We’ve been hear­ing the ru­mors for years: KTM is se­cretly de­vel­op­ing a fuel-in­jected two-stroke. Well, it seems the ru­mors are ac­tu­ally true, and this could be a game-changer in the realm of off-road mo­tor­cy­cles. As part of its 2018 EXC range, KTM will be in­tro­duc­ing a two-stroke fuel-in­jected enduro model.

It’s long been hinted that KTM’S re­search and de­vel­op­ment de­part­ment in Mat­tighofen, Aus­tria, was de­vel­op­ing the tech­nol­ogy. Fuel in­jec­tion of­fers con­sid­er­able ben­e­fits over car­bu­reted mod­els, in­clud­ing dras­ti­cally re­duced fuel con­sump­tion while also no longer hav­ing the need to pre­mix fuel or fid­dle with jet­ting. In ad­di­tion, the new two-stroke TPI mod­els of­fer a com­pletely new ex­pe­ri­ence in terms of power de­liv­ery and ride­abil­ity. As mar­ket lead­ers in this seg­ment, KTM be­lieves the new two-stroke fuel-in­jec­tion tech­nol­ogy, known as TPI (Trans­fer Port In­jec­tion), is rev­o­lu­tion­ary.

Stay tuned! KTM is promis­ing more in­for­ma­tion dur­ing the bike’s in­tro­duc­tion at the in­ter­na­tional me­dia launch, which be­gins May 15, 2017.
