The Austrian manufacturer is well known for its revolutionary advancements in technology and now the game-changer is finally here, with 2-stroke fuel injection Enduro models being launched as part of the 2018 EXC range. With KTM’s unwavering commitment to being at the very forefront of offroad motorcycle sport, in which the orange brand has achieved many championship wins over the years, the latest, exciting development in technology has come to fruition.
It has been no secret that KTM’s Research and Development department in Mattighofen, Austria has been developing this technology, which offers considerable benefits over carbureted models including drastically reduced fuel consumption while also no-longer having the need to pre-mix fuel or alter the machines’ jetting. Not only that, the new 2-stroke TPI models offer a completely new experience in terms of power delivery and rideability, which once again demonstrates KTM’s commitment to its offroad roots, following on from the all-new generation of Enduro machines released last year. As market leaders in this segment, KTM believes the new 2-stroke fuel injection technology, known as TPI (Transfer Port Injection), is revolutionary. More information will be available during the international media launch, which begins on May 15, 2017.
“This is an incredibly exciting development for KTM. We have been developing 2-stroke fuel injection for some time, and our goal was to create competitive motorcycles with all the benefits of fuel injection, while fitting into our READY TO RACE mantra.

Husqvarna Motorcycles proudly announce the introduction of their next generation fuel-injected 2-stroke enduro motorcycles. Perfectly embodying the brand’s pioneering spirit, the new from the ground up 2018 TE 250i and TE 300i machines will feature engine technology that is set to revolutionise the field of 2-stroke enduro motorcycles.
Enjoying over a century of uninterrupted design, development and production, Husqvarna Motorcycles are now set to add another benchmark to their impressive timeline of innovations. Being one of the oldest motorcycle manufacturers, and the first company to ever produce a purpose-built offroad bike, Husqvarna Motorcycles have always been a great advocate of 2-stroke technology.
From Rolf Tibblin’s first Motocross European Championship in 1959 to the golden age of motocross during the 60s and the 70s, Husqvarna has remained a dominant force in the segment of high-performance 2-stroke offroad motorcycles. With their new generation of fuel-injected 2-strokes arriving soon, Husqvarna Motorcycles will proudly start a new chapter in their history of pioneering innovation and forward-thinking development.
This revolutionary new technology will go into production in June. Additional information about Husqvarna’s MY18 2-stroke enduro models will be released on May 30, 2017.
HUSQVARNA MOTORCYCLES INTRODUCE FUEL-INJECTED 2-STROKE ENDURO MODELS
The 300cc 2-stroke engine sets the benchmark in unrivalled power and lightweight construction. The engine has a completely new construction featuring new shaft arrangements for improved mass centralisation, a new counter balancer shaft reducing vibration, a new twin-valve controlled power valve and re-worked 6-speed enduro gearbox. The new engine design allows for the implementation of a laterally mounted counter-balancer. The balancer is integrated in a very compact way and significantly reduces vibrations resulting in a smoother and more comfortable ride. The lightweight, die-cast engine casings are developed to accommodate new shaft arrangements. The clutch shaft is now 8mm higher while the crankshaft position is 27mm higher centralising oscillating mass and improving ride-ability. While keeping the same successful geometry from MY17, the hydro-formed, laser-cut and robot-welded frame is expertly crafted by WP Performance Systems. The 6mm wider and 2 mm lower steel tubes offer 20% higher torsional rigidity while longitudinal stiffness is reduced by 30%. The increased torsional rigidity improves stability and agility while reducing the longitudinal stiffness creates increased flexibility for better bump absorption and suspension functionality. The new frame weighs only 8.8 kg making it 0.6 kg lighter than its predecessor. The composite subframe is a design unique to Husqvarna motorcycles showcasing pioneering technology and innovation.
This 3 piece component is made up of 30% carbon fibre making it remarkably light (1.4 kg) saving 1 kg over the previous design. Specific care is taken to create a calculated rigidity for optimal handling and rider ergonomics. The WP Xplor 48 front fork is a completely new feature developed by WP Performance Systems specifically for enduro type riding. The forks consist of an open cartridge layout with a spring in each circuit and split damping functions. Compression can be adjusted from the left side and rebound on the right via clickers situated on the top of the fork tube. Additionally, with the standard pre-load adjuster, pre-load can be adjusted by the rider without the use of tools making the new system simple and easy to set up. The WP DCC rear shock is designed to provide advanced damping characteristics while keeping to a compact and lightweight design. The new rear shock weighs only 3.7 kg which is 0.36 kg lighter than the previous version. With a pressure balance inside the shock, damping is improved resulting in greater rider comfort and handling while the outer contour of the reservoir increases cooling. The component is also fully adjustable and matched to a linkage system with a specific geometry to deliver the best possible traction and absorption.
I think this is best and cheapest mod what i done to my KTM EXC300 and got so amazing results. Get G2 Throttle Tamer from g2ergo.com if you need more control over your bike throttle.
With G2 Ergnomics Products you will get really nice instructions so installation was really easy. In slower technical terrain you will notice big difference when you compare to your stock OEM tube. At smaller throttle opening you get much more control which means you will get more grip on the ground also i notice it will less wear and tear my body because i have perfect bike control and not snappy ktm exc 300 throttle response like before.
KTM EX300 & XC300 Smooth Power Delivery
So if you are a hobby rider and you think your KTM has to much power for you or having problems with snappy power delivery this product is for you. It will make your KTM 300 Smooth Power Delivery and much more fun to ride. Its not really expensive its only $69 and trust me its worth the money.
The Throttle Tamer incorporates a non-linear ratio between hand throttle rotation and carburetor or throttle body opening. The “pulley”, or as we call it, “cam” pulls the throttle cable as the rider rotates the grip/tube. By altering the conventional, circular shaped cam, a vast improvement in control is achieved. For most models the Throttle Tamer includes a 400 style cam profile, but some will have alternative cam profiles. The cam proven to be the best all-round solution for each model is used.
About G2 Ergo Dirt Tamer
The Throttle Tamer has a cam with a reduced radius initially, which requires a slightly farther rotation to achieve the same carburetor or throttle body opening position as a stock throttle. This slightly longer pull makes a HUGE difference in control as the power is rolled on and the rider searches for traction. The radius increases or “ramps up” after ½ throttle to keep overall rotation requires to reach full throttle at or near stock rotation.
G2 Key Points:
- Machined from 6061 aluminum in the USA!
- Self-lubricating Delrin bushings at each end of tube eliminate aluminum-to-aluminum contact and provide an ultra-smooth feel.
- Included cam ratio varies per model based on best suggested ratio for the machine’s power characteristics.
- Fits inside the stock throttle housing to stock cables.
- Slide one of our Domino grips (sold separately) or your grip unto the included Throttle Tube.
- Removable end cap for simple handguard installation.
- Installs in minutes!
KTM has finally confirm 2018 2 stroke EXC models will come with EFI (Electronic fuel injection). The base engine for EFI will be 2017 model and new revolutionary KTM EFI 2 stroke models will be presented in June 2017.
Its really an open secret but now KTM finally confirms what we all were expecting for long time. 2T Electronic injection will come on EXC, XC and XC-W models. Bike presentation will be officially presented to press and news in June 2017, we got this info direct from KTM internal sources.
Also KTM had problems with euro 4 and some KTM dealers cant anymore sell 2017 models in their country’s. But new 2018 model will come with euro 4 and it will easy pass euro 4 with elections fuel injection and lower emissions. But there is new problem for KTM, in 2020 we will have new big problem called euro5. But we all hope KTM will find solution for this and make EXC and XC models legal for street.
