2013 KTM 300 EXC Six Days

Posted on by

The KTM 300 EXC was developed to race in the world’s largest enduro competition, the "International Six Days Enduro".

The competition lasts six days in succession and covers over a thousand offroad kilometers. The rider will have to spent over 40 hours in the saddle, so its bike must receive a special treatment to be able to finish the race with success.

At the heart of the motorcycle lies a 1-cylinder 2-stroke, water-cooled engine, with reed intake and exhaust control. The 293 cc unit sends power to the rear wheel via a six speeds, claws shifted gearbox. In terms of power-to-weight ratio, the 2013 KTM 300 EXC Six Days is practically unbeatable as it weighs only 104 kg.

The 2013 KTM 300 EXC Six Days rides on a front WP Suspension Up Side Down fork and a rear WP Suspension shock absorber.

BODYWORK

The KTM 300 EXC Six Days has bodywork with extremely slim ergonomics and excellent contact points between rider and machine. It provides unlimited freedom of movement. For MY 2013, the bike stands out with newly styled graphics in the colours of the ISDE in Germany.

HANDLEBAR

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.

TRIPLE CLAMP

Meticulously finished triple clamps machined from a solid block are fitted to all Six Days models. Not only do they look classy in anodised orange; above all, they are designed in such a way that they support the responsiveness and sliding behaviour of the new fork and ultimately have a positive effect on the entire handling.

INDIVIDUAL SUSPENSION SETTING

KTM 300 EXC Six Days

Each EXC model has its own individual suspension settings in 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 new, extremely stable, 7050 aluminium rims from GIANT now bear exclusive 6Days lettering. New MAXXIS FIM tyres - specially developed for KTM - provide excellent traction, very precise directional control and a long service life.

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 Six Days 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 Six Days delivers perceptibly better acceleration and more homogeneous power development.

NEW AIRBOX

The redesigned airbox on the KTM 300 EXC Six Days allows maximum air to pass through in 2013, 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 300 EXC Six Days as well!

ADDITIONAL ELECTRIC STARTER

The 300 EXC Six Days is equipped with both kick and electric starters in MY 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.

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 KTM 300 EXC Six Days is practically unbeatable thanks to its latest facelift. Unrivalled performance and playful handling are the results.
