    Well I took 1 for a test ride yesterday. Seriously disappointed. Been reading all these reviews about how fun it is. How quick the bike is and the front end can lift up in 3rd gear. The only thing that was true was the vibration. F me that bike vibrated. 5 mins and my hands were numb. Anyways it was piss weak. Seriously felt like an old 250cc. Never got the front to lift in 1st or 2nd. Don't know how people can say this bike can beat 1000s in the twisty.

    This was at a dealer and it was. 2003 model. Could there be a chance the bike is not running right. Surely a 640 super motard should be quicker than that. Surely the front end should lift in 1st and 2nd gear without any issues.

    I was hoping for a fun bike to commute on and thought the KTM was the bike. Thinking of checking out the DRZ400sm seeing as though these motards are weak no matter what cc. I like the motards cos of the reviews and how small they are. Maybe I should just look into z1000 or z750

    how did you find a Cbr250 forum? were you looking for KTM reviews on google?

    A simple adjustment of 1 tooth down on the front sprocket or 1 tooth up on the rear sprocket will give it more response, I used to own the 2003 KTM 625. The problem I had with it was KTM put a race ready sticker on the rear fender, so I took it out to the dirt and tried to climb a hill and it started to spit an sputter. I had to baby it till I got to smooth ground, where it ran like it wanted to race. I needed to re-jet the carb, KTM made that model with the carb adjust to USA specs so they could be sold in the USA.
