Posted on by  

Sleek, compact and agile, the 2014 KTM 350 EXC-F is ready to tackle any tracks with poise. Reliable to the core and improved for 2014, the KTM 350 EXC-F is a capable enduro motorcycle powered by a compact DOHC, 1-cylinder water-cooled 4-stroke engine with a displacement of 349.7 cc.

The 2014 model year features a completely new design with fresh shrouds, a new airbox cover and a restyled front fender. Moreover, the headlight and its fairing have also been modified as well as the motorcycle’s seat that now is slightly more comfortable thanks to the new high-quality foam.

The bike’s frame has also received some attention from KTM’s engineers and now it weighs less thanks to the thinner walled down tubes. In addition, the braces that connect the cylinder head were also optimized.

The motorcycle rides on lightweight wheels that feature CNC-machined hubs, high-end Excel rims and black coated spokes with lightweight aluminium nipples. The wheels are shod in Maxxis enduro tyres.

The modern and lightweight frame design made of high-strength chromoly steel sections combines maximum longitudinal stiffness with optimum torsional ridigty. It guarantees easy handling and precise cornering, but also outstanding stability. In 2014, the frame of the 4-stroke weighs even less thanks to thinner walled down tubes. In addition, the braces that connect the cylinder head were optimized. This means all new frames not only have a striking new color but also set the clear benchmark with respect to weight and stability.

Bodywork

Shrouds, airbox cover, front fender, headlight fairing and the headlight have all been restyled for 2014. The KTM designer’s focus was to achieve complete ergonomic harmony between rider and bike for a more stable ride and effortless movement on the bike. Adding to the improvements is a high-quality seat foam core to maximize comfort and durability. With the new front fender, the designers omitted ribbing on the inside to reduce mud and dirt buildup while increasing rigidity over the previous component by 50 percent.
