We dare anyone to find us a bike that has a better resume than the KTM 250 SX-F. Really, when you look at three consecutive MX2 world championship titles, it’s very difficult to top that, especially when the aforementioned 250 SX-F has been improved compared to its predecessor.

The new 250 SX-F is now available with a revamped chassis and an electric starter that proves its worth in many situations, turning the bike with the smallest four-stroke in the KTM MX range into a certified, world-class, championship-caliber moto cross bike.

The 250 SX-F’s compact, state-of-the-art DOHC four-stroke engine has been derived directly from the Marvin Musquin’s world championship bike, which means that it’s bigger and better than ever before. The 2012 model year of the 250 SX-F also comes with a new electric starter that excels with an extremely wide usable rev range and powerful performance from the bottom end up to beyond the nominal engine speed.

The 250 SX-F also has a new technology in the form of a Keihin engine management system with electronic fuel injection and electronic throttle valve control, ensuring spontaneous responsiveness and maximum performance from the engine.

As far as handling is concerned, the 250 SX-F’s state-of-the-art frame is made from high-quality chrome-molybdenum steel, a material that’s both lightweight and extremely durable, providing balanced geometry that combines playful handling with razor-sharp precision. The 250 SX-F’s linkage rear suspension bolsters playful handling and extreme traction while a lightweight aluminum swing arm has been designed for optimum lateral stiffness while the linkage of the now more tautly-set WP shock absorber via a lever system provides high progressiveness and wide adjustment ranges.

There’s plenty to love about the KTM 250 SX-F. The fact that it has a history of championship success only makes this bike that much more attractive to young and up-and-coming riders.

Bodywork

The 250 SX-F’s bodywork with the very slim seat and spoiler lines, plus excellent contact points, perfects the bike’s ergonomics, making handling even simpler and more precise.

Frame and Suspension

The 250 SX-F’s state-of-the-art frame made from high-quality chrome-molybdenum steel is not only extremely light and torsion-resistant. It is also characterised by a particularly balanced geometry that combines playful handling with razor-sharp precision.

The 250 SX-F’s linkage rear suspension bolsters playful handling and extreme traction. The lightweight aluminum swingarm is designed for optimum lateral stiffness, the linkage of the now more tautly-set WP shock absorber via a lever system provides high progressiveness and wide adjustment ranges.

Electric Starter

Years ago, KTM proved that an electric starter is very advantageous even in the tough sport of motocross. That’s why the 250 SX-F can now also be started at the press of a button. For weight saving, the electric starter can be removed and a kickstarter installed in its place.
