Yep first post and I have a question. First, I have been riding for 51 years and have raced at the top level for only a year. I haven't ridden in about ten years and decided to get back to riding and racing at 63. I found a 2011 KTM 350 XCF with 34 hours and they want 3500.00 for the bike. While it's just a picture, the bike looks new and does not seem to have been ridden hard and put away wet. I plan to race Hare Scrambles and maybe an Enduro or two going forward. What does everyone think of the bike and how does the price seem compared to the hours on the bike. Thanks very much and I appreciate the wisdom.

That's a fair price. My buddy sold his 2011 KTM 350 that had 200 hours for 3,600.00 a couple months ago. Prior to that he sold his 2012 KTM 350 with 185 hours for 4,200.00

For location reference, this was up in Norcal area.

For perspective, a 2011 350 is about on par in performance with a current gen 250f...

Look for a 2013+ if you want 350f performance closer to what currently offered...

2016 350 XC-F with 2 hours. Pile of shit. Never own a KTM after this.

Agree with get a 13 or newer, totally different engine in terms of performance and cc forks can be made to work perfect
I had one w80 hours, no issues valves perfect spec etc, bike was a rocket ship

Can’t beat the price IMO, 53-63 may be enough reasoning to ease back into it with an affordable bike that will do the job your looking to do.

If you find the mo-jo coming back you can go to the next level of bike.

62 yo with a 2012 that serves me well. I’m sure it’s not the caliber of current models but I’m not aspiring to be the next big thing. Photo

Thanks for all of the advice. I have not owned a four stroke off road bike since the early 70's although I have ridden a few newer four strokes mainly 250F's but again that was over ten years ago and things have changed a lot. It just seem to me the four strokes work well off road and would be great for Hare Scrambles. I think there might be some bargains in a few months with the lockdowns coming.

I’m 64. Bought a 2012 SXF. It had 185 hours but the engine was freshly gone through. I have the receipts to prove it and all the old engine parts. Bought for $3,000 a year ago. It’s runs perfect and has plenty of power. It feels much lighter than my 2012 RMZ450 I sold a couple years ago. I have loved it. Your price sounds good and you will enjoy it.
