Overall Rating 4 out of 5

The Austrian off-road experts revolutionised 450cc motocross in 2010 with the 350 and have extended the same treatment to the enduro 350 EXC-F, which combines the handling of a 250 and the performance of a 450.

Ride Quality & Brakes 4 out of 5

An all-new frame, shared across most of KTM’s 2012 enduro bike range, is the result of extensive work to increase torsional rigidity, yet reduce longitudinal rigidity and lends an immediate feeling of control. The only real criticism is the new PDS linkage-less rear suspension which eliminates the chances of damaging or breaking parts in tough terrain by bolting straight onto the swingarm, but results in a soft and slightly vague feeling rear-end. A shock tuned to the rider’s weight might solve this.

Engine 4 out of 5

The new liquid-cooled, 4v, DOHC, 349.7cc, four-stroke single is as compact as a 250cc motor, yet offers similar power to a 450 producing 46bhp.

Build Quality & Reliability 5 out of 5

Typically excellent KTM build quality, with top quality components mean that every aspect of the bike just works.

Insurance, running costs & value 4 out of 5

The real differences between KTM’s Enduro line up depend on capacity, rather than price. If you‘re looking for an enduro bike that uniquely blends nimble agility and 450 pace, this is it.

Equipment 5 out of 5

With fully adjustable WP upside down forks and linkless rear suspension, Excel rims, wavy discs and both electric and kick start, the 350 EXC-F is well equipped.
