2014 KTM Freeride 350 Is Lighter and Better [Photo Gallery]
The gearbox has received the biggest revision, with the last gear now longer and with a different ratio, making high-speed riding more fuel-efficient for more off-road fun with a full tank. Longer road sections are now easier to cover at higher speed and with more peace of mind.
Numerous other parts have also been redesigned for weight saving, and thanks to these revisions, the bike is now under the 100 kg mark: 99.5 kg (291.6 lbs) dry, to be exact.
The 349.7cc liquid-cooled single is mated to a versatile 6-speed gearbox which is able to deliver the right amount of power and torque for pretty much any scenario. The USD WP forks have a 250mm travel, while the single rear WP shock, a 280mm one, to meet the demands of riding on really rough surfaces.
Add in the wave rotors for both wheels, 325mm of clearance and the off-road knobbies, and you've got yourself an enduro machine which can really carry you everywhere, from the river beds to the mountain summits. The Europe price tag reads €7,798 ($10,290).
