2005 Honda CRF450X or KTM 520EXC ?

Recommended Posts

Not really an off topic post because the X is basically the 450CRF but a buddy of mine is trying to decide between the two.

I know nothing about the KTM's although I've heard good things about them and just thought maybe somebody here was familiar with both that could maybe comment.

It's a tough comparison because I don't know if anybody has riden the X yet so any comparisons will be purely comjecture/personal experience. IN any event I would appreciate any thoughts to pass along to my buddy.

I'd go with the 2005 KTM525EXC - throw on a Z-Start and scott's stabilizer. Those things have lots of torque and are pretty light too. Comes stock with hydraulic clutch, Excel rims, digital speedo, and Brembo brakes. OOooops, I just drooled! :cry:
