    What you think about AJP?

  2. cmc 23 on December 28, 2022 at 1:54 am

    Which one is best on gas over all? From those 5

  3. Kevin Zucht on December 28, 2022 at 1:54 am

    Yes on the 390 Beta….THE ktm killer

  4. momummy on December 28, 2022 at 1:55 am

    If you liked the 300 check out tm dirt bikes

  5. panzr110 on December 28, 2022 at 1:56 am

    Love this channel. Absolutely the best for dirt bikes.

  6. Alistair Balistair on December 28, 2022 at 2:00 am

    id maybe own a four-stroke if they didnt cost more than a comparable two-stroke and if I could rebuild them myself for the same amount a two-stroke costs.

  7. nzkiwibri on December 28, 2022 at 2:01 am

    nice to see some 4T content . Thanks – Love you to check out the 2020 FX – heard its only 14lbs more heavier than the 250x !

  8. Daniel León on December 28, 2022 at 2:02 am

    Hi Kyle, I´m from Mexico and I´m 37 years old. I want to buy my first Dirty Bike 4 stroke, but I don´t know what to buy. Can you update this video with 2020, 2021 and 2022 bikes? Thanks men!

  9. HIPER CLAN on December 28, 2022 at 2:04 am

    true but im thirteen and i want a trail bike but this just cost more than 5 grand its crazy

  10. myrandomlife on December 28, 2022 at 2:05 am

    Which one out of these has the easiest, cheapest maintenance? I have working on my stuff. I’d like to get the Yamaha but I think a 350 would be better for my size. Tons of hills where I live too. I’m 6’1 225 lbs.

  11. mathew grant on December 28, 2022 at 2:06 am

    Ktm 525 end of conversation

  12. Ryker on December 28, 2022 at 2:08 am

    I’m gonna be honest I’m 11 and just like to hear him talk about stuff I have no idea what he’s saying

  13. AZ DESERT RIDER on December 28, 2022 at 2:13 am

    09 ktm 400 xcw is sick , best bike i have ever had more than enough power and 6 gears !

  14. PaulSan on December 28, 2022 at 2:13 am

    Hi.What do you guys think about the KTM 350 SX-F?I live in Germany and I hardly can find a xc-w/xc-f.But SX-F,they are a lot here.Thanks!

  15. Chris Tobey on December 28, 2022 at 2:14 am

    If you prefer the Beta 390 because it’s smooth then it sounds like you need to try a KTM 250 and 350 XCF-W’s instead of the XCF models. The W’s are made for single track riding and the XCF’s are for more open GNCC type riding and not really for single track.

  16. DRW Electrical Services on December 28, 2022 at 2:15 am

    KTM 450 sx!!!!

  17. gabriel goodman on December 28, 2022 at 2:15 am

    If this man pants with those biceps when doing enduro I think I would die😂

  18. Jameson on December 28, 2022 at 2:15 am

    If you had to pick one bike – which one would you suggest the best option for a beginner trail rider ( not motocross ) all single track Rocky, hills, dirt, and mud?? As im looking to purchase newer bike.

  19. David Toth on December 28, 2022 at 2:16 am

    What would be my best choice for my first dirt bike?? Anyone? I am 18 and am just getting into dirt bikes! I don’t have a bike yet but I am looking!!

  20. 78FullSizeBronco on December 28, 2022 at 2:17 am

    What about the old air cooled beasts? No radiators to puncture in a crash, easy, low maintenance and super reliable all around. Not super powerful like a racing bike, but who needs wicked power for trails? I love my TTR230 for single track and off road in general. I rarely get out of 3rd gear so guess big power just doesn’t appeal to me much.

  21. Rob Frasier on December 28, 2022 at 2:18 am

    Just bought a 2022 Beta 390 RRS. Just saw this. I agree, suspension right out of the box is awesome! Plus, it comes with skid plate, good tires, and GPS. Awesome motor too!

  22. Russell English on December 28, 2022 at 2:20 am

    The only time I rode one of these bikes, I hit a wallaby 5 minutes after getting on the 390 and basically whisky throttled myself into orbit. It was a fantastic 5 minutes though!

  23. Martin Horvat on December 28, 2022 at 2:21 am

    honda 450rx?

  24. Jacare1973 on December 28, 2022 at 2:21 am

    The Ktm 500 or Husky 501 would be the only 2 4 strokes I would buy. They have way more grunt & can carry a lot extra weight. The 350 frankly was a let down power wise. I am curious if you have tried any of the Honda’s?

  25. Adam Retschlag on December 28, 2022 at 2:22 am

    No mention of the kx 250x ?

  26. Tim Muis on December 28, 2022 at 2:23 am

    Hey Kyle, magic erasers clean up the white plastics on the race edition bikes like new. Just fyi. Takes off all that crap on the air box cover where your boots rub.

  27. Maeson Frymire on December 28, 2022 at 2:24 am

    Is that a steel frame??? (390)

  28. John Shimkus on December 28, 2022 at 2:25 am

    I’m thinking about the 500 RRS For my first / off bike , being 6′-4" 225 lbs, what do you think? My friend rides a 300 2 stroke. He told me a 500 4 stroke would be great for me because of my height, his cousin rides one. Can’t wait to go look at one.

  29. john don on December 28, 2022 at 2:26 am

    I ride my fc450 husky on all terrain types.. just change the clickers if I’m going in the mountains

  30. MusicBox on December 28, 2022 at 2:26 am

    I will never touch a four stroke again

  31. Grant Elliott on December 28, 2022 at 2:28 am

    3-strokes are favorite.

  32. ꜰʟʏ ᴛʏ on December 28, 2022 at 2:28 am

    A great bike that alot of people sleep on is the kawasaki klx300r.. really nice trail bike

  33. SWFlowseeker on December 28, 2022 at 2:29 am

    Any thoughts on beta 350 race?
    I’m torn 390 or 350
    I have a beta 200rr as my 2 stroke

  34. Black Light on December 28, 2022 at 2:30 am

    2-smoke or 4-choke…just keep strokin!

  35. K M on December 28, 2022 at 2:31 am

    After two KTM dirt bikes I will never own another one. Something always needed fixing and waiting parts from 3 weeks to 3 months was was absolutely ridiculous.

  36. quandrel pringle on December 28, 2022 at 2:31 am

    i have a suzuki dr-z 125

  37. sinan cinar on December 28, 2022 at 2:32 am

    My husaberg fe570 has closed cartridge forks I’m not a fan it’s very harsh on the body in slow rocky sections the open cartridges forks seem much softer an less stress on the arms

  38. Pedro Gomes on December 28, 2022 at 2:33 am

    Do a review of the Honda crf 450 rx redmoto

  39. Sam Hudak on December 28, 2022 at 2:33 am

    Johnny sins lmao

  40. Dangermouse on December 28, 2022 at 2:35 am

    Hey Kyle,
    Good to hear your thoughts on the 4t bikes.
    It’s time to re-visit the Sherco 300 SEF in the Factory version. 👍
    Some important updates in 2019 and especially the KYB closed cartridge fork on the Factory model.
    Also you mentioned you think they’re heavy, still.
    Measured my own 2019 on accurate scales on day one, 104.9kg without fuel, ready to go.
    Not bad

  41. Rhino Games on December 28, 2022 at 2:37 am

    Would love to see an update after two more years of riding

  42. MasterBeta343 on December 28, 2022 at 2:37 am

    Ive heard that all the beta 4 strokes are very jerky except for the 390 which is much smoother and more linear

  43. mark putnam on December 28, 2022 at 2:38 am

    I had the 2013 Beta RS520 (498) and it was the nicest dual sport bike I had ever ridden. Strong linear power band all the way up the rpm range. Nimble enough to ride tight trails yet awesome on a fire road at warp speeds. Predictable steering, suitable suspension and the smooth power made it a extremely versatile. No wonder Beta called it “The Playbike”. From SoCal sea level to the high mountain trails of Kennedy Meadows not a whimper from the naturally aspirated motor. Only the Big Red Pig is a better multipurpose unit in my opinion. However at 66 years old now I need the magic button of the newer bikes. I just picked up a Crf450L we’ll see how it does soon enough.

  44. miloraca on December 28, 2022 at 2:39 am

    Best 4T I’ve ridden, Suzuki RMX450Z, brilliant! But not as good as my KTM 2T 300XC

  45. Max Martin on December 28, 2022 at 2:40 am

    Honda xr series in my opinion is the best line of 4 strokes ever produced. Not performance wise (granted they weren’t bad for the time) but all round honda just got it right.

  46. Lee Gilberr on December 28, 2022 at 2:41 am

    Honda crf 250 and you don’t have to rebuild it every time you ride it and you can save the extra $5000 because you can’t run that fast in the deep woods.

  47. Forrest on December 28, 2022 at 2:41 am

    Love it. The 2020 race editions just got announced this morning. I’ll likely go with 430 or 480

  48. cumnmrmpt aaa on December 28, 2022 at 2:43 am

    I’d love to see you get your hands on a wr250f (F!)

  49. MickTash Staal on December 28, 2022 at 2:45 am

    Don’t that not everybody watching is from America

  50. Jerad on December 28, 2022 at 2:47 am

    Can you review the Kawasaki 300?
