I looked for it on google and all I came up with was the 200EXC has about 41 horsepower. Good luck on your search.

32 to 34 would be a fair guess.

I would guess that 34 HP would be on the high side as most 250 cc 4 stroke MX racers barely put out 34 HP.

I used to have all this kind of info written down somewhere, but can't find it now. :ride: I'm pretty sure it was closer to 32 HP though. :thumbsup:

Are you sure? I thought it was 47/48 BHP


Just for the record HP figures are pretty much worthless except in bar chats, it is torque that you want :thumbsup:

I wouldn't be surprised if the 450 only put out 40/42 hp. I've been riding a stock 200EXC for a while now and yesterday I had a chance to switch with a guy riding a 450SX. I was very surprised with the lame power delivery compared to my 200 smoker. In addition, the 450 felt like a tank... big and extremely top heavy. I was glad to get back on my 200.

I also have a DRZ400S for dual sporting. It is uncorked with a full FMF exhaust. I'd be surprised if my DRZ is putting out 40 HP. In fact, I jumped on the DRZ as soon as I got home to compare. It felt just as powerful as the 450 KTM. I hope the KTM was just clapped out. :ride:


I was planning to buy a Husky TE250 next year but now I have to ride one first. I might be really disappointed by that. The smoker may have spoiled me.

It was in a comparison on line against some other bikes I found it doing a search, trust me I wish it was higher but from what I understand if you put a 525sx cam you can add another 3hp for about $300.00 with labor @ probably any ktm dealer. it's the cheapest 3hp gain you can get.

I have spent a little time on the 250TE, some on the KTM old engine and a little on the KTM new engine.
KTM Old engine I guessed 32 to 34 in a prior post, I just looked at JD's web site & he ran 250TE on it and it was around 32, I know the TE is stronger then KTM old engine so I am going to change my guess to 28-30 for KTM old
The KTM new engine is quite a bit stronger so I will take a wild guess at 34-35?
The TE is certainly in between, an very easy to ride, fast enough for anything your doing in "woods" type pace, very good bike yet mellow & easy to ride! If I did not have a 450TE that 250TE would be my choice.

If you like the power delivery and handling of your 200exc, then I don't think you'll find the TE to be a good replacement. The 200exc is light and snappy. The TE isn't heavy, but it has a much more planted and stable feel, and the power is smooth and strong. Very different riding experience with each bike. I'm not nearly as comfortable on the 200exc as I am on my TE. I get tired much more quickly on my 200exc. It is a super fun bike, but it also likes to go fast and can't be ridden lazy.

Did you do the Langston set-up on the powervalve? That makes a huge difference on the 200EXC. Also, when you refer to the TE, do you mean 250 or 450? Thanks for the feedback!
