Last month’s end brought TDR Scooters the world record for a single cylinder 178 cc fully automatic twist and go scooter, at the Santa Pod Raceway (England), with an impressive 11.9037 at 108.27 mph for a quarter of a mile. Also, during that lucky day on May 30, the record was followed by an 11.9760 at 105.73 mph.

KTM offers an enduro two-stroke trainer under the 200 XC-W name that stands for an impressively build motorcycle, always happy to provide an extremely accurate impression of what smokers are capable nowadays.

While the engine can be compared with at least a 300 cc four-stroke one, the bike weighs only 208.99 pounds without fuel, standing out as a possible blast. So where does beginner friendliness stand in this scenario? That’s what we’re about to find out.

KTM ensures that their faithful riders master those trails by offering a very difersified off-road lineup from which the XC-W model range distinguishes as being the most offering. The variety of both four-stroke and two-stroke models will leave nobody hiking and if we’re talking about riders who are just starting out, the 250 XCF-W is just the right thing to consider.

KTM has a two-stroke enduro alternative for each of their four-stroke model, so while the 250 XC-W is comparable to their 450 XC-W , what’s the 530 XC-W left with? The 300 XC-W, of course!

The big four-strokes have been seriously improved this year and the much smaller two-strokes simply had to keep up. And to be quite honest, the premises are totally favorable.

We often find ourselves wondering which will be a manufacturer’s next strategic move, but as much as we’d think it over, we wouldn’t have come to the conclusion that the Austrians from KTM might turn their attention towards the versatile 400 XC-W for 2009. Yet they did so and with excellent results. Now, we’re about to see how, in some cases, this bike stands out as an alternative for the 450 XC-W and even the 530 XC-W .

KTM has worked to deliver their best enduro chassis ever and they try to point that out with two displacement alternatives of the revised, powerful and reliable XC4 engine that never missed a chance to stand out during off-road adventures around the world. It’s time for the 2009 KTM 450 XC-W and 530 XC-W to redefine their segment. Let’s see just how.

There has never been a better way to start mastering those trails than with the 2009 KTM 105 XC, an enduro ride characterized by lightness,enhanced agility, as well as by even more of the two-stroke power that made this bike unique in the first place. KTM engineers worked their magic on this new model year while designers made sure it will stand out wherever you ride.

Because we know that posts such as this one tend to disturb motorcycle girls simply because they know that all bikes are meant to be ridden and not just used as reason for taking damn sexy pictures, we decided to dedicate this one to all of you female riders out there in an attempt to even up the scales. Hope you’re happy!

KTM sees a gap in between 125 cc and 250 cc two-stroke dirt bikes and that’s what the 200 XC is here to fill in with a successful combination between lightness and agility with serious get up and go. Adequate both for enduro riding and for track racing, the new model manages to represent the next step for those riding the 125s and the 250s simply because it blows away from the two thanks to the superior power-to-weight ratio.

What’s best about the 2009 KTM 200 XC is that the price is in accordance with the bike’s position in the Austrian lineup so we’re dealing with a quite possible best bang for the buck candidate.

Two-strokes have long overrun their glory days, but there’s still incredible potential in the cheap and old technology engines, so manufacturers such as KTM not only carry on producing dirt bikes that are powered by such engines, but continue upgrading the oil burners and mounting them on today’s refined chassis for excellent results both on the tracks and on the trails. This is the case of the new 250 and 300 XC models produced and sold by the Austrian manufacturer and we simply had to dig a little deeper into this unique torque and sharpness combination.
