The KDX hybrid sounds like a real drool worthy machine . A tad expensive, at $12k, but you only live once. They say the same chassis with either a KX250 or 500 motor is the same price -- and i have seen a pic of one of the 500 conversions right here from one of the members ---- would be nice to have a spare 25k lying around for both the 500 and 200.

Plus -- if it is a dream bike that you keep for a decade, it doesn't seem any more expensive than buying new mx bikes every 3 years and taking the hit on depreciation at every re-sale time.
My latest was a garden variety 450 that i have 10k into after the 7k purchase price, suspension, pipe and a few other things-- i may be able to sell it for $3500 for a gross loss of $6500.
But admittedly, it would have to be a darn special bike to keep for 10 years
