The main upgrade made for the 2013 version of the KTM 250 SX-F is its engine which comes with a completely new design, without kickstarter, in a new case, manufactured in a die-casting process. All these tweaks were made to keep the weight to as low as possible.

The engine wasn’t the only part that received attention from KTM’s engineers, as the body has also received a few modifications. Most of upgrades were made o improve the overall ergonomics and the company says that the “function of the plastics have been designed in such a way that the whole chassis and engine package forms a perfect harmony with the rider down to the very last detail.”

Among the design modifications made for the 2013 model you’ll find a restyled fuel tank and spoiler and a fresh airbox cover and front fender.
