The 890 Duke R is equipped with a fully adjustable WP Apex suspension, WP steering damper, Brembo Stylema monobloc front calipers and an electronic package with cornering ABS with Supermotard mode and tilt-sensitive traction control. With 115 hp for the 889cc parallel 2-cylinder 4-stroke, it is the perfect weapon to dismember roads or track. Are you looking less for an “ADV” bike and more for a traditional MX that allows you to ride legally on the road? The 2022 KTM 680 Endure R is literally a traditional off-road motorcycle converted for public roads. To offer something more achievable to the average consumer, KTM has a racing RC 390 for easy racing days. Lightweight, fun and powerful enough; The RC 390 was also developed taking into account track day schedules. More importantly, this full little fairing beast is legal on the street. What`s new for 2023 are a brand new graphic design and a white, purple and orange color palette for a perfectly blended palette. This color palette was specifically chosen by the designers to pay homage to the enduro models of the early 90s and distinguish the 2023 KTM range from everything else on the track. In addition to its successful range of adventure bikes, KTM has also experimented with really fun bare-wheelbase models in the Duke series, combining fun and performance in a wide range of naked sports bikes. The KTM enduro and bisport bikes are the latest 2022 models from the Austrian manufacturer. The four-stroke enduros are the 500 XCF-W and 350 XCF-W, while the two strokes include the 300 XC-W TPI, 250 XC-W TPI and 150 XC-W TPI. The duo of off-road motorcycle models homologated for the road are the 350 EXC-F and 500 EXC-F.
When you add it all up, you have a road-legal off-road motorcycle that`s both lightweight and easy to ride. The “brakes, tires and controls are suitable for competition,” says Dirt Rider. And DBM calls it “one of the most versatile dual-sport machines.” Honda is a major name for off-road vehicles in the U.S. and abroad, especially in the two-wheeler category. The current offering includes everything from the Africa Twin ADV to the modest Trail 125. And if you`re looking for a road-legal off-road motorcycle in the 300cc class, look no further than the 2021 Honda CRF300L. Although Husqvarna does not manufacture ATVs or side-by-side like Honda, it does make both motorcycles and lawn mowers. The Swedish company is now owned by KTM, meaning that some of the bikes of both brands have similar specifications and features. But in the category of 301cc 400cc off-road motorcycles homologated for the road, the FE 350s is ahead of its KTM counterpart.
As most major manufacturers offer their Supermotard models based on their existing 450cc four-stroke off-road bikes, KTM offers a similar offering with its 450 SMR. All models have new slots in the outer tube of the WP Xplor fork, which provide more oil to the bushings, reducing friction and heat build-up. Fork springs now have a polished surface to improve consistency, while a new valve design is designed to increase rebound damping. We offer highly competitive extreme mountain bikes while meeting the requirements of 50 State Street Legal. The wide range of the KTM 4-stroke EXC-F ranges from the agile 250 EXC-F and 350 EXC-F to the extraordinary 500 EXC-F. KTM has dominated enduro racing for decades, with the latest version of the 2023 KTM XC-W and XCF-W models continuing this trend. Bringing READY TO RACE performance to the road, at least until dirt starts again, the dual-sport EXC-F models are ready to own the trails. With an updated aesthetic, an orange-plated Chromoly steel frame, a race-proven WP XPLOR suspension at each end and true READY TO RACE benchmarks, the 2023 KTM dual sport and off-road range is the one to beat.
With the championship champion 450 SX-F, converted to a road bike thanks to racing tires and a larger front brake, this bike embodies the traditional philosophy of Supermoto like no other. The 2023 KTM XC-W and EXC models will arrive at authorized KTM dealerships from May 2022. The 2022 KTM XC-W Series includes three 2-stroke models, all equipped with pure READY TO RACE capability. From the KTM 150 XC-W TPI to the lightweight Marvel KTM 250 XC-W TPI to the complete KTM 300 XC-W TPI, these extreme machines have transported the knowledge, knowledge and progress gained over years of high-level competition. Every motorcycle in the series comes standard with a fully adjustable WP XPLOR suspension with the benefit of a progressive damping system (PDS) at the rear. The PDS layout – a staple in all KTM off-road models – offers less maintenance due to fewer moving parts and offers more ground clearance with less chance of joining when climbing logs or rocks. Also new this year is a Dunlop MX33 tyre fitted to the front of each KTM XC-W and XCF-W machine. This tyre is perfectly paired with the Dunlop AT81 rear. Based on the 690 Enduro R, KTM offers the 690 SMC R, a supermoto version ready to wreak havoc on the roads. With eye-catching super slick road tires wrapped around the existing metal spoked wheels, the 690 SMC R takes road driving to a whole new level thanks to the 692cc single-cylinder engine taken from the Enduro version. In the typical SUMO shape, the front brake disc has also been spiced to make this bike safer on the road.
KTM`s enduro and dual-sport bikes are the Austrian manufacturer`s latest 2022 models. The four-stroke enduros are the 500 XCF-W and 350 XCF-W, while the two strokes include the 300 XC-W TPI, 250 XC-W TPI and 150 XC-W TPI. The duo of off-road motorcycle models homologated for the road are the 350 EXC-F and 500 EXC-F. State-of-the-art engines with the latest electronic fuel injection not only offer the usual high performance values you expect from a true KTM Dual Sport. With a compact architecture optimised down to the smallest detail, the power plants also contribute significantly to the latest weight and centre mass savings and help the state-of-the-art chassis achieve previously unimaginable driving characteristics. EXC-F Input The sophisticated speed-oriented intake blade valve in the intake sleeves increases torque and throttle grip, reducing noise. With three very different models, but united by KTM`s search for quality, the EXC-F range of off-road models is legal on the road. Unlike the other KTM off-road bikes on this list, the 690 Enduro R has a rear linkage.
While the 690 Enduro R and 701 Enduro use their fuel tanks as chassis bearings, the KTM`s tank is larger. And while both bikes have digital displays, only the KTM has a standard USB charging port. Off-road electric motorcycles offer several advantages over their gasoline counterparts. In addition to reduced maintenance, they are also quieter and faster away from the belt. This last advantage results from the “maximum torque at 0 rpm” of the electric motors.
