Powered by a 510.4 cc SOHC engine, the 2018 KTM 500 EXC-F has no equal in the dual sport realm. This compact powerhouse is fitted in a lightweight chassis suspended with a revised WP-developed Xplor fork and shock for the ultimate in handling and control. With enough power and torque to dominate the trail and eat up miles mixed with a READY TO RACE chassis, the 500 EXC-F is free of compromise.
