KTM 350 EXC-F FACTORY RACE BIKE
KTM also utilised the EICMA show in Milan, Italy, today to unveil a new KTM 350 EXC-F race bike that will be campaigned in next year's Maxxis FIM World Enduro Championship by its factory race team.
Surprisingly, KTM's new mid-size fuel-injected four-stroke enduro weapon is NOT based entirely on the recently released and all-new 350 SX-F motocrosser, which features a linkage rear suspension system.
Instead the 350 EXC-F has a PDS rear end, as KTM believes the PDS system works better for enduro conditions.
KTM has hinted that following the new 350's R&D in next year's WEC, it will utlimately become a production model in KTM's extensive off-road line-up.
