KTM announced their new 2016.5 450 SX-F and 250 SX-F Factory Editions in December 2015 and we have been chomping at the bit to try them out. We took delivery of them today and immediately wanted to give you a snippet of what all the fuss is about. Although most of the changes to the 450 and 250 KTM Factory Editions are minor from the current standard 2016 models there is one big change on both of the FE’s. WP’s 48mm AER fork. Yes, that’s an air fork on both models! Say goodbye to the WP 4CS spring fork and say hello to the new normal that KTM will be rolling out on all SX-F models, come 2017. Other changes to the 2016.5 FEs include the Akrapovic titanium slip-on muffler (450 only), FMF titanium slip-on muffler (250 only), ODI lock on grips, color anodized triple clamps, pleated seat cover, Red Bull team graphics (450 only), Troy Lee Designs team graphics (250 only), an orange frame, and D.I.D. Rims.
