Question 525 MXC vs. 525 EXC

Does anyone know why KTM refers to the MXC model as "The Long Distance King"? Aside from the larger volume gas tank...does it haver a higher 6th gear that makes the top speed higher than that of the EXC? If not, does anyone know the approximate top end speed? Thanks.

I'm 99% sure the EXC has a 2.1 gallon tank while the MXC has a 2.4 gallon tank.

The MXC has a close ratio tranny. First is higher, for some odd reason, while 6th is lower, I think about 8-10% lower. So it would be slower on topend. No clue on topend speeds as I've never topped either of my RFS's out but it would also depend on your gearing. The only reason it'd be the long distance king would be the tank. The SX has a 2 gallon, the EXC has a 2.1-2.2 and the MXC has the big 'ol 3.5 gallon tank.

I have/had two RFS's (see sig) and both were EXC's. First one held 2.2 and the 03 held 2.1. I put IMS tanks on both of them.

Jeb, you brought up an interesting thought.

The thumper tanks must be smaller than the 2 stroker's.

I'll stand corrected on your statement then.

Hey Rick,

Yeah, they are smaller. I couldn't believe how much smaller when I went 2 stroke to 4 stroke. Hence the IMS tanks.
