What is the difference between the KTM 300 EXC and the KTM 300 XC-W?

Recommended Posts

I don't know but there must be a difference if they have different models.

They're the same bikes. The EXC line got rebranded to XC-W in 2008. The current EXC models are 50 state street legal out of the box.

Thanks for the help!

That's true for the 4 stroke models in the U.S.

 

the 300 is a 2 stroke

 

The 300exe is not offered in the US only the XC and XCW. The 300exe in Europe comes with lights. While the XCW is more a race bike.

The 300XC-W has lights... the 300EXC is also a race bike.  That's why 95% of extreme enduro racers use it across the pond.

Generally the years they were made..  XC-w's and EXC's have the linkless suspension and a wider ratio tranny in general..  They usually come with all the lighting stuff installed or in the case of some years XC-W the wiring is there but no lights.. What year are you looking at?

As far as I know with bikes sold in the USA:

 

EXC USED to mean what XC-W means today, and now, the EXC is the designation for their dual-purpose (on/off-road) bikes.

If you read on what another country has, it will be different.

Exc are available in the USA ( six days)

Yes, the 4T's were available in the 6Days version. In the U.S., all the EXC's are the 4T versions.
