2013 KTM 350 XCF‑W: IMPROVED RIDEABILITYBack to Bikes Next Benefit Previous Benefit
The 2013 350 XCF-W's lightweight frame made from high-quality chromoly steel is distinguished by an extremely high level of lateral stiffness. It is also excellent at absorbing jolts introduced by the suspension system, whereby the playful handling and comfort of the KTM 350 XCF‑W have been further optimized.
NEW DDS CLUTCH
The new DDS clutch (Damped Diaphragm Steel): The one-piece outer clutch hub with primary gear is machined from a single piece of high-strength steel. Unbeatable reliability is the result. It also allows the use of thin steel discs. This results in an extremely compact construction for a narrow engine width. A diaphragm spring enables the implementation of an additional hub damping mechanism - an invaluable benefit in terms of traction and gearbox durability. In conjunction with the diaphragm spring, the hydraulic clutch actuation system from Brembo ensures very smooth and very precise clutch control.
INDIVIDUAL SUSPENSION SETTING
Flexibility foremost: 48 mm (1.89 in) open-cartridge fork with fully adjustable spring preload, rebound and compression damping. Each model is individually tuned. Newly developed high-performance fork oil and new seal rings provide improved responsiveness with more constant damping properties.
HIGH QUALITY WHEELS
High quality, CNC-machined hubs are standard on all KTM wheels. The now black coated spokes increase corrosion resistance and centre the new, extremely stable, 7050 aluminum rims from GIANT. Dunlop GEOMAX MX51 tires provide excellent traction, very precise directional control and a long service life.
