If you're looking for a great small-bore two-stroke off-road bike, the 150 XC doesn't have much competition. It makes an excellent alternative to a 250cc four-stroke, especially for younger riders coming off 85cc two-strokes. Older guys who used to love riding 125s won't believe how this "cheater" 150 elevates the class! The $6998 price tag may be a bit of a stumbling block, but bikes are all expensive nowadays, and you are getting a lot of performance for the money. We're willing to bet these bikes will be in short supply once KTM sets up a demo-ride program.
