TWO-strokes are dead, right?
KTM has this morning revealed the world’s first fuel-injected two-stroke enduro bikes, the 300 EXC TPI and 250 EXC TPI.
The Austrian firm says the 2018 competition machines use two injectors into cylinder ports to reduce fuel consumption, make the engine smoother and eliminate the need for pre-mix fuel or jet changes for different environments.
KTM off-road marketing head Joachim Sauer said: “It is a very proud moment for us to unveil the world’s first serial electronic fuel injection two-stroke off-road competition bikes.
“We at KTM are committed to developing revolutionary technology, and with the KTM 250 EXC TPI and KTM 300 EXC TPI models we feel the game has once again been changed, as this is a global first.
“Our goal was to create a two-stroke Enduro bike that would not be incredibly complex, while also retaining the feel of a carbureted machine, yet with all the benefits of fuel injection. This includes the elimination of the need to pre-mix fuel or change the jetting for different environments, which is a major benefit to the rider for hassle free two-stroke fun.”
Great. Now do the same with a road bike.
