2022 KTM XC-W TPI Lineup First Look (Three 2-Strokes)

2022 KTM 250 XC-W TPI

The 2022 KTM XC-W TPI lineup is here, with three two-strokes available for your enduro and cross-country racing pleasure.

The three XC-Ws—300, 250, and 150—share the same chassis. The 2022 KTM 300 XC-W TPI and 250 XC-W TPI share the same basic motor, with the 250 having a bore that is 5.6mm narrower than the 300.

All three two-stroke motors have EFI into the rear transfer ports, along with electric starting and oil injection (no premix needed). As you likely know, the W means the Pankl Racing Systems transmission has wide ratios.

Changes for 2022 to the XC-W TPI lineup include firmer suspension settings for the WP Xplor units (the shock remains linkage-free) and improved damping hardware.

In the front, you’ll find lower friction outer fork tubes, a polished spring (less oil fouling), and a new upper cartridge screw connection for better rebound damping.

The progressive-damping shock gets an improved O-ring that is more resistant to deforming, wear, and fading during use. The 2022 KTM 250 XC-W TPI has lower final gearing for better low-speed performance.

As you can see, the graphics on all three 2022 XC-W TPIs are new.
