The KTM EXC 2016 range has been launched and is currently arriving in KTM dealers in selected countries.
With KTM’s expertise in offroad the manufacturer presents once again its super-successful and extensive Enduro range for 2016. This includes 2-stroke and 4-stroke models that offer class-leading performance with high-end serial equipment, and some detail refinements over last year’s models.
Thanks to the continued work developing these world-dominating machines, the KTM R&D and Motorsports department in Mattighofen, Austria have enjoyed further wins in the Enduro World Championship while claiming the overall E1 and E3 world titles with Christophe Nambotin and Matthew Phillips last year. Not only that, numerous Extreme Enduro event wins were achieved and a number of national titles, with the list being extended once again this year.
Engine & Chassis
The KTM EXC line-up includes the 4-stroke 250 EXC-F, 350 EXC-F, 450 EXC and 500 EXC, along with the 2-stroke models 125 EXC, 200 EXC, 250 EXC and ultra-powerful 300 EXC. The KTM EXC machines offer an electric starter as standard equipment on all models (except the 125 EXC) along with a modern, high-strength chromoly steel profile frame, which offers easy handling, precise cornering as well as outstanding stability.
The overall chassis design includes a number of high quality, premium parts and technology specifically designed for Enduro use. Each engine has been especially designed for purpose and maximum performance in the most challenging conditions.
For MY16 the range receives re-worked WP open cartridge forks with new fork boots and a smaller front axle. These refinements, comprised with new suspension settings, means each model can offer improved handling and better traction with a more precise feedback to the rider. The maintenance of the suspension is also easier thanks to a new design of fork guard, a brand new look across the entire range along with further detail changes.
The new KTM EXC 2016 models are arriving in KTM dealers in South Africa during first week of July. Please contact your local dealer for more information or visit the new KTM website.
