2022 KTM 350 XC-F Factory Edition First Look

Last year KTM unveiled the 350 XC-F Kailub Russell, a special-edition version of the eight-time Grand National Cross Country (GNCC) champion’s motorcycle. With Russell having retired from full-time GNCC racing at the end of last year, the Austrian manufacturer introduced a similar model for 2022 called the 350 XC-F Factory Edition.
