Recommended Posts

Nice bike. I'm liking the darker new graphics. Why didn't you go with fuel injection vs carb?

The 300 TPI won't be imported into the US this year, only the 250's, and a VERY limited supply.

Very limited supply means that normal people can NOT buy an 18 250 FI. You need more than money, you need connections.

I think I heard husky will have the 300 in TPI.  I havent heard of the quantities they're bringing in?  Maybe just the one-zee like they are with  KTM dealer??  Edit, I looked it up, no 300 for husky either.

 TPI doesnt interest me but  I was curious and asked the guy selling me my 18 and he said they have a LOT on the waiting list.  If one wants a TPI put a deposit now on a 19.  

My thought is KTM is testing the product and the usa market.  If it works well and delivers problem free guys who struggle with jetting will likely pony up an extra 1k for the bike.  Others who like the simplicity and cost effectiveness of a 2s will still have a carb available for them and they save 1k.  Everyone is happy.

What's that orange clamp thing on the exhaust at the barrel?

It's a flange protector, it's supposed to help protect the exhaust flange from breaking if the pipe gets hit.

I thought it was perfect. Not sure I'm real picky.
I'm at like 500 ft elevation if that matters.

I have a tire to mount on the stock rear wheel with a Tubliss system.

Very nice ride!! What tire is this?
