I have looked closely at the KTM 250 EXC-F, Husky version 250 TE almost the same bike, and the Beta Xtrainer 300. It appears that the Beta CAN be plated which is a requirement for me. The trails around here are broken with town roads, especially Pachaug SF you must be plated.
I know what you mean. I would love to have one of the bikes you listed above just for the suspension and light weight.
