I am reluctantly offering my pristine 2007 KTM 525XC-W for sale after only one month of ownership. I am 46 year old rider who has been out of dirt bikes since the mid 1970s and this bike is just too much for the combo of my skills and the tight single track around my home in Big Sky, MT. That combined with two kids under the age of three make it tough to re-acquire the skills of my youth. I acquired the bike from a 40+ year old dentist in Connecticut who took meticulous care of the bike which weas one of five in his stable.
As one can see from the pictures below the bike is in near mint condition with only 31.5 hours on the clock of which 12 hours are from my use. In fact, the first owner had this bike dressed in super moto garb (cushioned rear hub, super moto wheels, oil cooler, etc) and it was never ridden on the dirt until I purchased it last month. As a result, the bike has only 12 hours of dirt time.
The bike has a street title and license plate from MT and had the same from CT before my purchase. I am reasonably confident it can be licensed for street use (if desired) in any state but I do not have any way of knowing the rules in every state so please check w/ your local DMV to be sure if this is of interest.
I am a long time owner of high end vintage sports cars and I take great pride in keeping my toys in perfect order and this bike has been no exception. The valves have been checked adjusted at 3 hours (per KTM recommendations), again at 15.8 hours, and finally at 27.8 hours. Oil and filter changes have been made every couple of hours. The radiators have been flushed and refilled,
This bike has some great options to make it the consummate off roader with the ability to link trails via the road. Options included in the price are as follows:
Features & Options

Other options which will be sold separately (w/ first option given to the buyer of the bike) include:

- Flatland Engineering aluminum skid plate (12 hours use, virtually new)
- Scotts steering stabilizer
The suspension is stock with a 80/250 rear spring and 4.4N/mm front springs. The tires and rims are original. The bike runs like a scalded cat and looks almost as good as it runs. This is the latest rendition of the RFS motor which has been proven over a number of years. You will not be disappointed with this bike as it is basically new. It would cost close to $9,000 to reproduce this bike from a new 525XC-W.
As most of you who are reading this know, the XC-W retains the wide ratio six speed transmission like the EXC but does not have all of the power restrictions of the 07 EXC. As a result it runs much cleaner and faster than a stock 07 EXC but is still street legal (at least in MT and CT)...the best of both worlds in my opinion.
I will ship but do not have access, or the time, to crate the bike. When I purchased the bike, I used a great door-to-door shipping service that got the bike to me within a two weeks in perfect condition and I would highly recommend this option. However, if you make arrangements w/ a shipper or a shop w/i 50 miles from my home, I would be more than happy to deliver the bike to them for crating and shipping, but please note that I can not be responsible for poor packing or shipping damage if you choose that option. It pains me to sell this incredible motorcycle but it is time for someone else to enjoy its bountiful fruits!
I am happy to accomodate pre-purchase inspections at your choice of shops or mechanics within a 50 mile radius of Big Sky, MT (zip 59716 at the buyers expense).
