Taking lesson learned from Tony Cairoli’s dominating career aboard the 350 SX-F, and insights from top 350 EXC-F enduro riders, we created the all-new KTM 350 XC-F. Sharing the same aggressive motocross personality but with a refined chassis setup, reworked motor internals and improved EMS, the 350 XC-F, like Tony, is a flat-out, offroad-ripping legend!
The engine of the KTM 350 SX-F features a compact and very light (60lbs) construction. Its DOHC (double overheard camshaft) design with lightweight titanium valves and DLC coated cam followers allows for lively but strong engine characteristics. Fitted with the latest electronic fuel injection system and an E-starter, it has an extremely wide usable speed range, high performance and incredibly efficient rideability. The KTM 350 SX-F engine shares the same layout as the 250 SX-F, resulting in its playful handling similar to a 250 machine by from reducing the moving masses to a minimum.
KTM engineers just love dropping weight year after year. The result: the 2018 KTM XC models are the slimmest, lightest dirt bikes out there. Even though the 4-strokes are equipped with an E-starter as a standard feature, while the heavier competition still needs to be kickstarted. You can just focus on kicking ass.
When it comes to tearing along a desert track at high speed, comfort and confidence are key. The KTM 350 XF-C, like the rest of the range, benefits from race-honed ergonomics built with only one purpose in mind – winning.
Perfectly positioned contact points provide maximum control on the KTM 350 XC-F. The I-beam structure design of the front and rear fenders guarantees maximum stability at speed and keeps the weight low thanks to well thought-out construction and mounting. The fenders also stay cleaner for longer with a smart design that expels mud and grime. If there was ever an excuse to get dirty, this is it.
Keihin engine management and electronic fuel injection makes the 350 XC-F as innovative as it is READY TO RACE. Selectable engine mapping gives riders the ability to match power delivery to the terrain.
