2016 KTM 350 SX-F
The 2016 KTM 350 SX-F comes with a bigger cylinder head and more stroke, is lighter and is also more powerful than the 2015 models. It is a stable bike that corners amazingly and keeps lines well and is still quick taking off of the line. The 350 SX-F blows away any big-bore 250F without feeling like a slow 450. The 2016 pumps out more bottom end grunt than previous years while maintaining its high-revving character, which improves its ability to hang with a 450. The 2016 KTM 350 SX-F is an agile and powerful bike with a DOHC engine with a new design that is 20 millimeters shorter and lighter than the previous engine. With the new engine, the five speed transmission is lighter and has wider gears, the lithium-ion battery also reduces the weight of the SX-F models.
