The perfect combination of a 125's playful handling with impressive engine power very close to a 250. Equipped with an electric starter for the current model year, the 200 XC-W now receives a significantly stronger starter motor for improved starting reliability. Combined with its optimum rideability thanks to a new cylinder head and carb jetting, the 200 XC-W has become more userfriendly than ever. This makes it the first choice for all who are looking for perfect handling, first-rate comfort and plenty of power outside the competitive class society and who rate riding fun and reasonable costs above all else.
Features May Include:ELECTRIC STARTER
New significantly stronger electric starter (480 W instead of 370 W) provides even more reliable starting.OPTIMIZED ENGINE
The engine has a redesigned reed valve housing featuring Boyesen high-performance reeds. This has improved performance and responsiveness. The ignition curve and cylinder head have been optimized and the carburetor setting adjusted to make the 200 XC-W a great ride.CYLINDER HEAD
New cylinder head with optimized combustion chamber offers more efficient combustion, better response especially under partial load, better power delivery and optimized rideability.FRAME
The modern and lightweight frame design made of high-strength chromoly steel sections combines maximum longitudinal stiffness with optimum torsional ridgy. It guarantees easy handling and precise cornering, but also outstanding stability.SWINGARM
Designed using the latest in calculation and simulation software, the design and wall thickness of the cast aluminum swingarm have been optimized for minimum weight at optimum stiffness and precisely defined flexibility. For 2014, the engineers have revised the chain guide to increase reliability while lowering the weight.SUPERIOR SUSPENSION SETTINGS
The first rate WP Suspension elements have been further improved for 2014. Specially designed for enduro riding and in some models with an optimized tuning, they ensure maximum traction and plenty of comforts. Of course, compression and rebound damping can be adjusted to the track conditions and the rider's preferences with a twist of the wrist - the rear monoshock has separate high and low speed adjustments.TELESCOPIC FORK
The latest generation of fully adjustable 48mm open-cartridge forks "Made in Austria" by WP Suspension delivers the highest level of responsiveness with even more constant damping characteristics.BODYWORK
Shrouds, air box cover, front fender, headlight fairing and the headlight have all been restyled for 2014. The KTM designer's focus was to achieve complete ergonomic harmony between rider and bike for a more stable ride and effortless movement on the bike. Adding to the improvements is a high-quality seat foam core to maximize comfort and durability. With the new front fender, the designers omitted ribbing on the inside to reduce mud and dirt buildup while increasing rigidity over the previous component by 50%.BRAKES
High-Tech Brembo brakes have always been standard equipment on KTM offroad bikes, and combined with the lightweight Wave discs, they are the ultimate solution in braking technology. In 2014 the XC-W models gain a new master cylinder with a new reservoir, a smaller piston diameter and a new lever with optimized kinematics. Combined with new sinter brake pads (Toyo B169), this makes for another perceptible improvement of front brake performance and action.
