The 250 SX‑F is virtually a guarantor for top places in hard-fought motocross battles – this is substantiated not only by the numerous world titles. For the 2014 model year, KTM engineers have equipped the engine with, among other things, a lighter transmission featuring five instead of six gears. The combination of compact engine design and unrivalled performance make the 250 SX‑F an undisputed contender in the next model year as well.
The 250 SX‑F engine is equipped as standard with an electric starter – an undisputed benefit when the going gets really tough in the heat of battle, even when a slight weight disadvantage has to be accepted as a consequence. A redesigned starter freewheel is employed in MY 2014 for the benefit of greater durability.
