Default yz125 or FE125 husky 2T? whats better for trail/technical?

     

So im picking these 2T due to how light they are but someone said the 125 2T are more work and more tiring than say an actual trail bike like a TE250 or TTR230??

My kind of riding is trail riding with climbs drops, tight steering and definitely rock climbing/drops.

I also know the YZ125 will push me around because its 40HP and my klx250 is 20ish? lol big difference. I just want something easy to pick up when I drop it. my klx250 is a B*** to pick up.


So are these idea bikes for riding through rocky sections and trail riding?

the 125's are a blast to ride. I'm a big man and I love them. Not sure how well it would trail ride though. I'm sure you could make it work though.

An MX 125 in really tight or technical stuff might not be the greatest choice, you'll probably abuse the crap out of the clutch trying to keep the bike on the pipe and in the fat part of the power curve. The benefit is they are light weight and easy to throw around, but you'll probably find yourself looking for more grunt in the really technical spots. It all depends on terrain and your experience/ability, but an MX 125 wouldn't be my first choice. A KTM/Husky 200, KDX 200/220 or even an older Yamaha IT200 if you could find one would be better choices (the KDX and IT will be heavier than the newer fancier stuff).
