I am the second owner of this 520 EXC. The first owner felt the bike was too much. Personally this bike is the best I have ever owned. I love to ride tight and technical; with the 520 I can ride the nastiest terrain - slimy, rocky or tight single track. The bike performs flawlessly. The gearing is not stock at 13/48 with a short chain to shorten the wheel base which makes the bike handle great in tight sections. The power on tap makes up for the extra weight. Components and reliability are outstanding; the bike just takes a beating and never looks back.

I bought mine new in November.I had A thermostat problem but that is all.It came GREEN labled but the dealer set me the right jetting to fix.I changed my sprockets to 13 and 52,what a tractor.It comes right out of the hole hard and still runs out at 85 mph.The bike has all the bells and whistles and is street legal.Sometimes i wonder how it is possable to ride somthing like this as a duel sport on the road,with a crack of the throttle up it comes what a bike.I have 1300 miles on it and paid 7395.00 at dealer.Go buy a CR450F for 6300.00 and then convert it over to be street legal duel sport.LOVE IT

I just recently bought a KTM 520EXC, and in my opinion its a very powerful, good working bike. This is my first bike and i love it. I find its one of the most pretty bikes you can buy. The power is incredible, especially for being my first bike. when the bike can do 100mph stock ,that tells you something.

I bouht this bike as soon as it was available. bought it from cycle improvements. Good guys know there stuff. I have torcherd this machine, it has been thrashed through the tight trails of the Ganaraska forest on a regular baisis and last summer i brought it all the way to Alberta and BC threw the rocky mountains. i nearly lost it underneath the muscag. I road it to the highest operational lookout point in north america. I put scott stailess oil filters in and i change the oil religously. Checked valve clearances on occation. i beat on this bike and it wont give up. i recomend it to serious riders looking for the best in everything. was die hard honda , but this will be hard to beat!

Comes with all the best stuff, but the guys putting this bike together have no clue. My first one blew all the oil out with in the first 20 min. KTM replaced the bike free of charge. Then my second bike started to leak oil bad. I found it to be a loose fastener in the valve cover. Then my hemi joint was installed wrong. I have sold the bike and will never ride a KTM again! For reliability get yourself a Honda XR or Yamaha WR450. I know it doesn't come with the good brakes, suspension, and handlebars and so on, but the engine is reliable and that is the heart of a bike, yes the Hondas XR's are heavy but I rather ride my XR back to the truck than push my KTM.

So far this has been a great bike. I use it mostly for riding single tracks and two tracks. Ocassionally hill climbing. I haven't found a hill the bike can't climb yet. On two tracks the power is awesome(100 mph is reachable with stock gearing). On single tracks the bike is a handful. Lots of power makes it real interesting in the tight woods. A 400 EXC probably would have been better for single tracks but would not have been as much fun in the open terrain. I would definitely recommend this bike to anyone who want a big horsepower thumper. Also the electric start is awesome.
