Its somethin but it aint all that!! Oh well looks like the 03 KXs are the coolest 03s unless KTM pulls one out of the hat.

Are there two different oils in the motor like the Honda?

not mentioned anywhere so I don't think so.

-Bike looks great
-10 lb loss is good
-auto-decomp is great
-more motor never hurts(longer stroke, more torque).

-15 lb loss would be better (no biggie)
-4 speed (yes, four will work for mx, five is better in my opinion for all around use and makes gearing choices more flexible...more WR sales now I bet, especially with the button)
-no seperate oils
-not wet-sump (not mentioned, and listing of 'aluminum oil lines' means oil is going somewhere)

All in all they should be great, and anyone planning a purchase should be happy. Not anything I'd run out and sell a bike I like for though, 426 or CRF. The WR's though look like major improvements...very nice. I might have to get a 250f though now that they have auto-decomp on it too, sweet, I love those bikes (and I'm a new bike junkie, got to buy something this year!).

NOTE: To all you red haters and blue haters, give it a rest, it gets old. No bike will smoke another, and as someone who has a new bike every year(often different colors) I can tell you if Billy-Bob Local smoked you at the track before he will still smoke you. Liking your bike and being proud of it is great, slamming everything else makes you look like a insecure dork.
