DESCRIPTION:
2013 KTM 300XC - The 300 XC provides the 2-stroke afficianado exactly what they want; awesome 2-stroke power and the chassis to utlize every bit of it. KTM continues to innovate and develop 2-strokes including a new single diaphgram clutch and V-Force reed cage for even more performance.

A new DDS clutch (Damped Diaphragm Steel) with a wear-free steel cage is fitted to the KTM 300 XC engine, allowing use of thin steel discs for minimum overall width. The diaphragm spring, which preloads the package, not only reduces the operating force required to pull the clutch, but also provides space for integrated hub damping. The result: more traction and protection for the transmission. And with hydraulic clutch actuation from Brembo, the rider has everything under control right from the start.

The modern frame design of lightweight, high-strength, chromoly steel section tubes guarantees an ideal mix of longitudinal and torsional stiffness, resulting not only in easy handling and precise steering behavior, but also in excellent ride stability. The engine braces to the cylinder head have also been optimized, along with their attachment to the frame. The frames have a new color for the 2013 model year and they are still the benchmark in terms of weight and stability.

The further improved 48 mm (1.89 in) upside-down fork featuring closed-cartridge technology has been optimized with completely revamped US XC specific settings for perfect harmony with the new frame and engine. The new oil is significantly more wear-resistant and guarantees more consistent damping throughout both the course of a race and the bike's life cycle. A new lower triple clamp is 80 g (2.82 oz) lighter and, just like the upper triple clamp, CNC-machined from high quality aluminum, whereby the steering characteristics, and hence, the responsiveness of the fork have been noticeably improved.

Visually the completely revamped bodywork indicate that the 2013 model year represents a new XC generation. Above all, the ergonomics and function of the plastics have been designed in such a way that the whole chassis and engine package forms a perfect harmony with the rider down to the very last detail. The fuel tank and spoiler have been restyled along with the airbox cover and the front fender, including the front number plate. A particular highlight is the new front fender, which has no ribbing whatsoever on the inside, thereby preventing mud build-up. A pioneering structure and improved attachment of the fender to the triple clamp result in up to 50% greater lateral stiffness.

The wheels are fitted with lightweight, CNC-machined hubs and high-end GIANT rims, plus new, black-coated spokes with aluminium nipples, guaranteeing the highest levels of stability while keeping weight to a minimum. The Dunlop GEOMAX MX51 tires stand for excellent traction and good performance. For the benefit of greater ride stability on the 2013 KTM 250 XC , the rear axle has been increased in diameter from 20 mm (0.79 in) to 25 mm (0.98 in).

Brakes from BremboŽ are standard equipment on KTM motocross bikes and, together with lightweight Galpher wave-type brake discs, they are recognized as the measure of all things in terms of application and brake performance. At the rear wheel, the BremboŽ brake caliper carriers have been adapted to the larger axle diameter for MY 2013.
