2013 KTM Motorcycles
With an adage as powerful as “Ready to Race,” KTM must constantly revamp its current lineup to stay ahead of the competition.
And the Austrian company did just that for 2013, revamping its famed off-road lineup of motocross, enduro and sport minicycle motorcycles.
KTM recently unveiled its 2013 off-road motorcycles (26 models) at a presentation in Italy.
At the presentation were Pit Beirer, KTM’s head of Motorsport, and Stefan Pierer, CEO KTM Sportmotorcycle AG, who offered comment on the 2013 off-road lineup. “What KTM has accomplished thanks to the tireless efforts of the technicians and the racers is unique. All of the KTM company is based on this strong foundation. To do justice in its roll as ‘number one,’ it has been full throttle in every way for KTM to achieve what it has for this latest model year.”
Following is some brief info on the 2013 KTM off-road lineup from the manufacturer; stay clicked to UltimateMotorCycling.com for previews of each individual machine.
2013 KTM Motocross Models:
In shorthand: a completely new 450 SX-F with SOHC fuel injection engine, the most powerful MX1 bike that profits from the success of the Ryan Dungey-DeCoster Supercross collaboration.
A completely updated 350 SX-F with refined MX1 win concept. Increased engine performance and chassis refinement make KTM 350 rider and World Champion Toni Cairoli even better. The world class 250 SX-F with new engine to further increase the lead in MX2 – already tested by Roczen, Musquin, Herlings and Co. Three two-stroke models for every rider profile round off the KTM SX family to perfection.
2013 KTM Enduro Models:
The KTM Development Center has advanced the range of Enduro bikes without compromise for 2013. All existing models have received intensive and detailed improvements in all of the important areas. The intention: to offer all EXC four- and twostroke riders a better Enduro combination of riding fun, performance, responsiveness and durability.
2012 KTM Big Mini Models:
KTM wouldn’t be KTM if the KTM Offroad Team had not included the three Minicycle models with 50, 65 und 85 cc into its development activities. This serious approach is best underscored by the almost completely new 85 SX that presents the up-and-coming junior MX racer with a clear vision of the world of professional competition.
Thanks to its enormous wealth of experience and an optimal development structure, KTM has further expanded the range of its very own performance-enhancing PowerParts range in 2013, and also its clothing and accessories.
