KTM 250 EXC (2017 onwards)

The KTM 250 EXC is a 2-stroke 250cc dirt bike that is road-legal and can be ridden on an A2 licence in the UK and EU.

It is a great off-road bike, but don’t expect it to perform well on the street.

This bike is not intended for street use, but you will get an extremely good performance off the road, especially on a track!

It truly excels in its category and it is very hard to be beaten by other bikes.

Unfortunately, the KTM 250 EXC needs to be restricted to be compliant with the A2 licence, so it is recommended to go with a different bike instead.

A2 Licence Compliance

The KTM 250 EXC is a 249cc A2-friendly bike. It has a power output of 37.5 kW (50 bhp), which exceeds the 35 kW limit needed for an A2 licence. The bike has to be restricted by cca 10% to be A2 licence compliant.

You will need a restrictor to ride the KTM 250 EXC on an A2 licence. See the KTM 250 EXC specifications table for restriction info, and the restrictor kits section to see what restrictors are available for the KTM 250 EXC.
