Why would a big company hold off on annoucing this on their site. Are they trying to shave more weight? I know KTM offroad models will porbably have an edge, I just want to know how much edge before I make a deposit to get one. Their bike comes out in March 2012?

276 was the weight posted when they first announced it.
That's about right: FI adds 5-6 lbs of weight.

Yep, looks slimmer. The scale doesn't lie though. Hopefully it rides lighter than it is.
My KTM 400 XCW in most situations rides a lot lighter than the true pig it is, ha.

Thanks for the input. I haven't ruled out a KTM 300 2 stroke yet.

Does it really matter if it weighs 273 or 263? Its a fat ass


At a certain point once a chick is too fat for a bikini her next 20 pounds dont really matter.Just concentrate on her other good qualities

I like fat chicks.

Its obvious by looking at my signature line.
