2016 350 SX-F Specifications and Highlights

With the new generation of the 350 SX-F the success story can go on. The dominance with which this machine has won one world championship title after the other is unparalleled. In his first year as KTM factory rider, Antonio “Tony” Cairoli already managed to win the 2010 MX1 World Championship with just 350cc. Ever since, the Red Bull athlete from Sicily dominated the competition in his class at will. The results are five consecutive World Championship titles, won with ease in the top tier of MXGP by Cairoli and the KTM 350 SX-F. Almost as much power as a 450, but the agility of a 250 – the basic idea is easily summarized – a concept that has been successful from the start.

For 2016 everything is new: Chassis, suspension, bodywork and a more powerful fuel injected engine. The all-new 350 SX-F is even faster also due to an overall weight reduction of 6.8 pounds. An essential point in the new construction was to create even more compact dimensions in order to achieve a more effective centralization of mass for improved rideability.

This combination of low weight, playful agility and a high-revving engine will be again the right machine for Cairoli to defend his title in the new season, since the 350 SX-F provides the ideal characteristics for pros and amateurs alike.
