Is The 2023 KTM 300SX Really That Good?

Comments (5)
  1. Hey Keefer… IF the AMA did the sensible thing and made the big class a more even cc limit, how close are the 350 and 300?

  2. First time since I retired I got a little bit curious again. (I rode a 500 cr in alu-frame long time ago, then ah 650 4-stroke, that is when heats where 35-45 minutes and big bore classes existed in europe)

  3. Hey Keefer, coming from a YZ 250x, would you reccomend this over one of the 4 strokes for a New Mexico offroad rider? Particularly Rio Rancho where you rode some Husqvarnas a few years back. I ride either desert there or sigle track mountains. I’ve been curious between this 300 and the 350.

    I’m a 40 year old weekend warrior. I love my yz and wouldn’t be getting rid of it. But I’d like some new technology also.

  4. I have a 2018 KTM 350 SX-F and I have a deposit down on a 2023 300 SX for a couple reasons:
    1) I look at my hour meter every time I ride and dread the day I must rebuild my motor. $$$$!
    2) I don’t race anymore. I’m 62 and I ride to exercise. I’m diabetic.
    3) I want the lightest bike I can get with the maximum horsepower.
    4) I want an electric starter.
    5) I want fuel injection for riding in higher altitudes.

  5. I’m 59 and don’t get excited much. 250 four stroke is boring to me. I went and sat on the 300. I’m 5’7”” and about 150lbs. Just sitting on it, It feels right. I was able to balance it a very long time with ease. Like it perfectly balanced. I feel strongly that all of us should demand this superior masterpiece race against 450’s. I’m in for this bike and even got excited about it. Junk chain and no skid plate are two immediate action items for me.. I’ll replace it before I ride it as it will stretch and start killing my sprocket.
