On single track, this bike feels like a feather-weight compared to my 450 exc. This bike is a blast to ride. I was twice as fast through the woods on it. My riding buddies commented on how much faster I was...it was the bike! This thing makes you a better rider. I rode it in two enduros so far and greatly improved my finish positions. My only problem with it is that I had to replace the piston after only 70 hours. Maybe going under water twice had something to do with it. Best woods bike yet. KTM knows what the're doing. Try a trails tire on the back and ride some rocky trails sometime. They don't last long but you will be impressed.

I was always turned off by the price of the KTM line. I knew the 300 XCW had great reviews, but thought I could make an MXer a good wood bike. I tried CRF450R, KZ250, and CRF250. All of which I poured hundreds into making them woods racers. My CRF250R was fairly successful, but those top ends where eating my wallet up (and I do most of my own mechanic work). I finally took the plunge into the KTM world. All I can say is WOW!! What the heck was I waiting for. My first ride on this thing had my going faster than my super nimble and torqy CRF250R. You can brake slide / power slide this bike just like 4 stokers. Great bike! Spend the money and get one. You won't regret it.

I call it a 3-stroke because it's the best of both worlds. Light, crisp and responsive like a 2-stroke should be, yet it can lug down low and just cruise around if you want, too... like a 4-stroke. This is the best all around bike made. It handles the gnarliest single track there is, and the biggest hills in the Mojave.

This ride is second to none in the woods. Unstoppable torque, excellent handling and very well balanced. The exhaust valve can be adjusted from mild to wild with little effort. The optional ignition mapping switch allows you to tame it in the tight and wet stuff. The rear single link swingarm tracks wickedly well with no surprises. I am a 34 year vet with tons of war wounds and could not be happier with this ride. I can't wait for the 09 season to start.

I just bought my 300XC-W (E) this past weekend. I can't really say I'm upgrading, so I'll just say I am switching directions from a SX525 so that I can play more in the woods, trails, and short hare-scrambles. So far I'm very impressed, it's typical KTM quality. The clutch is excellent and it doesn't wear out your forearm. Both the kick and the electric start work great. Throttle response is great with tons of power. I might experiment with one of the three different power valve springs. Red is definitely the 'hotter' spring making the bike behave like a SX. It has very light steering which makes the 300 feel 20+ lbs lighter than the 525. The bike is taller than the 525, but once you're moving you don't really notice it. More updates to come later. I'm very happy with the bike.

This bike has an excellent attention to detail, construction, and stock parts are ready to race. This bike requires only adjustment and not really any aftermarket equipment to perform. You can add protection, but right out of the box is a winner. The newer 300 engine is as mellow and agressive as any rider wants to make it. The e-start is a hit and is not a factor for an already light and flickable bike. This engine is a 250 on steroids requiring rider energy. Motor is very tunable thanks to a dual map ignition, tunable power valve spring and other regular things like jetting and gearing. Best KTM I have ever ridden.
