FREERIDE 250 F

ktm-freeride-250-f

Purely nomadic

Who says the adventure can’t start right on your doorstep? Whether you live in an urban jungle or a real one, the new KTM FREERIDE 250 F will get you to places you never thought accessible. Wander off safe in the knowledge that its state-of-the-art 250cc DOHC 4-stroke engine has enough power to get this featherweight up the steepest of climbs, while being quiet enough to pass unnoticed. Trial, meet Enduro. World, meet your conqueror.

Cylinder (Serial)

Cylinder (Serial)

The centerpiece of the compact DOHC engine is this cutting-edge cylinder head. It has light, dual overhead camshafts with friction-optimized finger followers boasting a hard DLC coating. Four durable steel valves are actuated by two overhead camshafts and DLC coated cam followers, up to a whopping 10,000 rpm.

Valvetrain (Serial)

Valvetrain (Serial)

To keep the engine compact, KTM’s engineers develop parts that can do more than one thing. The crankshaft, for example, turns a laterally mounted intermediate gear, which in turn drives the timing chain while acting as a balancer shaft and driving the water pump. A hydraulic timing chain tensioner ensures precise and reliable valve timing.

Engine management system (Serial)

Engine management system (Serial)

The state-of-the-art Keihin Engine Management System (EMS) with electronic fuel injection features a new 42mm throttle body. Thanks to its unique injector position, the engine’s response gives a whole new meaning to the word ‘instantaneous’, while contributing to a low fuel consumption. Separate circuits for cold-starting and idle make on-site adjustments easy. Push the throttle back when the engine is warm and the cold start mode disengages. The EMS itself boasts a faster ECU equipped with different mappings for each gear, selected according to the data received from the gear position sensor.

Transmission (Serial)

Transmission (Serial)

The 6-speed transmission sings perfectly in tune with the power delivery of the 250cc engine and provides a precise and easy shifting action. The new KTM FREERIDE 250 F is equipped with the KTM “No Dirt” gear shift lever, preventing dirt from blocking the joint. The standard final drive ratio is 14:49, and an extra 12-tooth sprocket supplied in a separate enclosure is easily swapped in for riding in especially rough terrain.

Clutch (Serial)

Clutch (Serial)

The KTM FREERIDE 250 F has newly KTM-developed DS clutch (diaphragm steel) with a wear-free steel basket, extremely heat resistant clutch plates and nitrated steel liners. This clever design employs a diaphragm spring instead of the usual coil springs, making for considerably easier clutch action. Light operation and telepathic amounts of control come as standard with this hydraulic Formula actuated clutch, featuring in addition a 1mm smaller master cylinder.

Cooling (Serial)

Cooling (Serial)

The cooling system routes coolant from the cylinder head directly to the radiator, which is mounted in a well-protected position behind the front frame tube. The radiator fan is now controlled directly by the EMS, eliminating the need for a separate temperature switch.

Radiator protection

Radiator protection

Perfect crash bar for radiators. Simple fitting.

Water pump cover protection

Water pump cover protection

This plastic protector prevents damage to the water-pump cover and radiator hose in the hose connection area.

Exhaust (Serial)

Exhaust (Serial)

When designing this exhaust system, the engineers focused on low noise levels and emissions as well as an outstanding torque delivery for great rideability throughout. The reworked header is routed underneath the engine, protected by the frame and a sturdy bash plate. From there, exhaust gases are directed to the two rear aluminum silencers. Featuring a new anthracite color and a new KTM FREERIDE logo, each of them is equipped with a catalytic converter, effectively reducing both emissions and noise to environmentally friendly levels.

Wheels (Serial)

Wheels (Serial)

The new KTM FREERIDE 250 F is equipped with lightweight wheels in 21 inches front and 18 inches on the rear, featuring CNC machined hubs and newly designed, high-end aluminum rims by Giant, anodized in black and carrying a FREERIDE logo. These wheels are practically unbeatable in terms of weight, combined with the highest levels of stability.

Tires (Serial)

Tires (Serial)

The Maxxis Trialmaxx OEM tires have been developed specifically for the KTM FREERIDE range. While delivering plenty of traction, they leave much less of an impression in the ground than conventional Enduro competition tires thanks to their high land-to-sea ratio, which means they tear up the tracks less. Their high casings provide appreciably more comfort by supporting the action of the suspension. With their soft, grippy rubber compound, these tires are also great on demanding rocky terrain and when crossing roots.

Front suspension (Serial)

Front suspension (Serial)

The KTM FREERIDE 250 F uses the brand new WP XPlor 43 fork, a set of 43 mm upside-down fork legs with 250 mm of travel. With outstanding response and damping characteristics, the new WP XPlor 43 has an even more sensitive feel and enhanced protection against bottoming out. A split fork design with springs on both sides, each of the fork legs houses a separate damping function, with the compression on the left side and rebound damping on the right, both easily adjusted with dials on top of the fork. This allows riders to find their dream set-up with speed and precision – key words at KTM.

Rear suspension (Serial)

Rear suspension (Serial)

At 260 mm of wheel travel, the new WP PDS XPlor shock absorber is a perfect match for the new WP XPlor 43 fork, while saving 430 g of weight over the previous component. The proven and successful PDS rear suspension design (progressive damping system) has become something of a KTM trademark. On the WP PDS XPlor, the progressive damping is achieved by a second damping piston that uses a closed cup towards the end of the stroke, providing increased resistance against bottoming out. This design contributes to optimized progression of the complete rear suspension system, supported by a progressive spring. The suspension is adjustable in compression, rebound, and even offers separate high and low speed compression adjustment. Seat height can be lowered by 25 mm using an optional kit available through the KTM PowerParts program.

Triple clamp (Serial)

Triple clamp (Serial)

Newly designed, CNC machined triple clamps ensure enhanced clamping of the fork, matching the lengthened steering head of the new KTM FREERIDE 250 F’s frame. When combined, these new design features increase the rigidity of the complete front end for improved tracking stability.

Lowering kit

Lowering kit

The low suspension kits specially developed by KTM in collaboration with WP are the perfect compromise between maximum chassis performance and minimum possible seat height. Just like the standard parts, the components used here are manufactured from the highest quality materials and, just like the standard parts, they have been specially tuned for offroad use in intensive endurance tests. To ensure best possible function of the suspension kits, we only recommend use with a rider weight of up to 70 kg.

Bleeder valve set

Rear sprocket

Rear sprocket

This rear sprocket not only looks cool, it also provides the following compelling benefits:

  • Manufactured from high-strength 7075-T6 aluminium, the strongest aluminium in the world
  • The chain runs smoothly, straight as a die and true, because it's ground level to an accuracy of 0.002 mm
  • No small stones or dirt particles can become stuck under the chain thanks to angled recesses between the teeth
  • All these properties mean lower wear and extreme durability
  • Orange anodised with a permanent, organic and environmentally friendly pigment

Use of the 50T rear sprocket as of MY 14 can lead to space problems with the chainguide fitted as standard. If this is the case, then chainguide 773.04.070.310 must be used.

Handlebar (Serial)

Handlebar (Serial)

The new KTM FREERIDE 250 F is fitted with a tapered Neken handlebar made of high-strength aluminum. It has the same bend as the EXC handlebar and compared to the predecessor it is slightly wider for increased leverage. The throttle assembly features a rugged aluminum body with easy free play adjustment, allowing the throttle response to be modified using an alternative throttle cam. The throttle assembly is fitted with a vulcanized grip, while the left side of the handlebar carries a convenient and safe ODI lock-on grip.
