tons of fun

easy to fix

parts are relatively cheap

quieter than a 4 stroke

lighter than 4 strokes

 

cons

 

most like to be on the pipe (higher rpm)

you have to mix gas

need rebuilds more often than 4 strokes

only a few manufacturers make new ones

 

also it depends on what you want to do with them.

 

track or trails?

also what size are you looking at?

 

125's are not the best in the woods as they dont like to lug and need you to be on the pipe a bit more.

 

150's are supposed to be great, then the 200, 250 and the 300.

 

ktm sells xc bikes (cross country) which are set up for trail use.

 

depending on your weight you may need to get new springs for front and rear as factory's sell the bikes for a generic what they think the average rider weighs.

 

ktm owners might know the stock values for the bike size you choose.

 

if its your first bike don't get too large a displacement as its harder to learn on a high power bike then on a mild one.

 

you may out grow it (power wise) fairly quickly(one or two years), but too much power and your afraid of the bike.
