The 250 EXC‑F has been an established force in the E1 World Championship for years now and last year it bore Meo Antoine to the world title. In MY 2014. the feisty four-stroke hits the scene with a completely new DOHC engine that distinguishes itself from its predecessor above all with significantly more torque. The new engine. optimised frame and new bodywork turn the 250 EXC‑F more than ever into a winning bike in MY 2014. which will set a new benchmark in its class.
Spoiler. airbox cover and front fender. including headlight mask and headlight. have all been restyled for 2014. In doing so. we focussed on designing the new bodywork ergonomically and functionally in such a way that the whole motorcycle is in perfect harmony with the rider down to the very last detail. But other aspects have also been considered. For example. the designers ensured there is no ribbing whatsoever on the inside of the new front fender. thereby preventing mud build-up. Nevertheless. thanks to its skilfully selected contour and its modified attachment to the lower triple clamp. the new fender is up to 50% stiffer than its predecessor.
The crankshaft on the new 250 EXC‑F has 5% more gyrating mass available for achieving optimum traction. Similarly to last season's KTM SX-F models. it is equipped with a plain bearing in the lower conrod eye. The previous needle bearing is replaced with two press-fit bearing shells that run directly on the crankshaft's crank pin. The engine's direct pressure lubrication system ensures the necessary oil supply. This design enhances the durability of the engine. thereby enabling an extension to the service intervals for the crankshaft - a benefit in terms of time and costs.
Thanks to a completely new design of engine case. which is now manufactured in a pressure die-casting process. it has been possible to significantly reduce the wall thicknesses compared with a gravity die-cast case. A new. high-strength. aluminium alloy ensures that the case is resistant to stone impact and other damage.
The 250 EXC‑F is virtually a guarantor for top places in hard-fought enduro battles – this is substantiated not only by the numerous world titles. For the 2014 model year. KTM engineers have ignited the next evolutionary stage and developed a completely new. state-of-the-art DOHC engine that unites the concentrated engine expertise amassed from motorsport and development. The design of the new generation shares numerous basic components with the successful 350 EXC‑F engine. This results in a perceptible increase in torque. above all in the low to mid rev range (an additional 4 Nm between 6. 00 and 7. 00 rpm).
Compared with its predecessor. the new six-speed enduro gearbox. developed especially for the 250 EXC‑F. has slightly shorter transmission ratios for 4th. 5th and 6th gears. The new gearbox excels with high precision and easy shifting. The secondary transmission has also been adapted to the new gearbox.
