ok so i bought the bike used and when i got the title from the previous owner it said ORV which stands for Off Road Vehicle and the miles says excempt.
I have seen a dozen of these with plates in pa.
i have contacted the dealership and they said if person buying it wants it to be off road vehicle then thats how they title it?
soooo does that mean i can't put a tag on it???
how do i get the title changed because i know these bike are able to be on the street.
2015 300 xcw six days edition.

Today I am looking to sell my 2004 suzuki bandit 1200s for 2200 OBO. I have owned this for over 3 years and it was my daily the whole time. Yes, every day rain or shine. It never let me down and has been the best to me. I love it to death, but now that I have graduated with a big boy job that involves lots of travel. It is time to move on to something newer and more economical. It has loads of mods and general maintance parts to help it have a great life with me and continue on with it's next owner. Current real mileage is around 30k and the title is clear in MY NAME.
Videos of start up and just it idling
It was well maintained.
Valve adjustments done early (will include special adjustment tool with sale)
Holshot Stage 1 jet kit
Holshot Ignition Advance
Holshot Slip on
New chain and sprockets
New Spark plug
Renthal Handle Bar
Upgraded windscreen (great for long trips)
Suspension Adjusted and dialed in properly
TITLE IN MY NAME
Price is flexible
Mileage is exempt (the speed sensor was broken when I first got it so it didn't record mileage until recently. Everything is now working properly)
Has been down before (damage shown in pictures)
Some other cosmetic issues from being used every day (general chips from rocks and small stuff you can't see in pictures)
Windshield vibrates due to height
Exhaust rattles a bit (will include new muffler mount bushing to fix this)
I'm sure I'm missing plenty of stuff but this should be a great start on what this vehicle has to offer. If you have any other questions or would like more pictures, videos, details on anything please let me know. I'll be happy to work with you.
At this time I am only looking at cash offers for the bike. No payments, sorry. Also I must note that no joyrides either. You bring the cash in full and I will let you test drive. You hold the title, I hold the cash. You drop it no harm done, because you keep the bike and I keep the cash.
At the time of sale you and I will sign the title and we will fill out the proper paperwork for the transfer of the vehicle on the spot. Sorry, but I Have been burned in the past. Thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope you enjoy what you see.
The best way to contact me is by phone. I'm not on this forum much, but feel free to text or call away and I would be glad to respond to any questions you might have. Thanks,

This thread is for the 2013 model 300cc two strokes, not other years and models.
In the past the 300's have varied in a number of ways: different frames, different forks, "old plastic", with and without e-start etc. It seems that KTM is making the two bikes more similar, which might make it a bit harder to choose which one to get.
I've checked out the stats on the KTM Web Site (which is sometimes incorrect), but still probably the best we have to go on: (I got the internal gearing off dealer site)
component XC XC-W
sec drive gearing 14-50 13-50
1st 15:31 14:32
2nd 16:25 16:26
3rd 20:25 20:25
4th 22:23 22:23
5th 25:22 25:22
6th 26:20 26:20
Fork WP Suspension Up Side Down 4860 MXMA CC
Shock WP Suspension 5018 BAVP DCC
rear travel 12.48 13.19
Seat Height 39.6 37.8
Tank Capacity 3.04 2.6
Starting elec.+ kick elec + kick
other number plate enduro light
Price 8,299 8,299.
So, again, assuming this is right the only differences are the gearing, the tanks, and the rear end height. I'll post the pictures below if I can figure out how, but they look almost identical.
As for the wide-ratio tranny on the W, it's interesting. If you swapped the 14t sproket for a 13t on the XC your final gears in 3,4,5 and 6 would be identical. The only difference is the slightly lower 1st and 2nd, with a bigger 2nd to 3rd gap. (The criticism of the W is often 'gappiness'.)
Is the seat height and travel difference the result of the XC having a linkage?
SO, I'll turn it over to the gurus. Hard to see that there is much in it at this point. I'm surprised they continue to offer both, really.
I'm looking into buying a 2012 KTM 300xc new. I live in San Diego so I'll likely buy from a dealership around here. I understand I'll be paying a premium buying from a dealership. But I would like to save a little bit of money.
My question is: What would be a good price to negotiate down to so I'm not getting totally ripped off?
I often see them listed in the $8200 range but I know I can do better than that.
