The experience offered by the KTM 500 XC-W is fairly unique. Fire up its engine and your ears will be filled with one of the sweetest sounds an enduro enthusiast can hear. Then, as you start to feel those grippy tires spinning faster and faster under you, you’ll start to notice how the fresh WP suspensions are working in perfect balance with the mighty roar of the engine.
The rest of the experience is useless to explain in digital ink, but you can expect to mind-blowing performances, great handling and an impressive stability.
At the heart of this “wild cat” lies a modern 1-cylinder, 4-stroke, water-cooled engine with a displacement of 510.4 cm³. This strong engine needs to deal with a total weigh of only 112 kg (without fuel) so you can expect to a fairly fast acceleration.
As far as prices are concerned, the KTM 500 XC-W can be yours for no less than $9,649.
