SHREDDING WITH NIMBLE AGILITY
The KTM 350 SX-F continues to deliver a dominant mix of horsepower and agility. It has an exceptional power-to-weight ratio with torque similar to that of a 450, without losing its 250-like agility. When you're looking for more than one advantage, this powerful, lightweight racer combines all your needs into one dominant package with serious championship pedigree to back it up.
ENGINE & EXHAUST
4-strokes have taken motocross to unthinkable new extremes in a playground where KTM is the dominant force. Lighter and more compact than ever thought possible, these well-balanced engineering masterpieces deliver class-leading power in the most dynamic way. Straight from the showroom floor, KTM 4-strokes offer READY TO RACE performance of the highest caliber.
The cylinder head on the KTM 350 SX-F is the gateway to its excellent power. It features two overhead camshafts with friction-optimized super-fine surfaces, connected to DLC coated finger followers that activate four lightweight titanium valves (intake 36.3 mm, exhaust 29.1 mm). KTM engineers have maximized the flow rate, delivering an optimal power band, with outstanding performance across the entire 13,400 rpm range.
The KTM 350 SX-F's crankshaft features a stiff design and utilizes a short, lightweight connecting rod, contributing to the incredibly dynamic and efficient power delivery. The big end bearing features two force-fitted bearing shells, which run directly on the crank pin. This design is a prerequisite for the extremely high engine speed levels and the unrivalled power of the 350cc. The design also enhances durability, allowing for long crankshaft service intervals, resulting in less effort and cost - and more time spent on two wheels.
CRANKCASES AND ENGINE COVERS
The compact engine cases are manufactured using a high pressure die-cast production process that helps with weight reduction, while retaining strength and durability. The design allows for optimal shaft arrangements close to the center of gravity, resulting in ideal mass centralization and easier ride-ability. The engine covers feature a smart surface structure that reduces wear caused by the rider's boots, keeping them looking as fresh as the day you bought it.
The KTM 350 SX-F has a lightweight, high-tech steel frame, carried over from the 2019 model. It plays an integral role in the bike's renowned maneuverability, while also providing accurate rider feedback. Its refined flex characteristics ensure the bike soaks up those big hits while still delivering excellent agility and high-speed stability. The chassis also features additional innovative elements, like "no dirt" footpegs and brackets for mounting an optional composite skid plate. For 2020, the suspension features improved damping characteristics. The reworked settings offer a slightly softer, more comfortable feel that, together with the dynamic, performance-oriented chassis, contributes to an intuitive, high-performance ride like no other.
ERGONOMICS & COMFORT
A rider's ability to work together with the bike depends on how quickly and easily he can maneuver around his motorcycle. In order to ensure optimal rider control, KTM has focused extensively on the best ergonomics for high-level performance. The neutral riding position is comfortable and, through various handlebar positions, can also be adjusted to suit every rider and condition. A rider's main interaction with the motorcycle comes through the bodywork, seat, footpegs and handlebars and these crucial contact points play a vital role in a rider's ability to maintain balance and control. When it comes to ergonomics, KTM chose to use only the best quality products, ensuring the KTM 350 SX-F, as well as the entire SX range, provide unrivalled feeling and control out on the track.
Made for mobility
All KTM SX models feature a seat that perfectly matches the range's dynamic performance-oriented ergonomics. The seat cover features silicone strips that provide better feel and grip for the rider. The seat is conveniently fixed to the bike using one long, lateral screw, making it safe and easy to handle.
