KTM has officially unveiled EXC 2015 model range and in a quest for pure brilliance the company aims to set the benchmark once again in the development of off-road motorcycles with the presentation of its model year 2015 Enduro range.
With continued refinements to the world dominating EXC machines, KTM’s Enduro bikes are again ready to set the standard for offroad fun and serious competition.
With over 50 per cent of the overall average Enduro market share worldwide, further dedication from the Austrian brand’s Research and Development department has seen the EXC range receive a variety of improvements and refinements for the latest version of each bike.
Last year KTM’s EXC machines took the E1 and E3 Enduro World Championship title wins, the EnduroCross and SuperEnduro titles, a number of X Games gold medals, the overall ISDE (International Six Days Enduro) win, along with numerous Extreme Enduro wins.
New for MY2015
For model year 2015 the EXC receives a range of chassis developments including a new MAE digital speedometer, which offers more readily visible information to the rider, new black Neken handlebars with improved handguards, and softer dual-compound grips.
There are also new black colored rims from Giant providing higher rigidity, that compliment the CNC machined hubs, as well as the factory look being completed with a striking orange frame, usually only seen on race team machines, and an exciting new graphic design.
The EXC range is already well renowned for its high specification components with high-end WP suspension including the well-proven PDS rear shock, a class-leading, modern and lightweight chromoly frame, high quality electrics and exhaust system and high-tech Brembo brakes.

The range itself includes four-stroke machines in the 250 EXC-F, 350 EXC-F, 450 EXC, 500 EXC, along with the two-stroke machines 125 EXC, 200 EXC, 250 EXC and 300 EXC, some of which have received detail engine improvements.
In addition to this, with a design relative to the ISDE event in Argentina later in the year, the Six Days range is also available with all-round upgrades and specialist PowerParts fitted to the machines for the ultimate performance.
This year’s launch for the EXC range is taking place this week in Sibiu, Romania, which quite aptly is the location that will soon see the Extreme Enduro experts battle it out for the Red Bull Romaniacs win.
In a few weeks’ time this Hard Enduro track will invite the world’s best racers to fight it out across some of the most difficult terrain, and KTM’s factory racer Jonny Walker, who rides the KTM 300 EXC, will be looking to add a Romaniacs victory to the Erzbergrodeo win he took just a few weeks ago.
