The enduro version of KTM's acclaimed 350 SX motocross machine has been launched, and is set to go on sale in Australia in the second half of 2012

KTM has launched its 2012 enduro range in Italy, and there was one machine which stole the show – the all-new 350 EXC-F.

The bike is without a doubt one of the most anticipated enduro bikes for a very long time, and with some justification. Following the initial hype of the 350 SX and the subsequent MX1 world motocross title in 2010 via Italian Antonio Cairoli, the 350 EXC-F has been on the lips of serious enduro riders ever since.

And the hype has intensified since then, with Briton David Knight managing to win a round of the 2011 Enduro World Championship on the 350 EXC-F Factory, as KTM follows the familiar path of putting its new models through the wringer of competition before they are released in production guise.

That time has now arrived and, according to the Bikesales Network’s European correspondent, the 350 EXC-F isn't one to fluff its lines --  “a bike that keeps getting better the faster you ride” and “performs well in every situation”.

The 2012 KTM enduro range will start to go on sale locally in late July, with pricing still to be announced.
