Any condition, any race, any circumstance. The latest generation KTM SX-F FACTORY EDITIONs are primed to cut through the best and worst tracks and leave the opposition in its roost thanks to several groundbreaking updates for 2024. Red Bull KTM Factory Racing will soon be obliterating chronometers for the forthcoming Supercross and Motocross season thanks to the new 2024 KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION and the return of the 2024 KTM 250 SX-F FACTORY EDITION.
The KTM SX-F FACTORY EDITION concept remains the same: a highly evolved and modified spec of the current production model orientated towards pure performance. The upgrades have been tried, tested and selected through use in competition. In short: What our Factory guys race, you race.
KTM knows that READY TO RACE is more than just hot numbers from the dyno or milometer. The KTM SX-F FACTORY EDITIONs have distinction and style and that’s why aesthetic is important. As an example, a KTM SX-F FACTORY EDITION can be easily identified thanks to the orange powder-coated frame, usually a feature only reserved for KTM’s “works” machinery.
What do the new KTM 250 SX-F FACTORY EDITION and KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION have in store? First of all, the Connectivity Unit Offroad (CUO) is an important new addition. This two-part system is mounted between the right fork leg (protected by the new shape of the number plate) and the GPS component on the redesigned front fender. The CUO enables a wealth of easily adjustable options for engine behavior and suspension settings via the KTMConnect App. Essentially, it opens numerous new customization options and the ability to personalize preferences for a KTM dirt bike without needing external specialized help. But that’s not all. An official affiliation with LitPro will empower riders to examine their lines, speed, gearing and a lot of other information to make their lap times hit the mark, all through the app’s versatility.
Additionally, a new special chassis is a key focus. Varied wall thickness and cutaway sections enhance flexibility while reducing weight. Red Bull KTM Factory Racing adheres to this philosophy, consistently winning races and setting records at the highest level. The chassis strategically repositions rotating mass toward the center of gravity, improving traction out of corners with enhanced anti-squat behavior. Both bikes feature handling adjustments, such as CNC-milled orange anodized, rubber-damped triple clamps made from high-grade aluminum.
Feeling and function are improved even more by other 2024 KTM SX-F FACTORY EDITION specifications. Fully adjustable and tool-free WP Suspension lets you count on 310-millimeters of travel with the 48-millimeter WP XACT front fork with AER technology and redesigned protection rings. The WP Factory Start Device will help with those crucial starts. The shock has new low-friction linkage seals and the 2024 KTM SX-F FACTORY EDITIONs linkage settings have been reworked for optimal weight saving and stiffness. The linkage bolt is smaller and lighter and transferred directly from successful use by the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing team.
The 26.1-kilogram engine of the 2024 KTM 250 SX-F FACTORY EDITION tops the charts (the 2024 KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION offers a weight of just 26.8 kilogram) and is boosted further by a titanium Akrapoviç slip-on exhaust that shaves weight and increases power while the unit breathes better with an updated air intake sleeve and snorkel for the Twin Air filter.
Depth is in the details for both machines. New tank spoilers lead to improved cooling and a new fuel tank holder to better frame contact; orange FACTORY frame protectors heighten grip while the four-screw carbon reinforced FACTORY skid plate, and the billet HINSON clutch cover are all parts that will withstand the toughest of hits.
Grey ODI grips look as good as they work, and other improvements involve high-strength DID wheel sets with orange CMC machined hubs (harder for the bigger, fast jumps), Golden Chain and Dunlop GEOMAX MX34 tires. The MX34 has a new carcass material for better damping and absorption allowing better performance for longer (up to 30% compared to the previous model).
Slide the 2024 KTM SX-F FACTORY EDITIONs to a stop with a stiffer and tougher rear brake pedal that will pull the full power of the Brembo systems into play. Braking force is amplified by the semi-floating 260-mmillimeter front brake disc and a carbon reinforced FACTORY brake guard.
The FACTORY ribbed seat, orange rear sprocket and the unforgettable RED BULL KTM FACTORY RACING graphics sets this model apart from the rest. The 2024 KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION comes equipped with a selection of No. 4 and No. 7 for riders choosing to support Chase Sexton or Aaron Plessinger next season. As reigning champion for 2024, Sexton will strap the No. 1 on the bike for AMA Supercross season.
Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s new star has already personally signed a unique 2024 KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION after making his first visit to the factory and watching the motorcycles being built on the assembly lines. In honor of Sexton joining the conquering race team, one lucky owner will receive the signed #1 2024 KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION.
