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 450 EXC-F Six Days Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits
Engine & Exhaust
The hugely successful KTM 450 EXC-F power plant has kept its key ingredients the same for 2019 – compact dimensions, relentless performance throughout the rev range and low weight. Fitted with a single overhead-camshaft cylinder head and the latest electronic fuel injection, it churns out horsepower in line with what you’d expect from a pure-bred factory race weapon.
Just like the rest of its SIX DAYS brethren, the 450 EXC-F SIX DAYS shares a race-winning chassis setup. WP suspension keeps the wheels planted, while weight-saving efforts and performance-orientated materials ensure riders and racers are well-looked after on the trail or on track.
Ergonomics & Comfort
Enduro racing is all about tough, technical terrain and fast, wide-open straights. It goes without saying that riders need to be able to move about the bike freely. With that in mind, KTM has ensured that the same READY TO RACE ergonomics of 2018 has been retained for 2019.
Bodywork & Graphics
Flying the Chilean colors for 2019, the plastics on the 450 EXC-F SIX DAYS share the same I-beam structure on its front and rear fenders as the rest of the multi-race winning enduro range. This guarantees maximum stability and low weight thanks to well thought-out construction and mounting points.
Software & Electronics
A state-of-the-art Keihin engine management system with electronic fuel injection features a unique injector position to give instant throttle response a whole new meaning. While on-the-fly engine mapping settings keep the power delivery perfectly mated to every condition.
