After bringing a handful of exceptional, enduro-oriented machines to market each year, KTM has once again set the bar for the motorcycling industry in terms of power, performance, and innovation. The Austrian manufacturer recently unveiled its plans for the anticipated 2020 EXC line — outfitting a wide range of two-stroke (and four-stroke) platforms with the company’s upgraded architecture.
Standing atop the podium of the enduro world isn’t a new experience for the brand, and with the introduction of seven new variants for the upcoming season, it seems that KTM’s outdoor division won’t give up the crown so easily. The company’s powerful two-stroke offerings will be bolstered with the addition of two new bikes — the KTM 250 EXC TPI and KTM 300 EXC TPI — outstanding machines that have found their stride with the addition of more efficient engine capabilities, a re-developed chassis, and improved handling thanks to the implementation of the company’s WP XPLOR suspension system. Alongside these two-wheeled rompers, the company has announced a handful of four-stroke upgrades, including the KTM 250 EXC-F, KTM 350 EXC-F, KTM 450 EXC-F and KTM 500 EXC-F — all of which boast the same upgrades we’ve referenced above. Aside from the inclusion of these beneficial improvements, NEKEN handlebars, Brembo brakes, No-Dirt footpegs, CNC milled hubs, and revised cooling/exhaust systems will also find their way onto the new bikes this June — proving, once again, that KTM is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to hardcore enduro.
