The KTM 250 SX-F was primed for global domination and is set to continue its dominance with more innovative changes. Not only is it the lightest bike in its class, but it also offers unrivalled, confidence-inspiring power delivery, making it a great choice for both amateur and professional riders. Laying the power down effectively is the secret to fast lap times and this capable package has all the right credentials to get the most important job done - getting to the chequered flag first.
As power is relative to weight, KTM engineers have worked tirelessly to produce an engine with class-leading power and the lowest weight in the MX2 category. The end result is a motorcycle that sets the class benchmark for power-to-weight ratio and is the strongest in MX2 competition. With many updates, including valve timing, exhaust, airbox and EMS (engine management system), the power unit produces more torque and power across the entire rev range than ever before. Its compact architecture contributes to excellent mass centralization, which supports the easy rideability of the bike. In short, the combination of a compact engine layout and unrivalled power makes the new KTM 250 SX-F an undisputed winner once again.
Every rider knows that when the feeling on the bike is good, the ride is awesome. The chassis forms an integral part of this "feeling" and has been designed to provide accurate feedback between track and rider, while also reducing the harshness of typical motocross terrain. The KTM 250 SX-F features a new lightweight, high-tech steel frame that not only provides a great feeling, but has been optimized for more accurate rider feedback. The new flex characteristics provide excellent agility and high-speed stability, contributing to an intuitive ride like no other.
It is important for a rider to work in harmony with the motorcycle, maintaining momentum by moving together with the natural forces. KTM has focused extensively on ergonomics that are optimal for high-level performance, ensuring a neutral riding position that offers the best maneuverability and control. The handlebar position can also be adjusted to suit every rider size and ergonomic preference. A rider's main interaction with the motorcycle comes through the bodywork, seat, footpegs and handlebars, which all play a vital role in overall control. When it comes to ergonomics, absolutely no compromises were made and only the best quality products feature on the 2019 SX models.
KTM's 4-stroke motocross bikes are the industry benchmark when it comes to innovative technology and styling. With input from KTM's factory riders, as well as KTM R&D and Kiska Design, the new bodywork of the KTM 250 SX-F pushes the boundaries of progression even further. The result is a shape that achieves complete harmony between rider and bike and features across the entire SX range. The main goal was to provide the optimal contact points that allow a rider maximum freedom of movement and improved handling. The front and rear fenders feature an intelligent I-beam design, guaranteeing maximum stability with the lowest possible weight. The new graphics add to the fast and aggressive style of the bike and also confirms KTM's never-ending quest for race-winning progression.
4-strokes have defined the modern era of motocross and KTM have used the SX-F range to push the boundaries of innovation. To stay ahead in the competitive MX2 class, KTM equipped the 250 SX-F with a multifunctional handlebar map switch. The unit activates innovative features like traction control, launch control and even alternative power curves. KTM's engineers have pushed performance to the extreme, making electronics a necessary progression that ensures power is delivered in the most effective way. KTM SX-F models also feature other unique advantages, like the proven electric starter. Now, more than ever, READY TO RACE performance is just the push of a button away.
