The new 2013 KTM Enduros will be available from June on. All models have been modified moderately. The most important changes in brief.
Engine cases of the 450/500 EXC four-stroke-models are now produced in die-cast instead of sand-cast. Which results in thinner walls, reduced weight and a better finish of the surface. The new cases consist of a new high-strength alloy material which features more ductility and protection against damage.
In the interior balancer shafts have also been weight optimised as the reworked electric starter system.
The clutch package of the DDS clutch (Damped Diaphragm Steel) has been improved for better modulation.
Also the two-stroke technology is further developed for model year 2013. Most work has been done to the beginner-friendly 200 EXC. Power valves, six-speed transmissions and electric starters as for 250/300cc, now also for the 200 EXC are standard. The new design of the cylinder head shall provide smoother power delivery.
The 300 EXC’s clutch features the same improvements as the big four stroke models.
Equipped with lots of exclusive components the 6Days models are a tribute to world’s most famous enduro race – the ISDE Sixdays. All models are fitted with the newly developed 4CS Closed Cartridge front forks made by WP Suspension. This technology with the patented Four-Chamber-System (4CS) provides more constant damping characteristics and also adjustable end-progression compared to the open cartridge and shows its performance best on rough and bumpy terrain. The new hand click adjuster system for rebound (right) and compression (left) damping are now both accessible on top of the fork.
