KTM to release two-stroke fuel injection bikes in 2018

KTM just announced that they will be opting for a more emissions-friendly approach by stating that fuel-injection technology is ready for two-strokes. The new 2018 250EXC and 300EXC bikes will come equipped with it. There is yet to be any statements regarding the impact upon the 250SX two-stroke motocross bike. The new Transfer Port Injection (TPI) eliminates the need for pre-mixing of gas and oil altogether and also reduces emissions and fuel consumption.

“This is an incredibly exciting development for KTM. We have been developing 2-stroke fuel injection for some time, and our goal was to create competitive motorcycles with all the benefits of fuel injection, while fitting into our READY TO RACE mantra. There has been extensive testing and considerations for our Research and Development team to take into account during this process, so we are very motivated by this next step and world first in technology, as we take a major step forward in this segment. We are certainly looking forward to unveiling the new 2018 KTM 250 EXC TPI and KTM 300 EXC TPI machines in May. In Europe the bikes will arrive at the dealer floors in early summer. In the USA and Canada, the new 2018 KTM 250 XC-W TPI will be available in very limited quantities in late fall,” said Joachim Sauer, KTM Product Marketing Manager.
