2024 KTM 450 SX-F for Sale QLD, VIC and ACT | Review Specifications, Features & Information
THE TOP OF THE FOODCHAIN
We aren't ones to brag, but with a trophy cabinet ready to rip at the seams, the KTM 450 SX-F is the epitome of a podium hunter. With 5 AMA 450 supercross titles in the last 7 seasons, the 2024 KTM 450 SX-F rolls into the paddock already armed with the learnings of past championships. It's time to extend the trophy room.
Launch Control & Quickshifter
Launch control, ENGAGED! Designed for the holeshot, the 2023 KTM SX-F range comes standard with launch control and a new Quickshifter function, allowing for fast upshifts without using the clutch. Launch control is easily engaged by pressing the traction control and Quickshifter buttons simultaneously and works by limiting the amount of power to the rear wheel, improving traction, and preventing loss of control under hard acceleration. Meanwhile, the Quickshifter function means you can bang through from 2nd to 5th gear with your focus solely on the first corner.
Selectable Maps + TC
The map select switch on the 2024 KTM SX models features a simpler design, allowing for easier functionality in switching between 2 engine maps. Map 1 provides a more linear power curve. while map 2 punches all-out with aggressive throttle and explosive power. Luckily, traction control is easy toggled to an on or off position from the same switch, ensuring maximum traction and a distinct advantage in wet or muddy conditions.
The 2024 KTM SX and SX-F range features a rider triangle, providing improved knee contact - especially when standing on the pegs - with improved gripping surfaces all around. The plastics work to expel mud buildup in wet, muddy conditions, with a flatter seat profile and high grip seat cover providing exceptional rider movement and control. The polyamide reinforced aluminum subframe further enhances rider feel and feedback.
Part of the KTM 450 SX-F's acceleration comes courtesy of years of refining gear rations to ensure the best performance possible from the large displacement engine. The transmission is also engineered to be ultra-lightweight but has the durability to perform race after race. A 13/49 secondary drive also allows for instant response out of the corners, while the 4-stoke specific gear sensor provides the option of different engine characteristics for each gear, depending on engine load.
The 2024 KTM 450 SX-F engine is tilted 2° backward, resulting in a 3mm lower front sprocket position. All of this means greatly improved mass centralization and reduced overall weight, benefiting handling and anti-squat behavior.
The 2024 KTM 450 SX-F is rock-solid at any speed thanks to a repositioned and forged steering head connection and CNC milled triple clamps. Made from high-grade aluminum, these feature optimally tuned steering stem stiffness, perfect alignment of the fork tubes, and precise geometry of the fork clamps to ensure highly responsive and smooth fork action - not to mention unwavering stability when charging across ruts and onto the podium.
Easy Suspension Adjustment
Get dialed in! The 2024 KTM SX range boasts totally tool-free suspension setup at both ends. Thanks to an all-new shock absorber design featuring hand-adjustable dual compression control, it allows riders to adjust high- and low-speed settings in a matter of seconds. On the front end, the forks are also easily adjusted thanks to a single air pressure preload valve, as well as through easy access click adjusters for compression and rebound. We'll even throw the air pump in as standard.
MORE USABLE POWER
When the war drums sound and the gate drops, you need to be the first to off the line in a bid to rule the roost. The 2024 KTM 450 SX-F boasts one of the most manic 4-stroke powerplants in the paddock, with its SOHC engine proving to be the perfect example of advanced engineering. With a peak power output of over 63 HP, and an overall engine weight of only 26.8 kg, you'll leave the competition with more than a little mud on the face.
AIR FILTER BOX
Designed to provide maximum airflow, the new air filter box is designed with precisely positioned inlet ducts aimed at preventing air deformation and maintaining filter protection. The Twin Air filter and air filter support design feature a simple fail-proof mounting system for safe and accurate filter installation, ensuring the air filter is easily accessed, without tools, by removing the left side panel, for easy track-side maintenance. A vented air filter box cover is also included for all SX and SX-F models in the by-pack.
The 2024 KTM SX and SX-F range is engineered and designed to provide riders with easy-to-access service parts, as well as suspension adjustability. This allows faster track-side and off-season maintenance, as well as making motocross more accessible for novice riders without pit crews.
No matter how gnarly the track is, you'll stay in complete control thanks to an all-new frame design that has not only been engineered for longitudinal rigidity but also repositions rotating mass closer to the center of gravity. A new shock mounting also provides improved anti-squat behavior to better traction out of corners, while the footpeg mounting position has moved inwards for less risk of hooking up in deep ruts or when scrubbing jumps.
