HARD-HITTING ACCURACY

Thanks to a nimble chassis and its even more compact high-tech engine, this large-displacement power machine is surprisingly light and rideable. As a result, this 510 cc SOHC single-cylinder powerhouse has an incredible power-to-weight ratio and provides nothing less than the most dynamic, and exciting dual-sport experience available.

ENGINE & EXHAUST

KTM continues its evolution of the sport of enduro with a new range of world-beating 4-stroke engines. The race-winning performance of KTM's pros has filtered through to these powerful new motors, proving they're capable of taking you to the front straight out of the crate. The reworked engines are the most competitve, compact and light engines on the market, setting the benchmark in Enduro-specific performance, rideabilty and reliability. This means they are capable of winning in each engine class, from amateur level to the fastest professionals.

CHASSIS

KTM engineers take weight loss seriously. As a result, they have crafted the 2022 KTM EXC-F models to be the slimmest, lightest and quickest-turning enduro bikes available. And with an E-starter as standard, getting the big single turned over is as simple as pressing a button.

ERGONOMICS & COMFORT

Designed for complete harmony between rider and bike, KTM has exploited the knowledge from decades of race success to create perfect ergonomics on the KTM 500 EXC-F. Maximum rider comfort and movement in all conditions is guaranteed.

BODYWORK & GRAPHICS

Drawing inspiration from the RED BULL KTM FACTORY RACING TEAM, the KTM 2022 EXC Range features a bold contrast of orange and blue tones, as well as a factory inspired blue seat. These are applied use mold-in graphics, which feature greater friction and fade resistance, meaning your steed will look factory fresh after even the toughest time spent on the trails.

Power & Torque

Combining compact dimension with an immense power output, the KTM 500 EXC-F's fuel-injected SOHC engine is the most powerful and refined 500 cc on the market, thanks to newly developed camshafts, exhaust system and updated electronic fuel injection. Its class-leading power delivery is available throughout the entire rev range and with its small dimensions and low weight, this engine is compact, light and the most competitive powerplant out there. With Euro IV homologation, it's not only considerately green, but leaves the competition green with envy too.

Cooling

Always Optimal

Maintaining the optimal engine temperature and consistent horsepower throughout the ride. The KTM 500 EXC-F features newly designed radiators which are mounted 12 mm lower than the predecessors, lowering the center of gravity, matching the design of the new shrouds perfectly and providing perfect ergonomics. By using CFD technology (Computational Fluid Dynamics) and a smarter coolant circuit routing, the innovative system ensures optimum engine temperature for the highest performance, in all conditions. Above all, a reworked delta distributor, integrated into the frame triangle has a 4 mm larger center tube, increasing the cross section by 57%, so coolant flows from the cylinder head to the radiators more efficiently. This is further aided with the help of a radiator fan as standard. The radiators have special protectors that protect from flying rocks and debris while also acting as a brace to disperse energy around the radiators in the event of an impact. 

Exhaust

Finely Tuned

When it comes to improved power delivery and performance, the new exhaust plays a key role and packs a punch that is hard to beat. All 4-stroke EXC models feature new, two-piece header pipes (two parts instead of one on the predecessor) which can now be disassembled much more easily and which allows better access to the shock. The aluminum muffler sleeve has a newly designed, slightly larger profile with a new end cap. Compared to the predecessors they are shorter and more compact, bringing the weight closer to the center of gravity for better mass centralization.

Chassis

Optimal Flex Characteristics

All EXC models feature new high-tech, lightweight chromoly steel frames. This includes hydro-formed elements produced by state-of-the-art robot welding. They retain their race-proven geometries, but by re-designing certain areas they now have a higher lateral, longitudinal and torsional stiffness, resulting in better feedback for the rider, playful handling and improved stability. The laterally attached engine head stays (the connection between cylinder, head and frame) are now made of aluminum, reducing vibration and further contributing to precise cornering. The bikes also feature newly designed lateral frame guards with a structured surface, improving grip, while also serving as a heat protector against the muffler on the right side. The subframe is made of extra-light and stable aluminum profiles, weighing less than 900 gr and is 40 mm longer than before, providing better rear fender stability.

Brakes

Stopping Power

These high-tech Brembo babies are combined with lightweight Wave brake discs. You couldn't brake any harder or with better feel on an offroad motorcycle.

Electrics

Supreme Reliability

All engines are fitted with the proven electric starter, which is a major benefit for any offroad activity. It is powered by a super lightweight 2 ah lithium-ion starter battery, which provides safe, reliable starting. A reworked wiring harness and revised packaging has most of the electrical components concentrated into a common area below the seat, making them more accessible and reliable
