KTM has announced that new two-stroke fuel-injected enduro models will be launched in 2018 as part of the EXC range.

It’s no secret that KTM’s research and development department in Mattighofen, Austria, has been developing this technology, which offers considerable benefits over carbureted models, including drastically reduced fuel consumption while also no longer having to pre-mix fuel or alter the machines’ jetting.

Not only that, the new two-stroke models offer a completely new experience in terms of power delivery and rideability, demonstrating KTM’s commitment to its off-road roots. Transfer Port Injection (TPI) is the name of the new two-stroke technology.

“This is an incredibly exciting development for KTM. We have been developing two-stroke fuel injection for some time and our goal was to create competitive motorcycles with all the benefits of fuel injection, while fitting into our ‘ready to race’ mantra,” said KTM’s Product Marketing Manager, Joachim Sauer.  “We are certainly looking forward to unveiling the new 2018 KTM 250 EXC TPI and KTM 300 EXC TPI machines in May. In Europe the bikes will arrive at the dealer floors in early summer, and in the U.S. and Canada, the new 2018 250 XC-W TPI will be available in very limited quantities in late fall.”

More information will be available in the spring. Visit www.ktm.com.
