KTM Freeride 350

Off-road disciplines are quite specific and can be off-putting to road riders, so we love the fact the KTM Freeride exists. The creation of a toned-down, hybrid enduro makes it more accessible to you and I by leaving competition at the door, and focusing purely on fun.

“The Freeride 350 is perfect for off-road hobbyists. It’s bags of fun to ride, ridiculously light and although not intended for road work, will do it.”

Runner-up: KTM 350 EXC-F

If you’re going to ride enduro for fun or competitions, the 350 EXC-F is a superb base with excellent build quality, high quality components and a tractable four-stroke engine.

Runner-up: Honda CRF250L

Globetrotter Steph Jeavons has chosen to ride a CRF250L on a two-year adventure crossing seven continents and 42 countries. If that isn’t an endorsement for the CRF’s go-anywhere robustness, we don’t know what is.
