BEST DUAL-SPORT/ENDURO: KTM 500 EXC

Ten Best Bikes of 2014

By winning this award for the third year running, KTM is taunting its competitors to build a dual-sport machine as amazing as its 500 EXC. So far, almost nobody's even tried. This street-legal enduro, essentially a racebike, can be ridden almost anywhere a motor vehicle is legal, from highways to the gnarliest of off-road terrain, sucking it up with ease then blowing roost a mile high with that big, 510cc thumper. It ain't cheap, but as the saying goes, freedom isn't free.
