Extends technology to two-stroke or KTM
During the presentation of the enduro motorcycles of the KTM for 2018 – in the summer of 2017 – in Austria, the company’s two-stroke sprinkles with TPI (Transfer Port Injection) technology had a special feeling. The reason, then, of all of them was whether and when that technology was going to be in the range of motocross (KTM and Husqvarna of course) and whether we would see something similar to the 125cc and 150cc smaller ones .
The guru of the R & D department of KTM, Barny Plazotta, he then said clearly that the company was aiming to successfully introduce the new technology first into the endure of 250 and 300cc and then to develop it for the smaller cubes. He also said that due to the transition from carburettors to sprays, it would become more and more unlikely for companies to build small carburetors , which is also supported by the pressing climate in the US. (which is the largest market for the KTM) to abolish carburetor feed due to environmental regulations.
Then, of course, Plazotta’s shot was at four-year-long, but as things show, the timing is much shorter. Until recently, there were rumors about an EXC 150 TPI, which had been identified to test and would be included in the 2020 range of the KTM enduro. Now the rumors are confirmed and we are talking about the fact as the bike will be among those that will be leading towards the end of the spring, in the presentation of the 2020 earthquake .
Stay tuned for the first driving impressions, a model that is supposed to break a brilliant shopping mall, given the sales of the largest 250/300 across Europe.
