The March 2015 issue is on the newstands and in the mail right now. That is the 2015-1/2 KTM 450SXF Factory Edition IV on the cover.

We analyze every square inch of the KTM 450SXF Factory Edition IV. It shares almost nothing with the regular 2015 KTM 450SXF.

MXA test riders have to wear what they are told to wear. They don’t get a gear choice when it comes to bike tests or photo shoots. But, when they are are riding or racing for themselves, they can choose whatever they want. Here are the personal helmet choices of three MXA test riders.

Did you know that KTM has added a 250SXF to their Factory Edition line-up. Here is your chance to see all the details. Only 450 of these bikes will be made.

Tom White’s Classic Iron story focuses on the beautiful, British-built DOT Demon 250.

Who ya gonna call? We suggest that you let the MXperts handle your questions, doubts and queries.

As a teaser for a test coming in the May 2015 issue, we took Yamaha’s all-new YZ250FX cross-country bike and ran it through its paces for this “Moto In Motion” photo spread.

Do you recognize the Team Chaparral/Mazda graphics from the good old days? How about the number 2? This is Chaparral’s up-to-date take on what Jeremy’s bike would look like today — if it was a YZ450F.

We ride the President’s bike. Well, the President of Husqvarna at the least. Don’t be shocked that the President of a motorcycle company actually rides — Jon Erik Burleson does.
