The fully adjustable WP XACT rear shock features new settings for improved pressure balance and to compliment the updates to the front forks. A new billet Hinson clutch cover has been added for increased durability and to enhance the factory look.
This READY TO RACE model includes an Akrapovič slip-on silencer constructed out of lightweight titanium, orange anodized Factory triple clamps offering perfect fork alignment with no ovalization of the tubes, Factory wheels with D.I.D. Dirt Star rims for an ultralight, durable package, a Factory start for the fork to lock in holeshots and a composite skid plate to protect vital components. In addition, the bike has a semi-floating front disc ensuring maximum braking performance, a front brake disc guard, and a lightweight aluminum rear sprocket in eye-catching orange.
The new KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION has the ultimate factory look with its orange frame, Factory seat with Selle Dalla Valle logo and exclusive 2020 Red Bull KTM Factory Racing graphics. With racing at the heart of KTM, this model is the sharpest weapon in the toughest racing arenas and KTM expects nothing less than victory with the KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION for its athletes and for those who choose to race it.
