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. 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.
All XC-W models feature new high-tech, lightweight chromoly steel frames. This includes hydro-formed elements produced by state-of-the-art robot welding. They retain their race-proven geometries, but by re-designing certain areas, the stiffness has been optimized, resulting in better feedback for the rider, playful handling and improved stability. The laterally attached engine head stays (the connection between cylinder, head and frame) are now made of aluminum, reducing vibration and further contributing to precise cornering. The bikes also feature newly designed lateral frame guards with a structured surface, improving grip, while also serving as a heat protector against the muffler on the right side. On the KTM 300 XC-W TPI frame, the engine is lowered by 1° around the swing arm pivot improving front wheel traction significantly. The subframe is made of extra-light and stable aluminum profiles, weighing less than 900g and is 40 mm longer than before, providing better rear fender.
