    6 Great Motorcycles Under 500 Pounds

    1st John 1:9
    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    What, the TW didn't make it?

    It's got everything the Grom has - it loses something on gas mileage but it has the cachet of being a grown-up machine instead of a pit bike.

    Nice find LT.

    I, too, am surprised that the 200-250 cc dual sports are not on the list....but...

    ...except for the CTX, I'll take one of each....

    hi guys,

    I'm a big fan of these bikes; even today 174 kgs about 384lbs is good for a 600... that is of course until I get on it and all my kit.

    Cheers

    It's another one of their lame-ass articles that is written by somebody who doesn't care that much about the content. If they did, they would have included bikes such as the DR650, which IMO is a vastly better choice than the KLR650... 80 lbs less weight, more reliable motor, etc. And like you guys already pointed out, not including the TW200 when they did list the Grom is stupid and short-sighted.

    RideApart (the original source of the article, not Yahoo Liberal News) isn't much of a site.

    I agree, they could have done a little better job. O well...

    That Yamaha SR400 could be striped into a real nice street legal "Flat Tracker" and lose some more weight in the process!

    The new 2016 Ducati Flat Track Pro Scrambler is interesting. Do a search, my album is full...
    TW200 "Little Brute" is gone - Waiting to see what 2016 brings (WR250R/CRF250 RALLY/KTM390/Africa Twin or E-bicycle?)

    images-5.jpegWith a spare $10,000 I would opt for this Beta 243 pound six-speeder. At 2.1 gallons the fuel tank would run dry before running out of trail. With Beta's " Build-a-Bike" program one might be able to opt for bike delivered with a larger IMS tank.
