KTM has revealed its new Enduro line-up for 2017 after a complete revamp of its models.

According to the Austrian manufacturer, 90 per cent of the 2017 line-up’s components are brand new, along with weight reductions of up to five kilograms across the range.

KTM says that these improvements have resulted in better performance and improved handling across all models.

The 125 and 200 EXC have been replaced by the 125 XC-W and the 150 XC-W and both are designed for closed course racing.

The 250 EXC and 300 EXC remain in the 2-stroke range while the 250 EXC-F and 350 EXC-F in the 4-stroke range also get complete revamps.

For the larger capacity 4-strokes, a change comes in their name with the 450 EXC-F and 500 EXC-F now in the line-up.

What are the actual changes?

The real changes come in the form of a new chassis across all models, along with a new suspension system, complete with an upside-down split for.

New engines also feature, developed by teams in Europe and North America, giving improved performance alongside better handling because of a reduction in weight and a more compact size.

There have also been minor technology and dashboard changes across the range which, KTM says, should benefit the ‘amateur rider right up-to the professional world championship racer.’

The new KTM MY2017 range will arrive at dealerships throughout Europe in June.
