2018 KTM 350 EXC-F


If Goldilocks had to choose between dual sport bikes she'd most likely go with the 350 EXC-F. Falling in between the 250cc and 650cc offerings from the Japanese manufacturers, this 349cc Austrian machine hits the sweet spot in the power to weight ratio category and delivers loads of fun. Weighing in at about 250 pounds wet, featuring a lightweight chrome moly steel frame, and sporting the same engine as the 250 EXC-F, but with a slightly bigger bore and longer stroke, the 350's power punches above expectations. For 2018 KTM improved handling characteristics with new outer tubes on the upside down WP suspension for more sensitivity and to lighten the overall weight. The forks have been revised with stiffer settings as well. The rear WP Xplor PDS suspension was also treated to stiffer settings. Trail or tarmac the 2.3 gallon tank will provide miles of riding enjoyment and the six speed transmission will help drop the RPMs to make highway jaunts manageable.

New radiator guards have been installed on the 2018 350 ECX-F to provide better airflow in muddy conditions.

pho_bike_detFootpegs


"No Dirt" footpeg design keeps the pegs pivot from becoming clogged, ensuring the footpeg is always in the correct position.

pho_bikeClutch


A hydraulically operated DDS clutch makes clicking through gears and power management in slippery terrain a breeze.

pho_engineEngine


The 349cc engine delivers excellent power throughout the entire 12,800 rpm rev range
