KTM 125 questions

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to buy a KTM 125 and I found a nice 99 125sx for $1300. I also found an 04 125sx with a ton of new parts and the guy is asking $1800. I've been trying to decide if its worth it to spend the extra cash and get the 04, so I figured I'd see if I could get some advise from you guys. Were the 99's good bikes, and will there be a big difference between the two?

Here are the links to the two bikes:

IMO 1800 seems a tad high. maybe you could talk him down.

That's a tough one because I do put in a lot of consideration with age. But thats just me. One thing to honestly consider with a bike like this is are you interested in buying the addons for the bike? I dont know what the older 125 has but if you buy it for 1300 and want to put some things on it that the newer one has, thats a dumb mistake IMO. And for me i dont like buying bikes with all kinds of farkles on them already and its nice to get what YOU want to add on for it.. but if its some of the same stuff that wouldn't make much since. See if the older one is all stock. Thats a lot of times good also because it usually notates less use. You decide!

the 04 is a bargain in terms of age difference from the 99. The 99 is too much unless like new and never ridden much. The 99 should have the WP Extreme front forks tho and they are considered to be one of the best ever made, even today.

I own an 05 125, from what i know the 04 would would be a better choice + Resell price is better.
