KTM has taken the wraps off its all-new Freeride 250 R two stroke. The motorcycle was especially developed for the beginner off-road riders or for those who want a fun motorcycle that can deal with any type of terrain without backing down.
The motorcycle is propelled by a detuned version of the unit that powers the 250EXC. The 1-cylinder 2-stroke, 249 cc, water-cooled unit comes with weed intake and exhaust control and is mated on a six speeds, claw shifted transmission.
The motorcycle’s backbone is represented by a modern frame made of stainless steel sections and bolt-on forged aluminium components.
The stopping power is assured by a modern Formula braking system that includes a revised piston system, radial callipers with four pistons front and two pistons rear, and lightweight wave brake discs.
The 2014 KTM Freeride 250 R will be available in dealers from mid-September.
