Take the unrelenting ferocity of an SX bike, add a few extra horsepower and torque, a longer-range fuel tank and an 18" rear wheel to accommodate more rubber, and you're well-armed to dominate the dirt. In a nutshell, the KTM 300 XC TPI is arguably the most accomplished cross-country racer available and now proudly adds TPI to its name and further demonstrates KTM's unrelenting commitment to 2-stroke advancement.
The engine of the KTM 300 XC TPI has been known and respected for being the most powerful 2-stroke engine in its class. 2-strokes really do have a future at KTM. Thanks to state-of-the-art engineering, innovative 2-stroke design, a newly developed cylinder and revolutionary TPI fuel injection technology, the new powerplant is more refined than ever before, delivering class-leading power throughout the entire rev range. The benefit of the updates to this compact, lightweight 2-stroke, is reflected in the highly effective power delivery and easy rideability. Oh, and of course don't forget that 2-stroke snarl.
The KTM 300 XC TPI has a lightweight, high-tech steel frame. It plays an integral role in the bike's renowned maneuverability, while also providing accurate rider feedback. Its refined flex characteristics ensure the bike soaks up those big hits while still delivering excellent agility and high-speed stability. The chassis also features additional innovative elements like "no dirt" footpegs. For 2020, the suspension features improved damping characteristics. The reworked settings offer a slightly softer, more comfortable feel that, together with the dynamic, performance-oriented chassis, contribute to an intuitive, high-performance ride like no other.
In order to tame the KTM 300 XC TPI, riders need to be able to move freely. Perfect ergonomics and contact points provide maximum comfort in movement and ensures that the same READY TO RACE ergonomics of previous years have been retained for 2020.
KTM R&D, KISKA Design and all our factory riders had their say in shaping the plastics with one goal: complete harmony between rider and bike. Perfect ergonomics and contact points provide maximum comfort in movement on the XC TPI. The I-beam structures of the front and rear fenders guarantee maximum stability and a low weight thanks to well thought-out construction and mounting. They also stay cleaner for longer.
Boasting a newly developed control unit with an all-new wiring harness and several individual sensors, the new KTM XC-W TPI models feature the most modern engine management system of any 2-stroke off-road motorcycle. Utilizing various sensor data such as intake and ambient air pressure, throttle valve position, water temperature, and an electronically controlled oil pump, the control unit works tirelessly to optimize ignition timing and fuel injection for perfectly smooth power delivery.
