2010 yz250f vs 2011 ktm 250sxf

Recommended Posts

pros and cons of both

The yzf has 16hrs on it, looks new, leo vince exhaust, r&d power bowl, jd jet kit, and radiator guars

the ktm has 50 hours raced HS and enduros by AA rider, stiffer springs and mapped to 2012 spec

I race Moto and I am a slow B rider, what do you guys think?

Thanks 👍

yzf's reliability is very good (personal experience included). the suspension is also very good IMO, also if your looking for a dependable bike the yamaha is it, im not familiar with the ktm (never rode one) so someone else can throw in their 2 cents, sorry i couldnt be more helpful

The 2011 SXF was rated as one of the best 250's made.

The 2010 YZF was rated as just another ho-hum Yamaha.

I get concerned with buying an ex-race bike, 50 hours on a race motor is unrealistic in my view. Unless the owner was willing to do the service for you to make sure it was a good, solid, not-worn out motor, I would pass on the KTM.

The Yamaha is probably the better of the two deals. 👍

I guess I don't feel like 50 trail hours doesn't really compare to 50 mx hours. And how many hours can be on a top end saftly on a 4 stroke? It's been awhile since I've been on one or owned one

50 AA (PRO) enduro hours is probably more stress than 50 c class mx hrs:thumbsup:

well They are both looking to trade me for my 2010 ktm 250sx 2 stroke, the guy with the yzf wants like $1200 plus my bike, so he is kinda crazy and is trying to sell his bike for $300 less than what I can buy a new one for. I havent discussed price with the ktm yet but it would actually be less than $500 to boot

It should be you asking for cash from these used 250Fs. Your two stroke would sell for more and faster than their bikes for sale.

Agreed, the 250sx should be worth more used 👍

Understood. It's what makes you faster. If I were you I wouldn't give away the farm with your bike. Wait til spring if you have to. The YZF will need more mods to be faster than the SXF but it will be a more reliable scoot.

Just move on from those deals and wait for the next good trade.

Agreed:thumbsup:

4k would be a pretty dang good deal on a 2010 250sx in my state

ktm 250sxf are the worst 250f in 2010 and 2011 and 2012. the yamaha is only just infront. but the yamaha last longer, has less hours, better mods. i dont see why you wouldnt buy the yamaha. the only thing is it isnt efi. spend 100 bucks and get it jetted right.
