Any big guys ride 200xc-w

I weigh 250 and am thinking about a new ride.Something for endures or harescrambles in TN. My favorite bike was the  KDX200.  What size the KTM 300 or 200 lets here your opinions.

At 250 I would get a 300. There are a couple big guys that are fast on 200s, but they are very few and far between.

200 will be fine especially if a kdx200 was working fine.


Was 250 without gear 275ish all suited up, my 200 drug my butt all over the Northwest without any problems, guy I bought it from was around the same. Now that I'm a slim, trim 215 lbs the 200 is a raging animal, lots of power and light weight, great for flicking in the woods and I'm not beat up or fatigued like I was on the 300.

I am biased towards the 250/300 personally. However a friend of mine tips the scales at 210 pounds and rides a '15 KTM200. He has no problems whatsoever with it.






I'm 250 Lardy pounds and had a 200exc. Liked it fine but just prefer a 250 more. Had a 300 (old husky WR) and liked it too but the 250 (kx) has a nasty snap that I like. JMO.

Get the 300, the extra size helps us big boys keep up.   :ride:

Bought the 300 today, can't wait to ride it Sunday. Thanks for the help.

Congradulations! You won't be disappointed. Thinking about skipping the next bike purchase and instead getting a 300 kit for my 250XC.

Not to hijack this thread, but I'm going to be doing a little 200/250/300 xc/xcw thread soon. I have a 200xcw, 300xc (that I'm going to downsize to a 250 soon), abd a 300xcw. Going to be riding abd racing all 3 in the upcoming weeks. Everything from desert singletrack, mountain singletrack, motocross and beyond. I'm excited to see the differences!!

Can't wait to hear your opinions on the different bikes!
