ON RECORD | MXA’S 2005 KTM 250SX BIKE TEST


The 2005 KTM 250SX was a handful to ride. It was fast, but as we all know the WP PDS rear suspension was only good if you knew its secrets

2018 KTM 450SXf

MXA MOTOCROSS RACE TEST: 2018 KTM 450SXF


KTM has made more model changes over the last decade than all of the other “Big Six” manufacturers combined

ON RECORD | MXA’S 2004 250 TWO-STROKE DIRT BIKE SHOOTOUT


Back when all the Japanese manufactures still made their wonderful two-stroke dirt bikes. This is an RM250 vs. YZ250 vs. CR250 vs. KX250 vs. KTM brawl

2018 MOTOCROSS ACTION 450 SHOOTOUT: THE COMPLETE TEST, TEXT & TRUTH


More than you want to know, unless you want to know how the 2018 450s really rate

2018 MXA 350 SHOOTOUT: HUSQVARNA FC350 VERSUS KTM 350SXF


It seems funny to do a 350cc four-stroke shootout when there are only two readily available models on American showrooms

MXA MOTOCROSS RACE TEST: 2018 KAWASAKI KX450F


Kudos to Kawasaki for not chasing the elusive electric unicorn. The KX450F is the only Japanese 450 that didn’t gain weight in 2018.

MXA MOTOCROSS RACE TEST: 2018 SUZUKI RM-Z450


Suzuki had plenty of time to think about what they would do when they finally built a new RM-Z450, but what they did wasn’t worth the wait.

MXA MOTOCROSS RACE TEST: 2018 KAWASAKI KX250F


With four-year production cycles the Kawasaki KX250F was not due for an update until 2020, but Kawasaki’s engineers took the initiative to make some big changes to the 2018 KX250F

MXA MOTOCROSS RACE TEST: 2018 HONDA CRF450


A real CRF450 test—with everything you need to know, stuff that nobody else ever tells you and our secret recipe for Honda CRF success.

MXA MOTOCROSS RACE TEST: 2018 KTM 350SXF


The best professional practice rider or Vet bike made. The perfect bike for riders looking for a 250 with more power or a 450 with less (although not a whole lot less).

MXA MOTOCROSS RACE TEST: 2018 YAMAHA YZ450F


If we were looking for a phrase to accurately describe the 2018 YZ450F powerband, we would use “filled in.” The 2018 engine doesn’t have the 2017’s dead spot at 6000 rpm. The result is one long usable powerband. Every Yamaha YZ450F owner will love the improved power delivery.

MXA MOTOCROSS RACE TEST: 2018 HUSQVARNA FC450


Not Swedish, but Sweetish. Powerful, but soulful. Brutish, but gentle. The Husqvarna FC450 is like no other 450 — even though it is like the KTM 450SXF (although different enough to warrant a close look).

MXA MOTOCROSS RACE TEST: 2018 FUEL-INJECTED HUSQVARNA TE250i TWO-STROKE


It injects gas, oil and fun, but most all is runs cleaner, sips gasoline, never needs jetting, makes real horsepower and is the future of all two-strokes.

WE RIDE L.A. SLEEVE’S YAMAHA YZ300 “RIP & GRIP” BIG-BORE KIT


AMA Pro racing will never give the two-stroke a fair shake in the political milieu of Supercross and the AMA Nationals. And that is where the story might have ended, but this is a do-it-yourself sport

ON RECORD: MAKITA TOOLS’ 2004 SUZUKI RM250


Everything a smoker should be wrapped up in a 2004 Suzuki RM250 (with lots of facts on how to build your own). The engine was great, but was only half the fun of racing the RM250. As important as good power is feel. Nothing turns as sharp.
