2008 KTM 530 XC-W(R)... how does it compare?

Recommended Posts

I've only read Dirt Rider's March 2008 rave review of this bike. Does anyone in here have personal knowledge or opinions of this KTM? Also, how do the performance characteristics of the 530 XC-R(W) compare with those of the KTM 530 EXC or the Honda CRF-450X? Any info is helpful... thanks!

Does KTM use the same transmission for the EXC and the XC-W? Some have suggested the EXC has taller gearing... others say the only difference is that the XC-W is not street legal.

I'd like to know, but I can't seem to dig up the right info on this.

The EXC and the XCR-W are basically the same bikes except that the EXC is street legal. Same engine but 'smogged' and higher 15/45 gearing.
