With continued refinements to the popular EXC machines, the KTM Enduro bikes are ready, the company says, to set the standard for offroad fun and serious competition.

Further dedication from the Austrian brand’s Research and Development department has seen the EXC range receive a variety of improvements and refinements for the latest version of each bike. Last year KTM’s EXC machines took the E1 and E3 Enduro World Championship title wins, the EnduroCross and SuperEnduro titles, a number of X-Games gold medals, the overall ISDE (International Six Days Enduro) win, along with numerous Extreme Enduro wins.

providing higher rigidity, that compliment the CNC machined hubs, as well as the factory look being completed with a striking orange frame, usually only seen on race team machines, and an exciting new graphic design.

The EXC range is already well renowned for its high specification components with high-end WP suspension including the well-proven PDS rear shock, a class-leading, modern and lightweight chromoly frame, high quality electrics and exhaust system and high-tech Brembo brakes.

This year’s launch for the EXC range is taking place this week in Sibiu, Romania, which quite aptly is the location that will soon see the Extreme Enduro experts battle it out for the Red Bull Romaniacs win. In a few weeks’ time this Hard Enduro track will invite the world’s best racers to fight it out across some of the most difficult terrain, and KTM’s factory racer Jonny Walker, who rides the KTM 300 EXC, will be looking to add a Romaniacs victory to the Erzbergrodeo win he took just a few weeks ago.
