Forged from KTM’s desire to create the supreme 250 cc motorcycle for cross country racing, the 250 XC scores high marks in all departments.
For the starters it comes with an extremely low weight rated at only 104 kg. Then, this low weight was combined with a compact and light 249 cc, 1-cylinder, 2-stroke, water-cooled engine with reed intake and exhaust control. The engine’s power is kept in leash by a six speed transmission with multi disc clutch. This perfect combination between power and lightness makes the KTM 250 XC unbeatable when it comes of power-to-weight ratio.
However power without control is useless, so the motorcycle needed a set of capable suspensions and similarly capable brakes. Therefore KTM choose the best providers in the industry so the suspension system is signed by the guys from WP Suspensions, while the brakes are combing from Brembo.
