2020 KTM 250 XC-W TPI

Chaparral Motorsports
May 20, 2019

The new generation KTM 250 XC-W TPI is the ultimate combination of power and rideability. It has been completely reworked for 2020, featuring a new frame with optimized flex characteristics, a new innovative 3D stamped exhaust offering improved impact resistance and reduced noise levels and updated premium WP suspension for unmatched performance in extreme terrain. Setting a clear benchmark for intuitive handling, unique style and top performance thanks to its innovative TPI (transfer port injection) system, this updated machine clearly demonstrates KTM's unrelenting commitment to 2-stroke development. Excellent fuel efficiency, clean exhaust emissions and the benefit of not having to play with jetting out on the trail make TPI technology a rider favorite, and with new mapping and an additional ambient air pressure sensor to improve altitude compensation, the updated KTM 250 XC-W TPI continues to reach new heights in offroad competition.
