KTM 300 EXC 2014: BETTER THAN EVER!

The 300 EXC has demonstrated its abilities clearly in recent years in many offroad competitions. The combination of massive two-stroke performance, unrivalled torque and ultra-manoeuvrable chassis makes it the first choice when the going gets really tough. There's no better power-to-weight ratio as standard on the market. The compact two-stroke engine supplies the best performance that money can currently buy in the E3 class. The perfectly tuned exhaust control system ensures controllable power development; the six-speed transmission designed especially for enduro use always has the right gear available. With its further refined cylinder head and new reed valve housing, the 300 EXC is better than ever.
