2014 KTM 125 EXC SIX DAYS

Posted on by  

The KTM 125 EXC Six Days is a tough off roader that is ready to follow your lead with obedience every time you feel the taste of adventure.

The motorcycle is propelled by a 124.8 cc, 1-Cylinder, 2-Stroke, Water-Cooled, engine with reed intake and exhaust control. For enhanced performances, the engine has a redesigned reed valve housing featuring Boyesen high-performance reeds. It is mated to a 6 gear, claw shifted transmission with wet multi-disc clutch.

The KTM 125 EXC Six Days is built on a central tube frame made of chrome molybdenum steel tubing with high-quality orange coating. The frame sits on front WP suspension up side down 4860 4CS forks and a rear WP Suspensions shock absorber.

Other features that are worthy of being mentioned include new machined triple clamps (orange anodized), a black anodised handlebar with KTM Six Days logo, a supersprox 2-piece rear sprocket with steel outer ring and aluminium star, a rear brake disc, skid plate and radiator guard.

2014 KTM 125 EXC SIX DAYS: For the Toughest Missions

The KTM 125 EXC is "READY TO RACE" for the world’s largest enduro competition, the "International Six Days Enduro". Six days in succession, over a thousand offroad kilometres, 40 hours in the saddle - a gruelling test, not only for the rider. A whole package of high-quality special options makes the 125 EXC Six Days 2014 fit for this ruthless contest, in which more than half the starters bank on KTM every year. KTM 125 EXC Six Days - only authentic with the orange powder-coated frame of the KTM Factory Team. No other brand is anywhere near as strongly and successfully represented in offroad sport as KTM. This is particularly clear in the world’s largest enduro competition, the "International Six Days Enduro" (ISDE), where more than 500 enduro riders from over 30 countries compete for the World Team Championship. A marathon enduro race that places just as high demands on the motorcycles as it does on the riders. That’s why year after year more than half the competitors place their trust in the tried and tested products from Austria. In 2013, the Six Days Race will be held on the Italian island of Sardinia. Those who want to arrive safely at the finish on the demanding, rocky terrain will have to make no compromises. In the form of the new Six Days models, KTM offers well-proven, robust machines that fully satisfy the high demands of this extraordinarily tough competition.

Performance Aplenty:

Air Box
The airbox on the KTM 125 EXC Six Days allows maximum air to pass through, but minimum dust and spray. Replacement of the twin-air filter takes approx. 15 seconds, without any tools. Absolutely "READY TO RACE".

Engine:

Engine
The engine has a redesigned reed valve housing featuring Boyesen high-performance reeds. Thanks to the innovations, performance has been optimised and responsiveness improved. Further optimisations include a new piston grinding pattern and an adjusted carburettor setting. The new developments make the 125 EXC even more steadfast.

Superior Chassis:

Telescopic Fork
The KTM Six Days models are equipped with a 48 mm 4CS closed-cartridge fork from WP Suspension. The 4-chamber technology (4CS) patented by WP not only provides a key benefit in terms of responsiveness and consistent damping characteristics, it is also lighter and oil services prove to be far simpler than on the conventional closed-cartridge versions. The setting has been made slightly stiffer and sportier for the 2014 model year to give the fork even more reserves on extremely rutted tracks as well. Naturally, the setting can easily be adapted to track and rider in a matter of a few clicks at the top of the fork: compression damping on the left-hand shaft, rebound damping on the right - another advantage of the 4CS technology.

Triple Clamp
Meticulously finished triple clamps, machined from a solid block: Not only do they look classy in anodised orange; they are also designed in such a way that they support the responsiveness and sliding behaviour of the new fork with their special shaping. The attachment points on the lower triple clamp have been adapted for new front fenders for the 2014 model year.

High Quality Wheels
The high quality, alloy wheels from GIANT made of extremely stable 7050 aluminium, featuring exclusive Six Days lettering and CNC-machined hubs, are standard on all KTM Six Days models. The MAXXIS FIM tyres provide excellent traction, very precise directional control and a long service life. An additional Six Days standard feature: the Supersprox 2-piece rear sprocket with steel outer ring and aluminium star.

Brakes
High-tech brakes from Brembo have always been standard equipment on KTM offroad bikes and, together with the lightweight wave brake discs, they are the measure of all things in terms of brake technology. A new handbrake armature has been employed for the 2014 model year, with new remote reservoir, smaller brake piston diameter and a new lever with optimised lever kinematics. As a result and thanks to optimised sintered brake pads (Toyo B169), the performance and application of the front brake have been perceptibly improved again.

Individual Suspension Settings
Each EXC model has its own individual suspension settings, 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.

Frame
The modern frame design of the 125 EXC Six Days, comprising lightweight, high strength, chrome-molybdenum steel section tubes, combines maximum longitudinal stiffness with optimum torsional stiffness. It guarantees easy handling and precise steering behaviour, as well as excellent ride stability. So the new frame not only shines with the new colour, it also clearly represents the benchmark in terms of weight and stability.

Swingarm
The cast aluminium swingarm has been developed with state-of-the-art calculation and simulation software and constructed, in terms of design and wall thickness, for minimum weight with optimum stiffness and precisely defined flexibility. For the 2014 model year, our engineers have revised the chainguide for the benefit of higher functional reliability, while simultaneously reducing the weight.

Slim Ergonomics For Perfect Control:

Bodywork
The KTM 125 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 2014, the bike excels again with the graphics restyled in 2013 in the colours of the ISDE in Germany.

Handlebar
The 125 EXC Six Days is equipped with a tapered Neken handlebar made from high-strength aluminium alloy. In accordance with the proven KTM standard, the handlebar can be fixed in a choice of four positions. Redesigned handguards made from ultra-sturdy 2-component plastic have been fitted for the 2014 model year, ensuring more efficient hand protection. The newly installed clutch armature from Brembo® has been adapted to the appearance of the brake armature.
