Motorcycle builder, KTM , has made a serious name for itself in the industry with some of the most versatile and awe-inspiring enduro bikes in the market. Taking their expertise and know-how from their success at the MX World Championship Series, KTM has crafted a fleet of bikes that are as versatile as the sun is hot.

One of the more popular bikes is the new 350 EXC-F, which combines the ultra-easy handling of a 250 with the powerful performance of a 450. Taking the two and building a bike out of it, KTM has come up with a bike that offers maximum chances of victory for professionals and maximum fun factor for amateurs.

The extremely wide rev range and powerful performance of the DOHC high-tech four-stroke and the efficient rideability of the new 350 EXC-F set the tone for previously unattainable enduro characteristics. The new 350 EXC-F’s state-of-the-art 349cc four-stroke engine excels with an extremely wide usable rev range and the performance of an engine with much greater displacement. A laterally positioned balancer shaft, which acts as the drive for both timing chain and water pump, eliminates the vibration typical of this model type, ensuring a smooth ride.

The 350 EXC-F also has a Keihin engine management system with an electronic fuel injection for spontaneous responsiveness and maximum performance from the engine. Another critical element of the 350 EXC-F is the crankshaft, which KTM engineers focused on to reduce the reciprocating weight and fine adjustment of the rotating masses. With this, KTM managed to combine minimum vibration with an outstanding free-revving nature and optimum traction, resulting in a bike that just makes your adrenaline pump every time you get a chance to ride it.

Being part of the Top Speed team, I can only have the highest appreciation for those kinds of bikes that, with lightness, sharp handling and refinement, manage to stand out and offer the same kind of excitement as those fitted with bigger engines do. The 2009 KTM 250 XC-F is one such great example from the very big number of small class, four-stroke Japanese and European competing models.

What’s more, the 2009 model year gets a new chassis and totally new bodywork so engineers enhance the bike’s already strong point in an attempt to establish new performance standards for the class. Let’s see if they succeed.

One designed to master the E2 class and the other one the MX3 class, these KTMs have recently gotten under our radar and we were able to detect high-performance combined with lightness and extreme agility. The new KTM 450 XC-F and the 2009 KTM 505 XC-F go one step further in their evolution towards veritable mountain goats and that’s well worth getting a closer look at, especially now that competing on natural courses is greater fun and more challenging then ever before.
