Hey Guys,

I am not sure if a thread has already been posted here regarding the difference between the KTM SX 250 VS XC 250, but I am hoping some of you might be able to help. I am currently deciding between the two bike with trail riding being my priority. I understand the XC is far better suited, however I am on a budget and the SX is better priced. My first question is; how good is the SX 250 on trails with simple modification? The second is; I understand the engines are very similar but the XC has lower compression. Does anyone know the true differences between the engines(aside from the gearing), such as playfulness, maintenance, HP & torque? I love the idea of a purpose built trail bike, but I really enjoy MX bikes for their engines and weight on the trails and am not wanting to compromise, when I can modify the SX to be similar to the XC without losing the MX engine. Thanks!

-Chase
