KTM 250 EXC‑F 2014: HANDLING MIRACLE

The 250 EXC‑F has been an established force in the E1 World Championship for years now and last year it bore Meo Antoine to the world title. In MY 2014, the feisty four-stroke hits the scene with a completely new DOHC engine that distinguishes itself from its predecessor above all with significantly more torque. The new engine, optimised frame and new bodywork turn the 250 EXC‑F more than ever into a winning bike in MY 2014, which will set a new benchmark in its class.
