2012 KTM 125 EXC Six Days Review

2012 KTM 125 EXC Six Days Review
• Camel SXS seat for improved long-distance comfort

• Engine guard made of high-strength plastic for protecting engine case and frame down tubes

• Carbon exhaust protectors for protecting the exhaust expansion chamber

• CNC-machined, orange-anodised triple clamps for high-precision clamping of the fork tubes in favour of optimum sliding of the telescopic fork

• Knock-out wheel spindle for easier removal of the front wheel

• Full brake disc at the rear for improved heat resistance and therefore reduced pad wear

• Rear brake disc protector for protecting the brake disc from mechanical damage

• Quick-change brake pad securing bolts at the rear for quicker changing of brake pads without tools

• Aluminium rear sprocket with riveted-on steel ring gear for a combination of reduced weight and increased durability

• Wheels with black-anodised, extremely robust Giant rims and spokes with a high-quality, black tin-nickel coating.

• The same design as the KTM factory bikes thanks to Six Days graphics, orange powder-coated frame, orange anodised triple clamps, orange anodised handlebars and anthracite anodised silencer

BODYWORK, KICKSTARTER
PLAYFUL HANDLING
NEW FRAME
TELESCOPIC FORK, NEW SETTING
The sensitive responsiveness and outstanding damping of the open-cartridge fork with 48 mm (1.89 in) outer tubes are a perfect complement for the 125 EXC's playful handling and precision.
NEW WHEELS
Practically unbeatable in terms of weight and stability, the new wheels have CNC-machined hubs, new black-anodised rims from Giant, black zinc/nickel-coated spokes and ultra-light aluminium nipples.
NEW INTAKE SNORKEL, NEW AIRBOX
NEW EXHAUST EXPANSION CHAMBER
The 125 EXC's new exhaust expansion chamber has not only improved in quality; in conjunction with the two-stroke machine's exhaust control system, its optimised soundbox ensures an extra shot of engine power - explosive, but dependable.
