Once upon a time, we had dreams of being world-class motocross riders and if fate hadn’t lead us in another direction, we’d be achieving those dreams with a high-caliber motocross bike that has earned the distinction of the best in the market today, the KTM 350 SX-F .
The initial idea behind this bike was to line up at the MX1 World Championship with something that features reduced displacement, but also comes with all the advantages of a lighter bike. The final result was the birth of the 350 SX-F and foundations of a world title run in its first season. For the 2012 model, the 350 SX-F comes back bigger, better, and a whole lot meaner than ever before.
The 350 SX-F’s title-winning, state-of-the-art DOHC four-stroke engine features an electronic fuel injection and a balancer shaft that excels with an extremely wide usable rev range, highly efficient rideability, and performance capabilities that practically match that of its big brother, the 450.
Adding to its already impressive engine credentials, the 350 also features a cylinder head with two overhead camshafts, four titanium valves that are actuated by extremely lightweight, and carbon-coated cam levers. The 350 SX-F’s state-of-the-art frame is made from high-quality chrome-molybdenum stew, a material that’s not only extremely light but is also torsion-resistant, a critical combination that makes for excellent ride ability and world-class performance.
