The 500 EXC is basically an off-road competition machine with the required bolts-ons to make it street legal. This makes it very useful for riding to the trails but its minimalist seat, off-road tuning and knobby tires make it a bit of slog on extended pavement runs. Also available as a Six Days special with stronger wheels and bright sticker job for an additional $1000.
