From two-strokes to four-strokes, KTM has the market covered

All the bikes new bodywork and stronger hand plus a new airbox design rear-facing intakes that to be more waterproof than models. Excel rims are wrapped in Dunlop tires. WP get new seals to reduce stiction and performance over small

The four-… XCFs received the share of 2012 updates, with a new frame, swingarm and PDS shock with a revised rate. New cast triple with 22mm of offset handling and flex characteristics of the new All the four-strokes get new engine cases are more pliable than offerings, meaning they give a bit on impact rather crack.

The cooling system has improved, with integrated in the frame and new connectors. The 450 and 500 also with electric cooling

Fuel injection is provided by the Keihin 42mm throttle with automatic temperature and compensation.

The 250XCF gets a new specially tuned for tractability. The is now more powerful, and a new silencer and arrestor keep the bike and legal. The 350XCF gets an engine as well, with compression (12.3 vs. 13.5:1) the motocross version to smooth out the

It also gets an all-new new spring clutch with spring preload that is with the 450 and 500.

Like the it gets an improved 196-watt system and new 2.5-gallon fuel The new 350F engine is purported to just 62.8 pounds, the electric starter, kickstarter and flange! With cylinder-head the 350 likes to rev, with the rev set at 12,000 rpm. The six-speed is ‘semi-close ratio’ with no big to allow seamless power

The valve train features new guides and a simple spring-loaded chain-tensioner system.

The 500XCF is big with a new SOHC engine, engine cases, multi-function shaft, lightweight piston and connecting rod. The 500’s was designed to be reliable and simple to with the lowest possible and size.

That’s the tech But what are they like to Before we go too far, I should that I am 165 pounds wearing gear, and the area we did our preliminary was a combination of gravely soil, tight trails and high-speed Some things were across the line, like ergonomics, best-in-the-business brakes and a strong overall feel.

All the bikes have quiet though the two-strokes do not come a spark arrestor and are sold as only’ machines.

In tight, conditions the 250XC-W would be but on faster terrain you’ve got to hard to keep up your The clutch and gearbox are excellent, is good because to maintain in the open sections you’ve got to this bike very We liked it, and it would be a great for slippery Eastern singletrack, but on the and loose trails at our test in Wyoming, it simply made us too hard.

The 450XCF-W surprised us by nearly as agile as the 250XCF-W. It good, smooth power, feels heavy or intimidating, and hint at stalling or flaming It was confidence inspiring to ride, but the suspension did feel a little compared to the lighter, slower

Like the rest of the 2012 the WP fork is excellent. We liked bike a lot, and it was our favorite up to this point of the day.

The was a nice improvement to the old 530. It smaller and lighter than its with strong torque makes it easy to ride in the sections or in the woods. This make a … play But as a race bike it does a little cumbersome in the woods, and the suspension does feel too for the speeds of which this is capable. We’d be happy to it all day, but race it?

Maybe if we grew another 6 taller and gained 40 pounds. The was simply too much motorcycle for little old writer.

We were to ride all the cross-country ‘W’ wide-ratio models except for the 150XC and the so impressions of those will to wait till a later

Which leaves us with…

The KTM We’ve read all about the We’ve heard people say it was a 450, or a cheater 250F. it’s sort of both of things. It is physically lighter the 450 by just a few pounds.

We’ve mildly souped-up 250F bikes that can outrun it. The is excellent up front and average in the It doesn’t exactly sound a winning combination, but trust us, in the world it is.
