WHICH BIKE IS THE RIGHT SIZE?
DOES SIZE REALLY MATTER? COMPARISON
All the same color but not the same power. We play Goldilocks with three SX-FS.
Life is full of choices, right? Like picking the correct size dirt bike for your style and riding ability. Questions flood in all the time about which size motocross machine is right for our readers. So we decided to put this question to the test. We picked five riders who ranged in weight and ability to ride the 2017 KTM 250 SX-F, 350 SX-F, and 450 SX-F in a controlled environment. We enlisted Litpro and its helmet-mounted Gps-enabled data system to help us track each rider’s lap times and progress (if any was made) throughout the day of testing. None of the test riders were told their lap times during the test, as they had to pick which bike they felt most comfortable and thought they were fastest on. Below are their opinions and ranking (in order), as well as their best lap times on each size.
