Engine

The new 300cc 2-stroke powerplant not only brings a new choice into the E3 Enduro category, but remains the idea choice for Enduro riders wanting maximum power and torque at the least possible weight. Another reason why the KTM 300 EXC engine sets the benchmark in the competitive Enduro E3 class and in hard enduro races all over the world.

Throttle Body Injection

​Forget TPI, the ​2024 KTM ​2-stroke ​Enduro models ​feature​ all-new electronically​-controlled Throttle Body Injection​ - or TBI. The ECU​​, together with ​a new Keihin​ ​39mm throttle body​,​calculates​ the ​ideal air-fuel mixture by constantly analyzing water temperature, air temperature, ambient pressure, ​and ​pressure within the crankcase, ​the ​rpm, and the throttle position​ to ensure the smoothest and most consistent power delivery​ in the most gnarly of ​enduro conditions.

Offroad Control Unit

An all-new Offroad Control Unit - or OCU - under the seat replaces all the electronic fuses and relays. All outputs are switched depending on signals from the voltage regulator and the ECU continuously. In the event of over-current, outputs are deactivated individually. This makes for easy error detection as the status of each output is indicated by a red or green LED light. This means diagnosing an electrical issue out on the trail is as easy as lifting the seat, and there's no more need to carry fiddly fuses.

Frame

Specifically engineered for longitudinal rigidity, the KTM 300 EXC HARDENDURO is engineered around an all-new gloss-orange powder-coated frame providing exceptional rider feedback, energy absorption, and high-speed stability. This has been achieved by repositioning the rotating masses in the frame and the inclusion of a forged steering head connection. The footrest mounts have also moved inwards, slimming things down for less risk of hooking up when tackling narrow single tracks, or charging through rock gardens. And when the ride comes to an end, a completely redesigned forged one-piece side stand ensures your enduro weapon stands proud. All-new orange and black factory frame protectors and a composite skid plate completes the package.

Subframe

A new ultra-light lightweight subframe takes charge at the rear of the main frame, featuring a 2-part polyamide and reinforced aluminum construction. With the help of computational dynamics, a specific rigidity was engineered into the subframe, to deliver outstanding handling and rider feedback. The new subframe is also shorter, more compact, and more robust than the previous generation, with the ability to bend and flex in the event of a crash, rather than break. The subframe fully integrates the electronic components, without any extra need for brackets, holders, or unnecessary fixtures.

Energy Absorbtion

Besides the expertly crafted, hydro-formed, laser-cut, and robot-welded frame being engineered to provide exceptional rider feedback and straight-line stability, a number of components mean the frame acts as a "shock absorber" making for a less harsh ride, resulting in less rider fatigue over many hard laps. A new shock mounting, no longer connected to the main tube, significantly improves the anti-squat of the chassis. In contrast, a new, service-friendly one-piece steering head seal provides improved reliability. The closed-head tube design also provides a new routing for the fuel overflow. And lastly, a new forged one-piece side stand means no more sinking feelings when parking up.
