Info

2014 KTM 250 XC-W

2-STROKE

An unbeatable power-to-weight ratio, low purchase and ownership costs as well as straightforward technology make the 250 XC-W the prime choice for extreme enduro racing. The cutting-edge engine is started effortlessly via electric starter and has been considered the most successful 2-stroke power plant on the market. Best-in-class enduro performance, a newly developed intake feed valve, the perfectly geared 6-speed transmission and enhanced DDS clutch make this engine the absolute top dog of its segment.

Features May Include:
  • BATTERY
  • The 250 and 300 XC-W models receive a stronger battery (4 Ah instead of 3 Ah) for 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 250 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 ridigty. 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 comfort. 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.

  • TRIPLE CLAMPS
  • The lower triple clamp has been redesigned for optimum accomodation of the new front fender. Thanks to its new contour and mounting with two front and two bottom bolts, the new fender has a lot more stability.

  • BODYWORK
  • Shrouds, airbox 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%.

  • WHEELS
  • High-quality, CNC-machined hubs are standard on all KTM wheels. The now black coated spokes increase corrosion resistance and center the new, extremely stable, 7050 aluminum rims from GIANT. Dunlop GEOMAX MX51 tires - provide excellent traction, very precise directional control and a long service life.

  • 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.
