Numbers are wrong...
I hate to fuel this fire but I'm trying to understand where everyone is getting this 20lbs difference between the FX and the KTM?
In stock form the 2016 KTM 450 XC-F (closest direct competitor to the FX?) weighs 108.5KG or 239.2lbs. Carries 2.5 gallons of gas or 15.5 lbs for a total curb weight of 254.7 pounds.
The YZ450FX curb weight is 262.
Yes the KTM carries an extra .5 gallons of gas but I'm comparing curb weight to curb weight for a difference of only 7.3 lbs.
Am I missing something here?
Facts is no one seems to be consistent with weights. Mostly what we read in the mags is what we go on. In the new Dirtbike they claim a 23lb difference between the 2 bike...
