READY TO RACE (NEXT YEAR’S) ERZBERGRODEO
As we learned back in May, the 2021 Red Bull Erzbergrodeo (which was set to double as Round 2 of the FIM Hard Enduro World Championship on June 3-6) was cancelled for 2021 due to the ongoing complications created by the Covid pandemic. But that hasn’t stopped KTM from forging ahead with the production of its 2022 model 300EXC TPI Erzbergrodeo – a special machine that pays tribute to KTM’s incredible success at the infamous Austria-based event over the past 25 years, and is arguably the most race-ready extreme enduro bike on the market. Here’s what KTM had to say about this new-look 2022-model Erzbergrodeo weapon…
KTM’s relationship with the world-known Red Bull Erzbergrodeo dates back a few decades. This long and successful history dates to the event’s inception in 1995, with KTM riders taking no less than 16 wins since then. To celebrate the wealth of race success already achieved and with a keen eye on future victories, KTM is proud to introduce the 2022 KTM 300EXC TPI Erzbergrodeo as a special tribute to the iconic event.
Using the 2022 edition of the wildly successful fuel-injected KTM 300EXC TPI as a platform, the KTM 300EXC TPI Erzbergrodeo steps up the Ready to Race-ability with several race-inspired upgrades. Taking feedback from elite extreme enduro riders into consideration, the KTM 300EXC TPI Erzbergrodeo is specially built for the toughest off-road terrain across the globe.
Featuring a long list of special protection parts, including closed hand guards, clutch slave cylinder protection, a robust skid plate, brake disc guards and radiator protection, the 2022 KTM 300EXC TPI Erzbergrodeo is developed to withstand the most extreme, jagged rock-hopping scenario.
The 2022 KTM 300EXC TPI Erzbergrodeo also comes with further additions such as factory wheels with anodised orange hubs, enduro-specific pull straps, radiator fan, mapping select switch, CNC machined triple clamps, a grippier Factory seat and a special frame coating in orange for added racing appeal.
