After a successful race debut with factory rider Jonathan Barragan at the last year`s MX1 GPs we were more than excited to get or hand on the all new KTM SX-F 450. Next to Suzuki`s RM-Z 250 is KTM`s 450 the only all new 2007 model. The others are just modified 06 versions.
There is no doubt that after dominating the 125 class especially power wise KTM wants to keep the top position in the 250F class too. The Austrians were the last of the big five MX manufacturers to enter that class with a production bike in 2006 and the 2007 model already got a massive overwork.
The same look for a couple of years makes the Suzuki RM250 seems to be a little old school but that seems to be the destiny of the two strokes nowadays. Anyway there are new stickers and seat cover and the engine received some changes so things are still moving.
