Benefitting from years of motocross and off-road motorcycle development, the KTM dual-sport bikes handle exceptionally well. There is a 3-pound weight difference between them, with the 350 EXC-F weighing 255 pounds and the 500 EXC-F coming in at 258 pounds. When riding the two bikes back to back, the 350 EXC-F feels just a bit lighter than the 500 EXC-F and is slightly easier to maneuver and put where you want it, especially in slower-going areas. As the speeds increase, the two bikes feel more similar as far as weight feel. The EXC-Fs react quickly, yet predictably to rider input, making direction changes nearly effortless. As far as straight-line stability, the two Austrian machines are predictable and confidence inspiring. The Brembo brakes are phenomenal with excellent stopping power and predictable modulation. The ergonomics are comfortable and easy to get used to. The EXC-Fs are fairly thin from front to rear, but not quite as slim in the radiator shrouds and number plate area as the 2019 SX-F and XC-F models. The rider triangle is good and the seats are comfortable, making long days in the saddle that much more enjoyable.
