2014 KTM 450 XC-F: THE BENCHMARK

Charlie Mullins often leads the GNCC pack aboard the potent XC-F. No wonder, as the compact SOHC engine with the groundbreaking injection technology guarantees brute but highly controllable power. Among the large 4-strokes, the 450 XC-F scores mainly with its performance and agility. It is the right choice for every cross-country rider looking for torque and power with lots of control for XC1 racing.
