It’s hard to believe 2015 is nearly over and it’s already time to see what is in store for a new year in motorcycling. KTM recently confirmed their Dual Sport and Adventure Touring model lineup, along with USA pricing for 2016. There are just a few changes for 2016 in the Adventure Touring range but some exciting new updates have occurred in the smaller Dual Sport models. Here is the complete list of KTM 2016 models in the Adventure Touring and Dual Sport range, including MSRP pricing and any new features or changes that have occurred.

The 350 EXC-F is the little brother to the 500 EXC but offers even more nimble handling and improved fuel efficiency. The 350 craves the tightest trails and harshest off-road conditions but it is street legal, so you can still take it on the road to link up trails. For 2016, a new front axle reduces weight and provides better front-end feel, and the axle offset has been adjusted to increase stability. The KTM 350 EXC-F also gets new fork protectors that are easier to clean and now comes with a skid plate standard. the 350 EXC-F also gets a new orange anodized rear sprocket, orange front mask and new graphic treatments on the seat cover and upper forks. With all the new changes comes a small price increase of $200 for 2016.

With its powerful engine, lightweight chassis and race-proven suspension, it’s capable of going virtually anywhere you point it.

Yes, that would have been a nice Christmas surprise. Let’s hope that it’s worth the wait when if and when it does come!
