2021 KTM 150 XC-W TPI
This nimble, lightweight, extreme terrain master proudly features the TPI (transfer port injection). This means that there is no need for re-jetting or mixing fuel, making this easy-to-shred thoroughbred even simpler to ride and work on while delivering excellent fuel efficiency and clean exhaust emissions. Recognized for its supreme agility, the KTM 150 XC-W TPI benefits from a lightweight frame with class-leading flex characteristics that helps elevate rider and machine to incredible new levels of competence.
Thanks to state-of-the-art engineering, innovative 2-stroke design and revolutionary TPI fuel injection technology, the 150 cc 2-stroke powerplant is more refined than ever before, delivering class-leading power throughout the entire rev range. The benefit to this compact, lightweight 2-stroke, is reflected in the highly effective power delivery and easy rideability, making it a great option for those looking to delve into more extreme action.
All XC-W models feature new high-tech, lightweight chromoly steel frames. This includes hydro-formed elements produced by state-of-the-art robot welding. They retain their race-proven geometries, but by redesigning certain areas they now have a higher lateral, longitudinal and torsinal stiffness, resulting in better feedback for the rider, playful handling and improved stability. The laterally attched engine head stays (the connection between cylinder, head and frame) are now made of aluminum, reducing vibration and further contributing to precise cornering. The bikes also feature newly designed lateral frame guards with a structured surface, improving grip, while also serving as a heat protector against the muffler on the right side. The subframe is made of extra-light and stable aluminum profiles, weighing less than 2 lbs (900 gr) and is 40 mm longer than before, providing better rear fender stability.
All KTM XC-W models are equipped with the same high-strength aluminum tapered handlebar, made by NEKEN. The handlebar allows for four different positions. The handlebars come standard with an ODI vulcanized grip on the right side and a comfortable ODI lock-on grip, which does not require any wire or glue, on the left. Additionally, all models can be equipped with an optional handlbar map select switch, which allows to select between a standard and advanced power curve.
The durable in-mold graphics convey the READY TO RACE character of the KTM XC-W model line.
BATTERY & WIRING HARNESS
All engines are fitted with the proven electric starter, which is a major benefit for any offroad activity. It is powered by a super lightweight 2 ah lithium-ion starter battery which provides safe, reliable starting. A reworked wiring harness and revised packaging has most of the electrical components concentrated into a common area below the seat, making them more accessible and reliable.
