The KTM 500EXC is new for 2024, but it remains the bike of choice for serious dual-sport riders in the U.S. The frame is new and borrows much from the current 450SX-F motocross bike. The key difference is the PDS rear suspension which does away with the linkage used on the motocross bike. That hasn’t changed, but the fork is new this year. It is the spring version of the WP Xact, which is something that dual-sport fans have been wanting for years. Check out Mark Tilley as he gets to ride the bike for the first time, stock tires and all, in this episode of Dirt Bike Magazine’s dual-sport video collection.
