Ktm 150 xc-w who has one ?

Who has one and what do you think of it compared to a 250 , at 5f 8in and 70 kg , im thinking this is the bike to bring back the IT 175 days which in their day were a pretty competitive bike , Don't ride open stuff , Fast singles to barrington red clay hills and MX track days with the kids .

five eights a good size for an IT175 150's a bigger bike.
X trainer would be a bit closer, totally different power but.

Plenty of good things to be said by the small circle of 150 XC-W owners over on KTM talk. Mostly US owners and riders however so actual results may vary...

Having said that I'm 62kegs, on a 2013 125 enduro model and a 2010 150 MX model and will thoroughly recommend a small bore to anybody under 75KG and not riding extreme enduro, even without riding the latest development of the engine. Frothing to get my hands on a new one!
