KTM 2020 Enduro bikes – All new, all good!
KTM 2020 ENDURO BIKES – ALL NEW, ALL GOOD!
The KTM 2020 Enduro machines were revealed to a waiting world at the launch in Spain this week. With the changes to the motocross bikes happening last year, the new enduro models got the full treatment for 2020 with a raft of changes across the entire bike. If you’ve heard the phrase ‘Trigger’s Broom’ then this is a case in point with almost all of the bike getting redeveloped, changed, updated or simply replaced with better.
THE NEW LINE UP
The 2020 line-up includes the new model KTM 150 EXC TPI, which is homologated for Euro 4, the KTM 250 EXC TPI and KTM 300 EXC TPI 2-strokes, as well as the KTM 250 EXC-F, KTM 350 EXC-F, KTM 450 EXC-F and KTM 500 EXC-F 4-strokes.
If you want to ride enduro or just trail ride, that’s a pretty good range to choose from!
So what are the changes on the 2020 machines?
Well according to KTM, the new enduro bikes have more efficient yet high-performing engines teamed to a re-developed chassis with redesigned WP XPLOR suspension with gives improved handling.
But that’s not all – there’s new bodywork, a new air filter box, new cooling systems, and new exhaust systems across the range. There’s NEKEN handlebar, Brembo brakes front and rear, KTM’s No-Dirt footpegs, and CNC milled hubs with Giant rims fitted as standard equipment – it’s a great package all round,
THE SPECIAL EDITIONS
As usual, the Six Day models will be the most sought after, with a raft of KTM Power Parts adorning the bikes that are this year decked out in the Portuguese colours to reflect the location of the 2019 ISDE event.
But for the 2010 model year, the KTM have upped the ante with a limited run of Erzberg Rodeo inspired bikes. Just 500 of the 300 EXC TPI machines will be produced to celebrate the 25th year of the gruelling event that starts from the vast open cast mine in Austria and has been inextricably linked with KTMs success in off-road competition. If you want one of these iconic special editions you’d better get an order in pretty quick!
