KTM’S ALL-NEW 2014 250R
TWO-STROKE TRAIL BIKE
Powered by a detuned 250 EXC
two-stroke engine, the Freeride
250R’s engine has an exhaust pipe
that looks more like a trials bike pipe
instead of the motocross pipe. The
250R frame is a composite design of
stainless steel sections, bolt-on forged-
aluminum components, and a polymer
plastic subframe. The engine’s excess
heat is dissipated by a single-piece
radiator integrated deeply behind the
frame spars for protection. A thermo-
stat-controlled fan runs when the
speeds are low. The tires are a 2.75-
21 front and a 4.00-18 rear in the
Trial Universal pattern of the old
days. This KTM trail bike will not be
sold in the USA.
KTM’s original plan was to make
an electric version and detuned
350 four-stroke version of the
switched to a 250cc two-stroke.
more power=more fun!
