2021 KTM 350 XCF-W
The KTM 350 XCF-W builds on the successful formula of offering 250-like agility and 450-like power. This offroad ripper, developed around a lightweight engine and chassis, delivers performance even closer to the power of a 450 while getting ever closer to the agility of a 250 - so, the basic idea of this bike is easy to see, and has been a recipe for success right from the start.
Compact dimensions with an unbelievable power output, the KTM 350 XCF-W's fuel-injected DOHC engine offers the best power-to-weight ratio on the market, thanks to newly developed camshafts, exhaust system and updated electronic fuel injection. Its class-leading power delivery is available throughout the entire rev range. The weight is reduced to 61.7 lbs (28 kg), making it almost as light as a 250, while offering power and torque closer to a 450 cc.
All XCF-W models feature new high-tech, lightweight chromoly steel frames. This includes hydro-formed elements produced by state-of-the-art robot welding. They retain their race-proven geometries, but by redesigning certain areas they now have a higher lateral, longitudinal and torsional stiffness, resulting in better feedback for the rider, playful handling and improved stability. The laterally attched engine head stays (the connection between cylinder, head and frame) are now made of aluminum, reducing vibration and further contributing to precise cornering. The bikes also feature newly designed lateral frame guards with a structured surface, improving grip, while also serving as a heat protector against the muffler on the right side. The subframe is made of extra-light and stable aluminum profiles, weighing less than 2 lbs (900 gr) and is 40 mm longer than before, providing better rear fender stability.
All KTM XCF-W models are equipped with the same high-strength aluminum tapered NEKEN handlebar. The handlebar allows for four different positions. The handlbars 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. All models can be fitted with an optional ignition curve selector switch on the handlebar for selecting alternative maps. The rider also has the option to activate TRACTION CONTROL from this optional switch; a unique feature which guarantees more effiecient traction, expecially in slippery conditions, and can be activated with the push of a button during riding.
The durable in-mold graphics convey the READY TO RACE character of the KTM XC-F model line.
BATTERY & WIRING HARNESS
All engines are fitted with the proven electric starter, which is a major benefit for any offroad activity. It is powered by a super lightweight 2 Ah lithium-ion starter battery, which provides safe, reliable starting. The wiring harness has most of the electical components carefully poisitioned into a common area below the seat, making them easily accessible and reliable.
