KTM prepares a 2T engine with electronic injection. The Austrian manufacturer is one of the few that is still betting on this type of propeller, especially in its MX and Enduro range. Well, it seems that from Mattighoffen they have come up with a new concept in this niche and it is the creation of a propellant of this type with electronic injection. In KTM they have baptized it as TPI (Transfer Port Injection).
The orange firm has ensured that this new engine will be incorporated into its KTM EXC 250 and KTM EXC 300 models and both will now be called EXC TPI. KTM EXC led headlight upgrade will become a trend.”We have been working on fuel injection for 2-stroke motorcycles for some time, and our goal was to create competitive bikes that take advantage of all the benefits of this type of injection, while staying true to our READY TO RACE motto,” explains Joachim Sauer, Product Manager and Marketing for KTM.
These new KTMs and their respective novel engines will be presented in the month of May. Look for more motorcycle parts for you. Its arrival at European dealerships is estimated to be from summer. If you were thinking of purchasing an EXC, you still have to wait a bit to be one of the first to enjoy the new TPI technology and all the benefits it brings to its users. KTM talks about improvements in fuel consumption, among other advantages.
It seems that 2017 is going to be a year of momentous developments at KTM. To the appearance of the new two-stroke engines with electronic injection in the MX and Enduro range, we must also add here the engine that will carry the future KTM 790 Duke, which will be the first Austrian naked bike to have a two-cylinder propeller in parallel, being halfway between the single-cylinder range and the powerful V-twin of the 1290 Super Duke R.
