KTM is an Austrian motorcycle brand that recently passed BMW as the largest European motorcycle manufacturer.

KTM is primarily known for producing some of the finest off-road and motocross bikes but the Austrian brand has expanded its lineup to include several Adventure and Street bikes.

In the off-road category, the KTM XC lineup is recognized as some of the best bikes available. On the four-stroke side, the 450 XC-F is the flagship and you can also get 350 XC-F and 250 XC-F models. KTM is also still pushing the development of two-strokes and the 300 XC is one of the most popular off-road motorcycles sold. You can also get a 250 XC two-stroke. KTM also offers the unique Freeride 250 R, aa smaller, lighter 250 two-stroke made for extreme riding.

The KTM EXC line is basically a dirt bike with a license plate. There is a 500 EXC-F, 450 EXC-F Six Days, 350 EXC-F and a 250 EXC-F. So there is a size for all taste. And if you want a larger, more powerful street legal dual sport, the 690 Enduro R is a great option.

The KTM Motocross lineup includes the 450 SX-F and 250 SX-F Factory Editions, which are replicas of the factory race team bikes. The standard 450 SX-F and 250 SX-F are also great bikes and there is a 350 SX-F that falls nicely in the middle. And the two-stroke lineup includes the 250 SX, 250 SX, 125 SX, 85 SX, 65 SX, 50 SX Mini and 50 SX.

KTM dove deep into the ADV category with their Adventure model a few years ago and that line now includes three models: The 1090 Adventure R, the 1290 Super Adventure R and the 1290 Super Adventure T (as in Touring). These bikes are amazing.

The KTM 1290 Super Duke GT is a high-performance Sport Touring bike. Complete with hard side bags for travel.

The 1290 Super Duke R is a high-performance Naked bike that is basically an upright Sport Bike without body work. You can also choose the 690 Duke and 390 Duke.

The KTM RC 390 is a single cylinder sport bike. The popular MotoAmerica RC390 Cup racer series is a great place for young racers to learn the skills necessary to move up to larger bikes.
