The KTM 250 EXF-F has many attributes that make it a truly desirable motorcycle. For the beginning, it offers a great handling and perfect stability. It is also packed with a capable 1-cylinder 4-stroke, water-cooled engine which builds up plenty of traction at the bottom of the rev range and pushes hard at the top. The engine is combined with electronic fuel injection and the EMS (ENGINE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM) from Keihin. Moreover, if you opt for the optional map-select switch (PowerParts), you can also select from a variety of different engine characteristics.
The 2013 KTM 250 EXC‑F rides on a pair of high quality wheels which now come with black coated spokes for increase corrosion resistance. The wheels are shod in new MAXXIS FIM tyres - specially developed for KTM. You also get a stiff central tube frame made of chrome molybdenum steel tubing.

It’s an unbelievable handling miracle. It’s ridden to countless world titles! The KTM 250 EXC‑F. Our absolute success story. Builds up plenty of traction at the bottom of the rev range and pushes hard at the top. And the story continues in 2013! Factory rider Antoine Meo is entering into battle for this year’s world championship title in the E2 class on the latest version. The new model excels with its super-agile chassis thanks to state-of-the-art WP suspension components and its powerful DOHC engine featuring electronic fuel injection. And by the way, the new model comes in an extremely sporty outfit.
LIGHTWEIGHT ENGINE CASE
Slimmed down: Die-cast instead of sand-cast engine case! This noticeably reduces wall thickness with no reduction in stability. A lighter engine and therefore better handling are the result. A special, high-strength aluminium alloy provides maximum resistance to damage.
The redesigned airbox on the KTM 250 EXC-F model year 2013 allows maximum air to pass through, but minimal dust and spray. Replacement of the twin-air filter takes approx. 15 seconds, without any tools. Absolutely "Ready to Race".
The EMS from Keihin is state-of-the-art. Along with electronic fuel injection and a 42 mm throttle body, it delivers spontaneous, powerful responsiveness and handling. Automatic temperature and altitude compensation are also to be found on board. With the optional map-select switch (PowerParts), a variety of different engine characteristics can be selected. Thanks to the user setting tool from the PowerParts range, the EFI mapping on the KTM 250 EXC‑F 2013 can be changed and individually tuned from a laptop. This guarantees maximum performance at all times.
Alongside the very small, lightweight (only 8 g) cam followers with DLC (diamond-like carbon) coating, the DOHC cylinder head is equipped with four ultra-light titanium valves, allowing very high engine speeds of up to 12,000 1/min. Compared with the SX-F power unit, the camshafts are designed less for maximum power and more enduro-specifically for a broad usable rev range.
TRANSPARENT PLASTIC TANK
The fuel level can be seen directly from the outside on the 9.5 l, transparent plastic tank. A micro-filter in the fuel line keeps even the smallest of particles away from the injection nozzle and now sits in the fuel line’s quick-release coupling between tank and injection valve. Therefore, replacing it is child’s play. 13 l fuel tanks are available for all models from the PowerParts range. The tried and tested bayonet filler cap - including safety mechanism to prevent unintentional twisting - allows the fuel tank to be opened and closed quickly with only a quarter turn.
The 250 EXC-F model year 2013 has bodywork with extremely slim ergonomics and excellent contact points between rider and machine. It provides unlimited freedom of movement. Newly styled graphics give the models a fresher appearance.
Tapered, extremely stable aluminium handlebars from Neken are paraded on the 2013 enduro bikes. For the 2013 model year, new 2-component grips with KTM logo deliver excellent feeling and improved grip.
The latest generation of fully adjustable 48 mm open-cartridge fork "Made in Austria" by WP Suspension provides the highest levels of responsiveness with even more constant damping characteristics. Not least due to the use of a new fork oil and new fork seal rings.
HIGH QUALITY WHEELS
High quality, CNC-machined hubs are standard on all KTM wheels. The now black coated spokes increase corrosion resistance and centre the new, extremely stable, 7050 aluminium rims from GIANT. New MAXXIS FIM tyres - specially developed for KTM - provide excellent traction, very precise directional control and a long service life.
