KTM unveils its next generation of ready to race two-stroke enduro machines for 2019


Following on from KTM’s revolutionary range of two-stroke enduro machine which were introduced last year, the Austrian’s continue to push the boundaries of what’s possible, refining and updating its EXC line-up for 2019.

For 2019, its KTM 250 EXC TPI and KTM 300 EXC have had a bit of an overhaul, with improved WP fork settings and a reworked WP shock absorber with re-designed main pistons and settings, which work to provide improved confidence-inspiring damping characteristics. That’s not all, there’s high-quality Brembo brakes, No-Dirt footpegs, a NEKEN handlebar, a new seat cover, a stronger battery and new graphics with a READY TO RACE orange frame compliment. Plus CNC milled hubs with high-end black Giant rims also come as standard on these championship winning machines. In short – they’re well specced bits of kit.

And to accompany the new KTM EXC model line-up is KTM’s PowerWear collection, allowing you to suit up from a wide range of off-road and casual gear. And for riders wishing to customise their machine, there’s a wide range of KTM PowerParts. Not bad, right?

 Joachim Sauer, KTM Senior Product Manager for off-road, said: “The last two years have been incredibly exciting for our Enduro machine development here at KTM. A brand new ground-breaking generation for model year 2017 that had been re-designed from the ground up has been followed by series-production fuel-injection 2-stroke models for 2018. It’s been an incredibly fast-moving but fruitful few years in terms of development for this segment in which we remain the market leaders. Model year 2019 sees some key adjustments across all models, along with more in-depth refinements for our KTM 125 XC-W and KTM 150 XC-W machines. As we step into a new era of enduro, we are looking forward to the latest KTM EXC models reaching the dealer floors”.
