Question KTM 200 exc premix oil

So I just picked up my first KTM last weekend and I have a question regarding premix.

At my local store I can buy 1L 2stroke oil for 8,7$ .
KTM recommends Motorex Cross Power 2t which in my country sells for 28$ .

Cheap local oil specs => (JASO FC, API TC, ISO EGD.)
Motorex CP 2t oil specs => (JASO FD, API TC, ISO-L-EGD)


My question, doesnt the cheap local oil seem fine to use for premix?
Only difference is JASO FD > JASO FC & ISO-L-EGD > ISO EGD
... and of course the 19$ difference per litre(!)

Not pushing my bike on the track or anything, mainly used for mixed city driving/stunting and enduro.
- Thanks in advance.

Jaso specs are online. Don't know how much difference there is between FC and FD, but FB to FC is a major step up from memory.

Can't help with your question,but interested in the stunt riding you do.
I have done stunt riding, my area of expertise is over the bars,massive high sides, but my favourite is getting ripped off the bike by a vine.
Absolute adrenaline rush I can tell you

Page 3
The FC grade is defined for low smoke 2-cycle oils superior to FB with regard to exhaust smoke and exhuast system blocking. FD grade is defined as improved version of FC in terms of detergency performance at high temperatures.

FC and FD undertake the same testing methods, however the duration of Jaso M341 test (detergency) for FD is 180mins vs 60mins for FC. Minimum standards for lubricity, initial torque, exhaust smoke, and exhaust system blocking are the same.

Thanks for all of you're inputs.
I've decided to go for the Motorex one, just to be on the safe side
