KTM Press Release Below:

The KTM 250 SX-F added a second AMA Supercross Lites Championship to its crowded trophy cabinet in 2015. But that’s no surprise. The successful combination of a powerful and torquey engine in a lightweight and agile chassis is bound to place the 250 SX-F onto podium after podium. Already known for its strong performance, the latest generation 250 SX-F gets even better for 2017. New WP AER 48 Air-sprung forks further enhance the stellar handling and capability of the 250 SX -F while cutting another 3 pounds of weight off what is already the lightest bike  in the class. The addition of KTM’s revolutionary TRACTION CONTROL guarantees efficient application the rear tire with better control, especially on wet and slippery tracks. It is clear - there is no equal for the KTM 250 SX-F.
