KTM Announces New Fuel-Injected 2-Stroke Enduro Bikes
KTM's revolutionary fuel-injected 2-stroke technology coming this summer.
The Austrian manufacturer is well-known for its revolutionary advancements in technology and now the game-changer is finally here with fuel-injected 2-stroke Enduro models being launched as part of the 2018 EXC range. With KTM’s unwavering commitment to being at the very forefront of off-road motorcycle sport, in which the orange brand has achieved many championship wins over the years, the latest, exciting development in technology has come to fruition.
It has been no secret that KTM’s Research and Development department in Mattighofen, Austria has been developing fuel-injected 2-stroke technology, which offers considerable benefits over carbureted models including drastically reduced fuel consumption while also no-longer having the need to pre-mix fuel or alter a machines’ jetting. What’s more, the new fuel-injected 2-stroke models offer a completely new experience in terms of power delivery and rideability. As market leaders in this segment, KTM believes the new fuel-injected 2-stroke technology, known as TPI (Transfer Port Injection), is revolutionary. More information will be available during the international media launch, which begins on May 15, 2017.
Joachim Sauer, KTM Product Marketing Manager: “This is an incredibly exciting development for KTM. We have been developing 2-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. There has been extensive testing and considerations for our Research and Development team to take into account during this process, so we are very motivated by this next step and world-first in technology, as we take a major step forward in this segment. 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.”
