im worried with a 125 2t being too small as im 15 and im still growing

a 125 has the same size frame as the other big bikes and it will have enough power to keep u happy for a long time, I say 125 also.

what about low end power i hear that they lack the power for turning around a corner and ripping up a steep hill

this is true they are not known for having great low end but I ride a cr125 which are known for having a weak low end even by 125 standards and I don't really notice it being a major problem not having tons of low end grunt, u just have to be on top of the bike more to get the most out of it. It will make u a much better rider in the long run.

I have never had any experience on a kdx but from what I have researched because when I was in the market for a new bike I really wanted one people said they are not as fast as a 125 but are definitely a great woods bike because they have great low end torque, but they suffer in to he suspension area but that can easily be fixed, so I u are just riding trails the kdx would be a good option, the only problem is finding a nice one.

Kdx stock suspension is ok for medium size jumps when set up properly. With work they can be raced at the pro level. With their cult-like following, resale is never a problem.
