The 2021 KTM 300 XC TPI: The Ultimate Balance Of Power & Weight
The 2021 KTM 300 XC TPI is nothing short of an amazing cross-country racer from the KTM off-road design department. This Austrian-made bike combines the light weight of a steel alloy double cradle frame with the untamed ferocity of a 300cc TPI two-stroke single, to the tune of 55 or more HP, and you have a bike that is meant to not so much cross the country as it is meant to shred it.
Add on top of that that the entire subframe assembly, made out of competition grade aluminum, weighs less than 2 pounds in total, and you’re headed towards a bike that will happily jump down from a ledge as much as it will conquer a steep hill. The fact that the engine will give the immediate power of a two-stroke, with the longevity of a fuel-injected engine, and you can see why the 300 XC TPI is a winner in this year’s lineup.
KTM also gives the bike a semi-close-ratio 6-speed gearbox to get the most longevity from the fuel and the power output. WP shocks are standard, as is a NEKEN aluminum handlebar. On top of it all, KTM has partnered with Continental to provide their engine management systems, and it shows with the simple fact that the 300 XC TPI is faster than pretty much any other bike in its class, with less maintenance needed.
There is also a secondary model of the 300 XC TPI known as the 300 XC-W TPI. The bikes are identical in almost every way, except for the fact that the XC-W comes with full ration gears instead of semi-close. This is particularly useful for first and second gear, giving the rider many more options for slow crawling and technical sections of a cross country race that requires precise throttle and power control.
Both the 2021 KTM 300 XC TPI and 300 XC-W TPI start at $10,199 USD / $11,499 CAD.
