KTM 350 SX‑F 2014: BENCHMARK

In the three years since its launch, the revolutionary 350 SX‑F has proven that it's possible to win the MX1 World Championship with reduced displacement as well. Over this period, Toni Cairoli has been the dominant force in this class with the 350 SX‑F and the Italian is banking on this ingenious concept of low weight, playful handling and rev-oriented engine characteristics again in the 2013 season. A unique recipe for success, from which professionals benefit just as much as amateurs.
