Off-Road Motorcycles by Model

Underlining that two-strokes are far from dead is the fact that KTM’s 300 EXC topped the overall off-road charts!

That is unheard of as traditionally the biggest selling off-road bike is something like a PW50, CRF50F or KLX110 or Yamaha’s WR450F. But no, the big ticket 300 EXC topped all comers across every area of the dirtbike market to come out on top overall.
