THE BOOKS OF RECORDS KTM has a long, long list of off-road champions. All of them drove the 300 at some point, but were more closely related to another model. Kevin Hines is older than the modern 300 and has only occasionally driven the 273 and 350 of his time. Jeff Russell and Mike Lafferty loved the 300, but drove the 250 more often on the way to their respective national enduro titles. Scott Plessenger took a 250 to his GNCC titles, and while Shane Watts rode a 300 en route to the title in 2000, he also rode every other bike in the KTM lineup, only to say he did. Juha Salminen, David Knight, Kurt Caselli, Russ Pearson and most of KTM`s other famous men rode something different. In EnduroCross, Taddy Blazusiak only recently warmed up for the 300, although his first major win came on a 300 borrowed from Erzberg.

A UNICYCLE CLASS The concept of a Big 250 inspired ktm engineers to try the idea again in 1990. Only this time they put a little more effort into the project.

The bike was eventually offered in different forms: exc (forest), DMX (desert), SX (motocross) and TMX (legal EPA). 1992 was a strange year for KTM. The products had improved considerably. Sales were better than ever. But out of nowhere, the company suddenly filed for bankruptcy.

Everything stopped for a short time while the financial muds performed their black magic and reorganized the entire company. When the smoke cleared, KTM reappeared, seemingly stronger than ever. For several years, the 300 remained in the shadow of the more successful 250EXC, which won one shooting session after another on the pages of Dirt Bike.

It wasn`t a bad unit – it worked well on the 250.

But the 300 has developed a reputation for being inevitable. It was rich and thin at the same time. It wasn`t until 1997 that KTM switched to Kokusan ignitions and almost all of these problems disappeared. The only way to get a 300 plated is to buy one that was legally plated before 2003.

The entire line was completely modified to incorporate what would become KTM`s signature design. unrelated PDS suspension. The design was never well received by the motocross world, but off-roaders loved it and the 300 began to make its move. The following year brought the hydraulic clutch and the 300 was unofficially chosen as the American mountain bike. KTM realized that the 300 became The Bike and began to invest more time and development resources in the engine.

The 2000 version came with a new cylinder, which was significantly improved. In 2004, the engine was again improved with a different bore and stroke; Oddly enough, the 250 and 300 would share the same shot again, but this time it worked better for both bikes. Now, the KTM 250 would absolutely dominate the test bench in the two-stroke comparison, and the 300 was just a quieter, more rotating version of the same. `08 came the electric start and revolutionized the world of two strokes.
