In the off-road world, the arrival of the four-stroke engine was a true revolution. A world that survived between 125cc, 200cc, 250cc etc … models saw how four and a half, and even 500cc came to stay and reap absolutely all the possible successes in competition. The tractorian sound of single-cylinder cars was even heard in Freestyle competitions. With Japan having left the technology two times in the trunk of memories It is the responsibility of European factories like KTM to keep these legends alive. which, on the other hand, continue to have thousands of enthusiasts. One of the motorcycles that the Austrian brand currently has in its catalog is the KTM EXC 300, perhaps the best expression of this mechanic in recent years.
It turns out that, almost by accident, I came across the YouTube channel of Adam Riemann, pilot, photographer and writer. Head of Motology Films Adam has on his channel a wide collection of high-quality shorts dedicated to the off-road world. Among all those little works there was one that particularly caught my attention: "The Power of Sound", it's called. I did not expect to find anything and I came across a video capable of making me relive that beautiful two-beat sound, full of rage and adrenaline. With highs and lows produced by the lack of grip of a rear wheel that struggles to anchor itself to a loose and soft ground. If you miss two times, these will be the best ten minutes you can spend today in front of the screen.
