Hi thanks for advise. They donít make the KTM200 any more they are not very common. There was one for sale for 7500$ I think they are worth 4500$ so itís an availability issue, they are VERY tall

Not the earlier models that shared the 125 frame, up to 2007(I think?).
I noticed one locally here for $3600 recently, not that that helps you any.

I occasionally ride with a 16 yr old girl that has about an '05 model.
She goes anywhere here father does on his 300 SEF-R(sometimes further) and that thing is a mountain goat.

Honestly, those earlier 200's are probably one of the most capable (& fun) bikes for the vertically challenged, but they are getting hard to find in good nick.

What's your budget?
I can't remember if you needed rego either?
If money's no object consider the KTM150XC-W or the new ADR compliant 2020 KTM150EXC.

...and what's wrong with having 3 or 4 bikes?

Yes I was drooling over the 2020 ktm 150EXC but theyíd be 14000$ thereabouts.
I bought a KTM FREERIDE 250 R yesterday.
$4000 with rego.
It is the 2 stroke and claimed weight 93kg. It does 70-80klm with one tank, while the Beta did 40 klm in one tank the seller said.
So Iíll put up here the veredict once Iíve ridden it a few times
