THE NEW KTM 300 EXC ERZBERGRODEO

CHRIS BIRCH RACES KAILUB RUSSELL TO THE TOP OF THE IRON GIANT ON THE NEW SPECIAL EDITION ENDURO

Solid preparation for a white-knuckled event like the ERZBERGRODEO is often half the battle. It helps by saving crucial time in the paddock and seconds on the course. A racer like Russell knows all about having the most honed and competitive package to fly through speedy sections and stare at some of the gnarliest obstacles while Birch demands nothing less than the finest technical set-up and performance to bounce through the trickiest ‘extreme’ zones. The 2023 KTM 300 EXC ERZBERGRODEO has been crafted around the acute attributes of both stars and features race-developed and premium parts. The 2023 model does full justice to the demands and infamy of the meeting through the latest specs.

Performance edge comes through the CNC-machined triple clamps, factory wheels with anodized hubs, a supersprox stealth rear sprocket, a map selector switch and the solid rear brake disc. Don’t forget the competition-specific Metzler 6 Days Extreme tires. Going faster or better also means a heightened degree of risk or punishment to the equipment. This is where the 2023 KTM 300 EXC ERZBERGRODEO also raises the bar with a capable handguard set, a radiator protector, chain guard bracket and clutch protector, front and rear brake guards and a rear brake safety wire.

Russell and Birch know that distinction and style cannot be underestimated: look good, feel good. The 2023 KTM 300 EXC ERZBERGRODEO is graced with a racing orange frame, a factory Selle Della Valle orange seat and lightweight skid plate and the Erzbergrodeo graphics set that subtly mixes grey with the distinctive KTM hue. The livery also carries some of the markers and checkpoints from the Erzbergrodeo such as the ‘Elevator, ‘Machine’ and ‘Carl’s Diner’.

The 2023 KTM 300 EXC ERZBERGRODEO is a fine instrument of enduro excellence. At the Erzbergrodeo – or any race even for that matter – it is primed for qualification, attacking and forging optimum results.

To aspire to be the best, and ride with the best, you need the best.

2023 KTM 450 SMR

TAKE THE LONG SLIDE TO SUPERIORITY

In a discipline where tenths of a second and tens of centimetres make the difference in a lap-time or an overtaking move, then the precision and the sheer razor-edged intent behind the 2023 KTM 450 SMR is exactly what any Supermoto fan or racer needs.

The innovations start with the refined hydro-formed, laser-cut and robot-welded frame. Front-end focus and sensitivity and rear-end stability defines everything that is fast and strong on the Supermoto circuit. KTM has altered longitudinal and torsional flex (also through frame wall thickness) to make sure that feedback is acute and on-point as any rider – from novice to world championship-level racer – will demand. A revised shock mount enhances energy absorption and straight-line stability for 2023. The ‘anti squat’ concept translates to better acceleration and corner exit and is also achieved courtesy of the repositioning of rotational masses and the new shock itself. The ‘inward’ located footrests augment the feeling that the 2023 KTM 450 SMR can be gripped, carried and pushed however far the rider wants to go. The polyamide reinforced aluminum 2-piece subframe is another ingredient for the overall improved handling effect – with the bonus of superb strength. The flow of contact with the track surface comes spilling through the high-grade aluminum CNC-machined triple clamps, which are newly applied with increased grip surface for less handlebar ‘twist’.

Sliding into turns has never felt easier but the added reassurance comes from expert degree of flex pouring forth from the diecast aluminum swingarm, new 22mm rear axle and the latest generation of WP XACT Suspension. AER 48mm forks have a split-damping function and simple tool-less adjusters among other advantages. The same practicality graces from the new shorter, lighter (but still with the same amount of travel) WP XACT rear shock, which is fully optimized with several significant upgrades to enable advanced damping characteristics. The WP XACT shock is the most progressive and capable system seen on a KTM Supermoto machine yet.

Calculated millimetres on corner entry are made possible with high-powered 4-piston Brembo brakes with a 310mm front disc. A 220mm disc and single piston caliper will bring the rear end around nicely while it’s feted by the SUTER anti-hopping clutch and Brembo hydraulics that will let riders drift all the way ‘til they shift.

Once the Metzeler Racetec SM K1 tyres (with a large usage window and rapid warm-up times) have been abused into the apex, the unmistakable firepower of the 2023 KTM 450 SMR gets everything firing forward. The new SOHC engine is designed with mass centralisation as the goal and blasts out 63 hp – with the motor weighing just under 27 kg, almost half a kilo less than the previous edition. The engine itself has been tilted back and the sprocket dropped by 3mm with new cylinder internals and crankshaft optimisation as other markers of the 2023 set-up. PANKL Racing Systems have supplied a redesigned five-speed gearbox with a new transmission ratio. Another feature is the fresh Quickshift sensor on the shift drum for clutchless upshifts (which can also be disabled through the handlebar switch). The Keihin Engine Management System administers the traction control, launch control and quickshift actions and the ability to flick between two customisable engine maps.

Throwing the whole package into place on-track is now simpler with new ergonomics and the sculpted rider ‘triangle’ that permits even better contact points between motorcycle and user. A recessed grip ‘pocket’ under the seat is another example of the fine-tuned practicality. There won’t be better or harder-looking bike on the track than the 2023 KTM 450 SMR. The 1990s-derived splash of purple adds to the READY TO RACE graphic vibe together with the flat orange seat and white tail.

A very limited number of the 2023 KTM 450 SMR will be available from June 2022.

2023 KTM 450 SMR technical highlights
// New anti-squat frame concept for unbeatable agility, sensitivity and stability
// Lighter and more durable 63 hp engine package for peerless power-to-weight ratio
// New generation advanced and easy-adjustable WP Suspension
// Searing braking components from Brembo
// Performance-led parts from footpegs, compact exhaust system, electronics, wheels and tyres
// Improved ergonomics to accentuate agility and centralisation: better lap-times
// Unmistakable race-orientated graphics and one of KTM’s best colour schemes yet for the Supermoto market

TOTAL TERRAIN DOMINATION

INTRODUCING THE 2023 KTM ENDURO RANGE

KTM has dominated Enduro competition for a number of decades, with the newest iteration of the 2023 KTM EXC and EXC-F models set to continue the trend. Boasting an updated design, orange-coated Chromoly steel frame, race-proven WP XPLOR suspension at each end, and real READY TO RACE credentials, the 2023 KTM Enduro range is the one to beat.

Offering the most extensive READY TO RACE competition Enduro lineup on the market, starting with the enduro underdog KTM 150 EXC 2-Stroke and topping out with the class-leading power KTM 500 EXC-F 4-Stroke, the 2023 KTM Enduro range caters to all riders and terrains.

New for 2023, an all-new graphic design and white, purple and orange colour scheme come together into a seamlessly blended palette. This colour scheme was specifically chosen by the designers to pay homage to the early ‘90s enduro models, setting the 2023 KTM Enduro range apart from anything else on the trails.

The looks are further emphasised with the use of a race-inspired orange-coated Chromoly steel frame. Not only does this echo the styling on full-factory race machines but provides the perfect backbone to set off the 2023 graphics pack.

In terms of engines, the 2-Stroke model range once again takes its place and is the leader in the paddock, making use of KTM’s patented Transfer Port Injection (TPI) technology. Not only has this ensured fewer emissions and fuel consumption but provides smooth and strong power delivery from the bottom right through to the top end of the rev-range.

The 4-Stroke model range provides the most concise offering of models, starting with the KTM 250 EXC-F and KTM 350 EXC-F and topping out with the powerhouses KTM 450 EXC-F and KTM 500 EXC-F. All models in the 4-Stroke range benefit from class-winning engines, engineered to deliver massive torque down low with class-leading power delivery at higher RPMs.

These are flanked by the ever-popular KTM EXC SIX DAYS range, which offers a special tribute to the upcoming 2022 FIM International Six Days Enduro in France, combining the very latest in innovation with an extensive list of race-derived parts as standard.

Every motorcycle in the range gets fully adjustable WP XPLOR suspension as standard, with the advantage of a Progressive Damping System (PDS) on the rear. The PDS layout – a staple across KTM EXC and EXC-F models, offers lower maintenance due to fewer moving parts, but provides more ground clearance, with less chance of hooking up when climbing logs or rocks.

As always, and thanks to KTM’s global network of dealers, the availability of support and parts needed to compete at the highest level are easily accessible, with the added availability of dedicated KTM PowerWear and KTM PowerParts designed to allow for the highest levels of performance, protection, and mobility for all offroad riders and racers.

The 2023 KTM Enduro range is derived from years at the top level of offroad racing and brings together a dynamic combination of race-bred performance, ergonomics and technology ready to tackle any terrain.

NOTHING HAS CHANGED

GET SERIOUS WITH THE 2023 KTM SX

How do you better dominance?
Like any champion racer we search every single corner for gains, for performance and for perfection The 2023 KTM SXs will reshape the market as well as riders’ expectations. We haven’t changed our approach for outright excellence, so that means we’ve changed quite a bit for 2023.

We still have 12 models that scale from electric learner bikes through to two-stroke minicycles (50, 65, 85cc) to larger two-stroke thrillers at 125, 250 and 300cc capacity. The KTM SX-Fs consist of 250, 350 and 450 four-strokes. A potential AMA 450SX winner or MXGP world champion can grow in orange from his or her first metres on the dirt right up until those last few corners as a winner at the very highest level. So, we have the bikes but why jump into the family? Why embrace the KTM DNA? Well, the KTM SXs are the most powerful in each class and have the finest components. They are the most race focused.

Racing enables us to empower you. The 2023 KTM SXs are sleeker, slimmer, more controllable and the most desirable. They our best expression of the ultimate motocross race so we’re ready for when you want to get really serious.

Behind the gate: Preparation and equipment
We are market leaders with the use of cutting-edge ideas and technology throughout our motorcycle portfolio and the 2023 KTM SXs are primed. Partnerships with companies such as KEIHIN, PANKL, and Brembo means performance possibilities have expanded. The 2023 KTM SX range will count on two maps (one standard, softer and linear power and another for a more aggressive response), launch control*, traction control*, a roll-over sensor for large crashes, an hourmeter as standard with electronic fuel injection status and a fuel indicator through the Keihin engine management system. Other preparatory steps come through the tool-free adjustments now possible with the latest spec WP Suspension engineering. New 7.2 litre polythene fuel tanks can be filled (feeding into the protected one-piece fuel pump and filter) and a quick spin of the Excel alloy wheel rims is quicker and easier to check thanks to the fresh spoke nipple design. You’re READY TO RACE.

Gate-drop and surging into action
Fired up with the electric starter (on all models) KTM SXs hammer along the straight and into the corners and jumps with aplomb. Our engine packages are more compact, more durable, more serviceable and offer the best power-to-weight ratio across the board.

New cylinder heads translates into performance gains but rearwards rotation of the engines by 2 degrees has given better centralization and a more profound effect for the chassis concept. Brand new 5-speed PANKL Racing Systems transmissions with an additional sensor for the four-strokes mean that up-shifts (from 2nd gear onwards) are slicker thanks to the Quickshifter function. The Quickshifter can be disabled with a switch on the handlebar but a weight-optimised shift shaft in the transmission itself means that the operating force of the change is now less and, therefore, easier. A Brembo hydraulic clutch ensures top-of-the-range dependability whatever the conditions.

With our 2-strokes, less carbs = more muscle. We’ve graced our KTM SXs with a new electronic fuel injection to ensure simplicity, enjoyment and uniqueness. Therefore, the SXs get a new 39mm throttle body with injectors positioned for pinpoint response. A ‘remix to the premix’ counts on a TPS-sensor for better behavior while idle and for the fuel-air mixture (not forgetting the cold start mechanism which is the same as the KTM SX-Fs). The effect is more: more power, more response, more assurance, more ease, more fun.

Finding the flow then attack the track
The demands of competition, fitness and the track set the tone for any moto. It’s in the depths of this hard, physical stage of a race when the connection and feeling with any motorcycle can make the difference and fully harness the excitement and fulfilment. We’ve taken our chassis and frame design principles back to the core and have sought better dynamics, stability and strength. Longitudinal rigidity is a key phrase and with accentuated rider feeling coming through an anti-squat philosophy. This has been achieved by a new frame and mounts, subframe, swingarm, engine repositioning, ergonomics and WP Suspension tech.

The frame is hydro-formed, laser-cut and robot-welded. the wall thickness has been optimised to achieve improved rigidity in specific high stress areas such as the steering head and all new shock mounts. The KTM SX two-strokes have new parallel frame mounts. The design is sportier with sights on extra agility; an example comes through the new inwardly moved footpegs for even greater clearance in ruts and for dropping the bike flat for scrubs. New footpegs are even larger in surface area, even if the die casting means they are lighter than before. Stiffness has been dialed with lighter die cast hollow swingarms (new casting processes allow for even more weight saving) and a new rear axle.

The WP Suspension XACT shock is shorter and lighter. The internal flow of liquids is more flush, reliable and resistant, and the shock’s smaller dimensions lower the chances of pollutants and dirt intrusion. The shape permits higher ground clearance with the linkage and advanced damping means better traction as the bike swallows the bumps with the new geometry setting. Entering corners or landing jumps, any KTM SX can take full profit from WP XACT forks with AER air technology featuring a new hydrostop for more effective performance and more bottoming resistance.

The 2023 KTM SXs are narrower and honed, but we have managed to increase contact area and surfaces to allow even more input into the handling of the bike. The flat orange seat – offering excellent grip and  greater control – and the reworked front fender are other identifiable marks. The mud flaps of the fender prevents excessive dirt being flicked up towards the rider and the radiator in particularly wet conditions.

Finishing the moto strong
You’ve gone faster and longer than ever, but any Pro racer will tell you that the last two or three laps of any moto are key. This is where the versatility and usability of the new KTM SXs are further fortes. The rate of energy absorption is high thanks to the forgiving chassis and other components such as the fresh CNC milled triple clamps with optimised bar mounts and wider grip surface area. This leads to less handlebar twist. The whole unit is protected by a new number plate design. The subframe is now a finely engineered hybrid thanks to polyamide reinforced aluminum, applying strength into the lower part of the frame and extending flexibility for control and comfort in upper sections. The subframe has been designed with advanced finite element analysis and weighs less than two kilos.

Count on the last centimetres of traction and performance provided by the Dunlop GEOMAX MX33 tires; chosen for the 2023 KTM SX line-up after a careful testing and selection process.

Once across the finish line it will be time to recover, to reset and to think about the next outing. At this point riders will consider mods and this is when accompanying KTM PowerParts and KTM PowerWear will have you covered. Riding gear, protection, extra parts and much more can be found and have been especially crafted for our 2023 KTM SX incarnations.

Welcome to the future. But don’t just take our word for it, watch out for a very special and exclusive video series on KTM digital channels to further breakdown the 2023 KTM SX range.

Say hello to the two new red-hot singles in town – the GASGAS SM 700 and the GASGAS ES 700! Introducing the playful and vibrant GASGAS character to the street, these high-performance siblings deliver a distinct, upright, and inviting approach to riding. With powerful single-cylinder motors, razor-sharp handling, and the latest rider aids, enjoying city streets and offroad adventures has never been so much fun!

  • GASGAS hits the streets with SM 700 and ES 700!
  • Confident and inviting offroad-inspired centered riding position
  • GET ON THE GAS with playful, big-bore, single-cylinder bikes

Just like with our offroad bikes, the introduction of the GASGAS SM 700 and the GASGAS ES 700 is all about bringing something a little different to the party, bringing bikes that put a smile on people’s faces. With distinct, reliable, high-performance bikes that reflect our Spanish heritage and fun-loving personality, we welcome every kind of rider and encourage them to GET ON THE GAS!

Re-establishing ourselves as a leading force in offroad racing and riding during the last two years, in successfully introducing a complete offroad line-up we quickly went from being the new kids to picking up race wins and championship trophies. But it’s not just the offroad world we’re interested in. Just like we did in the dirt, we’re again looking to re-establish ourselves, and have some serious fun on the street!

GASGAS street bikes benefit from an agile, high-performance technical base. Designed to deliver the very best handling, and constructed at the lowest possible weight, the chromium-molybdenum steel trellis frame ensures razor-sharp cornering and straight-line stability. Further enhancing the riding experience of these super singles, a die-cast aluminum swingarm offers just the right amount of flex to transfer the unrestricted power to the ground, while a 13.5 liter fuel tank integrated into the polyamide subframe keeps the center of gravity as low as possible. For total control and stability when drifting into the corners, the latest Bosch ABS systems and a PASC slipper clutch balances the bike perfectly for precise turning.

The beating heart of these bikes is undoubtedly the motors! Producing a peak 74 horsepower at 8,000 rpm and pumping out serious torque numbers, you can ride these versatile bikes your own way. Beneath the fresh red livery, which aligns these street models perfectly with our EC and MC line-up, there’s plenty of hidden magic going on. State-of-the-art electronics always ensure precise throttle response with power on tap, while smooth shifting up and down the six-speed gearbox is assured thanks to the integrated quickshifter.

Complete with the latest EURO 5 compliant exhaust systems, advanced Ride Modes, and assembled with quality components throughout, the GASGAS SM 700 and ES 700 deliver pure riding pleasure, both on and off the road.
