Zero's latest electric dual sport motorcycle makes its case for space in the garage.
Honda redesigns its Gold Wing from the ground up for 2018
The 2024 KTM 450 XCF-W rolls into the open class with a renewed appetite for finding the limit. Boasting an all-new chassis, suspension, race-proven bodywork, and rider-focussed ergonomics - not to mention one of the winningest 450 cc engines in the class - the KTM 450 XCF-W is ready to launch off the line with the podium firmly in its sights.Features may include:
PREPERATION MAKES PERFECTSETTING THE SAG
Getting READY TO RACE has never been easier. Thanks in part to its all-new suspension, the 2024 KTM XCF-W range boasts totally tool-free suspension setup at both ends. At the rear, our legendary, race-winning PDS technology features an all-new shock absorber design with hand-adjustable dual compression controls. This allows riders to adjust high- and low-speed settings in a matter of seconds. On the front, the forks are also easily adjusted thanks to hand-adjustable clickers on the bottom of the fork shoe and on the fork top cap, making changing settings on the fly as easy as twisting the throttle.DEEP BREATH
- Air filter box
Maximum airflow with minimal water intrusion, a new air filter box is designed with precisely positioned inlet ducts aimed at preventing air deformation and maintaining filter protection. An enduro-specific splash protector under the airbox prevents water or dirt from splashing up from the rear wheel, while the Twin Air filter and air filter support design feature a simple fail-proof mounting system for safe and accurate filter installation, ensuring the air filter is easily accessed, without tools, for fast track-side maintenance.
The powerplant in the KTM 450 XCF-W is a perfect example of advanced engineering techniques developed on the race track and transferred to the dealership floor. Offers a peak power output of over 57 hp at an overall weight of just 29 kg, this powerplant is as powerful and it is prone to winning championships. For 2024, its been designed with mass centralization in mind, tilting the engine 2° backward and repositioning the sprocket 3 mm lower, for improved center of gravity, better handling, maneuverability, and anti-squat behavior.DROP THE CLUTCH
Clutchless upshifts are the name of the game with the all-new optional Quickshifter. The function works by interrupting the ignition for a fraction of a second. This allows upshifting without the use of the clutch lever, while the throttle is fully opened. On the technical side, a sensor on the shift drum notices the force on the shift lever, sending the signal to the ECU and interrupting the ignition timing to slot the next gear in. The Quickshifter can also be deactivated via the new map select switch and is only active from 2nd to 6th gear.
ON THE CHARGEBUILT TO BE THE BACKBONE
Specifically engineered for longitudinal rigidity, the 2024 KTM XCF-W range is engineered around an all-new black powder-coated frame providing exceptional rider feedback, energy absorption, and high-speed stability. This has been achieved by repositioning the rotating masses in the frame and the inclusion of a forged steering head connection. The footrest mounts have also been moved inwards, slimming things down for less risk of hooking up. And when the ride comes to an end, a completely redesigned forged one-piece side stand ensures your enduro weapon stands proud.
