DROP THE HAMMER
If gold is what youâre after, a KTM 450 SX-F is what you get. Thanks to its compact engine delivering explosive but controllable power, itâs the weapon of choice for the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team and the champion, Ryan Dungey. This READY TO RACE bike rules the AMA Supercross Championship. Its secret? Precise handling and arm-stretching grunt. Winners – line up here.
KTM engineers just love dropping weight year after year. The result: the 2018 KTM SX models are the slimmest, lightest dirt bikes out there. Even though the 4-strokes are equipped with an E-starter as a standard feature, while the competition still needs to be kickstarted. You can just focus on kicking ass.
READY TO RACE ergonomics give you the edge on the track, ride harder for longer.
KTM R&D, KISKA Design and all our factory riders had their say in shaping the plastics with one goal: complete harmony between rider and bike. Perfect ergonomics and contact points provide maximum comfort in movement on the SX-F. The I-beam structures of the front and rear fenders guarantee maximum stability and a low weight thanks to well thought-out construction and mounting. They also stay cleaner for longer.
The latest technology, reduced to the minimum: READY TO RACE
The hugely successful 450 SX-F powerhouse has extremely compact dimensions, strong performance throughout the rev range and a low weight; this is the lightest 450 engine on the MX market. But that doesnât mean itâs not a heavyweight in terms of muscle. Fitted with a single overhead camshaft cylinder head and the latest electronic fuel injection, it pumps out an unrivaled 62hp. With KTMâs engineers working tirelessly to increase service intervals, this super stroker has the latest engine management technology on board and confidently shoots both amateurs and pros to the top of their time sheets.
