A Friend has a KTM 350 EXC -Fi street legal he wants to sell me. I'm looking for a dual sport tat does ok on 100 mile or less back roads paved and gravel 60/40. How would this bike be? Any known problems? He says its smooth power. Can you cruse at 70 on black top? Any help would be appreciated. Not sure of miles or hours, will post when I find out.

My first trip to Galeana I met 2 guys who were on 350EXC's. We rode for 3 days together and they cruised with me at 70+ for the 200 mile run home without issue. That said, I'm not sure they'd be the bike I pick if I'm doing 60% street and 40% unpaved. They're a little more dirt focused than that.

I will look at it this weekend, but will probably pass. 400 DRZ is what I want. This friend trailers bile to Colorado etch so I don't he rides much in central Texas. Is the power linier on these bikes, not into power bands? I will see if he wants to post it FS.

I love my KLX 400. It is bullet proof and parts don't cost an arm and leg. I am sure the KTM is a great bike, I have a 2001 EXC 250 2 stroke. It is bad to the bone but you will pay for parts, it is a race bike with all of the top of the line components.

I have a Honda and KTM, now days doesn't seem like much of a difference at Rocky Mountain. You and Dirtyryder need to form an anti KTM club, lol!

Tony just looking now till after I pay taxes this year. Probably go ride the KTM next week, but I know its not for me, been watching videos. It is too much dirt bike for me, and close to 36 inch seat.. If I was younger maybe.
