Give them a call...


Oops, just saw this: not XCFW,EXC

Great idea tho,
Going by the part number it's the same flywheel as the 2012 350 EXC-F and XCF-W and the 250's
Unfortunately I can't find one for 250 either

Revised Horsepower is at 30 hp from the latest UK bikes. The book has standard KTM maintenance intervals, but expect to be relaxed when not used at race pace. All included earlier in this thread...

After a 6 month wait, I finally picked mine up yesterday

The bike shop re-flashed the upgraded map onto the ecu before delivery, can't wait to go out and play.

Have been pestering my friend who works for KTM, asking when we're going to get them over here in the US. Would really like to be riding one of these things.

I paid au$10,295 on road ,probably a bit pricey for a trail bike, but the engine,chassis and components
are so much better than any of the Japanese trail bikes eg: TTR, CRF230, KLR.
Not bagging those bikes as they would be better for loading stuff onto for extended trips, where I mostly do
single trail day trips and the handling of the FreeRide is so sweet for that.

US price for a KTM 350 EXC is approximately $9,500. Estimated price for a US spec Freeride is expected to be $8,500. I can't find the reference right now (it might be earlier in this thread - its only 30 pages, so just sit down and read it from the beginnning). I put the data into my database when I came across it in September. I suppose I should say don't quote me, but that is my reference until we get more definitive pricing from KTM.

Just to put that into perspective, a 2013 EXC-F 350 is $12,500 here in Oz.

My son and I were just having a discussion on economics and sustainability, so I just couldn't resist doing a quick Google Search:

2011 US Median household income: US $51,413 (US Census data)
2011 Australian Median household income: AU $64,168 (Australia Census data @ $1,234/wk x 52 weeks)
Current (November 16, 2012) exchange rate: US $1.0000 = AU $0.9678

Until very recently, the Australian economy has been quite strong relative the the US economy.

Straight conversion of MSRP US to AU: US $9,500 / 0.9678 = AU $9,816

Also, if I recall correctly (I haven't been to OZ since 1988), Australia has/had some pretty stiff import duties on any foreign products that compete with similar products that are locally manufactured in Australia - what in America would be called trade protection tarrifs. As I said, I'm not current on Australian import duties, so I may be way off-base with my thoughts, but are there any motorcycle brands that are built or assembled in OZ? [e.g. Holden has/had a relationship with General Motors.]

Whatever the import duties maybe, the combination of economic factors is a higher price for Austrian (KTM) made motorcycles in OZ than in the US, even though US EPA certification adds a lot of cost to importing products here. (Is there a similar process in Australia?)

Isn't the world of international economics and global trade an interesting place?

The Australian govt. puts a 10% "goods and Services Tax" on all imports.
You may get concessions if you have a big company, support the party in office and make generous political contributions.
But for the general populace, we pay our payrol tax and then on our net we pay tax again on everthing else we buy.
