Bodywork & Graphics

  • DECALS: New graphics convey the READY TO RACE character of the KTM XC-W model line.

Chassis

  • FRAME: The high-tech, lightweight chrome-moly steel frame is engineered for excellent handling, precise cornering and supreme stability. You can also count on high torsional rigidity and low longitudinal stiffness for better absorption of the energy created by the front and rear suspension sucking up jumps and bumps. In short: more comfort and less rider fatigue. Laterally attached, lightweight engine head stays contribute to a reduced vibration level. Two threaded inserts in the lower cradle tubes allow for an optional skid plate. The engineers were able to pull off all that, while making the frame two pounds lighter than that of the lightest competitor on the market. In addition, the frame 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 aluminum subframe, which weighs in at less than 2 pounds. The orange coating truly makes it stand out; precisely what an engineering masterpiece like this deserves.
  • FRONT SUSPENSION: The WP XPlor 48 upside-down fork is a split fork developed by WP in close collaboration with KTM. It is fitted with a spring on both sides but features separated functions for each fork leg: compression damping is fitted on the left side, while rebound is on the right. So the forks can easily be adjusted for compression and rebound with the twist of a dial on the top of the forks. In addition, a longer and sealed hydro-stop guarantees better resistance to bottoming-out. Due to high-quality materials and a state-of-the-art production process, the new XPlor 48 fork - with approx. 300 mm of travel - has outstanding response and damping characteristics and is about a half of a pound lighter than its predecessor.
  • REAR SUSPENSION: The WP XPlor PDS system is a KTM trademark where the shock absorber is directly connected to the upper side of the swingarm. We don’t use any linkage.The progressive damping is achieved by a second piston, which works together with a closed cup towards the end of the stroke. This design contributes to an optimal progression behavior of the damping supported by a progressive shock spring.Various machined and anodized components and a distinctive WP color trim (black reservoir, white spring, silver body) make this a valuable, high-end product compared to the roughcast bodies of many competitors. You’d hate to see it get dirty. Almost.
  • BRAKES: You can’t brake any harder, better, faster or stronger. High-tech Brembo calipers are combined with lightweight wave discs and feature a reduced piston diameter for better modulation. The rear brake now features a 10 mm longer brake pedal, and less aggressive brake pads are fitted front and rear. The steel-flex front brake hose gets more efficient protection and there’s an integrated channel for the speedo cable. First you outrun them, then you outbrake them.
  • WHEELS: The XC-W wheels feature lightweight, CNC machined hubs and high-end Giant rims guaranteeing maximum stability at minimum weight. The wheels are fitted with Dunlop AT 81 tires – perfect for surefooted performance offroad.
  • SWINGARM: The cast aluminum design offers low weight and a perfect flex behavior. The single-component casting process eliminates any inconsistencies and inherent weak points created by welding. It’s good looking as well.
  • TRIPLE CLAMP: The 300 XC-W TPI is fitted with forged triple clamps with an offset of 22 mm, ensuring a solid grip of the fork and precise handling. The handlebar is adjustable forwards and backwards over 4 positions; this XC-W will fit you like your favorite gloves.
  • FUEL TANK: This is a lightweight polyethylene tank with a capacity of 2.4 gallons. The XC-W TPI models incorporate an integrated fuel pump system and an additional fuel level sensor so you’ll always know when you’re running low on gas.
  • AIRBOX: 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.

Engine & Exhaust

  • ENGINE: When it comes to optimal power-to-weight ratio and outstanding Enduro specific performance the KTM 300 XC-W TPI engine reigns supreme. It features revolutionary TPI electronic fuel injection, which sets the benchmark in the offroad competition 2-stroke segment. And thanks to its modern architecture including high-end features such as the well protected E-starter, a cylinder with two injectors and power valve, a 6-speed Enduro transmission and a hydraulically operated DDS clutch, the KTM 300 XC-W TPI machine is the best choice when the going gets real tough.
  • ENGINE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM: The engine management system (EMS) of the TPI models features a control unit located below the seat. The control unit determines the ignition timing and the amount of fuel to inject is based on several sensor readings such as intake and ambient air pressure, throttle position, oil and water temperature. Thanks to altitude and temperature compensation the hassle and time of jetting a 2-stroke is no more.
  • CYLINDER: The KTM 300 XC-W TPI cylinder has a bore of 72 mm and is fitted with the sophisticated power valve, which provides really smooth and controllable power characteristics. For the EFI application the cylinder features two lateral domes that hold the fuel injectors supplying fuel into the rear transfer ports. The downstream injection guarantees excellent atomization of the fuel with the upstreaming air. Thus the loss of unburnt fuel is minimal for fewer emissions, a more efficient combustion and reduced fuel consumption. A little tube in the back of the cylinder is connected with an intake pressure sensor, which supplies pressure data to the control unit.
  • CRANKCASES AND ENGINE COVERS: For optimal mass centralization the lightweight die-cast crankcases hold the clutch shaft and the crankshaft in a high position close to the center of gravity for quick handling and a light feel. In addition, it allows the implementation of a balancer shaft. So your ride will be as relaxed as it is rapid. Plus, your new favorite engine will keep looking as fresh as the day you bought it: the engine covers feature a surface structure that reduces the wear caused by the rider’s boots.
  • CLUTCH: The KTM 300 XC-W TPI employs the KTM-developed DDS clutch (damped diaphragm steel) with a wear-free steel basket, extremely heat resistant clutch plates and nitrated steel liners. This clever design employs a diaphragm spring instead of the usual coil springs, making for considerably easier clutch action. A diaphragm spring also leaves sufficient space for a damping system to be integrated into the clutch hub. The goal is traction, but durability is as well. Light operation and telepathic amounts of control are standard with this hydraulic Brembo actuated clutch.
  • TRANSMISSION: This 6-speed Enduro transmission features an Enduro-specific wide-ratio specification and provides precise and easy shifting. An advanced ´No Dirt´ gear shift lever design prevents mud and dirt from blocking the joint. Because even dirt lovers hate mud when it’s in the wrong places.
  • BALANCER SHAFT: Say goodbye to numb feet and hands. This engine design allows the implementation of a lateral balancer shaft in order to keep the vibrations to a minimum. You know what that means: more comfort, less fatigue, more racing.
  • OIL PUMP: Pre-mixing 2-stroke fuel is a thing of the past for KTM XC-W TPI owners. An electronic oil pump feeds oil from the oil tank via the throttle body into the engine intake, and ensures a perfect fuel-oil mix in all conditions and engine speeds. The system, which reduces up to 50% of the smoke from the exhaust system over carburettor models, is managed by the control unit based on the engine’s revs and load measured by the TPS (throttle position sensor). The oil capacity of approximately 0.7 liters is enough for 5-6 refills of fuel, giving you more time to ride, less time measuring things out.
  • THROTTLE BODY: The TPI engine is fitted with a 39 mm throttle body made by Dell`Orto. The airflow is regulated by a butterfly connected with a twin-cable throttle cam, which is operated by the handlebar throttle assembly. A throttle position sensor provides airflow data to the control unit, while a bypass screw allows the regulation of the idle speed. The cold start device also opens a bypass supplying more air. Via an oil intake tube oil supplied from the oil pump is mixed with the incoming air to lubricate crankshaft bearings and cylinder / piston etc.

Ergonomics & Comfort

  • HANDLEBAR: KTM engineers sure know how to handle handlebars. This tapered one, made of high-strength aluminum by NEKEN, features a throttle assembly, which now has a twin-cable for EXC TPI models just like their 4-stroke brothers, with a new double-cable aluminum body and straightforward free-play adjustment. A volcanized grip sits on the right, while on the left side of the bar a comfortable ODI lock-on grip is mounted, which does not require any wire or glue to be fixed.
  • FOOTPEGS: Sophisticated ´No Dirt´ footpegs prevent jamming up the pegs, even when digging in deep ruts. The pegs on the Enduro models are 6mm higher than the ones used on SX models, which benefits ground clearance. But you can swap them at will.

Software & Electronics

  • BATTERY & WIRING HARNESS: A strong lithium ion battery breathes life into the engine and contributes to low vehicle weight. The lightweight battery and wiring harness are centralized in a compartment above the air filter box, allowing the mechanic to remove the subframe without removing the electronics. A happy mechanic is a good mechanic.
