The 2013 KTM EXC is ready to rumble. Te motorcycle has all the benefits of its smaller 240 cc brother, but it offers more power which makes it stronger and more fun to ride over the harsh terrain.
The motorcycle is equipped with KTM’s revolutionary DDS clutch which is light and smooth and delivers first class performances at any time. The 1-cylinder, 2-stroke, water-cooled, engine has a displacement of 293 cc and puts out a maximum power of 58.1 hp @ 7842 rpm and 43 lb.ft of torque @ 6842 rpm.
One of the most important new features offered for the 2013 model is the individual suspension.
Out back an advanced PDS shock absorber works with a direct linkage to the upper side of the swingarm delivering a proper ride quality. Needless to say, the bike also comes with standard setting options for rebound damping and high- and low-speed compression damping.

It’s renowned for massive 2-stroke performance and torque: the KTM 300 EXC. The revolutionary KTM DDS clutch feels fantastically light and smooth here as well. The KTM 300 EXC 2013 is equipped with the same technical features as its 250 cc brother. Its tried and tested chassis is tailor-made for extremely tough tracks. It carries on where others climb off.
ENGINE POWER AND WEIGHT
The understandable technology of the two-stroke engine has indisputable advantages, including a high power/displacement ratio and low weight. In terms of power-to-weight ratio, the 2013 300 EXC is practically unbeatable thanks to its latest facelift. Unrivalled performance and playful handling are the results.
ADJUSTABLE IGNITION CURVE
By opening and closing a plug connection, the choice can be made in 2013 between the standard ignition curve and a softer version. Those who prefer even greater convenience can buy a switch for the KTM 300 EXC from the PowerParts range.
LINEAR POWER DEVELOPMENT
Plenty of power from the bottom up and controllable rideability throughout the rev range. The response of the exhaust control system can be individually tuned by means of different springs. This way, everyone can very easily vary the power development of their EXC (also combinable with the two ignition curves) between "soft" and "aggressive" in a matter of seconds. And the new reed valve block on the 2013 300 EXC delivers perceptibly better acceleration and more homogeneous power development.
The redesigned airbox on the 2013 300 EXC allows maximum air to pass through, but minimal dust and spray. Replacement of the twin-air filter takes approx. 15 seconds, without any tools. Absolutely "READY TO RACE".
NEW CYLINDER HEAD
KTM 2-stroke technology is updated and refined year after year. The newly developed cylinder head delivers smoother and more even responsiveness. At the same time, new jets tuned to the modified cylinder head ensure even better rideability. Power-Valve exhaust control, 6-speed transmission and electric starter are a tried and tested KTM standard for 250/300 cm³. From MY 2013, for the KTM 300 EXC as well!
ADDITIONAL ELECTRIC STARTER
The KTM 300 EXC is equipped with both kick and electric starters in 2013. This simplifies starting the bike in all situations. With its patented placement in a longitudinal direction above the ignition, the compact starter system is optimally protected and provides a decisive advantage in hard offroad use.
INDIVIDUAL SUSPENSION SETTING
The KTM 300 EXC has its own individual suspension setting in MY 2013, optimally tuned to weight and engine. At the rear, a PDS shock absorber from WP Suspension works with a direct linkage to the upper side of the swingarm. The wide range of setting options for rebound damping and high- and low-speed compression damping are standard on KTM bikes.
HIGH QUALITY WHEELS
High quality, CNC-machined hubs are standard on all KTM wheels. The now black coated spokes increase corrosion resistance and centre the new, extremely stable, 7050 aluminium rims from GIANT. New MAXXIS FIM tyres - specially developed for KTM - provide excellent traction, very precise directional control and a long service life.
The 300 EXC model year 2013 has bodywork with extremely slim ergonomics and excellent contact points between rider and machine. It provides unlimited freedom of movement. Newly styled graphics give the models a fresher appearance in 2013.
Tapered, extremely stable aluminium handlebars from Neken are paraded on the 2013 enduro bikes. For the 2013 model year, new 2-component grips with KTM logo deliver excellent feeling and improved grip.
