2013 KTM 350 EXC‑F

Posted on by

The 2013 KTM 350 EXC-F features a svelte and agile stance which makes you feel in complete control of the motorcycle. You also get a comfortable saddle and an ergonomically designed handlebar which are working together to offer the perfect riding position. The 2013 model also comes with newly styled graphics which give the bike a new look.

The 2013 350 EXC-F is built on a modern frame made from high-quality chrome-molybdenum steel which is light yet strong.

In the center of the frame sits a single-cylinder, 4-stroke, spark-ignition, liquid-cooled engine with a displacement of 349.7 cc. It’s worthy of being said that the dimensions and weight of the KTM 350cc engine are virtually the same as the 250 unit. The engine is combined with an advanced EMS (Engine Management System) from Keihin. What’s even interesting is the fact that the motorcycle is available with the optional map-select switch, which helps you choose your own settings for the engine by selecting from a variety of different characteristics.

OVERVIEW

KTM 350 EXC‑F

The power of a 450! The handling of a 250! With peak power of more than 45 hp, the KTM 350 EXC‑F is mixing it with the E2 class. Ultra-compact, with 57.5 mm stroke and 88 mm bore, and equipped with state-of-the-art electronic fuel injection, the engine offers a broad usable rev range. This delivers extremely efficient rideability and easily controllable traction on all terrain.

BODYWORK

The KTM 350 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.

HANDLEBAR

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.

FRAME

The 2013 350 EXC-F’s lightweight frame made from high-quality chrome-molybdenum steel is distinguished by an extremely high level of lateral stiffness. It is also excellent at absorbing jolts introduced by the suspension system, whereby the playful handling and comfort of the KTM 350 EXC‑F have been further optimised.

ENGINE

KTM 350 EXC‑F

The dimensions and weight of the KTM 350cc engine are virtually the same as the 250! Its superlative performance results from reducing the moving masses to a minimum. The powerful punch from the bottom end up to the rev limiter brings a tear to the eye of every enduro enthusiast - no matter whether they’re a pro or a beginner! With so much torque, they’re all crying for joy!

NEW DDS CLUTCH

The new DDS clutch (Damped Diaphragm Steel): The one-piece outer clutch hub with primary gear is machined from a single piece of high-strength steel. Unbeatable reliability is the result. It also allows the use of thin steel discs. This results in an extremely compact construction for a narrow engine width. A diaphragm spring enables the implementation of an additional hub damping mechanism - an invaluable benefit in terms of traction and gearbox durability. In conjunction with the diaphragm spring, the hydraulic clutch actuation system from Brembo ensures very smooth and very precise clutch control.

INDIVIDUAL SUSPENSION SETTING

Flexibility foremost: 48 mm open-cartridge fork with fully adjustable spring preload, rebound and compression damping. Each model is individually tuned. Newly developed high-performance fork oil and new seal rings provide improved responsiveness with more constant damping properties.

HIGH QUALITY WHEELS

KTM 350 EXC‑F

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.

ENGINE MANAGEMENT

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 350 EXC‑F 2013 can be changed and individually tuned from a laptop. This guarantees maximum performance at all times.

LIGHTER 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.

VALVE TRAIN

Alongside the very small, lightweight (only 8 mm) 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.
