2021 KTM 450 XC-F : CONQUER THE GREAT OUTDOORS.

Introducing the 2021 KTM 450 XC-F…

When maximum attack is required, the only answer is the KTM 450 XC-F. The compact SOHC engine delivers explosive power in a smooth, usable delivery that suits both weekend riders and seasoned racers alike. More to the point, the KTM 450 XC-F shares 95% of its parts with the multiple championship winning KTM 450 SX-F motocross bike. So, are you READY TO RACE?

 

 

 

 

 

 

2021 KTM 450 XC-F Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

CUTTING-EDGE 4-STROKES
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.

ENGINE
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.

 

 

2021 KTM 450 XC-F Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Exhaust

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.

Engine

The 450 XC-F features the same compact 450 cc powerhouse as in the ripper 450 SX-F. KTM’s engineers worked tirelessly to increase the READY TO RACE ability of this machine by including the latest engine management technology and refining the SOHC cylinder head and the latest electronic fuel injection. This means the 450 XC-F pumps out unrivaled horsepower with one simple goal in mind – to win races

Airbox

The airbox on the KTM 450 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

Frame

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

Seat

Ergonomically perfect, the seat has a high foam volume, which offers great comfort and durability, while keeping the weight low.

Handlebar

All KTM XC models are equipped with the same high-strength aluminum tapered NEKEN handlebar. The handlebar allows for four different positions. The handlebars come standard with an ODI vulcanized grip on the right side and a comfortable ODI lock-on grip, which does not require any wire or glue, on the left. Additionally, the bike is fitted with a map-select switch on the handlebar for selecting alternative engine maps. The rider also has the option to activate TRACTION CONTROL from this switch; a unique feature which guarantees more efficient traction, especially in slippery conditions, and can be activated with the push of a button during riding.

Footpegs

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 EXC models, which are 6 mm higher than the XC versions.

Decals

Simply riding a KTM 450 XC-F attracts the attention of onlookers, but the new inlay graphics definitely make them turn for a second look.

HANDLEBAR MAP SELECT SWITCH

With one touch of a button, the map switch gives the rider the chance to select between a standard map setting and a more aggressive map for loamy, high grip dirt conditions. This is particularly useful for changing track conditions or for a rider that is looking for more control as he begins to get tired.

Battery & wiring harness

A strong lithium ion battery breathes life into the engine and contributes to low vehicle weight. The lightweight battery and wiring harness are centralized in a compartment above the air filter box, allowing the mechanic to remove the subframe without moving the electronics. A happy mechanic is a good mechanic
