2013 ktm exc

Try this link. http://www.ktm.com/enduro/250-exc-eu/highlights.html

If it doesn't work, go to thumper talk, KTM section

I dont see any change at all from the 2012s but they mention new clutches.

Anyway, the big news is electric start for the 200s

Electric start would be a step backwards on the 200.
It's completely unnecessary extra weight.

I'm thinking about buying a new 250. If I do, I'l be removing the electric start and battery system while it's still new.

Good, the beauty of a 2 banger is its simplicity, no need to go making it more complicated.

While my 2 stroke can go further than most 4 strokes on a tank while making enough power to match pace with them, I see no need to go away from the current setup.

Agree with these sentiments, Whats wrong with a well jetted carb? Once setup you rarely need to make adjustments.

Only advantage of DI 2st I can see is the ability to loose the expansion chamber etc.

Wonder what the cylinder head changes are going to be?
