KTM has released their 2014 Motocross line-up and they are better than ever! Check out what is new on the Orange bikes now.
The flagship of the KTM Motocross bikes and the one that the BTO Sports-KTM team rides has been improved for even more over the competition. The KTM 450 SX-F has new engine case to reduce weight. The piston has been modified for more durability, the DDS clutch get a 280 Nm clutch spring and a new three-layer cylinder head gasket to increase durability. The 450 SXF also features a lightened camshaft with a strengthened auto-decompression mechanism.
The 350SX-F is still the perfect dirt weapon for that rider looking for a nimble machine while still having the power to run with the 450F machines. All 2014 KTM models get a revised chain guide for more reliability and less weight. There is a new front brake lever, actuator and reservoir. The saddles have new foam cores. All models in the SX range are equipped with a new, lightweight, polyethylene, 1.98 gallon gas tanks, which have revised gas caps. The fuel pump on the four-stroke motocross models is the now the same as the pump used on the four-stroke enduro models.
The KTM 250SX-F has proven it is the MX weapon of choice in the 250F class. It’s easy to believe that KTM didn’t have to do very much to make their 250F more refined for 2014. Improvements to the suspension helps it tackle the rough chop and resistant to bottoming. In the motor, KTM switched from the previous six speed to now a five speed transmission to keep the motor in the meat of the power curve. The header pipe also received a new resonance chamber, reducing sound and giving the motor added torque.
