading a script and constantly comparing everything to the KTM.

Same here I miss Vurb so much. The ONLY site with tons of own killer edits! They had videos, reports, stories about the Nationals, Amateur Nationals, GPs and much more! All those great edits about the road to Loretta's and the whole week at the Loretta ... more ยป

My absolute favorite track of all the Nationals! I really hope it will return for the next years to come.

Thanks for all the great shots. Please, adopt the new format to the MXGP Pit Bits as well.
