It is usually announced in December. It is not all behind schedule. It's just not time yet.

It seems this year not so much new things.

The 2019 KTM 450 SX-F Factory Edition will come with more powerparts/aftermarket parts than any prior FE they've done.

Hmm cone valves possibly? That would be the biggest separator I could see and would for sure one up the Honda edition suspension upgrades.

Not Cone Valve spring forks...But based on the new XACT logos, I wouldn't be surprised if there was a Cone Valve inside the AER (air) forks that they will come with.

That sounds interesting. Also gotta wonder if it will come with that extra frame brace on the engine cradle that the factory bikes are running.

Previous factory editions were just added bling. I hope KTM takes a look at what Honda did quit the all bling non sense (some is good) and give the public cone valve forks, some factory motor internals or parts that really set it apart from the following yr full production bike like Honda did.

No chance, KTMs concept is a much smarter model from a business and R&D standpoint. They get an opportunity to real world test their production model to work out any bugs while offering early adopters some extra bling all while having extra profit margin.

Honda on the other hand seemingly offers some performance upgrades for a high premium, but serious racers have little use for those upgrades as they will bolt on preferred suspension and exhaust systems. The Honda WE caters to wealthy vets or average Joe's who like to pretend they are getting a clone of KRocs factory machine.

You lost me.

The Honda Works Edition has what? Some engine work & ECU. Other than that it’s a standard model year bike with slip on exhaust, graphics, seat cover, and fork anodizing.

The KTM FE’s are actual pre-production models w/bling.

Hardly a comparison.

Y’all need a mediator. I agree and disagree with both of you. Good luck.

Regardless they are appealing to the same crowd, whatever that is lol.

Both bad ass bikes. If my situation was different (different tax bracket entirely maybe lol) id had a works edition honda. Instead ive got the left over kia (18 rmz450)

Hmm, wheels, slip-on, xtrig-copy-clamps, start device and BNG. Did I miss something?

They did it before honda in the form of the sxs and sxs-f bikes from the early to mid 00's. That's what they should do again. Would be more factory edition that the stuff they've been churning out.

Huh?....judging by the link above the KTM FE has new wheels, slip-on, xtrig-copy-clamps, start device and BNG.

The WE has wheels, BNG, HRC ECU changes, HRC 2 stage start device, coated forks, new exhaust system, different HRC type head, slight weight savings, different handblebars and still is not charged the price that you would pay for all that additional stuff, so great value for money

Agree. The Honda has a great value for the money on the WE model. All the added performance upgrades would easily surpass the extra $ on the retail price over the R model. Unless of course you have some inside connections in the industry. Just an added Yosh RS-9 Ti system on an 18 was around $1,400.00 for example on an R model.

The WE has different rims (not full wheels), a slip on exhaust, production head that's hand some hand porting, lower and upper leg coatings, black clamps instead of silver, graphics, and a seat cover. Handlesbars are the same as the standard bike and so is the launch control. The price is also higher than prior KTM FEs I believe.

The KTM we will see will likely have a slip-on exhaust or maybe a full system, complete wheels (billet hubs and rims), new triple clamps, ECU changes, graphics kit, seat cover, some suspension updates...and possibly that frame update.

KTM's prior version of this bike have had a different approach. Once every three years you're getting their new bike around 5 months early while the other two you're getting the ECU and suspension updates for the new model 5 months early, along with some small bling and a slip on.

KTM 2015 250 & 450 factory editions have products were only on that year FE and did not go into the 16 production.

The FE is basically a works bike then parts of it go to the next years production.

The second link you posted is for a full system, an aluminum/stainless version. The WE actually comes with a titanium slip-on system, which they don't even sell.

Wait, you can't ignore the fact that the FE/RE is basically the upcoming generation bike every 3 years in the FE/RE vs Honda WE discussion. You literally are able to get the next gen bike a minimum of 6 months early.

2012, 2015, 2018 (first RE bike). We don't know what Honda has planned for the WE yet. Maybe it's "only" a beefed up normal CRF with a few fancy stickers and aftermarket parts like the FE bikes have been between those 12, 15, 18 years.

Don't get me wrong, the Honda WE is a great purchase if you plan on modding your Honda. Just like the FE/RE is every year. The difference at the moment is that the KTM/Husky will actually be "the next years bike and all new" every 3 years.

I was just using it as an example for reference on an R model.


I'm aware that the WE has it's own header & slip ons that are designed for that model.

Well it won an SX championship. Dominated MX1 and MX2 overseas. Dominated GNCC and Endurocross. Not to shabby.

Did not do well in the shootouts though...aside from KTMAction magazine.
