KTM 250 EXC TPI 2022

The KTM 250 EXC TPI 2022 is an off-road motorcycle introduced by KTM, an Austrian motorcycle brand. It belongs to the EXC lineup, which is specifically designed for enduro riding and competition. The 250 EXC TPI stands out for its advanced fuel injection technology, providing improved performance, fuel efficiency, and reduced emissions.

The 2022 KTM 250 EXC TPI is powered by a 249cc, single-cylinder, 2-stroke engine with fuel injection. The TPI (Transfer Port Injection) system precisely injects fuel into the engine’s transfer ports, enhancing throttle response and overall engine performance. This technology eliminates the need for a carburetor, resulting in smoother power delivery and improved fuel efficiency compared to traditional carbureted engines.

The motorcycle features a lightweight and durable chromoly steel frame designed for optimal handling and stability. It incorporates high-quality suspension components, including a WP XPLOR front fork and a WP XPLOR PDS rear shock absorber. These components offer excellent damping and adjustability to tackle a variety of off-road terrains.

The braking system of the KTM 250 EXC TPI 2022 consists of high-performance Brembo hydraulic disc brakes. These brakes provide reliable stopping power and precise control in demanding off-road conditions.

In terms of ergonomics, the KTM 250 EXC TPI is designed to provide a comfortable and controlled riding experience. It features a slim and maneuverable design, allowing riders to navigate through tight trails and obstacles easily. The seat is designed for comfort during longer rides, and the handlebars are positioned for optimal control and leverage.

As an enduro motorcycle, the KTM 250 EXC TPI 2022 is equipped with off-road-specific features. These may include a skid plate to protect the engine and frame from rocks and debris, handguards to shield the rider’s hands, a larger capacity fuel tank for extended riding range, and a headlight and taillight for legal and safe riding on public roads.

It’s important to note that while the information provided here is based on the general specifications and features of the KTM 250 EXC TPI 2022 model, it is always recommended to consult the official documentation or reach out to KTM or their authorized dealers for the most accurate and up-to-date information regarding specifications, features, and availability.

Protective clothing
Risk of injury Missing or poor protective clothing presents an increased safety risk.

  • Wear appropriate protective clothing such as helmets, boots, gloves as well as trousers, and a jacket with protectors on all rides. Always wear protective clothing that is in good condition and meets the legal regulations. In the interest of your own safety, KTM recommends that you only operate the vehicle while wearing protective clothing.

Work rules
Unless specified otherwise, the ignition must be turned off during all work (models with the ignition lock, models with remote key) or the engine must be at a standstill (models without ignition lock or remote key). Special tools are necessary for certain tasks. The tools are not a component of the vehicle but can be ordered using the number in parentheses.
Example: bearing puller (15112017000) During assembly, use new parts to replace parts that cannot be reused (e.g. self-locking screws and nuts, expansion screws, seals, sealing rings, O-rings, pins, and lock washers). In the case of certain screws, a screw adhesive (e.g. Loctite®) is required. Observe the manufacturer’s instructions. If a thread locker (e.g., Precote®) has already been applied to a new part, do not apply any additional thread locker. After disassembly, clean the parts that are to be reused and check them for damage and wear. Change damaged or worn parts. After completing a repair or service work, check the operating safety of the vehicle.

If you use your motorcycle responsibly, you can ensure that problems and conflicts do not occur. To protect the future of the motorcycle sport, make sure that you use your motorcycle legally, display environmental consciousness, and respect the rights of others. When disposing of used oil, other operating and auxiliary fluids, and used components, comply with the laws and regulations of the respective country. Because motorcycles are not subject to the EU regulations governing the disposal of used vehicles, there are no legal regulations that pertain to the disposal of an end-of-life motorcycle. Your authorized KTM dealer will be glad to advise you.
