KTM 2 stroke – KTM is one of the few manufacturers who are still betting on 2-stroke engines in some of their most successful models in the MX segment and Enduro like the EXC 300/250 or the SX 250/125 range. Far from abandoning this concept of engine, the Austrian brand has just announced something historic: the launch of its new two-stroke electronic injection engine, a TPI (Transfer Port Injection) engine that will be mounted on the EXC 250 TPI and EXC 300 TPI.
According to KTM, this technology offers considerable advantages over conventional carburation models, including a drastic reduction in fuel consumption, as well as avoiding the need to pre-mix oil or having to modify carburizing settings.
“This is an incredible and exciting technological advance by KTM” explains Joachim Sauer, head of KTM’s Product and Marketing division. “We have long been developing fuel injection for 2T motorcycles, and our goal was to create competitive motorcycles that would reap the benefits of fuel injection, but would remain true to our motto, READY TO RACE.”
The Research and Development Department located in Mattighofen, Austria, “has been carrying out numerous tests and considering many aspects throughout this process, so we are very motivated with what it represents with this technological first in the world, with which We take a big step forward in this segment, “adds Sauer.
The new KTM 250 EXC TPI and KTM 300 EXC TPI 2018 will be presented next May, although they will not reach the official KTM European Dealers until early summer. In the USA. And Canada, the new KTM 250 XC-W TPI will be available in very limited quantities in late fall.
