Hey gang, I have a friend that wants to ride, he is real new to riding, and we are kinda just jumping in. This is the deal, I told him a ktm 200 would be great starter and keeper bike, but do to the fact there is not a lot of them for sale now I was going to suggest a kdx. He is 185lbs, novice. I never liked the suspension on them, would it be ok to suggest the kdx if your reservation is about the kdx suspension and the michigan whoops and how they dont work together as well as would other bikes. I am not sure what else to suggest at this point because i think it will take a season to get him to appreciate the ktm, but I need to get him out riding sooner, a kdx would be much easier to find. If anyone has a ktm 200 for 2500 or less let me know. He wants to find a bike very soon.
