The 2022 KTM 450 XC-F is nothing less than an offroad weapon. Capable of tearing through just about any landscape at breakneck speed. This is thanks to a compact SOHC engine, delivering explosive power in a smooth, usable delivery that suits both weekend riders and seasoned racers alike, no to mention sharingg 95% of its parts with the championship-winning KTM 450 SX-F motocross bike.
Powered by the compact, free-revving 449.9 cc powerhouse as in the ripping KTM 450 SX-F, the KTM 450 XC-F needs little introduction when it comes to turning on the noise. KTM engineers have delivered a truly READY TO RACE machine with the latest engine management technology, meaning the KTM 450 XC-F pumps out unrivaled horsepower, buckets, or torque and with one simple goal in mind - to win races!
When it comes to power delivery and performance, the exhaust on all 4-stroke models plays a key role and packs a punch that is hard to beat. It features a model-specific header pipe with an advanced resonator called FDH (Flow Design Header), which is a small chamber around the pipe. The design allows the exhaust to be disassembled without removing the shock absorber, providing easier access to the shock. The aluminum sleeve, end cap, and internal design of the silencer also allow for slimmer ergonomics, making the bike feel slimmer, without compromising regulatory noise limits.
The KTM 450 XC-F is built around a high-tech, lightweight chrome-moly steel frame, which provides class-leading levels of handling, rideability, precision, and stability. Designed to take the hardest of hits, the frame itself acts as a shock absorber for the front and rear suspension, soaking up any jumps and jolts. The frame also features an extra-light subframe made of aluminum, which tips the scales at less than 2 pounds, keeping the weight low and the speed stellar.
The KTM 450 XC-F is fitted with a lightweight set of high-end wheels, consisting of CNC-machined hubs, Giant rims, and black spokes with aluminum nipples. These are wrapped in Dunlop Geomax AT81, which together, provide maximum, grip, traction, and stability with the absolute and minimum weight.
These high-tech Brembo babies are combined with lightweight Wave brake discs. You couldn't brake any harder, better, faster or stronger
All KTM XC-F models are equipped with adjustable, high-strength aluminum tapered handlebars made by NEKEN. These can be mounted in four different positions. Standard with ODI vulcanized grip on the right side and a comfortable ODI lock-on grip on the left, your only worry is hanging on, and letting rip.
The KTM 450 XC-F uses a lightweight 5-speed transmission with gear ratios that are perfectly matched to the power delivery of its large displacement engine. Due to its high performance, 1st and 3rd gears are treated with an ultra-slick surface coating for reliability, while a No Dirt gear shift lever design prevents mud and sand from clocking up the level joint. All XC-F 4-stroke engines are also fitted with a gear position sensor, giving the option of different engine characteristics for each gear.
ENGINE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
The state-of-the-art Keihin Engine Management System, with electronic fuel injection, features a 42 mm throttle body with separate systems for cold starting and idle adjustment. The throttle cable mount also allows for easy access and a smooth routing of cables for crisp throttle response, every time.
CYLINDER AND PISTON
Inside the short cylinder, with a bore of 95 mm, thumps a new box-type piston made by CP with a reworked shape for improved performance. Its crown geometry is adapted perfectly to the high-compression combustion chamber, where its rigid structure and low weight shine. Thanks to the low oscillating masses, the engine is as snappy as it is strong.
The KTM 450 XC-F is fitted with the extremely durable, KTM-developed DDS clutch (damped diaphragm steel), with a wear-free steel basket and heat-resistant clutch plates. It uses a diaphragm spring instead of the usual coil springs, which results in considerably easier clutch action. Additionally, the Brembo hydraulic system provides easy and precise clutch modulation throughout the entire operating temperature range.
