Photos from our test of KTM’s updated dual sport bike – the 2014 KTM 500 EXC. PHOTOGRAPHY BY KIT PALMER
Even on the pavement, the EXC is remarkably compliant.
All-new plastic gives the 2014 500 EXC a fresh look.
It might be a 500 but the EXC feels very light and agile on the trail. You can throw it around like a lightweight two-stroke.
With the EXC, you can do this as soon as you ride it off the showroom floor.
It might be a dual sport bike, but the EXC can be ridden hard like you would a full-on off-roader.
