also, the rmz is in store and has never seen a pinch of dirt.

the ktm is for sale by a mecanic who's previous owner stored it for 2 yrs while out west. The mecanic did a carburator job and jetted it properly

Ktm 300 will be my next bike when I can afford to have two and have the space to store/maintain two bikes... Depends on what you want to do really. Are you going to race mx or trail ride?

250f's have come a long way since their introduction. They are very nimble, fast and quite powerful for what they are. On the flip side they can cost quite a bit to fix if not maintained properly and can be somewhat temperamental.

The KTM 300s have always had a good tract record. They are reliable, solid built machines. The electric start is a welcomed addition as well as the non-link PDS system. The power is very smooth and easy to ride. The 09 suspension is quite a bit better then previous models.

If it were me, I would go with the KTM but the price seems kinda high. Any pictures of the bike? What's the condition of it? Any add one?

That's funny. I was just looking at that bike the other day. It's in NB right? Thought it was funny you said it had been stored for 2 years, was an 09 and 4500 (think he had it listed for 5 Obo)
