Edog on the KTM 300 EXC

EDog200, an Australian YouTube acquaintance of ours, has himself a new toy. A skilled rider and a fanatic motorcycle videographer, here’s his impression of the 2012 KTM 300 EXC.

2009 KTM 690 Enduro R Used Review – Besotted

The KTM 690 Enduro R should need no introduction; it has been around for a while hasn’t it? But, this particular Enduro R does merit a few words, because this is MY KTM 690 Enduro R, which is something entirely different. That’s because I test bikes, over 150 of them at last count, but when it came time to sign on the dotted line I chose the KTM 690 Enduro R. And it’s ruined me.

2009 KTM RC8 1190 – Poetry as Blood Sport

I’d boxed this guy up and shoved him away into a corner of my mind. I thought I’d moved on to more sensible things like adventure and touring, replacing this raving self with a better person, a responsible rider who takes the high road and chooses his moments. Then KTM comes along and hands this speed-ist hooligan a 155hp and 88.5 lb-ft of torque sledgehammer labeled RC8.

2008 KTM 950 Super Enduro R – The Cure for Common Sense

Periodically in a review I dance around the topic of whether a bike “spoke” to me or not. This is not one of those reviews. Let’s cut a swath of broken daisies through the meadow and directly to the point; the KTM 950 Super Enduro R is pure delightful lunacy.

Forbidden Fruit – KTM Super Duke 990

It seems that when it comes to motorcycles, the Euros always get the special stuff. Lots of exotica that we never see. Makes sense I guess since they seem to be more interested in styles and models of motorcycles other than soundalike cruisers. You know, sound effects masquerading as a motorcycle! (oops…did I say that?…

2004 KTM 950 Adventure – Exploration in a Class of One

Late 2003, the KTM 950 Adventure arrived here in North America with much fanfare.  Almost a year later, the big KTM is still very much that intriguing new kid in town as ever. KTM is predominantly a builder of off-road motorcycles, that’s given the company a higher profile among the hardcore dirt types than most,…

2004 KTM 950 Adventure – Counterpoint

Every junior quantum physicist knows the creature: Schrodinger’s cat – a feline in a sealed box with a vial of poison.  The cat may be alive or it may be dead, killed by a quantum event that may have released the poison from the vial.  The poor thing exists only as a waveform – as…
