2021 KTM 250 XC-F : SMALL-BORE DOMINATION.
Introducing the 2021 KTM 250 XC-F…
When it comes to the highly competitive battlefield of 250 cc offroad racing, the KTM 250 XC-F is the general. Boasting a state-of-the-art engine management system, the strongest 250 cc 4-stroke motor in pit lane and a high-performance, race-bred chassis setup, the 250 XC-F is an education in speed and agility.
2021 KTM 250 XC-F Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features
KTM refuses to knock down a gear in its mission to make the EXC-F models the most competitive 4-stroke machines on the market today.
Low weight, unbeatable torque, efficient engine management, sensitive delivery, and even more reliability have been KTM development priorities over recent years. Developed for riders of any skill range, the 2021 KTM EXC-F models are race-winning machines across all offroad racing disciplines.
Compact dimensions with class-leading power output, KTM’s fuel-injected 4-stroke engines are the most refined and powerful on the market. They feature enduro-specific exhaust systems, latest-technology electronic fuel-injection, and several internal components that all help deliver efficient power throughout the rev range. These Euro IV homologated engines are the lightest and most competitive yet, with an unrivaled power-to-weight ratio.

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.
The KTM 250 XC-F engine is known to be the strongest engine in the 250 cc class. It screams at the top of its lungs at 14,000 RPM, but is equally happy producing tons of torque and power across the rest of the rev range. Its compact architecture contributes to an excellent mass centralization, supporting the rideability of the bike. And it only weighs 47.6 pounds. That’s including the incredibly beneficial E-starter.
The airbox on the KTM 250 XC-F ensures optimal flow dynamics, and together with the intake snorkels, results in optimal power and throttle response. Despite the obvious performance enhancements, 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.
The high-tech, lightweight chrome-moly steel frame has a knack for easy handling, outlandish rideability, precise cornering and excellent stability. You can also count on precisely calculated stiffness of the frame. This results in better absorption of the energy created from the front and rear suspension, sucking up jumps and bumps. In short: more comfort and less rider fatigue. Laterally attached, lightweight aluminum engine head stays (the connection between cylinder head and frame) contribute to more precise cornering and a reduced vibration level. The engineers were able to pull off all that, while making their frame 2.2 pounds lighter than that of the lightest competitor on the market. In addition, it is easier to maintain, easier to work on and supplies more space for the tank and other components. The bike also features an extra-light subframe made of aluminum, which tips the scales at less than 2 pounds
