Mountain Bike vs Dirt Bike - KTM 250 XC-W TPI Review

17 Lap 2018

Nostalgia ain’t what it used to be. Not with these new two-strokes around, anyways. Old-timey ring-dingers have been revitalized with fancy new fuel injection and they promise to change the game entirely. Will the 2019 KTM 250 XC-W TPI herald a new and bright future? Or will it be two strokes too few? We find out by racing it uphill against a deceptively fast foe - a downhill mountain bike.

  • Nice review on the KTM! Wish I could afford one :( I ride a WR250R and also ride a MTB. I don't think you were being fair to the MTB for a couple of reasons, though. 1. You used an experienced rider for the KTM, and rode the MTB yourself, which would be fine if you were a decent rider. Don't take this the wrong way, but your MTB skills are sh*t. 2. The MTB was on a technical singletrack, and the KTM looked for the most part to be on fire roads or easy singletrack. I would have like to have seen the KTM going down the same trail the MTB was on. My guess is that if you were riding it, you would have eaten sh*t on the KTM as well. Dirt bikes just can't handle technical trails as well as MTBs, period. I say this after crashing my WR on a downhill that I easily cleaned on my MTB. It's basically like riding a 260 lb. MTB downhill with no dropper post. Both 2-wheelers have their place, but in many situations an MTB is the one to have.

  • Being a Top Gear fan and a Ryan fan I found the parody very entertaining. And I missed The Stig parody until someone else commented on it. I’ve seen this video before. I never tire of Ryan and really enjoy learning from his videos.

  • I applaud you for the effort you put in to mimic Clarkson's body language. Between the sport jacket and that first pause-and-deliver, I instantly knew. "I will never forget the first time I rode a two stroke. The 1995 KX 250 burns gas," *stops walking* "faster than you can mix it."

  • Like your show bit for the unfit and lazy the motorcycle stands probably a bit more fitness and thus less swearing will get you places better on a mountain bike with less tearing up the ground.... the motorcycle will with time trail and limited gas will come to a endpoint where you will have to ditch and walk out and where does one really able to ride a motorcycle trail anyways that goes really cool.places like hiking or a mountain bike the answer is where.... so it can be said your passion for motorcycles is biased at best love your reviews but your now pressing into comparisons which have no merit. End of story

  • Really liked the video. Especially for the references to Top Gear's JC's style. Even down to Kate Moss references and his iconic fleece jacket. Seriously love it! This is a catch-up evening to watch all of Your videos through history. To digest Your style influences is such a gem finder. Keep on the awesome work! P.S. I do not take You as a rip off. Influences are important way to define Yourself and i love to discover them. P.S.S. The stig intro reference :)
