KTM 500 EXC-F (2017 onwards)

The KTM 500 EXC-F is considered to be the holy grail for hardcore off-road riders. If you are looking for a 500cc dirt bike with headlights, there is nothing better on the market.

The motorcycle is almost identical to the 450 EXC-F, but it comes with a bigger engine and slightly more power. It offers a ton of low end grunt and there is more torque than most people will ever need on the trails.

Thanks to its powerful engine and lightweight construction, the bike is super-agile and very easy to ride. It is a great machine for all beginner riders and off-road enthusiasts.

A2 Licence Compliance

The KTM 500 EXC-F is a 510cc A2-friendly bike. It has a power output of 43 kW (58 bhp), which exceeds the 35 kW (47 bhp) limit needed for an A2 licence. The bike has to be restricted by at least 18.6% to become A2 licence compliant.

You will need a restrictor to ride the KTM 500 EXC-F on an A2 motorbike licence. See the restrictor kits section to check out what restrictors are available for the KTM 500 EXC-F.
