One for all and all for one. KTM shows itself to be prepared in the best possible way for offroad sporting activity. The starting gun has gone off at the production line in Mattighofen for the latest range of high-class Motocross, Enduro and Sport Minicyles.
The Austrian market leader in its most important segment launches the 2013 range of bikes with no less than 26 models. Above all, there is a completely new generation of Motocross bikes that are directly derived in the best possible tradition from the most successful MX teams in the world.
In shorthand: a completely new KTM 450 SX-F with SOHC fuel injection engine, the most powerful MX1 bike that profits from the success of the Ryan Dungey-DeCoster Supercross collaboration.
A completely updated KTM 350 SX-F with refined MX1 win concept. Increased engine performance and chassis refinement make KTM 350 rider and World Champion Toni Cairoli even better.
The world class KTM 250 SX-F with new engine to further increase the lead in MX2 – already tested by Roczen, Musquin, Herlings and Co. Three two-stroke models for every rider profile round off the KTM SX family to perfection.
The KTM Development Center has advanced the range of Enduro bikes without compromise for 2013. All existing models have received intensive and detailed improvements in all of the important areas. The intention: to offer all EXC four- and two-stroke riders a better Enduro combination of riding fun, performance, responsiveness and durability.
KTM wouldn’t be KTM if the KTM Offroad Team had not included the three Minicycle models with 50, 65 and 85 cc into its development activities. This serious approach is best underscored by the almost completely new KTM 85 SX that presents the up-and-coming junior MX racer with a clear vision of the world of professional competition.
While in Italy for the presentation together with Pit Beirer, KTM’s head of Motorsport, Stefan Pierer, CEO KTM Sportmotorcycle AG, underlined the importance of the new Offroad generation. “What KTM has accomplished thanks to the tireless efforts of the technicians and the racers is unique. All of the KTM company is based on this strong foundation. To do justice in its roll as “number one”, it has been full throttle in every way for KTM to achieve what it has for this latest model year.”
Another tradition continues in the Model Year 2013 in the form of the popular “Six Days”. Equipped with the finest extras, such as a completely newly developed WP closed cartridge fork with an innovative 4-chamber damping system, the Six Days models are available in seven different motor variants (125 EXC, 250 EXC, 300 EXC, 250 EXC-F, 350 EXC-F, 450 EXC and 500 EXC) and come in the German national colours.
Thanks to its enormous wealth of experience and an optimal development structure it has been possible for KTM to further expand the range of its very own performance-enhancing PowerParts range in 2013. And let’s not forget the unique choice of matching quality clothing and accessories.
