Versatility, thy name is 450 EXC–at least when it comes to off-road riding. Enduro riders are the long-distance runners of the moto-world; they need a bike that is easy to ride, a bike that will do the heavy lifting for them, a bike capable of going almost anywhere in conditions that would have lesser riders back home in bed. This KTM is that bike. Already blessed with traction-seeking four-stroke power, electric starting, supple suspension and almost intuitive handling, for ’06 the orange bike received recalibrated fork/shock settings, a revised steering-head angle and a new carburetor. More than enough to take it to the top of Enduro Bike Mountain, wheelying all the way.
