Engine

The motorcycle has a compact dimension with class-leading power output KTM’s fuel-injected 4-stroke engine is the most developed and influential market.

Exhaust

Thanks to the latest exhaust system, the new 2021 350 XC-F KTM Dirt Bike has excellent power delivery and performance. It comes with a model-specific header pipe with an advanced resonator known as FDH (Flow Design Header), a small chamber around the line.

The brand new aluminum sleeves, end cap and internal design of the silencer ensure slimmer ergonomics thus making the overall motorcycle feel as narrow without compromising the regulatory noise limits.

Engine

The engine of the 2021 350 XC-F, KTM Dirt Motorcycle, features a compact and extremely light construction. Its DOHC (Double Overhead Camshaft) design comes standard with lightweight titanium valves and DLC coated cam followers, thus allowing positive but robust engine characteristics.

Airbox

The airbox used in the 2021 350 XC-F KTM Dirt Bike is brand new, ensures optimal flow dynamics and works smoothly with an intake snorkel to guarantee optimal power and throttle response. The overall design of the airbox is so efficient that it offers more excellent protection against the soiling of the air filter.

It is the same that was used in 2020 KTM 350 XC-F, makes the filter maintenance easy and quick, and does not require tools.

Frame

The high-tech and lightweight chrome-moly steel frame have a knack for easy handling, outlandish rideability, accurate cornering, and excellent stability. The rider can observe the stiffness of the structure that helps in better absorption of the energy produced from the front and rear suspension, sucking up jumps and bumps. In other words, it ensures greater comfort and low rider fatigue.

Laterally attached, lightweight aluminum engine head stays contribute inaccurate cornering and minimum vibration level. The KTM engineers managed to pull off all that, which made the frame 2.2 pounds lighter than the lightest opponent on the market.

Additionally, 2021 350 XC-F KTM Dirt Bike is extremely easy to maintain and even easier to work on and supplies ideal space for the tank and other components. The motorcycle features an extra-light subframe of aluminum that tips the scales at less than 2 pounds.

Seat

The seat of the brand new 2021 350 XC-F KTM Dirt Bike is ergonomically perfect and it has a high foam volume that gives greater comfort and reliability while keeping the overall weight low.

Handlebar

All the KTM XC models have the same high-strength aluminum tapered NEKEN handlebar. The handlebars are adjustable in four different positions, and it comes with standard with an ODI vulcanized grip on its right side and a relaxed ODI lock-on grip that does not require any wire or glue on the left.

Furthermore, an off-roader is attached with a map-select switch on the handlebar for selecting alternative engine maps. The rider also has an option to activate the Traction Control from the controller that ensures more excellent traction, especially in slippery conditions and it can be activated with the push of a button during riding.

Footpegs
