The 2021 KTM 500 EXC-F is a Dual Sport Powerhouse
The KTM 500 EXC-F builds on the framework laid out by its little brother, the 350 EXC-F, which is also part of the new 2021 lineup. Namely, the bike is a dual-sport that is fully and truly dual sport. Powered by a 510cc four-stroke single, it develops approximately 58 HP, and more than enough torque for its relatively lightweight frame and body.
The Austrian company hasn’t skimped out on this model, either. A full set of WP XPLOR suspension front and rear give the 500 EXC-F enormous trail riding and off-road credibility. That same suspension is also supple and comfortable on the street, smoothing out bumps and allowing one to ride to the trail before riding the trail.
It’s a go-anywhere-do-anything dual-sport that will be at home either on or off the road. Add in the fact that it is compact and light, but not ridiculously so, and you can also park it in the garage next to your car or other KTM bikes!
The 2021 KTM 500 EXC-F starts at $11,599 USD / $13,299 CAD.
