Daryl Dixon's New Enduro Motorcycle In Walking Dead
« on: March 06, 2019, 05:28:34 PM »
Daryl Dixon played by Norman Reedus rides a new motorcycle in the television series Walking Dead. The  motorcycle is a KTM 525 EXC. The KTM 525 EXC is an enduro motorcycle and was manufactured from 2003-2007. The motorcycle is still manufactured today, but is now called the KTM 500. The KTM 500cc class of enduro motorcycles were manufactured from 1989 to the present. All 500 class EXC motorcycles during that time used the same naming convention other motorcycle manufacturers use to denote a change in engine size, 500, 520, 525, and 530 etc, yet the KTM EXC 500 class always used the same 510.4cc engine even though the misleading name indicated a change in displacement between different models.

The KTM 525 EXC motorcycle is more appropriate for Dayle Dixon to ride trhough Zombie infested area's than his old Triumph or Yamaha street bike. I always thought the KLR 650 would be a good motorcycle to have in any war torn area with its 6 gallon gas tank and reliable thumper motor, but I doubt you will ever see one in Walking Dead. I don't know what episode or season the KTM motorcycle first appeared and I don't know what happened to Daryl's Yamaha. I don't watch the show on a regular basis.
