Introducing the 2021 KTM 300 XC TPI…

Take the unrelenting ferocity of an SX bike, add a few extra horsepower and torque, a longer-range fuel tank and an 18″ rear wheel to accommodate more rubber, and you’re well-armed to dominate the dirt. In a nutshell, the KTM 300 XC TPI is arguably the most accomplished cross-country racer available.

Unrivaled torque, light weight and rock-solid handling make it an unstoppable machine for extreme cross-country terrain. The KTM 300 XC TPI, now proudly adding TPI to its name, further demonstrates KTM’s unrelenting commitment to 2-stroke advancement. The benefits are clear: besides huge improvements in fuel efficiency and exhaust emissions, the system also removes the need for pre-mixing fuel and re-jetting, meaning that with less effort, the engine always runs smoothly and crisply. The KTM 300 XC TPI is the most READY TO RACE offroad 2- stroke 300 ever created.

2021 KTM 300 XC TPI Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits


When it comes to power delivery and performance, the exhaust plays a key role and packs a punch that is hard to beat. The 250 cc and 300 cc models feature HD exhaust pipes (heavy-duty) made by using an innovative 3D stamping process which produces a ribbed surface finish. This makes the pipe much stronger, with better resistance against rocks, while also helping to reduce noise drastically. The silencer features a compact shape and end cap with internal designs individually developed for each model, while it is mounted using an aluminum mounting bracket. In addition, the exhaust’s shape provides slim ergonomics and more ground clearance, while a perforated inner silencer tube works with lighter damping material for efficient and durable noise reduction.


The 300 cc 2-stroke engine is known and respected for offering the most powerful 2-stroke performance in its segment. Thanks to state-of-the-art engineering, innovative 2-stroke design and revolutionary TPI fuel injection technology, the powerplant is more refined than ever before. The compact and lightweight 2-stroke is a great choice for all Enduro riders searching for easy-to-ride Enduro performance with the power and torque to conquer the most extreme climbs


The air filter box design offers maximum protection of the air filter against soiling, while ensuring maximum airflow, and together with the intake snorkels, results in optimal power and throttle response. The large Twin Air air filter is mounted on a stiff cage, which at the same time holds the system in place. This design is so simple, you could still pop a fresh one in with a face full of mud. Without tools. In seconds.


The high-tech, lightweight chrome-moly steel frame has a knack for easy handling, outlandish rideability, precise cornering and excellent stability. You can also count on precisely calculated stiffness of the frame. This results in better absorption of the energy created from the front and rear suspension, sucking up jumps and bumps. In short: more comfort and less rider fatigue. Laterally attached, lightweight aluminum engine head stays (the connection between cylinder head and frame) contribute to more precise cornering and a reduced vibration level. The engineers were able to pull off all that, while making their frame 2.2 pounds lighter than that of the lightest competitor on the market. In addition, it is easier to maintain, easier to work on and supplies more space for the tank and other components. The bike also features an extra-light subframe made of aluminum, which tips the scales at less than 2 pounds


The XC range features state-of-the-art seat technology with a newly shaped surface that provides improved ergonomics and much better seat comfort thanks to higher foam padding. The seat is conveniently fixed to the bike using one long, lateral screw, making it safe and easy to handle.


KTM engineers sure know how to handle handlebars. This tapered unit, made of high-strength aluminum by NEKEN, features a throttle assembly which has a twin-cable for TPI models just like their 4-stroke brothers with a double-cable aluminum body and straightforward free-play adjustment.
