2013 KTM 350 XCF‑W: PERFORMANCE FOR PROS AND AMATEURS ALIKEVolver a la moto Siguiente
The dimensions and weight of the KTM 350cc engine are virtually the same as the 250! Its superlative performance results from reducing the moving masses to a minimum. The powerful punch from the bottom end up to the rev limiter brings a tear to the eye of every enduro enthusiast - no matter whether they're a pro or a beginner!
Alongside the very small, lightweight (only 8 mm (0.31 in)) cam followers with DLC (diamond-like carbon) coating, the DOHC cylinder head is equipped with four ultra-light titanium valves, allowing very high engine speeds of up to 12,000 rpm. Compared with the SX-F power unit, the camshafts are designed less for maximum power and more enduro-specific for a broad usable rev range.
The EMS from Keihin is state-of-the-art. Along with electronic fuel injection and a 42 mm (1.65 in) throttle body, it delivers spontaneous, powerful responsiveness and handling. Automatic temperature and altitude compensation are also to be found on board.
LIGHTER ENGINE CASE
Slimmed down: Die-cast instead of sand-cast engine case! This noticeably reduces wall thickness with no reduction in stability. A lighter engine provides better handling. A special, high-strength aluminum alloy provides maximum resistance to damage.
