KTM Dual-Sport New 500 and 350 EXC-F 2024

The 2024 KTM dual-sport lineup, featuring the 500 EXC-F and 350 EXC-F, undergoes a comprehensive transformation with approximately 95 percent of the components being newly designed. These dual-sport models are closely related to the recently discussed 50-state-legal dirt bikes, namely the 2024 KTM 500 XW-F and XW-F. For a detailed overview of the shared features and updates, we direct you to our coverage on the 2024 KTM 500 XW-F and XW-F First Look. In this segment, we’ll focus on highlighting the distinctions between the dirt bikes and their dual-sport counterparts.

The biggest difference is the street legality of the 2024 KTM 500 EXC-F and 350 EXC-F, compared to the dirt-only XW-F models. That means the addition of mirrors and turn signals, plus different tires and minor motor and exhaust modifications. The weight penalty for street legality is about six pounds.

According to KTM insiders, the EXC-Fs are down about two horsepower compared to the XW-F dirt bikes, which are already tuned to meet California OHV sound and emissions standards.

To keep the US Department of Transportation bureaucrats happy, the 2024 KTM 500 EXC-F and 350 EXC-F are equipped with less-than-knobby ADV-style Continental TKC 80 tires. The use of the Continental tires is due to the lower sound emitted by the TKC 80s, and the street-legal status of the tires. The XW-F dirt bikes get a Dunlop Geomax MX33 and AT80 rear, and we suspect many EXC-F owners will make that swap before starting the engine for the first time.

The 2024 KTM 500 EXC-F has a price tag of $12,949, with the 350 version running $450 less. You have one color choice—orange, with black and vintage purple accents.
