In this article, we talk about the 2023 dirt bike models from KTM.

Here is what we know about the 2023 dirt bike models from KTM!

update….

So MAJOR changes for the SX, SX-F, XC, and XC-F 2023 models from KTM.

These bikes from KTM are all new!! Brand new just about everything it seems…..CRAZY

No 2023 KTM 150SX but instead its we go a 2023 KTM 300SX….

There have been some rumors of a new 2-stroke engine with different TPI / fuel injection along with an electronic power valve. Also, a new frame from KTM which means the KTM SX motocross bikes and possibly the XC cross country bikes will get a new frame as well for 2023.  

So far KTM has only released their Enduro and Dual sport models for 2023. We will have to wait until the first of May for more info. I will continue to update this article as we hear more information from the KTM camp.

Model 2023 KTM Offroad Enduro and Dual Sport Dirt bikes

Looks like the offroad enduro (XCW) and EXC-F Dual Sport dirt bikes for 2023 only got bold new graphics kits. It does not appear there are any changes versus the 2022 models in the enduro XCW and dual sports lineups. (Husqvarna 2023 Models

Is that a bad thing?

Depends if you hated the XCW or dual-sport bikes then yes…..

However, KTM makes some of the best dirt bikes in the industry. I personally love our 2020 KTM 300 XCW TPI and its not all that different than the 2022’s.

So the XCW 2 strokes still come with TPI and oil injection.

The new color scheme was designed to model the early 90’s KTM dirt bikes. So it’s an all-new graphics that have white, purple and orange.

Do all the 2022 dirt bikes carry over to the new KTM 2023 model lineup?

Below is a list and pictures of the new 2023 SX-F, SX, XC, XC-F, XCW and EXC models.
