FIRST LOOK! 2022 KTM MOTOCROSS MODELS

KTM press release: The purest definition of advanced motorcycle technology, the 2022 KTM 450SXF is an extremely compact package that produces an unrivalled power-to-weight ratio with power put to the ground in the most effective way possible. Further proof of this formula’s success came this weekend at the final round of the AMA Supercross Championship in Salt Lake City, where Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Cooper Webb earned his second-career title in the 450SX class aboard the KTM 450SXF Factory. As a stablemate to the championship-winning KTM 450SXF, the KTM 250SXF features unmatched outright speed in a class that pushes the boundaries of 250 cc performance, while the KTM 350SXF ideally mixes 250 agility with 450-like engine grunt. Both the KTM 250SXF and KTM 350SXF feature a new counter-balancer shaft bearing for 2022 to reduce friction and increase durability.

Building upon a legacy of class-leading performance for aspiring and experienced racers alike, the 2022 two-stroke range includes three distinct models. A benchmark in the division, the KTM 125 SX occupied seven of the 12 top spots in the 2020 EMX125 European Championship. In its updated 2022 trim, the KTM 150SX can battle with the potent 250 four-strokes, while the KTM 250SX is a two-stroke powerhouse with the same light feeling.
