Revised enduro range officially uncovered by KTM.

KTM has released complete information on its 2016 EXC range, which will undergo just minimal revisions for the new year while retaining all the features that have made the bikes so popular in its current platform.

The EXC models boast powerful and proven engines across the range, featuring fully-adjustable WP suspension, quick-change airfilters, lightweight polyethene fuel tanks and additional carryover highlights.

New cutting-edge graphics highlight the updates, as well as a Selle Dalla Valle seat cover, an annodised rear sprocket, a new Leonelli light switch, reduced front axle size (26mm to 22mm), new front fork featuring newly-designed fork boots with shorter off-set and updated setting optimally tuned to weight/engine, and updated fork guards are featured on the EXC models for 2016.

The 450 and 500 EXC models are undisputedly the most powerful enduro machines of their classes. Combining low weight and high displacement, high-tech SOHC (single overhead camshaft) four-stroke technology is the right choice for all riders that are looking for maximum performance, combined with playful handling for the E2 and E3 classes. These powerhouses are without a doubt the benchmarks in their classes.

A strong engine combined with flickable and agile chassis characteristics are at the base of yet another world title in the hands of Christophe Nambotin. The compact and powerful engine compliments the well-proven chassis, which ensures that the lively little four-stroke maintains its edge over the competition.

The 300 EXC has clearly proven what it can do in many off-road competitions. The combination of massive two-stroke performance, unrivalled torque and a super agile chassis make it the first choice when the going gets really difficult. There is no better power-to-weight ratio on the market in a standard bike. The compact two-stroke engine offers the strongest performance money can currently buy in the E3 class. A perfectly tuned exhaust control provides a manageable power delivery, while the six-speed gearbox, which has been specifically geared for enduro duty, has always the right gear ratio on offer. It’s the current world champion in the hands of Aussie ace Matthew Phillips.

An unbeatable power-to-weight ratio, low purchase and ownership costs as well as straightforward technology make the 250 EXC the prime choice for extremely heavy enduro duty. The cutting-edge engine is started effortlessly via an electric starter and has been considered the most successful two-stroke power plant on the market. Best-in-class enduro performance combined with a perfectly geared six-speed transmission and DDS clutch make this engine the absolute top dog of its segment.

The 200 EXC is equipped with an electric starter for easy and reliable engine starting. Combined with its optimum rideability, the 200 EXC is user-friendly and fun. This makes it the first choice for all who are looking for perfect handling, first-rate comfort and plenty of power outside the competitive class society and who rate riding fun, easy rideability along with reasonable costs above all else.
