‘XC’ means cross-country. ‘W’ represents its wide-ratio transmission. ‘KTM’ stands for winning. This model is a READY TO RACE bike built for closed-course enduro racing. With the agility of a 125 and enough muscle to take the fight to the 250 cc 4-Strokes, this bike punches well above its weight. Updated WP Xplor Suspension, a lightweight chromoly steel frame and a super-compact electric-start 144 cc engine mean nothing short of a dominating performance in the tightest of situations. That’s why when the going gets tough, the tough get an XC-W.
2018 150 XC-W Highlights
UPDATED 38mm Mikuni TMX carburetor with new settings and a new angle (turned 7°) for better controllable power with reduced fuel overflow. It is also less sensitive to altitude and temperature changes.
