So I'm pretty interested in this bike and wanted to hear from anyone that owns it. Not a ton of info/opinions out there on it, so I figured no harm in asking for some input. So, long-time Yamaha / Suzuki guy. I mostly run vet B/C motocross, which is open class. Currently on a current-gen YZ250F, which I love. Time for a new bike after this year and the 18 YZ450F, 18 RMZ450 and 17-18 FC350 are my front runners. I've wanted a KTM 350 since they came out but haven't ever felt confident enough to pull the trigger. I like everything the 250F has to offer (great handling, fun motor, light feeling etc). I would like a little bit more motor but not sure I'll enjoy giving up the trade-off of the added heft of the 450. Plus, the last time I had a 450 I got tired easier (sometimes). Now that I'm racing mostly an open class, I think the 350 would be good for some of the hilly tracks around here. I don't mind revving but I just would like a little more power on tap than my 250. So I can get a good deal on a FC 350 through a local dealership that I have a long relationship with. So as far as the FC, how do you like it? What was your previous bike and what type of riding? I'm going to be sticking with the 17 or 18, so it will have the AER fork. I've ridden a KTM with the 4CS (with work done) and it actually wasn't as bad as people claim. But it was also set-up nicely. But I heard the new fork is better. The fact that the 350 weighs about the same as my current 250 but with 14 more hp is very tempting. And like I said, I have no problem revving. The KTM 250f I recently rode had all of it's power up top, and I didn't mind it. I assume the valves stay in spec a little longer than a 250F but still closer to the 250f than the 450? I don't expect it to completely feel like a 250 as far as weight / handling but is it much easier to throw around than a 450? Any other info is welcome. Thanks for the input.
