For the first time since 2014, I feel like I can't live without an XC-W. Many of my rides have gotten slower and more technical. For that type of riding the XC-W is king. No Linkage to worry about, soft forks, tight turning, lug factor,... smooth power.... it's all here on those days that I need it.
From what I can tell, the only things they changed for 2021 are plastics.
Geometry tweaks in the front end and frame
- More XC like in it's balance and feel
- New Frame for 2020! SWEET. It is stupid good.
- more balanced front to back - no more stink bug effect
Suspension tweaks
- best fork KTM has ever put on the XC-W
- absorbs the sharp nasty stuff really well
- can still get out and hit whoops but you use a lot of stroke.
- doesn't deflect!
Motor tweaks
- 2020 mapping starts SO MUCH BETTER than the 2019 version. Huge step up here
- many of these are really snappy, so much so that I stay with the gray throttle cam
- remember to tune your power valve to your liking. The all come different.

- Rear fender setup
- No kickstart
- Power valve leak - many of the 2020 and 2021 bikes leak transmission fluid slowly out of the power valve gaskets
- Air bypass screw is stupid for adjusting the idle - give us a real way to adjust the idle without leaning the mix.
- No spark arrestor on these bikes
- Radiators can get pushed back and cut the lower radiator hose (power valve puncture)
- Needs an aftermarket capacitor to bump start on dead battery. XC has it... why not the XC-W?
- Tightest turning radius of any bike I've ever ridden. Love this for the nasty stuff.
- Motors are the smoothest (least vibration of any in the industry). Runs SUPER clean.
- Oil reservoir gives you 5+ tanks of fuel.
- Starts great - ambient air pressure sensor hasn't skipped a beat for me
- Suspension rings allow you to see how much travel you are using.
- Air filters standard across all the big bikes
- air filters with no tools
- One bolt seat is nice
- Lock on grips
- Pipes are tucked up and away
- Pipes are strong - won't get better performance with aftermarket.

  • 6:14 - as Billy Bolt mentioned, a lot of pro Hard Enduro riders (other than being mandatory using it) they run the tail light and licence plate holder because it's another way you can grab the bike , with that's extra plastic underneath (on Huskys and Katies). Of course it's not ideal, but just wanted to let you know. I know you guys in the States like to get those "XC-W's" (they're called EXC's here in Europe) naked but that's one of the reasons we don't (AND of course because we can ride them in the streets too). ;-)

  • Great review and I’m picking up my 2021, 250 XCW TPI in a week or two here in Michigan I can’t wait I really appreciated the review on it and what to do and what not to do with it I’ve waited three years for this bike my uncle bought a 300 last year at the end of the season and he loves it so I can’t wait to get mine home. Thanks 🙏🏻 again ok 👌🏼🔥🤠🔥Camping Russ out

  • Great channel but running less oil effectively runs a bike richer, not leaner. Rich and lean are terms related to Air/Fuel ratio, not premix ratios. Lean means more air than fuel,.

  • go ahead drink the TPI kool aid... if you are constantly fiddling with your carb it is because YOU failed to set it right in the first place. TPI only expensive way to mix 14lbs of air to 1lbs of fuel...when you keep your bike for more than 10 minutes (like Dirt Bike Channel) you learn to appreciate not needing a engineering degree from MIT to fix your fuel problems. TPI is just another way to fool the public into buying the "NEW AND IMPROVED" my 35 year old bike with upgraded suspension has carbureted perfectly for...34 years. wait till your hornets nest of chips capacitors and wires is 30 years old; good luck

Said you just need to get better at riding if your playing with settings every ride unless its because its unsafe. Grass is always greener on the other settings lol.

Why no kick starter kits? I had one installed on both my 2020 Husky 300 TEi and KTM 250 XCWi. The kit is about $200 - 225 so comparatively, it's not a break the bank investment. Just curious.

  • This might be a dumb comment but, you mentioned that these bikes use less oil and therefore run leaner? I thought that more oil is leaner because the gas is thicker. Less oil is rich because it is dumping more gas. I could totally be wrong here.

    James ApplequistJames ApplequistUukausi sitten
    • You're confusing two different things. There is the Oil/Fuel mixture, which can be rich or lean, and the air/fuel mixture, which can also be rich or lean. Having a rich oil/fuel mixture will tend to lean out the air/fuel mixture.

      ZacharyZacharyUukausi sitten
    • Yes you are wrong. The oil is what makes it super rich. More oil is like putting more chocolate in milk. The more chocolate in the milk the richer it is.

    • The suspension is different and the third gear is longer in the EXC. The front suspension on the EXC is spring type, the XC is an air system. The XC uses linkage in the rear suspension and the EXC does not and has more clearance. The EXC also has lighting in the front. There are a few other small differences. Hope that helps.

    • You are correct. Don't fall in love with TPI to the point where you don't look at anything else. The carb bikes are amazing too.

  • Kyle, its about time you brought in a new 350 xc-f. They have changed a ton since your last one and just may be the best all around bike there is. Keep at least one 4 stroke in your stable!

    • I just bought a 2021 350 XC-F for my son. What a machine! Very easy to ride, but an absolute beast when you grab a hand-full of throttle. The 350 feels a little heavier than my 300XCW even though it weighs a few pounds less. In fast terrain I fell like I could ride the 350 XC-F quite a bit faster than my 300 XCW. Maybe Kyle should get a 350 XC-F every year instead of the usual 250 XC for faster riding conditions.
