KTM 250/300 EXC XC-W Six Days
KTM AG (Kraftfahrzeug Trunkenpolz Mattighofen, previously KTM Sportmotorcycle AG) is an Austrian motorcycle, bicycle, and sports car manufacturer owned by Pierer Mobility AG and the Indian company Bajaj Auto International Holdings BV. It was founded in 1992, although its roots may be traced back to 1934. KTM AG is now the parent company of the KTM Group, which includes a variety of motorcycle brands.
KTM bikes are well-known for their off-road capabilities (enduro, motocross and supermoto). Since the late 1990s, it has moved into the manufacture of street motorcycles as well as the development of sports automobiles, especially the X-Bow. KTM sold nearly as many street bikes as off-road bikes in 2015.
KTM has been Europe’s largest motorcycle manufacturer for four years in a row, beginning in 2012. The firm is a global leader in the production of off-road motorcycles. KTM sold 203,423 motorcycles globally in 2016.
KTM 300 2008-2016
KTM’s 300 series is a line of 2-stroke enduro off-road bikes. They are the 1984 Penton-inspired 300 GS, the 300 DMX, the dirt-only 300 MXC, the European road-legal 300 EXC, and their contemporary US counterparts, the 300 XC (close-ratio) and 300 XC-W (wide-ratio gear box). The KTM 300 is built for tough off-road situations. The 300 EXC and 300 XC-W have a smaller headlamp, a speedometer, a taillight, and a somewhat softer linkless PDS suspension. Beginning in 2008, all 300s were equipped with an electronic start. Since the early 2000s, KTM has offered a unique “Six-Days” limited edition of the XC-W model.
The 2008 KTM 300 EXC is a major manufacturer’s first electric start two-stroke enduro bike. PDS rear suspension is standard on all versions.
Husaberg, the second KTM-owned bike brand, released the TE300 in 2010, which was an XC-W with minimal bodywork and suspension changes.
Models received 6-speed transmissions, a redesigned exhaust pipe and silencer, and transparent gasoline tanks in 2011. The XC was also given a new frame while keeping the PDS rear suspension. These frame upgrades did not reach the XC-W until 2012. The Husaberg TE 300, which was offered from 2011 to 2012, was effectively a rebadged KTM 300.
In 2012 there were improvements to the starter motor bendix, more frame changes resulting in more wheel travel for models with PDS rear suspension (except the XC), and a new air box with a filter that can be replaced without the use of tools. The 300XC was changed from PDS rear suspension to linkage rear suspension. The 300XC-W models received the frame and bodywork updates that arrived in the XC line the year before, but also retain PDS rear suspension.
In 2013 the clutch was changed to a ‘DDS’ diaphragm spring clutch with lighter pull, a new stronger starter motor (350W motor was replaced with a 410W motor), lighter battery, and triple clamps changed from 22 mm to 20 mm offset.
The Husaberg TE300 was renamed the Husqvarna TE300 and gained rear suspension with linkage.
In 2014, the bikes received a new CDI unit and ignition curve, a larger/stronger battery, fresh jetting, updated brakes (front master cylinder, caliper, and pads), a redesigned cylinder head, new Boyesen reeds, firmer seat foam, and a new rear shock absorber with altered settings.
The chromoly steel frame of the 2015 edition is painted orange, same as the motocross versions. All 2015 versions include updated WP 4CS forks with altered damping (rebound in one fork and compression in the other) and the ability to make on-the-fly changes, as well as a smaller front axle. The offset of the triple clamps is 2 mm less, resulting in greater trail and altered steering characteristics. The rear shock is longer, but the travel remains the same. The electric starter features improved gearing to generate more starting torque from the electric motor, and the battery is lighter and stronger.
