KTM pulled out all the stops when they released their 2017 EXC and XC enduro models. But what are they like to ride, especially in muddy, wet, slippery conditions? A couple of guys from New Zealand put them through their paces.


So here they are, the 2017 KTM XC (cross country) and EXC (enduro/cross country) models. They are all new from the ground up and boast advanced new frames, engines and suspension as well as lithium ion batteries, counter balance shafts in the two strokes and traction control on the four strokes. This is what we thought of them.
