One of the most aggressive off-road motorcycles on the market today, the KTM 450-530 EXC-R manages to provide an incredible riding experience and that is mostly due to the impressive four-stroke power that its redesigned XC4 engine delivers. No matter the cylinder capacity chose the EXC-R proves able to deal with anything that the trails might threaten while leaving the competition well behind.

Coming to meet all that power and position this bike even higher in the customer’s preferences is the redesigned chassis. A bulletproof frame and comfy ergonomics was all that the engineers aimed and achieved.

If you take a look at the Kawasaki EXC-R and miss the headlight you will definitely expect to find this same model on a motocross track rather than underneath you on those nasty trails. Its power to amaze people and especially riders is rather big thanks to the manufacturer’s efforts to keep the bike as lightweight and nimble handling as possible.

It gets your heart pumping fast even when the engine is off, proving that KTM has done it again. Everything you could ask for at a motocross bike, this model has it: mudguards covering a massive fork, high fenders keeping the dirt away from the rider, number pla...sorry, headlight which makes it street legal and takes the excitement even further as you aren’t needed to get it up and down the trailer each time you feel like giving it a go.

Colors on this KTM, just like on most models, are Orange and Black. For 2008 the plastics are also new, making the EXC-R stand out even more.
