Features

Bodywork

  • KTM R&D, KISKA Design and the factory racers had their say in shaping the plastics with one goal: complete harmony between rider and bike. Perfect ergonomics and contact points provide maximum comfort in movement on the EXC-F. The I-beam structures of the front and rear fenders guarantee maximum stability and a low weight thanks to well thought-out construction and mounting. They also stay cleaner for longer. Clever brake hose routing on the front number plate prevents wear and tear.

Graphics

  • New graphics convey the READY TO RACE character of the 2018 KTM EXC-F model line.

Engine

  • The light and compact KTM 250 EXC-F engine delivers class-leading torque and power over the entire rev range. The architecture with an optimized shaft configuration makes for excellent mass centralization and effortless rideability, at only 60.8 pounds. And that’s including the comfort of an E-starter. The power curve reaches for the sky over the entire length of the rev range, begging for another gear at 12,800rpm. This makes the new KTM 250 EXC-F brilliantly suited to both amateur riders as to pros at the peak of their ability.

Cylinder Head

  • The centerpiece of the compact DOHC engine is this cutting-edge cylinder head. It features light, dual overhead camshafts with friction-optimized cam followers boasting a hard DLC coating. Four lightweight titanium valves and high-flow ports maximize the flow rate for an optimal power band and outstanding performance across the seemingly endless rev range of 12,800rpm. Two lateral stays allow an efficient fixation of the engine to the frame and reduce vibration.

Crankshaft

  • The KTM 250 EXC-F’s crankshaft utilizes a short connecting rod, making for an overall compact and lightweight engine with a snappy power delivery. A plain big (bottom) end bearing with two force-fitted bearing shells runs directly on the crank pin. This design is a must for the extremely high engine speeds and the unrivaled power of this 250cc engine while also enhancing the engine’s durability for long crankshaft service intervals

Transmission

  • The engine is fitted with a precise 6-speed Enduro transmission, with solid shift engagement thanks to a special low-friction coating on the shift forks. An advanced ´No Dirt´ gear shift lever design prevents mud or dirt build-up in the joint for trouble-free rides. For 2018, the transmission shaft gets a new bearing that has a bigger overlap in the cases. This means reliability even under extremely hard conditions

E Starter

  • The KTM 250 EXC-F is fitted with a unique E-starter as standard, which is a clear advantage when it comes to crunch time in the heat of battle. A strong starter motor made by Mitsuba will fire time and time again at the push of a button. Even under extreme conditions, thanks to its more heat resistant O-ring.

Crankcases and Covers

  • The design of the die-cast engine crankcases allows for a centralized shaft configuration, moving the crankshaft close to the bike’s center of gravity. This means quick and agile handling. The engine covers feature an advanced surface structure to reduce the wear caused by the rider’s boots.

Balancer Shaft

  • To balance the mass forces, the engine uses a multifunctional balancer shaft that also drives the water pump and timing chain.

Cylinder and Piston

  • Inside the cylinder, with a bore of 78mm, thumps a reliable box-type piston made by CP. Its crown geometry is adapted perfectly to the high-compression combustion chamber (12.8:1), where its rigid structure and low weight maximize performance. Thanks to low oscillating masses, the engine revs freely with plenty of power.

Engine Management System

  • The state-of-the-art Keihin engine management system with electronic fuel injection features a 42mm throttle body. Thanks to its unique injector position, the engine’s response gives a whole new meaning to the word ‘instantaneous’. Separate circuits for cold-starting and idle make on-site adjustments easy. Push the throttle back when the engine is warmed up and the cold start mode disengages.

Clutch

  • The KTM 250 EXC-F employs the KTM-developed DDS clutch (damped diaphragm steel) with a wear-free steel basket and extremely heat resistant clutch plates and new, nitrated steel liners. This clever design employs a diaphragm spring instead of the usual coil springs, making for considerably easier clutch action. A diaphragm spring also leaves sufficient space for a damping system to be integrated into the clutch hub. The goal is traction, but durability is as well. Light operation and telepathic amounts of control are standard with this hydraulic Brembo actuated clutch

Footpegs

  • Sophisticated ´No Dirt´ footpegs prevent jamming up of the pegs, even when digging in deep ruts. The pegs on the EXC models are 6mm higher than the ones used on SX models, which benefits ground clearance. But you can swap them at will

Swingarm

  • This state-of-the-art swingarm allows for an optimized mounting position of the PDS shock absorber, providing more progressive action. Furthermore, the cast aluminum design guarantees lower weight and a perfect flex behavior. The single-component casting process also eliminates any inconsistencies and weak points.

Front Suspension

  • The WP Xplor 48 upside-down fork is a split fork developed by WP in close collaboration with KTM. It is fitted with a spring on both sides but features separated functions for each fork leg: compression damping is fitted on the left side, while rebound is on the right. So the forks can easily be adjusted with the twist of a dial on the top of the forks. New outer fork tubes and a reworked setting make for more sensitivity, improved damping behavior and a reduced weight. In addition, a sealed hydro-stop guarantees excellent resistance to bottoming-out. Due to high-quality materials and a state-of-the-art production process, the new WP Xplor 48 fork – with approx. 300mm of travel – has outstanding response and damping characteristics. A comfortable preload adjuster (standard for SIX DAYS models, retro-fittable for standard models) allows for a simple spring preload setting in three steps without tools (standard, +3mm, +6mm).

Rear Suspension

  • The WP Xplor PDS is a newly developed shock absorber. The PDS is a KTM trademark feature where the shock absorber is directly connected to the upper side of the swingarm. This setup boasts the best possible mounting geometry and provides amazingly progressive damping. The shock absorber is mounted close to the centerline, which means nearly symmetrical loads for the swingarm and frame and more space for the exhaust system. A second piston works together with a closed cup (instead of a needle) towards the end of the stroke and is supported by a progressive shock spring for exceptional bottoming resistance. Various machined and anodized components and a distinctive WP color trim make this a valuable, high-end product compared to the less refined shock absorbers of the competition.

Brakes

  • You can’t brake any harder, better, faster or stronger. High-tech Brembo calipers are combined with lightweight Wave brake discs. The steel-flex front brake hose has efficient protection and there’s an integrated channel for the speedometer cable. First you outrun them, then you outbrake them.

Triple Clamp

  • The EXC-Fs are fitted with forged triple clamps with an offset of 22mm, ensuring a solid grip of the fork and precise handling. The handlebar is adjustable forwards and backwards over 4 positions, so the EXC-F will fit you like your favorite gloves.
