KTM get tough with 300 EXC Hardenduro model

1 of 3

KTM have introduced a new £11,499 Hardenduro model to their 300 EXC line-up, designed to conquer the toughest of enduro competitions.

Based around the 2024 EXC, which is powered by a 48.3bhp 300cc two-stroke engine weighing just 24.6kg, the motor is housed in a new frame – with the bike suspended by 48mm WP cartridge forks and a WP monoshock.

What’s more, the new model gets several new protective parts to keep everything properly protected on the toughest of terrains – including closed hand guards, disc brake guards and a composite bash plate to shield the underside of the single-cylinder engine.

Enduro rider Manuel Lettenbichler has already given the 2024 300 EXC Hardenduro his stamp of approval, having taken the 2022 Hard Enduro World Championship title, and opening his 2023 campaign with wins at Red Bull Erbergrodeo and Xross Hard Enduro Rally.

Available in dealers from July 2023 onwards, other features include frame protectors, model-specific graphics, multiple electronic maps, new handlebar padding, and a ribbed diamanté seat.

Black-spoked D.I.D rims with orange-anodized hubs, wear Metzeler MCE 6 Days Extreme tyres, and it wouldn’t be a KTM without an orange frame and plenty of anodising.
