The KTM 300 XC-W TPI has been at the forefront of the insane pace of development of the highest levels the sport of Extreme Enduro. This nimble, lightweight all-terrain master fears no obstacle and with the advent of TPI technology, has risen to ridiculous new heights. The refined bodywork and ergonomics make moving around a bliss, while the frame allows the rider to select a line with instant precision. An innovative and strong 3D stamped exhaust, as well as the impressive cooling and suspension, all help to make the new KTM 300 EXC TPI ready for the most extreme enduro challenges.
The 300 cc 2-stroke engine is known and respected for offering the most powerful 2-stroke performance in its segment. Thanks to state-of-the-art engineering, innovative 2-stroke design and revolutionary TPI fuel injection technology, the powerplant is more refined than ever before. The compact and ligthweight 2-stroke is a great choice for all Enduro riders searching for easy-to-ride Enduro performance with the power and torque to conquer the most extreme climbs.
All XC-W models feature new high-tech, lightweight chromoly steel frames. This includes hydro-formed elements produced by state-of-the-art robot welding. They retain their race-proven geometries, but by re-designing certain areas, the stiffness has been optimized, resulting in better feedback for the rider, playful handling and inproved stability. The laterally attached engine head stays (the connection between cylinder, head and frame) are now made of aluminum, reducing vibration and futher contributing to precise cornering. The bikes also feature newly designed lateral frame guards with a structured surface, improving grip, while also serving as a heat protector against the muffler on the right side. On the KTM 300 XC-W TPI frame, the engine is lowered by 1 degree around the swing arm pivot improving front wheel traction significantly. The subframe is made of extra-light and stable aluminum profiles, weighing less than 900g and is 40 mm longer than before, providing better rear fender stability.
All KTM XC-W models are equipped with the same high-strength aluminum tapered handlebar, made by NEKEN. The handlebar allows for four different positions. The handlbars come standard with an ODI vulcanized grip on the right side and a comfortable ODI lock-on grip, which does not require any wire or glue, on the left. Additionally, all models can be euqipped with an optional handlebar map select switch, which allows to select between a standard and advanced power curve.

BATTERY & WIRING HARNESS
All engines are fitted with the proven electric starter, which is a major benefit for any offroad activity. It is powereed by a super lightweight 2 ah lithium-ion starter battery which provides safe, reliable starting. A reworked wiring harness and revised packaging has most of the electrical components concentrated into a common area below the seat, making them more accessible and reliable.
