The KTM 500 EXC offers a tasty mix which includes high power, low weight and proper handling. Not to mention about the unsurpassed chassis and the perfect ergonomics which make your ride a hassle free experience.
The motorcycle is constructed using a strong frame made from high quality, lightweight, chrome-molybdenum steel profiles. In conjunction with the rear PDS damping system, it is designed for optimum absorption of shocks introduced by the rear wheel. It is also worthy of being mentioned that it weighs 0.5 kg less than the lightest rival. Naturally, the frame’s center piece is the 1-cylinder 4-stroke, water-cooled engine, which is kept in leash by a wet multi-disc, hydraulically operated clutch. The stopping power is assured by Brembo disc brakes – 260 mm front and 220 mm rear.
The motorcycle rides on high quality KTM wheels with CNC-machined hubs. The wheels are shod in fresh MAXXIS FIM tyres which are ideal for offroad use.
