Im trying to see the pro's and cons of these two models. I will be buying one of these for 2002. Im really really leaning towards the CR 125 because of there great Contingency plan. Im racing the 125-C class and im getting better and better and hopfully will be in the top 5 within 6 months. So that contingency might help out paying for some parts. But I have heard that the KTM has more power than most 125's just feels and rides different than any other bike and I heard that the 2001 Husky cr 125 is just not as fast as other 125's but has quality parts on it.
