I know rossi is 5'11 @ 140 lbs... I would say the average is between 150-160 lbs... In 250 I would say around the same, maybe a little less. In 125 probably around 120 lbs..

:eek: the lighter the better. makes for overall weight, rider and bike. or else they would be racing heavier bikes. also helps in acceleration and braking. :sleep

125cc is the only class where the bike is weighed w/ the rider. All other classes (250, MotoGP) all have minimum weight restrictions that must be met, not including the rider. It's different depending on the number of cylinders, but averages ~150 kg (~330lbs) for MotoGP and 100kg (220lbs) for 250.
