Dirt Rider magazine has an interesting project in the works: “The Rocky Mountains of Colorado call for a certain type of weapon in the form of a linkage-less 300cc two-stroke … in orange of course. Broken down in KTM terminology, we are talking about the 2012 KTM 300 XC-W, and no bashing the 2013 here–we just didn’t have one on hand in the square state. Jim Rios of BRP recently picked up this steed and offered to deck it out from head to toe with an outstanding list of mods that more than prepared our 300 for the trails–technical ones at that,” Dirt Rider’s Chris Green wrote. Click here for an in-depth look at the mods that went into this project KTM. For the full test, dive right into the March issue of Dirt Rider magazine.
