Product Overview

Product Name: KTM 300 EXC (2011)
Brand:

The 2011 KTM 300 EXC carves a name for itself as a dominant force in the enduro world. This thoroughbred enduro machine is a champion for seasoned riders seeking a lightweight weapon for technical terrain. Here’s a detailed breakdown of the 2011 KTM 300 EXC, analyzing its strengths, weaknesses, and suitability for different riders.

Engine and Performance

The jewel of the 300 EXC is its potent 293cc two-stroke engine. This powerplant delivers a linear and controllable powerband, perfect for navigating tight trails and responding quickly to changing conditions. A significant upgrade from previous models is the addition of a counterbalancer shaft. This reduces vibration dramatically, resulting in a smoother and less tiring ride.

While the 300 EXC won’t win top speed contests, its exceptional low-end torque propels the bike over obstacles and up steep inclines with ease. This makes it ideal for technical riding where precise throttle control is essential.

Handling and Suspension

KTM equips the 300 EXC with a lightweight chromoly steel frame that provides exceptional handling and agility. The WP suspension, a staple of KTM’s enduro range, devours bumps and jumps with aplomb, keeping the bike planted and composed. This combination allows riders to push their limits with confidence, inspiring a sense of control even on the most demanding terrain.

However, the lightweight design also translates to a stiffer ride compared to some four-stroke enduros. While this translates to better handling, it can be fatiguing on long rides, especially for those accustomed to plush suspension.

Brakes and Features

Brembo hydraulic brakes provide excellent stopping power in all conditions – a must-have for enduro riding. The 300 EXC keeps things refreshingly simple, avoiding complex electronics like ABS and traction control. This keeps the weight down and allows riders to focus on pure riding skill.

The instrument cluster offers only essential information like speed, odometer, and trip data. This minimalist approach might not appeal to riders who prefer a more feature-rich experience.

Comfort and Usability

The 3011 KTM 300 EXC prioritizes function over creature comforts. The seat is firm and the tall seat height (37.4 inches) can be challenging for shorter riders. However, these aspects contribute to the bike’s overall lightweight feel, making it easier to maneuver and control.

The 300 EXC is happiest on the dirt, but can handle some light on-road stretches. The six-speed transmission offers decent gear ratios for highway cruising, but the small fuel tank limits range to approximately 100 miles.

Overall

The 2011 KTM 300 EXC is a purebred enduro weapon built for aggressive riding and technical terrain. Its lightweight chassis, linear powerband, and exceptional suspension make it a joy to ride for skilled riders. However, its firm ride, tall seat height, and limited range make it less suitable for casual riders or long-distance adventures.
