Having won more than 160 World Championship titles over the past 35 years, KTM feels the need to celebrate with the launch of a limited Champion’s Edition motorcycle series that involves the new 250 XC-FW, 450 XC-W, 450 EXC and 530 EXC models.
Standing out thanks to a fresh, new and racy look, the bikes are greater performers than their 2009 model year siblings and will start being available on June 1 at KTM dealerships across the country.
They don’t mention how many units of each model will be made so we can’t
figure how “limited” the bikes are so there might just be enough for everyone.
Press release after the break.
KTM is celebrating its impressive 160+ World Championship titles from the past 35 years with the announcement of the limited Champion’s Edition motorcycle.
In 1974, the Russian Gennadij Moiseev won the very first 250cc World Championship Title for KTM, thus writing the first chapter of an unparalleled motorsports success story. 35 years later, KTM has amazingly amassed more than 160 World Championship titles in a wide variety of racing series.
This summer KTM is presenting the Champion’s Edition bike to honor the past KTM Champions. As true champs these limited bikes stand out from the standard KTM models with their one-of-a-kind racing design influenced by two-time Motocross World Champion Heinz Kinigadner. The Champion’s Edition bike comes complete with a Red Bull Kini Graphics kit, headlight and taillight package, skid plate, front axle pull, black shrouds, billet fuel cap and many more KTM PowerParts items to truly make this bike match that of its Champions.
Plus, upon purchase of a KTM Champion’s Edition motorcycle new owners will receive a $400.00 KTM PowerWear and PowerParts voucher to ensure their apparel and parts continue to match that of the KTM Champions. The Champion’s Edition motorcycles will be available at your KTM dealer starting June 1, 2009 in the following models: 250XC-FW, 450XC-W, 450EXC and 530EXC.
