2013 KTM 350 SX-F First Ride Photo Gallery

KTM continues to develop its unique 350 SX-F motocrosser. Learn more about it in the 2013 KTM 350 SX-F First Ride.

Although it looks the same, the engine wears new cases and a fresh cylinder head. The piston, connecting rod and crankshaft are new as well and based off the parts in the factory race team bikes.
The engine electronics were upgraded for ’13 including a larger throttle body and new RC8R-sourced injector.
The body panels now come with the graphics inlayed into the plastic. The gas cap is also now a conventional screw-type as opposed to the previous tab-style quarter turn.
The shock body and spring rate (5.8 kg/mm) are unchanged for ’12. The steel-trellis frame however is now painted sliver instead of black.
The wheels continue to be sourced from Excel. They are laced to aluminum hubs with new black corrosion resistant spokes.

The 350 SX-F’s ergonomics work great for riders that are taller than average.
The 350 SX-F offers 250-like handling with top-end engine power similar to that of the 450 class.
Steering is step-less and predicable but the SX-F doesn’t turn quite as sharply as some of the other bikes in its class.
The KTM 350 SX-F offers more aggressive suspension settings than ever before.
Bottom-end engine power continues to be soft but keep the revs up and the powerband comes online earlier than last year’s machine.
With its reduced engine reciprocating mass the 350 SX-F feels relatively light in the air and on the ground.
