A proper top 5 dual sport bike wouldn’t be complete without a little something from the “Ready to Race” brand. While there is some debate between the 350 and the 500 both being worthy of a place in the top five, we opted for the 500 simply because the extra displacement adds to the bike’s on-road ability.  

For 2020, KTM reworked the chassis and made the four-stroke 510 cc mill even more compact. The power to weight ratio makes the 500 EXC-F one of the most thrilling rides on our list and the addition of a new 42mm throttle body, airbox, and exhaust also optimize the power characteristics of the dual-sport.
