What do they really weigh?

The Lithmus test on matching bike weight to the rider:



Very interesting post on ADVrider: http://advrider.com/forums/showpost....&postcount=103

I realize it is perverse publish weight with a full gas tank, therefore penalizing the manufacturers for providing additional gas capacity to a stock motorcycle. As adventure riders, that's one of the things we are always screaming about. Unfortunately, weight with a full tank is the only number I can find that is comparable. Wet weight with an empty gas tank would be the most fair comparison, but it is hard to find.

Motorcycle Consumer News is a helpful resource to have all those weights listed together, but the MCN numbers are consistently lighter than the weights from other sources, and I suspect they are using the half tank of fuel method for determining wet weight.

One of the frustrating things about this project is the reminder that the magazines don't take dual sports very seriously. For example, the KLX250S is one of the more significant additions to the dual sport world in the last few years, yet Cycle World treated it with a one page glossover and no spec sheet at all. The TE610 has been featured in several articles, including comparisons of sorts (Anywhere, Anytime, May 2006 Cycle World, 310 lbs dry) but never with an all up weight. I'm hoping that will change as the new models hit the floor this spring. But it's not like the good old days when Art Friedman was editor of Motorcyclist and dual sports were part of every third issue.

Since dual sports typically hold between 2 and 2.5 gallons, I'll note those that are carrying 3 gallons or more, and readers can do the math if they want to see where a bike might rank with less gasoline. (6 lbs/gallon)

From heaviest to lightest (street legal dual sports only) here they are:

Cycle World (June 2009) did one of their drive-by dual sport reviews on the KTM 690 R, and forget to tell some intern not to waste time weighing it, so they actually published weight with full tank. I also added the BMW 450x since RideLD was kind enough to catch the weight on that one.

Wow cool to have the comparison. I see that the KLR is still competing well with the featherweights...
A good list to keep open when I (my pocketbook allows me to) feel the need for more wheels.

That data is from like 2007. They don't even have the TE610 on it? Or the F800GS? Sheesh.


And it's lacking the more recent players, like the Tiger 1200XC, Super (tanker) Tenere and the Honda CrossRunner. All of which weigh more than anything on this list.

Very cool Drew, valuable information for sure.
My 07 WR450F is not listed but the manuf says 235 dry which probably means around 255 wet wit a 3.1 gal tank??

30yrs ago Honda could build a 600cc lighter than a modern day dual sport.
Although modern dual sport comes with nice bits and pieces.

I think if you pulled the starter out of the KTM, its weight would compare favorably.

Probably more like 260-265. Don't forget oil, water and brake fluid. When they say dry, they mean DRY.

This thread should be stickied. PM'd a mod to request exactly that. Sure, some of the info is outdated, but perhaps folks can help fill-in the gaps as data becomes available.

I've owned all of these machines (actually WR250X, close enough). Interesting that the 250 and 350 weigh the same despite upside down forks, EFI, e-start, and liquid cooling.

Thanks for making this a sticky! Lots of good info in here. If anyone wants to add to it with some modern info, that would be great! Very eye-opening numbers, here. My only wish would be that the amount of fuel in the tank at the time of weighing were standardized. I hate to see bikes with large gas tanks get punished. In a perfect world the wet weight would be all fluids plus 1 gallon of fuel, or something like that.

Two of the bikes that I've owned and weighed myself:

'05 R1200GS. 507# advertised weight by BMW. Mine had a Remus TI pipe and no other options (no cases, crash bars, etc). 496# wet, ready to ride. Seems plausible that the pipe took 11# off... That stock thing is HEAVY.

'96 KLR650. 420# wet, ready to ride. This included a top case that was probably like 2#.

I'd like to know what my 2012 GS REALLY weighs with spoke wheels (more than alloys), bash plate, pannier mounts, top box, and everything else stock.

It's completely irrelevant, but I'm a numbers geek. I just want the data.
