    06 ktm 450exc vs. 06 honda crf 450x

    For 07 Models: Has anybody actually put their bikes on a scale? The published “dry” weights of the Honda CRF450X and the KTM 450 & 525 EXC & XC are all within 1 pound of each other, hovering around 250 pounds. I know that the Center of Gravity also plays a large part in perceived weight. Since Dry Weight is such a marketing issue with coolant, oil and even batteries (not to mention “truth”) being left out by some manufacturers I would like to know the actual weight. I have not yet seen any reviews that listed the actual weights. I agree with you guys that low weight is a key spec for an enjoyable day of riding, especially here in Michigan where we have these tall wooden things that need to be avoided growing right next to the trails.
