2023 KTM 250 XC-W Highlights

  • NEW graphic design and white, purple and orange color scheme come together to pay homage to the early ‘90s enduro models. An orange frame sets the graphics off and echoes KTM factory machines.  
  • NEW Dunlop MX33 front tire pairs perfectly with the Dunlop AT81 rear for offroad domination.  
  • WP XPLOR forks provide next-level control and comfort and are fully adjustable for terrain and rider preference.      
  • WP XPLOR rear shock with PDS (Progressive Damping System) technology offers lower maintenance with fewer moving parts and provides more ground clearance.
  • Super lightweight Galfer Wave rotors, CNC machined hubs and high-end Giant rims provide excellent performance while reducing unsprung weight. 
  • 249 cc 2-stroke engine with a 6-speed wide ratio transmission is fitted with a patented TPI fuel injection system for perfect fueling at any altitude, no premixing and reduced fuel consumption while still living up to the standard of a KTM 2-stroke.
  • EMS featuring an ECU controlling ignition timing and fuel spray based on information from sensors reading intake air pressure, throttle position, water temperature and ambient air pressure from an additional sensor for efficient altitude compensation.  
  • Optional map select switch allows the rider to select an alternate map, providing a sportier power delivery.
  • Electronic oil pump feeds oil from the 700 cc oil tank to the intake to ensure a perfect fuel-oil mix under any condition while reducing smoking by 50% and providing up to 5 tanks of fuel. 
  • Exhaust system provides improved performance with reduced weight and a more durable construction thanks to the innovative corrugated surface on the expansion chamber.
  • High-tech, lightweight chrome-moly steel frame with carefully calculated flex parameters provides a great blend of comfort, stability and precision.
  • Single-piece cast aluminum swingarm is manufactured using a gravity die-cast production process, offering exceptional strength at the lowest possible weight.
  • Hydraulic Brembo clutch system offers highly controllable modulation of the clutch and light operation, minimizing fatigue on demanding rides.
  • High-tech Brembo brakes have always been standard equipment on KTM offroad machines and are combined with lightweight Wave discs to offer incredible braking power and feel.
