The YZ does rev very quick, had an '05 and it was a great bike. I did just get a new three-hundy, and it has a lot more bottom imo. The thing about the new KTMs (250 0r 300) is you have dual maps, three dif PV springs, and then you can fine tune the PV with a tool beyond that. The power delivery is infinately adjustable for however you want it to be delivered. Amazing bikes. Personally, I have mine set to where I can come to almost a dead stop in third and still power away with the available torque as I ride in some gnarly conditions. The 250 and 300 have about the same peak hp, the 300 is built for midrange and has a ton of it.
YZ is a fine machine, but anyone saying a new KTM 250 or 300 doesn't have any hit hasn't spent time setting one up to their liking.
I hear ya man , I didn't think it was possible either. I had an 09 300 , hi comp head , sx cdi box , bike had tons of torque but my '12 YZ 250 had more hit right off the bottom. I ended up putting a motion pro
long throttle tube on the YZ250 (400 cam) to help make it more manageable.
