Vital MX: Just as the 450 SX-F, the Factory Edition 250 SX-F has a host of bling, but to replicate the Red Bull/Troy Lee Designs squad; including a titanium/carbon fiber FMF slip-on system. This also goes along with a series of suspension updates as found on the 450 model.

KTM Press Release: 


The combination of a powerful and torquey engine in a lightweight and agile chassis is the key to its success. A powerful – yet compact – DOHC engine, refined WP AER 48 forks, orange anodized triple clamps, an FMF titanium muffler, launch control and D.I.D. DirtStar rims make for a READY TO RACE machine that has no equal.

2017 Updates:

  • UPDATED WP AER 48 front fork with a new air seal, air piston and rebound spring on the air leg, along with a new piston on the damping side for improved performance.  
  • UPDATED settings for both the WP AER 48 front fork and rear shock.
  • Handlebar map switch that also activates traction control and launch control for enhanced traction for the start, middle and end of the race.
  • Orange anodized CNC-machined triple clamps for optimized clamping force that is tuned to the WP AER 48 front fork for exceptional handling.
  • A lightweight chromoly steel frame provides high torsional rigidity with tuned longitudinal stiffness resulting in excellent handling and energy absorption.
  • KTM’s “No Dirt” footpeg design keeps the peg’s pivot from becoming clogged, ensuring the footpeg is always in the correct position.
  • Super lightweight Galfer Wave rotors, CNC-machined hubs, high-end D.I.D. DirtStar rims and Dunlop GEOMAX MX3S tires.
  • FMF titanium slip-on muffler is lighter than the standard 250 SX-F muffler.
  • Airbox and filter design provides maximum performance with fast “no tools” air filter changes.
  • “No Dirt” shift lever prevents dirt from fouling the lever joint to ensure proper shifting in any condition.
  • Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/KTM Factory Racing Team replica graphics, orange powder-coated frame, orange anodized sprocket and front disk guard complete the READY TO RACE 2017 KTM 250 SX-F FACTORY EDITION.
