The KTM 300 XC‑W is renowned for its massive 2-stroke performance and torque. The revolutionary KTM DDS clutch feels fantastically light and smooth. This machine is equipped with the same technical features as its 250cc brother. Its tried and tested chassis is tailor-made for extremely tough tracks. It carries on where others climb off.
The redesigned airbox on the 2013 300 XC‑W allows maximum air to pass through, but minimal dust and spray. Replacement of the Twin-Air filter takes approx. 15 seconds, without any tools. Absolutely "READY TO RACE".
KTM 2-stroke technology is updated and refined year after year. The newly developed cylinder head delivers smooth and responsive power. At the same time, new jets tuned to the modified cylinder head ensure better rideability. Power-Valve exhaust control, 6-speed transmission and electric starter are a tried and tested KTM standard for 250/300 cm³ (250/300 cu in). From MY 2013, for the KTM 300 XC-W as well!
The KTM 300 XC‑W is equipped with both kick and electric-starters in 2013. This simplifies starting the bike in all situations. With its patented placement in a longitudinal direction above the ignition, the compact starter system is optimally protected and provides a decisive advantage in hard offroad use.
By opening and closing a plug connection, the choice can be made in 2013 between the standard ignition curve and a softer version. Those who prefer even greater convenience can buy a switch for the KTM 300 XC‑W from the PowerParts range.
Plenty of power from the bottom up and controllable rideability throughout the rev range. The response of the exhaust control system can be individually tuned by means of different springs. This way, everyone can very easily vary the power development of their XC-W (also combinable with the two ignition curves) between "soft" and "aggressive" in a matter of seconds. And the new reed valve block on the 2013 300 XC‑W delivers perceptibly better acceleration and more homogeneous power development.
The KTM 300 XC‑W has its own individual suspension setting in MY 2013, optimally tuned to weight and engine. At the rear, a PDS shock absorber from WP Suspension works with a direct linkage to the upper side of the swingarm. The wide range of setting options for rebound damping and high- and low-speed compression damping are standard on KTM bikes.
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.
The 300 XC‑W model has bodywork with extremely slim ergonomics and excellent contact points between rider and machine. It provides unlimited freedom of movement. Newly styled graphics give the models a fresher appearance in 2013.
Tapered, extremely stable aluminum handlebars from Neken are standard equipment on the 2013 enduro bikes. For the 2013 model year, new 2-component grips with KTM logo deliver excellent feeling and improved grip.
