BEST DUAL-SPORT/ EN­DURO

KTM 500 EXC-F

Cycle World - - North Rim Adventure -

Other man­u­fac­tur­ers have built very good sin­gle-track-ready dual-sport bikes, but KTM just keeps on crush­ing it with the EXC-F line, par­tic­u­larly the 500. What brought the EXC-F back to the top? Was it the im­proved throt­tle re­sponse and power? Or the more than 10-pound drop in dry weight? The im­proved sus­pen­sion? The high­qual­ity com­po­nents? Yes, it was all of this. Ev­ery pound dropped in­forms this bike’s ev­ery move. Why, it even makes it eas­ier to pick up. The KTM 500 EXC-F isn’t just the best dual-sport bike ever made; it’s one of the finest en­duro bikes in the world.
