FIRST LOOK! 2021-1/2 KTM 450SXF FACTORY EDITION
KTM is pleased to announce details of the new KTM 450SXF Factory Edition, offering enticing performance and aesthetic upgrades for 2021, along with the innovative addition of myKTM app connectivity straight off the showroom floor. With its development based on feedback straight from top-level Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team stars, competition never stops as KTM remains true to its fundamental goal of continuously pushing the boundaries while searching for something even better for all racers at the starting line. From a stadium seat, a track fence or through a screen, the sight of a race-winning motorcycle in full flight is something special for every Read to Race fan. From the rear view: Akrapovic muffler (not complete system), KTM Factory wheels, Factory seat cover, Red Bull graphics, orange frame and Hinson clutch cover (but not a Hinson clutch).
After securing the 2019 AMA Supercross 450SX Championship, Cooper Webb collected 13 podium results and four Main Event victories to finish runner-up in the 2020 championship aboard the KTM 450SXF Factory Edition. This machine was also the tool for Marvin Musquin to post seven top-three moto finishes in the 2020 AMA Pro Motocross series as he bounced back from injury with a satisfying fourth in the final 450MX class standings.
Taking full advantage of the experience collected through countless training and racing laps, KTM has applied key upgrades to the latest installment of the KTM 450SXF Factory Edition, including a near-identical visual aspect to the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing machines raced in Supercross and Motocross. When it comes to performance, there’s a direct link to the works machines of Cooper and Marvin as the bike comes with an orange frame, KTM PowerParts Factory wheels, KTM PowerParts Factory triple clamps (anodized in orange), KTM PowerParts composite skid plate, Hinson clutch cover and an orange rear sprocket. The spec list also boasts elements like the Akrapovic muffler, the KTM PowerParts Factory start holeshot device, the semi floating front brake and the disc guard.
A notable addition for 2021 is the Connectivity Unit that comes as standard on this special model and is integrated onto the new bar pad. This means the innovative myKTM App can be synced immediately and without the need of any additional parts. Through the use of the myKTM app riders of all levels can customize engine settings.
An additional benefit of the myKTM app is its ability to offer suspesnion recommendations based on every rider’s personal characteristics. Through a few easy menu options and swipes of your smartphone, every 2021 KTM 450SXF Factory Edition rider can shape their bike to a variety of conditions or terrain.
Produced in limited quantities, the 2021 KTM 450SXF Factory Edition will be available at authorized KTM dealers from January 2021 onwards.
