The Red Bull KTM Factory Racing team knows a little something about enduro racing. This June, the team is sending five riders to the Erzbergrodeo — part of the World Enduro Super Series and one of the toughest enduro races around — and two of the five riders have won the race before.
Taking what they’ve learned from the Erzberg race (and many other enduro races) KTM is launching a new range of enduro bikes with race-ready upgrades and innovations for 2020. Their new model, KTM 150 EXC TPI meets Euro4 (new emissions standards in Europe). They’ve also got two two-stroke models, and four four-stroke models. In addition to upping both the efficiency and performance of the engines, every one of the 2020 models is getting a redeveloped chassis, improved suspension and handling, and new cooling and exhaust systems. Adding NEKEN handlebars, Brembo brakes and CNC milled hubs make the new bikes ready to perform in the toughest conditions.
There’s also a special edition bike for 2020 in honor of the upcoming race. A limited edition, 500-unit release, the KTM 300 EXC TPI ERZBERGRODEO will have additional race-ready parts and an exclusive livery. All eight bikes should hit dealers’ inventory this June.
