KTM 125 XC-W 2019

Produktinfo

MINIMAL FUSS, MAXIMUM FUN

In the world of entry-level enduro, the KTM 125 XC-W reigns supreme. Boasting an incredibly strong 2-stroke motor and an equally impressive lightweight chassis, the 125 XC-W is a master of difficult terrain. This model is a race-ready bike built for closed course enduro races without homologation restrictions.

Motor og eksos

Motor og Eksos

The KTM 125 XC-W engine is the most powerful and most competitive engine in the 125 cc enduro class. Providing the type of power delivery riders want, the 125 XC-W motor has been engineered to be both a screaming rocket on the top end, and a torquey chugger on the bottom.

TRANSMISSION

A wide-ratio 6-speed Enduro transmission was designed specifically for the small 2-stroke Enduro engine, its gear ratios perfectly in sync with the 125’s power band. The latest production technologies allowed for compact dimensions and minimal weight. Keeping safety in mind, an advanced ´No Dirt´ gear shift lever design prevents muck from blocking the joint. Because […]

PISTON

This little gem is optimized for maximal reliability and its shape fits brilliantly to the state-of-the-art cylinder layout.

IGNITION

All 2-stroke models feature a CDI control unit with an advanced hardware which improves the starting behavior of the engine. The ignition curves remain unchanged.

EXHAUST

The engineers meticulously tuned the pipe for maximum power, so this little screamer is as tough as it is strong.

CYLINDER

This compact cylinder with a 54mm bore features a cutting-edge power valve unit with a sophisticated mechanism for the lateral support exhaust ports. Matched to a twin-component cylinder head, it is KTM’s secret to all-round grunt. The layout of the water jackets in the cylinder and head guarantees efficient heat dissipation when the going gets […]

CRANKSHAFT

A reliable piece of engineering that has been skillfully balanced to guarantee minimal vibrations. It allows a decrease of the displacement to 125cc just by replacing cylinder, piston and head. There’s no more need to change the crankshaft. Two-in-one in no time.

CRANKCASES AND ENGINE COVERS

Lightweight, die-cast crankcases featuring a high crankshaft and clutch shaft position, located close to the center of gravity, which results in optimal mass centralization and outstanding rideability. In addition, the engine body is extremely lightweight and compact, while still able to house an E-starter. And because looks matter, the engine covers feature an advanced surface […]

COOLING

KTM’s proven cooling system routes the coolant from the cylinder head through the frame triangle, directly to aluminum radiators made by WP. Thanks to flow optimized internal circulation and CFD-calculated ventilation, the system is superbly efficient. In addition, the radiator protectors improve heat dissipation. Especially in the mud. They are also integrated into the front […]

CLUTCH

The clutch is activated by a hydraulic system made by Brembo. This reliable and self-adjusting unit guarantees light operation and highly controllable modulation.

CARBURETOR

The KTM 125 XC-W is fitted with a MIKUNI TMX carburetor. This 38mm flat slide carb lives to provide smooth and controllable power all the way up to the rev limitation.

Chassi

Chassi

When it comes to this class of motorcycle, weight is everything. Good thing, then, that KTM engineers have managed to splice together a long list of weight-saving tactics to ensure the 125 XC-W is the slimmest, lightest 125 in the enduro stables.

WHEELS

The KTM 125 XC-W wheels feature lightweight, CNC machined hubs and high-end Giant rims guaranteeing maximum stability at minimum weight. The wheels are fitted with the latest MAXXIS tires. Take them wherever you like, traction will be waiting.

TRIPLE CLAMP

The XC-Ws are fitted with forged triple clamps with an offset of 22mm, ensuring a solid grip of the fork and precise handling. The handlebar is adjustable forwards and backwards over 4 positions, so the XC-W will fit you like your favorite gloves.

SWINGARM

This design allows for an optimized mounting position of the PDS shock absorber, providing more progressive action. Furthermore, the cast aluminum design guarantees low weight and a perfect flex behavior. The single-component casting process also eliminates any inconsistencies and inherent weak points created by welding. And it’s better looking.

REAR SUSPENSION

The PDS is kind of a KTM trademark where the shock absorber is directly connected to the upper side of the swingarm. This setup boasts the best possible mounting geometry and provides amazingly progressive damping. The shock absorber is mounted close to the centerline, which means nearly symmetrical loads for the swingarm and frame and […]

FUEL TANK

A lightweight polyethylene tank with a capacity of 9.5 liters. You will always be able to see how much fuel there’s left at a glance, thanks to the see-through plastic. By pushing the orange release button in the center of the fuel tank cap, the bayonet mechanism makes refueling quick and easy.

FRONT SUSPENSION

The WP XPlor 48 upside-down fork is a split fork developed by WP in close collaboration with KTM. It is fitted with a spring on both sides but features separated functions for each fork leg: compression damping is fitted on the left side, while rebound is on the right. The forks can easily be adjusted […]

FRAME

The high-tech, lightweight chrome-moly steel frame has a knack for easy handling, outlandish rideability, precise cornering and excellent stability. You can also count on high torsional rigidity and low longitudinal stiffness. This results in better absorption of the energy created from the front and rear suspension sucking up jumps and bumps. In short: more comfort […]

BRAKES

You can’t brake any harder, better, faster or stronger. High-tech Brembo calipers are combined with lightweight Wave brake discs. The steel-flex front brake hose has efficient protection and there’s an integrated channel for the speedometer cable. First you outrun them, then you outbrake them.

AIRBOX

The air filter box design offers maximum protection of the air filter against soiling, while ensuring maximum airflow in a quiet way. The large Twin Air filter is mounted in a stiff cage, which at the same time holds the system in place. This design is so simple, you could still pop a fresh one […]

Ergonomi og komfort

Ergonomi og komfort

With input from top factory racers, KTM has ensured that the ergonomics across the XC-W range are perfectly suited for faster terrain, allowing riders to move more freely while keeping the throttle pinned wide open.

HANDLEBAR

KTM engineers know how to handle handlebars. This tapered unit, made of high-strength aluminum by NEKEN, features a throttle assembly with a robust aluminum body and easy free-play adjustment. An ODI volcanized grip sits on the right, while on the left side of the bar a comfortable ODI lock-on grip requires no glue or wire […]

FOOTPEGS

Sophisticated ´No Dirt´ footpegs prevent smudging up the pegs, even when digging in deep ruts. The pegs on the Enduro models are 6mm higher than the ones used on SX versions, which benefits ground clearance. But you can swap them at will.

Bodywork og dekaler

Bodywork og dekaler

Aggression is the name of the game when it comes to the KTM XC range. Sharing the same winning characteristics as the rest of the 2019 KTM offroad range, the 125 XC-W is 100% READY TO RACE with perfect ergonomics and contact points to provide maximum comfort and movement.

DECALS

New graphics convey the READY TO RACE character of the 2019 KTM XC-W model line.
