So nothing really new except for the preload adjuster and map switches (which the white bikes come with already)?

Sounds like pretty minor changes for 2021 in the XC-W, XCF-W and EXC-F lines.  I wonder if the XC line will get a larger overhaul this year.

Doc

I was wondering the same. When do they usually release info for the XC line?

No, it says "bold, new graphics", so pretty much "all new"! 🤪

Three fitty don't have no revised/updated CCT. If they's not updatin' it; it must be too good to fail. :ride:

The splash of gray harkens back to the 98-00 models. They're running out of BNG just like Yamaha. :D

My 2018 is treating me so good, I'm going to keep her another year. Have been on a 3 year cycle forever, but this one deserves a fourth.

Won't hurt to let KTM perfect TPI a little more....maybe grab a leftover 2021 next spring if their giving deals.

Looks like nothing changed with the TPI’s. Same as 2020?

The items I mentioned above look like they apply to the 2t bikes as well.

No, the map switch is optional just like in 2020.

Same here, my 2018 350 has treated me really well something about those even year bikes.  Been eyeing a TPI 300 for awhile now, might wait one more year as well.

The Marketing Department outdid themselves for 2021. Not much substance other than buzzwords beyond this:

The 2021 KTM Enduro portfolio is set apart by its fresh and truly READY TO RACE graphic scheme and updated color palette,

The "optional" map switch have been optional on Orange bikes for years. Blue ones come with the switch. The wiring harness of my 2017 is ready to plug the switch in.

^ This response was sarcasm in regards to a lot of long winded marketing hype for not much more than Bold New Graphics.
