2013 KTM 250 XC: UNBEATABLE POWER-TO-WEIGHT RATIOVolver a la moto Siguiente Anterior
The modern frame design of lightweight, high-strength, chromoly steel section tubes guarantees an ideal mix of longitudinal and torsional stiffness, resulting not only in easy handling and precise steering behavior, but also in excellent ride stability. The engine braces to the cylinder head have also been optimized, along with their attachment to the frame. The frames have a new color for the 2013 model year and they are still the benchmark in terms of weight and stability.
The further improved 48 mm (1.89 in) upside-down fork featuring closed-cartridge technology has been optimized with completely revamped US XC specific settings for perfect harmony with the new frame and engine. The new oil is significantly more wear-resistant and guarantees more consistent damping throughout both the course of a race and the bike's life cycle. A new lower triple clamp is 80 g (2.82 oz) lighter and, just like the upper triple clamp, CNC-machined from high-quality aluminum, whereby the steering characteristics, and hence, the responsiveness of the fork have been noticeably improved.
