On a scale of hardcore, cross-country firepower, the 2022 KTM 250 XC TPI rates as a 11. Sharing most of its DNA with the KTM 250 SX, it boasts the same awesome 2-stroke acceleration and top-end scream but merges that with a remarkably lightweight chassis, fuel-injection technology, and an 18” rear wheel. This means it totally decimates the competition off the line but has the legs to keep the fight going.
