  1. I own a KDX200 and have had 2strokes all my life but all my mates ride 450 4 strokes and swear by them!! I have had a go on theirs but find them a bit boring! I dont know to go a KTM525 or a KTM300 2 stroke? I have had a look at a new 525 and they are very nice, light and flickable but i can not spend that much, would anyone know if the older modle 525 are as good 2003, 2004???

  2. I had a KDX200 for my first bike now i have a TTR250. I much prefer the 4 stroke. It's so much more controlable. But if you like the 2 strokes stick with them. I don't really know much about KTM's, but from what i have read and from talking to others they haven't changed much over the years so you'll probably find they're pretty much the same.
  3. Cant fault my 03 525. Specially as a motard.
    Havent ridden a newer model so sorry, cant really compare.
    As for 4 vs 2; the pros and cons are a huge list for both.
    Your better get on 525 and test it out.
