The KTM 350 XC-F almost needs no introduction. The reams of usable, lightweight power and acute, competitive handling have contributed to countless victories, podiums, and titles in the arena of cross country and offroad racing.
The 2024 KTM 350 XC-F FACTORY EDITION, on the other hand, takes this race-bred machine to a whole different level.
The 2024 KTM 350 XC-F FACTORY EDITION is the latest expression of KTM’s desire to put the equipment ruling offroad circuits into the hands of every willing and capable rider. The bike builds on the KTM 350 XC-F and some of its major attributes, such as the latest 48 mm WP XACT Suspension (with full 300 mm travel), using closed cartridge spring forks with a mid-valve piston concept that optimizes the oil flow for fast and consistent damping. The fully adjustable system also has new protection rings and a hydro stop to be fully configured for the trail ahead. The 2024 KTM 350 XC-F FACTORY EDITION is armed with a host of performance parts to upgrade it to the ultimate offroad tool and to be a demon for delivering the goods in the heat of competition.
We all know about the versatility of the KTM 350 XC-F – Kailub Russell’s eight GNCC titles will forever testify to the strength of this platform – and the 2024 KTM 350 XC-F FACTORY EDITION puts the data, knowledge, and learning of the FMF KTM Factory Racing team directly onto showroom floors. READY TO RACE? Absolutely. Prospective riders will notice the 2024 race-themed livery (orange frame and graphics) that pairs the bike with the conquering FMF KTM Factory Racing riders, but will also appreciate the range of technical add-ons that make the new version of the bike such a mouth-watering acquisition.
Firstly, the attachment of a titanium FMF FACTORY 4.1RCT SILENCER will help shed weight and boost the bike’s sea of torque even further, and harness even more potential from the 350cc DOHC engine. Other additions for those thirsty for a racing ‘edge’ include a high-strength, fork-mounted FACTORY START DEVICE with two selectable preloads to ensure the best possible getaway from a standing start. At the other end of the 2024 KTM 350 XC-F FACTORY EDITION, a special REAR SPROCKET helps to reduce rotating masses and vibration, shaves yet more pounds, and augments transmission efficiency, while also looking pretty cool.
The CNC-milled aluminum and anodized FACTORY TRIPLE CLAMP brings increased precision, stability, and alignment to settings and handling with a special emphasis on the geometry, steering stem stiffness, and customization of the closed cartridge WP suspension. The FACTORY WHEEL SET provides more weight saving and further robustness for the competitive considerations of the 2024 KTM 350 XC-F FACTORY EDITION. The anodized hubs and aluminum spoke nipples are two more specs of a component that will also impact general handling.
The 2024 KTM 350 XC-F FACTORY EDITION will pull and power its way through mud, ruts, rivers, rocks, and whatever terrain it faces, but when ‘the show’ has to be stopped, the bike can depend on high-performance, stainless steel WAVE BRAKE DISCS front and rear. The front-end has a floating unit with an anodized inner-ring, while the rear has a solid design, all geared towards longer-lasting braking power and durability. The BRAKE DISC GUARD is incredibly light and made from a state-of-the-art, two-component, injection-molding process, meaning it is very strong to bat away stones and other obstacles. For convenience in racing situations, the wheel can be changed and the brake can be serviced without having to remove the guard.
On the theme of protection, a HINSON OUTER CLUTCH COVER brings extra ‘armor’ to the motor and the optimized SKID PLATE makes sure that the most stubborn of rocks and the gnarliest of hits will not cause extra problems. You, the rider, can count on prime grip and resilient performance of the FACTORY RACING SEAT that also adds to the aesthetic of this prime-time and unmissable FACTORY EDITION machine.
