MURRIETA, Calif. – KTM North America, Inc. is proud to introduce its prestigious lineup of 2020 special edition Enduro models with the announcement of the all-new KTM 300 XC-W TPI SIX DAYS and KTM 500 EXC-F SIX DAYS models, as well as the exclusive KTM 300 XC-W TPI ERZBERGRODEO machine.

Developed on the toughest climbs, gnarliest terrain and in the deepest mud with KTM’s factory racing stars, the benchmark-setting KTM offroad and dual-sport machines have just raised the bar again for the 2020 lineup. This range of KTM EXC-F and XC-W TPI models boasts the very latest in innovation with new and more efficient high-performing engines, a re-developed chassis with improved WP XPLOR suspension, improved handling, new bodywork, new air filter box, new cooling system and new exhaust systems. 

These features are combined with the high-quality premium parts package offered on the flagship KTM SIX DAYS and the exclusive KTM 300 XC-W TPI ERZBERGRODEO models, making these the best competition machines on the market. With the International Six Days Enduro (ISDE) at the core of the design of the SIX DAYS models, they celebrate the sport of enduro and have a wide range of well-thought out KTM PowerParts fitted over the standard KTM EXC-F and XC-W TPI models.

SIX DAYS MODELS 

When it comes to offroad motorcycle racing, no other brand comes close to the success or even just the presence of KTM. And year after year, one of the events where this becomes especially plain is the biggest competition on the calendar, the International Six Days Enduro. From the humble beginnings of a few daring riders in the Scottish border region testing the mettle of what was then emerging technology, the ISDE has turned into the team world championship of the Enduro scene, with more than 500 riders from over 30 nations expected on the grid. This Enduro marathon demands as much from the bikes as it does from the riders, and year after year, more than half of them show up in Orange.

The 2019 International Six Days Enduro will be held in Portugal. The rocky terrain and the dusty and worn tracks are bound to once again place extreme demands on all brave riders and machines that take on the battle. No chain is stronger than its weakest link. Thus, compromise of any kind has no place in their equipment if they strive to even cross the finish line, much less emerge victorious from the ordeal with their compatriots and teammates.

KTM also once again rises to the challenge with the latest, limited SIX DAYS edition of extra-tough machines. Easily identified as premium models by their special SIX DAYS design, these bikes are also upgraded and equipped with an extended list of top-of-the-line components, specially designed and refined by KTM’s own research and development department for the exceptional event, making them the ultimate Enduro bikes.
