KTM 250 SX‑F 2014: THE ULTIMATE WINNING BIKE

The 250 SX‑F has been an established force in the MX2 World Championship for years now and has delivered the world title to Mattighofen five times in succession. Most recently, Jeffrey Herlings won the 2012 World Championship on the 250 SX‑F and naturally he's placing his trust in the best motorcycle in the field again in the 2013 season. In MY 2014, the feisty four-stroke hits the scene with further improvements to engine and chassis – a performance package that will continue to dominate the MX2 class.
