2012 KTM 200 EXC Review

200 EXC: THE PERFECT SYNTHESIS

The ideal combination of the playful handling of a 125 and the engine power of a 250cc enduro. A special bike that is not built for a specific Enduro World Championship class, but for all those who want to break fee from the competitive class-based society and who are looking for nothing more than fun, rideability, perfect ergonomics and reasonable costs. With even more performance than before and a completely revamped chassis, the 200 EXC satisfies these requirements even better than ever.


 

2012 KTM 200 EXC Features and Benefits

HANDLING OF A 125

NEW FRAME

The completely revamped frame made from high-quality chrome-molybdenum steel is characterised by even greater lateral stiffness. It is also even better at absorbing jolts introduced by the suspension system, whereby the playful handling and comfort of the 200 EXC have been further optimised.

NEW SWINGARM, NEW PDS, NEW SETTING

The 200 EXC’s new, lighter, cast aluminium swingarm accommodates the shock absorber more centrally, in order to load the swing arms more evenly. The new, 7 mm (0.28 in) longer PDS shock absorber with adjustable rebound and high/low-speed compression damping, and a new setting is installed more flatly, so providing even more progression.

TELESCOPIC FORK, NEW SETTING

The 200 EXC is equipped with the latest WP upside-down fork with wider adjustment ranges and a new setting. The sensitive responsiveness and outstanding damping of the open-cartridge fork with 48 mm (1.89 in) outer tubes are a perfect complement for the 200 EXC’s playful handling and precision.

NEW WHEELS

Practically unbeatable in terms of weight and stability, the new wheels have CNC-machined hubs, Excel rims, zinc/nickel-coated spokes and aluminium nipples. They reduce the unsprung and gyroscopic masses, hence bolstering the playful handling of the 200 EXC.

 

NOW EVEN MORE ERGONOMIC

BODYWORK, KICKSTARTER

The 200 EXC’s new bodywork with the very slim seat and spoiler lines, plus excellent contact points, perfects the bike’s ergonomics, making handling even simpler and more precise. The longer rear fender protects the rider and the redesigned kickstarter makes it easier to start the engine.

 

PERFORMANCE OF A 250

NEW INTAKE SNORKEL, NEW AIRBOX

The redesigned airbox on the 200 EXC and the flow-optimised intake flange between the airbox and the carburettor now ensure even better charging with fresh gas. This results in even freer revving and even more power in all rev ranges for the liquid-cooled, two-stroke machine.
