KTM 250 EXC-F 2022
What might be the smallest engine in the KTM 4-stroke range, the 2022 KTM 250 EXC-F packs a surprising punch. With its compact dimensions, minimal weight, and fantastic handling, the KTM 250 EXC-F has long been a favorite for motivated amateurs and ambitious pros alike. Thanks to its advanced fuel injection system, this powerplant also offers class-leading performance, low-down torque, and confidence-building power delivery.
01. ENGINE & EXHAUST
Compact dimensions with class-leading power output, the KTM 250 EXC-F’s fuel-injected DOHC engine is the most powerful and refined 250 cc on the market. Its efficient power delivery is available throughout the entire rev range and with its low weight of only 27.9 kg, this engine is the lightest and most competitive powerplant out there. With Euro IV homologation, it’s not only considerately green, but leaves the competition green with envy too.
All KTM EXC models feature high-tech, lightweight Chromoly steel frames with race-derived geometry, optimal stiffness, and unparalleled feedback for the rider. This translates into a playful handling character, with remarkable stability at speed. The subframe is made of extra-light and ultra-stable aluminum profiles, weighing less than 900 grams providing rear fender stability and durability in the event of a loop out.
03. ERGONOMICS & COMFORT
All KTM EXC 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.
04. BODYWORK & GRAPHICS
Drawing inspiration from the RED BULL KTM FACTORY RACING TEAM, the 2022 KTM EXC range features a bold contrast of orange and blue tones, as well as a factory-inspired blue seat. These are applied using in-mold graphics, which feature greater friction and fade resistance, meaning your steed will look factory-fresh after even the toughest time spend on the trails.
05. SOFTWARE & ELECTRONICS
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. A reworked wiring harness and revised packaging has most of the electrical components carefully positioned into a common area below the seat, making them more accessible and reliable.
