FIRST LOOK: 2025 KTM EXC RANGE

2 weeks ago | Words: Matt Bernard | Photos: KTM

Following the groundbreaking 2024 KTM enduro range, which showcased 95% new components, it’s no surprise that the 2025 KTM EXC range has been refined rather than completely redeveloped. However, the 2025 models bring some new features, including a refreshed look, a refined swingarm and PDS shock to compliment the KTM ‘stiff-frame concept‘, and a new chain guide among other improvements. Get the full rundown below from KTM’s Australian PR.

Following 2024s significant 95% overhaul, the 2025 range continues to use revolutionary closed-cartridge suspension, refined frame and bodywork, and industry-defining technology

The most notable change is the ‘orange’ makeover. Here, the previous 1990s-inspired purple highlights are replaced by a timeless silver-gray graphic over predominantly orange bodywork and a black frame. The seat remains orange, featuring a high-grip seat cover and textured grip strips, which can also be found on the frame protectors, tank shrouds, and bar pad.

At the rear, handling is further refined, thanks to new settings for the WP XPLOR PDS shock, resulting in an improved pressure balance and a lower risk of cavitation. The swingarm also gets an update, with a machined unit to improve the durability of the chain glider.

Upfront, a new and updated fuel tank roll now secures the tank more firmly in place while keeping the frame protected against scrubbing. At the handlebars, a new on/off switch gear is carried over from the KTM SX range.

All models in the range keep the hydro-formed, laser-cut, and robot-welded frame, which is renowned for its flex parameters, rider feedback, and straight-line stability, with a 48 mm WP XACT closed cartridge spring fork and WP XPLORE PDS taking care of suspension duties.

The 2025 KTM EXC two-stroke range will consist of the KTM 150EXC, KTM 250 EXC, and KTM 300EXC. The four-stroke range remains unchanged, with the dirt ripping KTM 250EXC-F, KTM 350EXC-F, KTM 450EXC-F, and KTM 500EXC-F filling the ranks.

The 2025 KTM EXC range is the culmination of years of R&D fighting at the sharp end of Enduro competition worldwide. With dynamic race-bred performance, focused ergonomics, and leading technology, the 2025 KTM Enduro range is primed and ready to challenge any terrain and redefine the limit.

As always, a dedicated collection of KTM PowerWear and KTM PowerParts are designed to provide the highest levels of performance and protection, with collections ready to meet the needs of hobby riders and pro racers alike.

The new 2025 KTM EXC range will be rolling off the Austrian production line in June and available at authorised KTM dealers in Australia and New Zealand from September 2024 onwards.
