2021 KTM 250 SX-F : DYNAMIC IN EVERY WAY.
Introducing the 2021 KTM 250 SX-F…
The KTM 250 SX-F was primed for global domination and is set to continue its dominance for 2021. Not only is it the lightest bike in its class, but it also offers an unrivalled, confidence-inspiring power delivery, making it a great choice for both amateur and professional riders. Laying the power down effectively is the secret to fast lap times and this capable package has all the right credentials to get the most important job done – getting to the chequered flag first.

When it comes to power delivery and performance, the exhaust on all 4-stroke models plays a key role and packs a punch that is hard to beat. It features a model specific header pipe with an advanced resonator called FDH (Flow Design Header), which is a small chamber around the pipe. The design allows the exhaust to be disassembled without removing the shock absorber and also provides better access to the shock. The aluminum sleeve, end cap and internal design of the silencer allow for slimmer ergonomics, making the bike feel narrower, without compromise to regulatory noise limits.
Renowned as the strongest engine in 250 competition, the 2020 version maintains its dominance. Its compact structure contributes to excellent mass centralization, which supports the easy rideability of the bike. The 2020 model features a new, stronger oil pump intermediate gear that, along with several other small, but important refinements, contributes to improved reliability. The low weight of only 57.1 lbs, in combination with the compact engine layout and unrivalled power, once again makes the KTM 250 SX-F a real force to be reckoned with, yet still easy to ride for both amateur and professional riders.
The airbox on the KTM 250 SX-F ensures optimal flow dynamics, and together with its intake snorkels, leads to maximum power and quick throttle response. Despite the obvious performance advantages, the design also offers maximum protection against soiling of the air filter. The large Twin-Air air filter is mounted on a cleverly designed stiff cage that minimizes incorrect installation. As found on previous models, filter maintenance is quick and easy and does not require tools – a standard, original feature from KTM. Every SX-F comes with an additional PowerParts airbox cover (in the by-pack) featuring additional air intake holes for higher engine performance, meaning that the the airbox can be customized for different engine characteristics or to suit track conditions.
The frame on the KTM 250 SX-F has to cater for the dynamic riding styles typical of the class it fits into. As with the entire SX range, the frame is professionally crafted from hydroformed chromium molybdenum steel tubes that are robot welded to ensure the highest levels of consistent quality. The carefully calculated stiffness of the frame delivers responsive handling and works perfectly with the suspension to provide excellent agility and high-speed stability. All 2020 KTM SX frames feature a highly durable powder coating and come with standard frame protectors. The subframe is made from lightweight aluminum and provides great feeling for the rider, as well as easy movement across the seat.
Sophisticated ´no-dirt´ footpegs prevent clogging of the footpeg pivot, even when digging in deep ruts. Looking for a higher riding position? Then just mount the footpegs of the MY2019 EXC models, which are 6 mm higher than the SX versions.
All KTM SX models feature a seat that perfectly matches the range’s dynamic performance-oriented ergonomics. The seat cover features silicone strips that provide better feel and grip for the rider. The seat is conveniently fixed to the bike using one long, lateral screw, making it secure and easy to handle
