KTM EXC MODEL YEAR 2019 HAS ARRIVED!
Thanks to a long history as part of the foundation of the company and with many milestones achieved in producing READY TO RACE, world-beating enduro machines, KTM’s strive for excellence has ensured the orange brand remains the market-leader in the segment with the KTM EXC line-up. Last year the Austrian manufacturer announced the world’s first serial-production, fuel-injection 2-stroke offroad competition machines with the KTM 250 EXC TPI and KTM 300 EXC TPI models that have taken the possibilities of enduro to new heights, whilst complimenting the high-quality, high-performing 4-stroke models within the range.
However, the KTM R&D department in Mattighofen never rests; the latest generation of KTM EXC enduros receive updates for model year 2019 with improved WP fork settings, and a reworked WP shock absorber with a re-designed main piston and settings for improved, confidence-inspiring damping characteristics. A new seat cover, stronger battery and new graphics with a READY TO RACE factory-looking orange frame compliment the high-quality Brembo brakes, No-Dirt footpegs, NEKEN handlebar, CNC milled hubs with high-end black Giant rims and more that comes as standard on these championship winning machines.
For model year 2019 the KTM 125 XC-W and KTM 150 XC-W 2-strokes, designed for closed-course use, receive a new cylinder with a machined exhaust port and a new power valve for high-end performance. An optimized kick-starter seat along with an ultra-compact, newly designed DS clutch with a new clutch cover reduces overall engine width over previous models. In addition, a re-worked 6-speed transmission offers better function and improved reliability.
To accompany the new KTM EXC model line-up is the KTM PowerWear collection. To suit up and ride to the limit, KTM offers a wide range of high-quality, high-performance riding gear for riders to state their stance while dealing with the toughest of terrain, along with a vast array of casual clothing to stay READY TO RACE even on non-dirtbiking days. In addition, from conception of each KTM enduro model our engineers, along with leading accessories manufacturers, have developed a large selection of KTM PowerParts for those wishing to individualize their machine whether it’s for aesthetics or refined performance to take their ride to new heights.
2019 KTM 250 XC-W TPI Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits
Engine & Exhaust
The KTM 250 XC-W TPI is fitted with a newly developed TPI (transfer port injection) fuel injection system. This patented EFI system features two injectors that makes for a much smoother power delivery, and a notable reduction in fuel consumption. It is a global game changer in terms of technology. On top of that, the KTM 250cc powerhouse features a modern shaft arrangement that’s beneficial in terms of mass centralization, a well-protected E-starter, a balancer shaft for low engine vibration, a 6-speed Enduro transmission and a hydraulically operated DDS clutch. This is a 2-stroke symphony when keeping it pinned on the pipe, while still being able to deliver ultra-smooth and reliable drive when you need it.
The KTM 250 XC-W TPI excels across all tracks and landscapes, thanks in part to its low weight and slim design. This makes it a no brainer when you’re racing across extreme cross-country terrain.
Ergonomics & Comfort
Perfect ergonomics and contact points provide maximum comfort in movement on the 250 XC-W TPI and ensures that the same READY TO RACE ergonomics of previous years have been retained for 2019.
Bodywork & Graphics
I-beam construction on the front and rear fenders guarantees maximum stability speed by reducing flex. They also stay cleaner for longer with a clever design that expels mud and grime, while a clever brake hose routing on the front number plate prevents unnecessary wear from friction.
Software & Electronics
The electronics on the 2019 250 XC-W TPI are impressive to say the least. Automatic altitude and temperature compensation means there is no need to set up the TPI for the prevailing environmental conditions, while an integrated oil pump ensures the perfect fuel-oil mixture. An engine mapping switch is also available that allows riders to select alternate power maps to best suit the terrain and conditions.
