2015 KTM SX-F

2015 KTM SX-F

The 2015 KTM SX-F’s are now up on the KTM website but I have some photos I took of a bike we had in at KISKA a while ago to check that all was ok from the first production batch.  Individual model info can be found here on the KTM website. Overall I am really happy with how this this years bike looks. Besides the 450 factory replicas, in terms of color, trim and GFX the 2015 SX-F is the closest any production SX-F has been to the full on factory race bikes, with the black rims and orange frame.

This is the US spec 2015 KTM 250 SX-F with the new 4CS forks. The full list of changes for 2015 is as follows:

  • New machined cross tube in the frame provides a stronger, more accurate connection of the frame and the linkage due to an improved production process resulting in a 60-gram weight reduction. The frame is now powder-coated in KTM Factory orange
  • New linkage geometry with an improved rising rate, better control, stability, and balance
  • For the linkage there is now an improved production process for higher quality resulting in a 40 gram weight reduction
  • New WP 4CS fork specifically designed for Motocross
  • New fork lugs with a 22mm front axle for reduced weight and better feel along with a 2mm reduced off-set for improved handling
  • New fork protectors with an open design, which are easier to replace for better maintenance and cleaning of the fork leg
  • The bodywork will be decorated with updated graphics to highlight the racing character of the MY 2015 SX range of cutting-edge motocross bikes
  • New monoshock setting, which has been re-valved and set-up to match the new linkage and fork. The shock features a 4mm increase of shaft travel while maintaining the same amount of wheel travel with the new linkage package
  • New Dunlop GEOMAX MX52 tires for excellent traction in all conditions
  • New aluminum o-ring support for the lower bearing on the steering stem for a weight saving of 22 grams and a new steering stem bolt, which is also 8 grams lighter
  • New high-quality black colored Excel rims for an aggressive look and top performance
  • New softer two-compound grips

    Looks great, very fresh and light!!! It is just a bit disturbing that the rearpart base paint is orange and the 2k Part on the side is White… and the 250 Looks a bit Strange.

    Was the best way to match up the front and back. Any other variation looked strange. It works well like this imo.
