KTM 2t EFI?

From Wikipedia:

"In recent interviews KTM has revealed that they will continue to produce and improve 2-stroke bikes and have already begun looking at EFI (Electronic Fuel Injection). EFI will benefit the 2 stroke bikes because they will become more fuel efficient and will also produce less waste."

Any merit to this?

Look at SeaDoo and what they are doing on snowmobles. They have part of the fuel being directly injected in to the cylinder head. They idle very clean. It's a great setup.

Lot's of merit. Direct injection is already worked out for snowmobiles,outboards and jetskis. Perfect jetting on a twostroke dirt bike can be a chore due to weather and altitude changes. Much cleaner emmisions and less fuel used.

Rumors of KTM selling the bike has been around for 2-3 years or more.

To get a good idea of the possibilities, look at the current line of Evinrude 2T outboard motors.

I was talking to a local KTM dealer about the 250 and 300 XC's who mentioned the 2014 2 strokes may come with FI. Anybody heard anything like this about the 2014's?

Lotsa riders are wanting 2 strokes these days,trailriders in particular.

3 or 4 rebuilds on a neato ultra high tech 4 stroke pretty much turns guys away from them,not to mention there's no big advantage to dragging a heavier prone to overheating 4 stroke around the woods.

Im hoping KTM breaks the 300cc barrier and comes out with an FI 400 or bigger 2 stroke,Im pretty sure they would sell out as quick as their other 2 strokes.

The 2014 models are already out and they do not have FI.

It probably wouldn't matter anyway, Commiefornia would most likely never certify it or at the very least Red sticker it.

I would think KTM could get their 2-strokes 50 state legal if they wanted to, they have always done so in Europe which has just as strict emissions standards. They do it by reducing power to around 5 HP, jetting super lean, putting a cat into the expansion chamber, etc.

Guess there is not enough demand to justify the expense of DOT certifications etc.

My take on FI'ed 2-stoke dirt bike's - It's all just speculation - until it's not. Ossa and Husky have been promising a FI'ed 2-stroke Enduro for over a year now. I still have not seen one. Getting into the US market is going to be tough for anybody who attempts it

You can buy one from:
www.langsoffroad.com

I saw it in the flesh in Rob Lang's spot in the Toronto Motorcycle Show.

So if one really wants one....

Cheers!
