After the last round of major model updates in 2016, off-road racing specialists KTM have thoroughly revised and updated its motocross and enduro motorcycle range for 2019, with 11 new models making it to Malaysia. Starting with the 250 cc off-road range, the competition only 2019 KTM 250 SX-F is priced at RM38,500, with the two-stroke KTM 250 EXC TPI enduro going for RM39,000.

Further up the range is the 2019 KTM 250 EXC TPI Six Days – in 2018 the ISDE Six Days competition was held in Chile – which goes for RM42,500. The enduro model EXC-F comes in two flavours, base at RM44,000 and the Six Days version at RM48,000.

There are two two-stroke 300 cc enduro models in KTM’s 2019 range, the 300 EXC TPI at RM44,000 and the 300 EXC TPI Six Days at RM48,000, similarly priced to the four-stroke 250 EXC-F bikes. In the 350 category are the 2019 KTM 350 EXC-F at RM45,000 and 350 EXC-F Six Days at RM49,500.

Topping out the KTM Malaysia off-road range in 2019 are the KTM 450 EXC-F at RM46,000 and the KTM 450 EXC-F Six Days at RM50,500. All 2019 KTM motorcycles officially imported into Malaysia by authorised distributor Eurotech are now on display in KTM Malaysia dealer showrooms.

For 2019, major improvements have been made to the handling prowess of KTM’s off-roaders, as well as weight reduction. Of note on the 250 SX-F is a 40 mm longer sub-frame for safety on jumps and a 5 mm longer swingarm to improve straight line stability.

The 250 SX-F also gets a steel diaphragm (DS) clutch which takes the place of traditional clutch springs. This allows for a weight reduction of 190 grammes in engine weight as well as three levels of clutch engagement.

Able to be registered for on-road use, KTM’s EXC enduro range ranges from 250 cc to 450 cc, with the 300 EXC two-stroke and 350 EXC four-stroke slotting neatly in the middle. For the 300 EXC, its two-stroke engine uses twin injectors in the transfer ports, and 2-T lubricant is carried in the frame backbone, eliminating the need for pre-mix, and delivered via an electronically controlled oil pump.

Suspension on the EXC range is from WP Suspension, with the fully-adjustable XPLOR 48 fork and XPLOR PDS monoshock. Optional for all EXC models is traction control, which can be controlled on-the-fly, and is standard fitment on the Six Days versions of the EXC.

Distinguished by its KTM Racing Orange frame, the Six Days EXC is set apart from the base model by the inclusion of radiator fans for all four-stroke models, floating front brake disc and solid rear brake disc along with a SuperSprox two-piece rear sprocket. The Six Days logo is found all over the EXC Six-Days, naturally, along with an anodised orange billet aluminium upper and lower triple clamp.
