2018 KTM 250 vs 350 vs 500EXC-F

The buzz surrounding the first-time addition of fuel injection to KTM’s 2018-model two-strokes has certainly diverted attention away from their four-stroke brethren in the past few months. But with four new-gen four-strokes in their range, consumers in the market for a KTM enduro thumper remain spoilt for choice.

And what considerations should you bear in mind when figuring out which capacity is likely to best suit your needs? To help answer those questions, we grabbed three models – all of which have all topped KTM’s enduro-model sales charts at some point in the past decade – and put them back-to-back at the recent 2017 Transmoto 8-Hour at Dargo.
Check out what our three test pilots had to say…
