2020 KTM 500 XCF-W

Chaparral Motorsports
May 20, 2019
Last Updated: September 4, 2020

Stand back or hold on tight, this is the most powerful offroad bike on the market. New for 2020, the KTM 500 XCF-W takes everything riders love about the KTM 500 EXC-F and strips it down to an offroad-only model that packs a thrilling, big-bore punch while still delivering outstanding rideability thanks to industry-leading traction control and selectable maps. A completely reworked chassis and even more compact high-tech engine make this large-displacement powerhouse feel surprisingly light and agile while the reworked WP suspension provides unmatched performance with increased bottoming resistance. As a result, this awesome 510 cc SOHC single cylinder bombshell has an incredible power-to-weight ratio and provides nothing less than the most dynamic offroad experience available.

2020 KTM 500 XCF-W Highlights
