MX TEST: KTM 250SX-F
>If you look back at the history of the KTM 250SX-F, it’s been a story of missing pieces, flashes of brilliance and
unfinished business. The bike dates all the
way back to 2005, and it has had some
fantastic attributes but always suffered
from some fatal flaw. The motor was fast.
Then it was slow. Then it was fast again.
The suspension was bad, good, then bad
again. In all that time, it has never had
a clear shot at being the best bike in its
class, always held back by the glitch of
Now, the 2017 version of the bike breaks
the pattern. There’s no fatal flaw. The bike
is as fast as ever. The suspension and handling are right. It is the complete package.
The KTM 250SX-F has been a work in progress
for a very long time
KTM has the lightest and most powerful
bike in the 250 class. Again.
