With the 2021 Monster Energy AMA Supercross season set to kick off at NRG Stadium in Houston on Saturday, January 16, KTM has unveiled its 2021 450 SX-F Factory Edition. As the bike that will serve as the basis of the machines contested by Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Cooper Webb and Marvin Musquin in the premier class both indoors and out, the 450 SX-F Factory Edition features several upgrades over the standard model—the most notable of which is that the new Connectivity Unit comes standard. Mounted in place of the bar pad, the Connectivity Unit enables the rider to wirelessly tune the engine with a smartphone via the myKTM app.

The most notable upgrade to the MY21 450 SX-F Factory Edition is that it comes standard with KTM’s new Connectivity Unit, which enables the user to wirelessly tune the engine with a smartphone via the myKTM app.
