KTM Freeride 250 R 2014 – 2 Stroke

KTM Freeride 250R 2 Stroke 2014The decision to add, of all things, a completely new two-stroke model to the brand new Freeride segment may seem strange – but only at first glance. And mostly to those who have not yet had the chance to enjoy the punch of a burly two-stroke within a light and agile off-road chassis. However, those who have had that pleasure know: Such an engine epitomises the kind of response you want from a FREERIDE, because after all, the hot, burning gases hit the piston twice as often. This means that even KTM’s two-stroke enduros, designed for maximum power, churn out gut-wrenching torque from the low rev range in an absolutely glorious manner. And as the FREERIDE 250 R’s engine, true to the Freeriding ideal, is designed not for maximum power, but for a pleasant torque response and optimum rideability, this is where the concept of enjoyable off-roading comes to full fruition.

    KTM better offer the likes of a perimeter steel-aluminium composite frame to the likes of Ryan Dungey and other pros. It’s gotta be on the horizon and hopefully before A1. Thanks MotoDude! Good post!
