KTM's EXC range is made up of dedicated competition enduro motorcycles. These machines are nominally road legal - many enduros have an on-road section, but they have only the very basic equipment required for road use, including a small headlight, speedo and tail-light. What the EXC is really designed for is difficult off-road conditions.

The single-cylinder two-stroke engine is compact, light and powerful - ideal for off-road use. But the most important part of an off-road machine is the suspension, and the EXC is very well-equipped. WP upside-down forks and rear monoshock are very tough, high-spec parts, and together with dedicated off-road tyres, makes the 300EXC a superb off-road machine.
