When the chips are down…

No other brand is represented in offroad sports with a history of success that can even compare to that of KTM. The special edition Six Days models celebrate this success with special performance upgrades and top-of-the-line components. In 2015 the ISDE (International Six Days of Enduro) will be held in Slovakia, and the KTM model line-up has been suitably equipped to handle anything the muddy and rocky terrain can throw at it.

2016 KTM 300 XC-W Six Days www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Improved performance

The airbox on the KTM 300 XC-W Six Days allows maximum air to pass through, but minimal dust and spray. Replacement of the twin-air filter takes approx. 15 seconds, without any tools. Absolutely “READY TO RACE”.

Optimised engine
The powerful KTM 300 XC-W Six Days engine fitted with 6-speed transmission and electric starter unites an unbeatable 2-Stroke power-to-weight ratio with outstanding performance and responsive handling.


Slim ergonomics for perfect control

The KTM 300 XC-W Six Days has bodywork with extremely slim ergonomics and excellent contact points between rider and machine. It provides unlimited freedom of movement.

All XC-W models are fitted with the super strong, tapered Neken handlebars made of high tensile strength aluminum alloy. The proven standard KTM mount allows the handlebar to be fixed in four different positions. The open hand guards are serial equipment providing optimum protection of the rider’s hands.


Superior chassis

Individual suspension setting
Each XC-W model has its own individual suspension settings, optimally tuned to weight and engine. At the rear, a PDS shock absorber from WP Suspension works with a direct linkage to the upper side of the swingarm. The wide range of setting options for rebound damping and high- and low-speed compression damping are standard on KTM bikes.

Telescopic fork
The KTM Six Days models are equipped with a 48 mm 4CS closed-cartridge fork from WP Suspension. The 4-chamber technology (4CS) patented by WP not only provides a key benefit in terms of responsiveness and consistent damping characteristics, it is also lighter and oil services prove to be far simpler than on conventional closed-cartridge versions. Suspension settings can easily be adapted to the terrain and rider in a matter of a few clicks at the top of the fork: compression damping on the left-hand shaft, rebound damping on the right – another advantage of the 4CS technology.

The modern frame design of the 300 XC-W Six Days, comprising lightweight, high strength, chrome-molybdenum steel section tubes, combines maximum longitudinal stiffness with optimum torsional stiffness. It guarantees easy handling and precise steering behavior, as well as excellent ride stability. The frame also clearly represents the benchmark in terms of weight and stability. The frame color shines in the same orange as the KTM factory racing team, making the styling even more attractive. Thanks to the frame design and in conjunction with the rear PDS damping system, impacts at the rear wheel are absorbed and dissipated optimally. For 2016 the frame is protected by a robust skidplate.

The cast aluminum swingarm has been developed with state-of-the-art calculation and simulation software and constructed for minimum weight, optimum stiffness and precisely defined flexibility.

Triple clamp
The high-end CNC machined triple clamps have been specifically designed for off-road use and ensures precise handling thanks to precision clamping of the fork legs. The rider receives precise feedback from the front wheel, even in the toughest terrain, thereby increasing riding safety and speed.

High quality wheels
The high-quality alloy wheels from GIANT made of extremely durable 7050 aluminum, featuring exclusive Six Days lettering and CNC-machined hubs, are standard on all KTM Six Days Models. An additional Six Days standard feature – a Supersprox 2-piece rear sprocket with steel outer ring and aluminum star.

High-tech Brembo brakes have always been standard equipment on KTM off-road bikes, and combined with the lightweight Wave discs, they are the ultimate solution in braking technology. Being the class-leading brakes in off-road, they are unchanged for 2016.
