    MXC vs. EXC?

    I have a 2001 Yamaha YZ250F but i have been doing less motocross and more trail riding. I have been looking for a KTM 200 for a little bit of motocross and more trail riding. I found a 2002 200 MXC for $3,600 and im wondering if that would be a good bike for me or if i should try to find an EXC. Most of the trail riding i do is in whooped out trails in michigan.

    I would suggest the MXC if you are doing any Motocross, that price seems a little steep

    The 200 EXC is a woods weapon, and is tough to rival in the tight stuff... but it is not ideal in the whoops, wide open, and MX areas...

    I believe the MXC had the same essential motor, but suspension and tweaking to suit the track better... it might be a great cross between for you... I agree that the price is a bit steep...

    Many people prefer the MXC tranny, including myself. It's less gappy and perfect in tighter terrain. You can make gearing changes to suit your needs.

    It's a similar setup to the new XC, which seems to be the hot bike!

    Have fun

    yes, the mxc tranny is way better. I have an 04 200exc with mxc tranny gears 2nd-5th, exc gears on 1st and 6th, it's got the best of both worlds. the new xc is the way to go.
    OK Brain, I don't like you, and you don't like me. So let's get this race over with, so I can get back to killing you with Beer!
