KTM 450 SX-F Engine Upgrades: Unleashing Unmatched Power

The heart of the 2024 KTM 450 SX-F beats stronger than ever, thanks to its impressive engine upgrades. KTM's engineers have worked tirelessly to enhance the bike's power delivery and throttle response, creating an exhilarating riding experience that leaves its competitors in the dust.

The updated SOHC engine first offered on the 2023 model boasts a displacement of 450cc with a bore and stroke of 95.0 x 63.4mm. Notably, it is more than a half pound lighter than its 2022 predecessor, weighing in at just 59 pounds. 

This engine incorporates a low-profile cylinder head design, resulting in the single cam being positioned even closer to the center of gravity. Furthermore, the intake ports have undergone revisions to optimize the airflow and ensure a more efficient path for the atomized air-fuel mixture into the combustion chamber, ultimately enhancing power delivery. 

In terms of design improvements, the valve covers have been redesigned to require only two screws, and the engine employs an oil spray jet, contributing to enhanced engine and piston cooling efficiency.

And talk about power— the 450 SX-F pulls off corners, even at low to mid RPM, with the authority needed to clear any jump.  

KTM 450 SX-F Enhanced Suspension: Conquering Every Terrain

KTM understands the importance of a smooth and controlled ride, and the KTM 450 SX-F delivers just that. With upgraded suspension components, this bike offers superior handling and stability, allowing riders to conquer any terrain with confidence.

  • For 2024, KTM upgraded the suspension:
  •  
  • Enhanced WP XACT fork configurations ensure both comfort and balance, while robustly defending against bottom-outs.
  • Rear WP XACT shock adjustments harmonize seamlessly with the new front forks.

The updated fully adjustable inverted WP Xact 48mm front fork offers 12.2 inches of travel, absorbing shocks more effectively, minimizing rider fatigue during long rides or challenging off-road adventures. The improved damping system provides better response and feedback from the terrain, allowing riders to maintain optimal control over rough surfaces.

The rear linkage-assisted fully adjustable WP Xact shock that offers 11.8 inches of travel has also received significant upgrades, including a lighter piston rod that reduces unsprung weight. This enhancement translates into faster reaction times of the damper, ensuring a smoother and more controlled ride.
