Vagabund is an Austrian aftermarket company specializing in minimalistic and sleek bolt-on kits for multiple motorcycles. Since the early 2000s, Vagabund has become known for its MX-inspired creations. Which have been attached to a few KTM’s in the past.
Two years after launching the V13 based on Honda’s Dominator. The Austrian tuner has crafted a similar kit for KTM’s EXC 350. Dubbed the Safari Kit, the kit features a similar geometry as the V13.
While KTM’s EXC 350 may not be the most powerful, fastest. Or best-handling bike in its class, it is one of the most versatile and is therefore rather popular among dual-sports enthusiasts who want to use their bikes for both on and off-road purposes.

That seems to have been the tricky question that inspired Vagabund to launch a set of optional bolt-on kits. Will make the bike perfect for long-distance rides and when traversing rough terrain.
It involves several mixtures of polyamide 12 plastics (automotive industry quality) and handmade metal parts (rear frame).Act as a bolt onto the popular Austrian dual sportbike.
Vagabund, an accomplished design and engineering house, always seems to bring the wow factor to some of its bikes. With KTM’s latest 350 EXC Dual Sport. Which was initially unveiled as a spartan and minimalist lightweight crossover.
