It’s an unbelievable handling miracle. It’s been ridden to countless world titles! The KTM 250 XCF-W is an absolute success story. This bike builds up plenty of traction at the bottom of the rev range and pushes hard at the top. And the story continues in 2013! 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 new graphics with new dual-comp

New airbox


The redesigned airbox on the ktm 250 xcf-w 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".

Valve train


Alongside the very small, lightweight (only 8 g (0.28 oz)) 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 rpm. Compared with the sx-f power unit, the camshafts are designed less for maximum power and more enduro-specific for a broad usable rev range.

Transparent plastic fuel tank


The fuel level can be seen directly from the outside on the 9.5 l (2.51 gal.), 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.

Engine management


The ems from keihin is state-of-the-art. Along with electronic fuel injection and a 42 mm (1.65 in) throttle body, it delivers spontaneous, powerful responsiveness and handling. Automatic temperature and altitude compensation are also to be found on board.

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 provides better handling. A special, high-strength aluminum alloy provides maximum resistance to damage.

Telescopic fork


The latest generation of fully adjustable 48 mm (1.89 in) open-cartridge fork "made in austria" by wp suspension provides the highest levels of responsiveness with 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 center the new, extremely stable, 7050 aluminum rims from giant. Dunlop geomax mx51 tires provide excellent traction, very precise directional control and a long service life.



The 2013 250 xcf-w 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 aluminum 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.
