KTM 250 EXC SIX DAYS 2017
SIX DAYS, SIX WINS

 
 

KTM has ruled offroad for decades. The special edition SIX DAYS models celebrate this success with special performance upgrades and top-of-the-line components. In 2016 the ISDE (International Six Days Enduro) will be held in Navarra, Spain and the KTM model line-up has been suitably equipped to handle anything the dusty and rocky terrain can throw at it. Arriba!

    The all-new WP XPlor 48 upside-down fork is a split fork developed by WP in close collaboration with KTM. It is fitted with a spring on both sides but features separated functions for each fork leg: compression damping is fitted on the left side, while rebound is on the right. So the forks can easily be adjusted for compression (left) and rebound (right) with the twist of a dial on top of the fork tubes (30 clicks each). In addition, a longer and sealed hydro-stop guarantees better resistance to bottoming-out. Due to high-quality materials and a state-of-the-art production process, the new XPlor 48 fork - with approx. 300mm of travel - has outstanding response and damping characteristics and is about 200g lighter than its predecessor. A new, standard preload adjuster allows for a threefold spring preload setting without any tools. Easy as one, two, three.       The high-tech, lightweight chrome-moly steel frame has a knack for easy handling, outlandish rideability, precise cornering and excellent stability. You can also count on high torsional rigidity and low longitudinal stiffness. This results in better absorption of the energy created from the front and rear suspension sucking up jumps and bumps. In short: more comfort and less rider fatigue. Laterally attached, lightweight aluminum engine head stays (the connection between cylinder head and frame) contribute to a reduced vibration level. The engineers were able to pull off all that, while making their frame a big fat kilogram lighter than that of the lightest competitor on the market. In addition, it is easier to maintain, easier to work on and supplies more space for the tank and other components. The bike also features an extra-light subframe made of stable aluminum profiles, which tiptoes the scales at less than 900g. The orange coating truly makes it stand out; precisely what an engineering masterpiece like this deserves.       You couldn’t brake any harder, better, faster or stronger. These high-tech Brembo babies are combined with a floating wave disc in the front and a hard-wearing, heat resistant solid rear brake disc and feature reduced piston diameter for better modulation. The rear brake now has a 10mm longer brake pedal and you get new, less aggressive brake pads all round. The steel-flex front brake hose gets more efficient protection and there’s an integrated channel for the speedo cable. First you outrun them, then you outbrake them.    
                         
                         
 

TRIPLE CLAMPS

 
  The new generation is fitted with CNC machined, orange anodized triple clamps with an offset of 22mm,
ensuring a solid grip of the fork and precise handling.
You can move the handlebar forwards and backwards over 4 positions,
so the bike should fit you like your Enduro gloves.

SEAT

Tailored to meet the needs of the world’s fastest backsides, this specific SIX DAYS seat is durable and offers great comfort, helping you master the most challenging terrain all day long.
   
   

BODYWORK

     

HANDLEBARS

         
   

The KTM 250 EXC SIX DAYS has bodywork with extremely slim ergonomics and excellent contact points between rider and machine. It provides unlimited freedom of movement and has the styling to match this glamorous event.

      KTM engineers sure know how to handle handlebars. This tapered one, made of high-strength aluminum by NEKEN, features a newly developed throttle assembly with a robust aluminum body and easy free-play adjustment. An ODI volcanized grip sits on the right, while on the left side of the bar a comfortable ODI lock-on grip is mounted, which does not require any wire or glue to be fixed. On the 4-strokes you can now retrofit an optional throttle cam, for different response characteristics to suit your specific needs. The map switch on the handlebar is standard and allows for the selection of an even feistier power curve. In addition, on the 4-strokes, you can activate the revolutionary traction control at the push of a button. Bring it on, world.
